In any culture, disputes are very normal, but there are also resolving mechanism that function according to their traditions. In the absence of a structured legal and justice system, the Jirga system is a dispute resolution authority in Pakistan's tribal districts. This research examines the history of the Jirga system and various kinds of Jirga system, as well as its historical context and definition. The research further elaborates the Jirga system's procedures as to how a Jirga continues and settles a dispute between the parties to the conflict. In accordance with the essence of a dispute, the Jirga continues. In Erstwhile FATA, a structured justice system on the model of settled areas is not in effect.
