(1) Aim and Objective

The aim of the project is to study and analyse the prevalence of ADR in India and the legislative effects to achieve speedy justice.

(2) Scope and Limitation

The scope of the project extends to studying the success of the alternative dispute resolution in India and how far has legislature been successful in doing so. I tried to explain this by first starting with the early prevalence if any form of ADR. I have also mentioned the use of E-justice system in India. The project is based on doctrinal method of research as field work on this topic is quite impossible. I have mainly used the internet to obtain web articles and write ups. Due to lack of expertise and time constraints, I had to use secondary sources to do the research work which is the limitation of this project.

(3) Research questions

• Legislative efforts since pre independence.
• The current prevalence and influence of ADR in India.

(4) Chapterisation

I have divided the project into various chapters each dealing with different aspects of the topic. In the initial chapters, I have discussed elaborately the legislative efforts in India to promote ADR. Then I have discussed the various modes of ADR prevalent including E-justice system.

(5) Sources of Data

• Books
• Articles
• Journals
• Web- Journals

(6) Method of Writing

The method of writing followed in this project is both analytical and descriptive.

(7) Mode of Citation

Uniform mode of citation has been followed hinting at the Harvard Law School’s Bluebook for this project.
