Alternatives to litigation: Arbitration can be said as a simplified version of a trial involving limited discovery and simple rules of evidence. In India, arbitration is governed by Law of Arbitration which states that for adopting the arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism, an agreement to that effect should be signed between the disputing parties. An arbitral panel heads the arbitration which comprises of either one arbitrator selected by both parties, or each side selects one arbitrator and the two arbitrators elect the third. The panel then deliberates and issues a written decision, or arbitral award. Arbitration has long been used in labor, construction, and securities regulation, but is now gaining popularity in other business disputes.

Arbitrations in India are either:

  • Ad hoc arbitrations.
  • Institutional arbitrations.

Procedure of Arbitration in India:

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).
