The National Commission for Women has evolved an innovative concept of PMLA for
redressal and speedy disposal of cases under Legal Service Authority Act, 1987,
which has its roots in the traditional Nyaya Panchayats.
The essential features of PMLA are amicable mutual settlement and flexibility
in functioning. The NGOs in association with District Legal Aid and Advisory
Board, activists, advocates and others, organize Parivarik Mahila Lok Adalats
with the Commission's financial assistance.
