Uff oh, I am aware Lok Adalat has no jurisdiction to decide a divorce petition. All that Lok Adalat has power to do is to help the parties to come to terms, record their statements as regards their decision to dissolve the marriage by mutual consent and do all other necessary act in this direction including MC and crl. cases. However, after recording settlement, the case has to be referred back to competent court and only Court has power to dissolve marriage by decree in divorce.
That is why I advised him to atelast see some settlement happens in first forum then he has options what next to do and I never said or wrote that at Lok Adalat divorce will happen !
