Alternatives to litigation:

Often out-of-court negotiation, mediation or arbitration is considered best path for a positive conclusion. In India, to use arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism, an agreement to that effect should be signed between the disputing parties. There could be a separate arbitration agreement or parties can opt to include an arbitration clause in the main contract. The arbitration agreement or clause should clearly specify that any dispute will be resolved through arbitration only. It should also mention the number of arbitrators to be appointed and manner of their appointment. In India, arbitrators are appointed in odd numbers only. Arbitrator should be an unbiased independent third party who can resolve the dispute between conflicting parties in an impartial manner.


Arbitrations in India are either:

  • Ad hoc arbitrations.
  • Institutional arbitrations.


Large commercial disputes in India are normally settled by ad hoc arbitrations with the Arbitration Act as the governing legislation. Some parties also opt for dispute resolution under the rules of a particular arbitration institution. Indian arbitration organizations include the:

  • Delhi International Arbitration Centre.
  • Indian Council of Arbitration.
  • Construction Industry Arbitration Council (CIAC).
  • Indian Council of Arbitration (ICA).
