In India, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms have become widely recognized as effective means for resolving disputes outside of traditional litigation. Commonly used ADR methods include:

  1. Mediation: This involves a neutral third party (the mediator) facilitating negotiations between disputing parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable settlement. Mediation is voluntary, confidential, and often less adversarial than litigation.

  2. Arbitration: Arbitration entails submitting a dispute to one or more neutral third parties (arbitrators) who render a binding decision (arbitral award) enforceable in courts. It offers flexibility, confidentiality, and expedited resolution compared to litigation.
  1. Conciliation: Similar to mediation, conciliation involves a neutral third party (the conciliator) assisting parties in reaching a settlement. The conciliator may propose solutions and assist in drafting settlement terms, but the process remains voluntary and non-binding unless parties agree to a settlement.
  1. Negotiation: Negotiation is a direct and informal method where parties attempt to reach a settlement through direct communication and bargaining. It is flexible, cost-effective, and allows parties to retain control over the outcome.
  1. Court-Annexed Mediation: Several courts in India have implemented mediation programs to encourage parties to resolve disputes before formal litigation. This offers parties the opportunity to explore settlement options with the assistance of trained mediators within the court system.
  1. Online Dispute Resolution (ODR): With advancements in technology, ODR platforms are increasingly being used in India to facilitate dispute resolution online. These platforms provide a convenient and accessible way for parties to engage in negotiations, mediation, or arbitration remotely.

In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on promoting ADR mechanisms in India to alleviate the burden on courts, reduce litigation costs, and expedite dispute resolution. The Indian government, judiciary, and legal community have taken steps to raise awareness about ADR, enhance infrastructure, and streamline procedures to encourage their use as viable alternatives to traditional litigation.
