   The details in respect of Labour Courts and Industrial Tribunals falling in the State Sphere are not maintained centrally.
    Following steps have been taken for expeditious disposal of cases in CGIT-cum-LCs:
(i)  A Scheme of Holding of Lok Adalats as an “Alternative Grievance Redressal Mechanism” for speedy disposal of industrial disputes has been made indispensable part of the adjudication system from XI Plan;
(ii) A system of link officers amongst Presiding Officers has been introduced to ensure that the judicial work of the CGIT-cum-LCs does not suffer when the post of regular Presiding Officer is vacant due to administrative exigencies; 

iii) Process of appointment to the Post of Presiding Officer is initiated about eight months in advance so that the successor to a serving presiding officer is selected by the time of completion of his tenure in a CGIT-cum-LC;
(iv) Presiding Officers of CGIT-cum-LCs have been advised to hold camp courts; and 
(v) Conference of Presiding Officers is held from time to time to explore strategies for speedy and effective disposal of cases.

  This information was given by Minister of Labour and Employment Shri   Mallikarjun Kharge  in reply to a written question in the Rajya Sabha today.
