From the Paper:

"Discords are bound to arise in a society and the ingenious human mind has devised ways and means to resolve the same. The phenomenon, law, itself can be seen as a result of the quest to address potential problems. The nature has endowed people with rationality. Through the medium of State norms and institutions were created for securing social order and to attain the ends of justice. State function through its different organs and judiciary is one among them directly responsible for the administration of justice. The judiciary is the tangible delivery point of justice in a layperson's perception. Resolving disputes is fundamental to the peaceful existence of society. Therefore effective and efficient systems for determination of disputes become an obvious appendage."
