DAKSH’s Access to Justice Survey is the first systematic study in India to explore the needs and expectations of the users of the judicial system—the litigants. The survey was conducted across 305 lower courts across the country and interviewed more than 9000 litigants.
The survey maps litigants’ perceptions on several issues relevant to their experiences in the judicial system, such as the factors that influence the ease with which they can access the system, their ability to use the court system to resolve disputes effectively, and the socio-economic fallout of judicial delay. The survey has gathered essential information about the background of litigants, nature of cases they are involved in, relationship between opposing litigants, and previous litigation experience.
We will share the results of this survey at the DAKSH – National Law University (Delhi) Access to Justice Conference in Delhi on 23 April 2016. Details of the event are here
