Jananeethi introduced the concept of ‘litigation-free zone’ for the first time in India and proved that it was possible. The first litigation-free village in India made in 2000 in Thichoor village of Varavoor Panchayat in Thrissur district of Kerala. Jananeethi started negotiated settlement of disputes through mediation and clinical legal counseling as alternate dispute resolution (ADR) in 1992.
