It may be mentioned that the main thrust of Lok Adalats is on compromise. While conducting the proceedings, a Lok Adalat acts as a conciliator and not as an arbitrator. Its role is to persuade the parties to hit upon a solution and help in reconciling the contesting differences. When no compromise is reached, the matter goes back to the court.
