    13th Jul, 2022


The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Law and Justice has recommended substantial changes to the Mediation Bill. The panel has particularly cautioned the Centre against making pre-litigation mediation compulsory. 

Scope of mediation

  • Definition- Mediation is a way of resolving conflicts where two or more parties decide to reach an agreement with a support of a third, neutral party that guides them through the process. The term “mediation” entails pre-litigation mediation, online mediation, and conciliation.  
  • Time Limit- The time limit for a mediation proceeding shall be 180 days from the date of first appearance before the mediator.
  • Who can become a mediator? A person of any nationality can be a mediator under the Bill, provided that a foreign mediator’s qualifications satisfy the requirements as may be specified by the Council.
