State Women Development and Social Welfare Director S Ashwasthy inaugurated the clinic in the office of the district collector here yesterday in the presence of District and Sessions judge Gyanaranjan Purohit and OSLASA member secretary Sashikant Mishra.

Ashwasthy said by providing free legal aid and counseling to the victims of domestic violence and social injustice, the clinic would go a long way in providing justice to the needy people.

“The clinic would provide free legal aid services, legal advice in how to draft petitions, notices, replies, applications and obtaining other required documents,” said a district official.
       
Free counseling would also be given to litigants in resolving the disputes amicably without going through litigation.
