According to the statement there are a total 676 District Legal Services Authorities (DLSAs) in the country which are headed by the District Judges who acts as Chairman of the authority.

Various legal aid and awareness programmes are run by NALSA through DLSAs and State Legal Services Authorities (SLSAs). The DLSAs also contribute towards reducing the burden on courts by regulating Lok Adalats conducted by NALSA.
