CJI Opens NALSA Citizen Service Center


India’s Chief Justice UU Lalit inaugurated NASA’s Center for Citizen Services office at Jaisalmer House here on Tuesday. CJI Uday Umesh Lalit is the chief patron of the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA).

Justice DY Chandrachud, who is Executive Chairman of NALSA, Justice SK Kaul and other Supreme Court Justices were also present on the occasion.

CJI commended Judge Chandracud and legal services authority officials for making a leap forward in meeting the needs of free legal aid recipients.

Lalit said this is a historic moment for NALSA in establishing a center dedicated to citizen services in the delivery of effective legal aid in the country.

Justice Chandracud said the Citizen Service Center would prove to be a great way to provide effective legal services to the common man without any hassle.

He expressed his delight that the center propels awareness of NALSA to the people as it is a central and easily accessible location equipped with all technological facilities.

Judge Kaul also applauded NALSA’s efforts and commended all officials in the legal services institutions.

The NALSA office which was previously located at Jamnagar House was relocated to the additional building complex of the Supreme Court of India on 9 November 2021.

The Jaisalmer House space that has been provided to NALSA would be used for the establishment of a Citizen Legal Aid Center, NRI Legal Aid Center, Training Center and a digital command center to deliver futuristic legal services across the country.

NALSA was incorporated under the Legal Services Authority Act 1987 to provide free legal services to the weaker part of society and to organize Lok Adalats for the out-of-court settlement of disputes.
