under the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987. The
objective of the Mission is to organize Legal Literacy
Campaign at all level to achieve maximum benefit in the
given period of five years.
The purpose of the Mission is to visualize knowledge
through legal education that lends dignity to people.
The Mission aims at education on legal rights,
constitutional obligation, right to information on the
benefits of legal aid and the system of accessing legal
aid through the Legal Services Authorities / Committees.
By taking law to the masses through informal learning
technique, the legal education to be imparted will help
in rising consciousness of the citizen and thereby make
justice accessible and affordable to the people.
The main features of the Mission are as under :
a)To achieve 100% legal literacy.
b)To target the most disadvantaged, distraught,
disintegrated, vulnerable and victimized populace first
and progress further in the grass-root level.
c)To prepare State Specific Plan of Actions for
implementation of objective of the Mission.
d)To undertake survey, research, documentation drive,
social investigation reporting and social audit as a
learning exercise of people’s problems, grievances and

particularly to that of women and children, dalit and
minorities, tribal and such other most vulnerable groups
as well as persons in custody in addition to
