This initiative is the flagship program of Swadhar, both in Mumbai and Pune. Towards partial fulfillment of her doctoral studies in “Marriage & Divorce” and as a part of her field work, Meenakshitai contacted Mumbai City Civil Court seeking permission to meet people who were parties in divorce cases. Meanwhile a new idea of handling divorce cases for reconciliation or mutual settlement prior to being heard in court was introduced. This work was entrusted to TISS and Meenakshitai (then a professor at TISS) started attending and counseling cases at the City Civil Court. She continued this work for eight years; till in 1984 the Family Court Law was passed and Family Courts came into existence.
