By the Divine Grace of Swami, SSSSO Kerala is having different Wings to work among different categories of people. Sai Neethi is organising programmes among the legal fraternity.
Sai Neethi was inaugurated by revered the then All India President of SSSSO, Sri. V. Srinivasan around ten years ago at Sai Centre, Aluva in Ernakulam district.
With the infinite grace of our most beloved Bhagawan, two of its members got elevated as Judges in High Court, Kerala.
Sai Neethi is proud to have accredited by Kerala Legal Services Authority (KELSA), under honourable High Court of Kerala. The major activities of Sai Neethi include:

Work closely with SSSVIP wing for the development of rural areas along with KELSA. Recently we got an opportunity to present the various activities being conducted under SSSVIP before more than 200 judicial officers in the High Court premises. This was organised by KELSA. As a follow-up of this, KELSA has decided to associate with SSSSO Kerala in the implementation of SSSVIP in different parts of the state.
Sai Neethi State Coordinator Adv. Vijayakumar addressed the Chairman of District Legal Service Authorities (DLSAs) and Taluk Legal Services Committees and Secretary of DLSAs on 3rd Feb 2018 in the Banquet Hall of High Court of Kerala. Honourable Chief Justice Sri Antony Dominic delivered the presidential address in this meeting. In the 15 mins long speech, Sai Neethi presented the “Model Village” project undertaken under SSSVIP. In many places, the local Judicial Officers are attending our meetings of SSSVIP. They have also started visiting our adopted villages along with our sevadals. Their presence and involvement have taken this project to greater heights. As Judicial Officers are involved, many of the local problems are resolved instantly.

With the divine guidance & Grace of our most beloved Bhagawan, Sai Neethi has commenced steps to convert Moozhinada, an adopted village under SSSVIP into a ‘Litigation free self-reliant Panchayat in the District’ under ‘Model Village’ programme. As a pilot project, a preliminary survey was conducted to get acquainted with the ground realities of the village. A long pending civil case of a visually challenged lady was amicably settled, and the heart surgery of a 4-year old kid was performed at Sai Hospital in Bangalore. Currently, as part of the legal services activities envisaged by the Kerala Legal Services Authority, Sai Neethi & DLSA intent to fulfil its mission of converting Moozhinada into a Litigation free village, wherein electricity & drinking water supply is ensured for all, making the villagers beneficiaries of all respective Government welfare schemes. Making the village pollution free is a herculean task as there are many stone quarries working in the area which is making most of the villagers victims of cancer.
Last year we conducted a “Seminar on Medico Legal Cases” under the joint auspices of Sai Neethi and Sai Med in Palakkad district. Honourable Justice of High Court of Kerala Sri PB Suresh Kumar inaugurated the programme. Smt K.P. Indira, District Judge and Adv. Sudheer, Bar Association President, Palakkad have attended the programme.
In Kollam district, Sai Organisation’s District Office Bearers were invited for a meeting with District Judge AK Gopakumar and KELSA Secretary Sub Judge Sri Sudhakanth R at MACT Court Punalur in February 2018. The meeting discussed various aspects of SSSVIP and how KELSA could collaborate with us in various village activities, especially in tribal areas. In continuation to this meeting, a Survey was conducted in tribal villages, jointly by involving KELSA and our sevadals. Further to this, KELSA invited us to setup a kiosk in one of the “Legal Aid Camps” organised by KELSA in March 2018. This kiosk was setup to provide information and awareness of the various activities of SSSVIP to the villagers staying in tribal areas. We were the only external Organisation invited to this programme. District team of KELSA, along with Excise, Police, State Tribal Development, Health and Human Resource departments of Government Kerala had also setup their kiosks providing various information for the tribal people living in the east side of Kollam forest area. Further works are also being planned along with the support of KELSA in new tribal areas.
