Tags: Important Days
National Legal Services Day (NLSD) is celebrated every year on 9 November in India.
It is celebrated to commemorate the commencement of the Legal Services Authorization Act, 1987, which came into force on 9 November 1995.
Legal awareness camps are organised by the State Legal Services Authorities across the country to make people aware about the availability of free legal aid on this day.
Apart from this, nationwide programs are organised every year to make people aware about the various services provided by the Legal Services Authorities.
The main objective of organising this day is to make people aware of the law to ensure justice for all, as well as to provide free legal aid and advice to the poor and weaker sections of the society.
This day was started in the year 1995 by the Supreme Court of India to provide help and support to the poor and weaker sections of the society.
The Chief Justice of India is the Chief Patron of the National Legal Services Authority and a second senior judge of the Supreme Court of India is the acting Chairman of the Authority.
