Welcome to the world of new beginning, Vidhikarya Legal Services. We are elated to bring out a new and better ways of seeking and rendering services in this area. Legal service sector has been attracting quite some attention recently from many entrepreneurial minds in the country. At the same time the Government has also been trying endlessly to bring in the much-needed change so that people have access to legal services. Well, to be true not much has happened even after 7 decades of getting independence. This does not mean that agencies are not putting right effort or mind. It’s just that this sector has its own inherent ways because of which systemic problems have become so deep rooted that we take them to be normal way of life. Honestly, that’s so untrue.
Since India is a melange of multiple diversity where one can find a stark absence of uniformity in terms of literacy, value systems, ways of life etc. but unfortunately there is an insane degree of uniformity and similarity when a something has to be shown and understood in a manner it is not supposed to be. It is Idiosyncratic behaviour of people of this country to look at certain section of people with awe and apprehension. Lawyers and Advocates being one group of people who are looked at with awe by the commoner and this makes them feel that talking to a Lawyer is a difficult ballgame.
Like few other professions in India, Advocates profession has its own cultural and professional arrangements because of which extracting a meaningful information which can satisfy Clients’ queries about hiring a Lawyer cannot be obtained easily. This adds to the already apprehensive minds of the people. Similarly, the Indian Judicial system has also not been able to make a progressive and positive impression on the mind of the people.
So, what is the need of the hour? Nothing but a constructive disruption. Disruption in the thoughts, disruption in the ways legal services are consumed and provided, disruption in the culture and ultimately two herculean size disruptions, badly needed in the society, accessibility and affordability.
We intend to shake the present system and reconstruct the sector having two pronged approach for both Clients and Lawyers by introducing Vidhikarya, Vidhik Mitra ( विधिक मित्र ), Vidhikarya Kiosks and other offerings from our team to make legal services accessible to all.
