Naavi.org was born when India stepped into being a Digital Society with the passage of Information Technology Act 2000. Now after 15 years, we are standing on the threshold of another major transformation in India, this time in the Dispute Resolution process.
There is first an adoption of the Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanism to overcome the litigation related delays. Then the ADR itself is getting ready to transform itself into Online Dispute resolution (ODR) mechanism.
This ADR adoption and then ADR to ODR transformation will engage the attention of thought leaders in the coming days. Just like paper based contracts migrated to digital contracts with ITA 2000, now the physical litigation society is taking a hop to an ADR society still in physical space and then a jump to the digital ODR society.
In between, the missing step is now being provided by Naavi.org to assist a smooth transformation of the dispute resolution mechanism from Court based litigation to Physical society ADR and then onto Digital Society ODR. In this process, Naavi.org will collaborate with established ADR institutions to bring about the adoption of ADR and then take over the responsibility for guiding the ADR transformation into ODR.
This should enable interested professionals to take up ADR first and then look at ODR as a professional career. Since Ujvala Consultants P Ltd, the parent company that owns Naavi.org has also co-promoted the ODR platform through odrglobal.in, professionals who are ready to take up ODR will have a ready platform to use their skills.
ODR Global also offers “Back Office Services” as an adjunct to its ODR services small ADR firms and individual ADR professionals can take advantage of these back office services and transform themselves from ADR to ODR using the virtual ODR platform provided by ODRGLOBAL.IN
It is proposed that under the Cyber Law Compliance Center (CLCC), Naavi.org will develop an incubation forum for Professionals interested in ADR and ODR to prepare them for handling ADR/ODR for their clients.
For this purpose, an operational “Guide to ODR” will also be developed and made available on subscription basis to the members of the ADR2ODR Transformation Center at a nominal price.
Watch out for the details on this proposed transformation center and contribute your thoughts to make it useful to the community.
P.S: The Transformation Center would be called the “Global Forum of Virtual ODR Professionals “
