As a peace maker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good person”. 

As we know that in Mediation the parties have in interest to settlement but unable for Negotiation at this point the Mediator the third party assists the parties which are bond with the agreement, so there is to be course of Action required to resolve the dispute between the parties.

The concept of mediation recognition in India as the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947. The conciliators were appointed under section 4 of the Act, charged with the duty of mediating in and promoting the settlement of Industrial disputes.

Distinguished between Mediation and Conciliation

At present the commission is aware about the multiple meanings co-exist for many ADR terms. Both of the terms that are the mediation and conciliation continue to be used interchangeably in this jurisdiction at present and the difference between conciliation and mediation is not very clear. Dowling Hussey said the conflicting and contradictory definitions which are used in these two distinct areas is to create some degree of uncertainty, Logic would suggest that both users or Practitioner are less likely to use of recommend something which was not fully understand because it will do such confusion. As per Article 21 of the CPC which provides that “to reconcile the parties is part of the judge’s mission”. Judicial conciliation as we can say that can be implemented by the judge himself or by a conciliator to whom he will have delegated his mission to reconcile. Article 131-1 of the CPC provides that the judge may appoint the mediator if the parties agree. The conciliation is free for the parties. Mediation is a chargeable service.

In Mediation help easily foundation based on justice (Substantive & Procedure) without raw power to compel participation. However many cases were settled at mediation and there are some of cases where it’s remain unresolved because of some dispute.

Mediation benefits the parties by which company reputation were not infringe and social matter were not created much more from Media side which must be confidential matter vice versa. After discuss is the issue which are presenting challenges to the settlement process & help the parties to focus narrowly the financial focus of their discussions. Now a days Mediation is widely utilized and area where the practice of mediation itself may be it will further developed. That how the BCI given the Interest in the Mediation because when the public must be got the benefit when the better education about it, more research into mediation need to be done and mediation must be more fully institutionalized, mediation services must be more fully funded, and new applications for mediation must be discovered.
