This ordinance, which may be referred to as The Conciliation Courts Ordinance, 1961, was passed in order to create Conciliation Courts and allow parties to certain disputes to be resolved through conciliation. It encompasses the entirety of Pakistan. The cases that are included and excluded from the Conciliation Courts’ authority are listed in Section 3 of this   Ordinance in accordance with the schedule. To establish the Conciliation Court, a request must be submitted to the chairman of the union council. Only when the parties to the dispute usually live within the same Union Council’s jurisdiction as the offence or cause of action, shall the Conciliation Court have jurisdiction to try the case.

Conciliation Court can also award compensation according to the provisions of this Ordinance. An appeal can be made against the decisions of the Conciliation Court but provisions of The Limitation Act, 1908 shall apply.
