Arbitration


"When two great powers disagree about anything - it doesn't matter what-
they must find a way to settle it somehow by arbitration or by negotiation , not by war or threat of war"

India is infamous for having heavily overburdened legal system that leads to indefinite delays in the disposal of court cases. Inefficiencies in its legal infrastructure have been widely criticised. The lack of a stable, cost-effective and conclusive dispute resolution system ensuring quick enforcement of commercial contracts, easy recovery of monetary claims and award of just compensation for damages has been the root cause for India's very low ranking internationally for "ease of doing business". Disputes are inevitable and integral part of the commercial activities. A recent survey has revealed that over 80% of Indians considered arbitration as the preferred system for amicable dispute resolution. The government is keen to ensure that India becomes a hub of "International Arbitration" and has taken certain bold, corrective and timely measures in October 2015 to amend the Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1996. 

Arbitration involves two parties in a dispute who agree to work with a disinterested third party in an attempt to resolve the dispute. Arbitration permits the parties in dispute to choose adjudicators with the necessary special expertise related to the aspects under dispute.
