LEGAL AID CAMP 2016
LEGAL AID CAMP– 2016 This year Legal Aid Camp was organized at Khanapur, taluka Haveli, district Pune. Khanapur is the village which is situated at about 25k.m away from Pune. Visit to Khanapur was a memorable event. Students experienced the warm hospitality extended by villagers and at the same time found that villagers who are either illiterate or not that much educated were having practical knowledge in depth. Students interacted with villagers and authorities and members of Gram- Panchyat and tried to understand their problems and hurdles in enforcement of their rights. They observed that due to hike in prices of immovable properties in Pune, in nearby villages property disputes are constantly increasing, so the students shared with villagers legal knowledge as to proprietary rights and various governmental schemes for needy people. This visit made them to realize the reality of the society and how a change in the life of these farmers can be brought by a determination and dedicated efforts of people from legal fraternity. This camp was a success and the legal aid cell achieved its objective of contributing to the society.
