CADR Work Process  

What it does:

The main objects of CADR are as follows:

  • To establish, encourage and provide facilities for alternative dispute resolution.(ADR)
  • To establish and run centre for adr and for resolution of disputes by conciliation, mediation
    and arbitration.
  • To provide panels of conciliators, mediators, arbitrators and early neutral evaluators to assist litigants to resolve their disputes expeditiously and assist courts to reduce the backlog of cases.

How does ADR work?

When a party approaches the ADR Centre, the co-ordinator of the centre invites the other party informing him/her advantages of ADR in resolving disputes through various modes of ADR. The trained Arbitrators, Mediators and Conciliators thereafter facilitate the parties to come to an agreement, which is voluntarily arrived at between the parties. The Agreement / Consent Terms signed by the parties and the Arbitrator / Mediator is like a Decree of the Court or an Award of the Arbitrator. The process is totally transparent and the Arbitrators, Conciliators and Mediators are totally impartial and fair and have no vested interest. The process is totally Confidential and even the Advocates can appear to assist their clients in the process of ADR. If during the process any of the party is not satisfied, the party can approach the Centre’s ADR Co-ordinator to appoint another Mediator or Conciliator. If the parties loose faith in the ADR itself, they are free to terminate the ADR process and seek course to the Court of Law. If any party commits breach of the Agreement / Consent terms, the other party can enforce the same as Decree of the Court.

What are the cost in the ADR?

When party approaches ADR Centre with the dispute, the party pays Rs. 500/- as initial fees. The Centre’s Co-ordinator contacts the opposite party and invites his/her consent. Once the parties agree to resolve their disputes by ADR, the Co-ordinator suggests the names on the Panel of Arbitrators, Conciliators and Mediators and advises the parties taking into consideration the nature of the dispute and the level of the expertise required.

Both the parties have to consent to the name of the Arbitrator/Conciliator/Mediator. After finalization of the name of the Arbitrator/Conciliator/Mediator, the Rules of the Centre for Arbitrator/Conciliator/Mediator shall apply (which can be obtained from the Centre on payment of Rs. 200/-)

The cost of the ADR shall be divided equally between the parties, unless it is otherwise agreed.
