The district court is generally too far from them to approach for any redressal or case,” Subhash Choudhary, district legal aid officer said.DLSA has a simple screening process for appointing PLVs which includes filling up a form and undergoing a training about legal awareness “We had sent some names of anganwadi workers from villagers to be trained as para legal volunteers.
More than in cities, there is a need for setting up a network of volunteers in rural areas.
However, due to the election process, the further action regarding this could not be taken.
Once the general assembly elections are over, we may be able to allow them to attend the training for PVLs,” Rajnish Sinha, programme officer and women and child development in charge at Indore said.
INDORE: In the first batch of para legal volunteers training, 62 potential PLVs were trained by district legal aid service authority (DLSA), as against the sanctioned strength of minimum 250 volunteers for Indore district Lagging much behind in appointing volunteers, DLSA is facing hardship in getting the right candidates.The DLSA had also written to women and child development department as well as the school education department to seek help from anganwadi workers or teachers in government schools in remote areas to work as para legal volunteers.The volunteers who are appointed as PLVs are asked to conduct awareness programmes in villages where people might not know about their legal rights relating to consumer rights, bribery, domestic violence, land right issues etc.“People who can work on ground-level are best suited to be PVLs.
