Under Section 7 Arbitration And Conciliation Act 1996 And Arbitration Agreement

The Panel acknowledged that consideration of whether or not a valid arbitration agreement existed could lead to delays, as important evidence and arguments can be relied upon on the same point, and therefore recommended the removal of the clause (6A). The Commission, in order to reduce judicial interference in arbitration proceedings, drew on different regimes vis-à-vis Singapore, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, etc., and recommended similar systems in India, as it would avoid delays and create a dynamic for institutional arbitration in India. 8. (1) In this section, “arbitration agreement” means an agreement between the parties to submit to arbitration all or part of any dispute that has or has not been concluded between them concerning a defined contract. The Committee`s recommendations, which (a) fully outline the power to appoint arbitrators to arbitration institutions and (b) the omission of Article 6 (A), which requires a court to delve into the existence of an arbitration agreement before progressing in an application submitted pursuant to Section 11, are accompanied by an element of uncertainty and ambiguity. The most common problem that will likely arise will be a party challenging the validity of the arbitration agreement as a pole opposed to a party that will file an application pursuant to Section 11. Explicit rules and guidelines must be developed and implemented if the above task is to be assigned to the arbitration institutions. The status quo is insufficient and suffers from various weaknesses. The 2018 bill does not provide specific details on the scope of the role of the AIT and its powers, which is quite essential if the ICA is to be accredited to institutions eventually appointed by the Supreme Court and the High Court to appoint arbitrators, and even to determine the existence of a valid arbitration agreement (if this is to be expected in the future). In addition, the procedure must be defined where a party challenges the validity of the arbitration agreement itself. The parties must agree to refer arbitration proceedings to settle disputes in “in writing.” (b) an exchange of letters, telexes, telegrams or other telecommunications 1 [including electronic communications] that provide a record of the agreement; Or because of increasing technological improvements and their adoption in different sectors, the 2015 amendment now provides that if two parties enter into an arbitration agreement on electronic communications, it would be a valid agreement.
