    Hi, my name is usha I’m an Advocate i ‘m preparing for civil judge exam . The study materials which are uploaded is very helpful to mains. So I’m very thankful to you sir 🙏


    I have gone through the contents of this notes pretty fruitful, I would like to highlight that the difference between act of 1996 with the amendments that took in 2019 can those differences be added in tabular form. it would be much conveying and easy to drive to the conclusions. these differences usually come in exams as well as other judicial examinations. Since ADR is not subjected to CPC and evidences how the process of ADR is made subjective that should be added. I was unable to find the answers of my queries. it shall be grateful of you if i get those answers.
