Jharkhand High Court noticed that the Facilitation Council proceeded with an award, with no record of failure of conciliation or parties going for arbitration.
“The expression ‘public policy’ is of wider amplitude and hence, where award passed by arbitral tribunal is against the terms of contract or against law of land for time being in force, such an award is against public policy of India and is liable to be set aside under Section 34 of Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996.”
Bombay High Court viewed that by considering delays prior to the new contract, there was a ‘patent perversity apparent on the face of the award’.
The Supreme Court explained that the older Act enabled the Court to modify an award, a power which was consciously omitted by Parliament while enacting the 1996 Act, hinting towards exclusion of power to modify an award.
The Indian Arbitration Leadership Roundtable organized by the India International Arbitration Centre (IIAC) witnessed in-depth discussion over various important facets of Institutional Arbitration.
