Welcome to Delhi Government Mediation Center
Mahatma Gandhi in his autobiography described his experience at amicable dispute resolution as an exercise in uniting parties riven asunder. This is really the essence of mediation. Justice delivery is the primary responsibility of judges and judicial officers as it is they who are given the task of interpreting the laws and adjudicating disputes.

Keeping both in mind, that is, the experience of Mahatma Gandhi as well as the primary duty of judicial officers, the Delhi Mediation Centre (started by the District Courts in Delhi) has evolved a unique method of alternative dispute resolution which can best be described as 'judicial mediation'.

This form of dispute resolution was initiated by a Committee appointed by the Chief Justice of India consisting of Hon'ble Judges of the Supreme Court, a Judge of the Delhi High Court, Senior Advocates and a judicial officer as being best suited to the needs of litigants in India and in consonance with the social ethos of our country. In this background, even though judicial officers were trained by American experts in mediation, the Delhi Mediation Centre did not adopt the mediation models prevailing in America but developed its own unique model which seeks to realize the vision of Mahatma Gandhi, through judicial officers who need to be encouraged, even otherwise, to resolve disputes in a spirit of compromise and settlement, which is also envisaged by Section 89 of the Code of Civil Procedure.

Chief Minister
New Delhi, Nov 3 (IANS) To provide speedy justice and reduce backlog of pending cases in city courts, the Delhi government Tuesday decided to open mediation centres across the national capital.
The centre, inaugurated by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, will cater primarily to the residents of East Delhi and Northeast Delhi. It will help resolve disputes related to land, family matters, row between neighbours and cheque bounce cases before they reach the courts.
The initiative was mooted through the office of the Chief Justice of India to reduce the number of pending cases in city courts. Mehta said the Law department is conducting training sessions for police personnel on the nature of cases that could be referred to these mediation centres.
