Welcome to NCDR
It was founded under the patronage of the former Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Pakistan, Saiduzzaman Siddiqui.
The vision was to improve the business climate of Pakistan and reduce the burden on the judiciary, so that cases can be effectively delivered and to provide the people with an alternative - a time-efficient, cost-effective and strictly confidential way to resolve their disputes amicably. The Centre has given recommendations to the governments for the implementation of ADR in Pakistan.
It has also drafted the “Mediation Bill 2014” and submitted it to the Federal Government. The Centre also recommends amendments in the High Court Rules related to Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR).
