Honble Acting Chief Justice of Orissa High Court Launched website of Odisha State Legal Services Authority
The poor, illiterate, weaker sections in our country suffer day in and out in their struggle for survival. They are unable to approach the appropriate courts of law on account of their poverty and ignorance of their legal rights even though they suffer injustice. In order to overcome such situation and to provide access to justice for all Odisha State Legal Services Authority (OSLSA) provides free legal Services to the Weaker Sections of the Community to ensure that opportunities for securing justice are not denied to any citizen by reason of economic or other disabilities.
In this context the new website of Odisha State Legal Services Authority www.oslsa.nic.in developed by NIC was inaugurated by Hon’ble Kumari Justice Sanju Panda, Acting Chief Justice of Orissa High Court and Executive Chairperson of Odisha State legal Services Authority on 17.02.2020 at 4.30 PM at OSLSA, Cuttack, Odisha.
