New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Justice of India N.V. Ramana chaired the inaugural session of the first All India District Legal Services Authorities (DLSA) Saturday.

Organised by the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA), the two-day event is being held at Vigyan Bhawan. Speaking at the event, PM Modi said: “This is the time of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Kal’. This is the time for those resolutions that will take the country to new heights in the next 25 years. Ease of justice is as important as the ease of doing business and the ease of living in this amrit yatra (divine journey) of the country”.

Union Minister for Law and Justice Kiren Rijiju, Justices U.U Lalit, and D.Y. Chandrachud were among those who attended the event.

The meeting is aimed at creating an integrated system to bring “homogeneity and synchronisation” across DLSAs, a press release from the event said.

There are a total of 676 District Legal Services Authorities (DLSAs) in the country, each deaded by a district judge who acts as chairman of the authority.
