Alternatives to litigation: Out-of-court negotiation, mediation or arbitration is often considered best path to a positive conclusion. 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. Arbitration clause or an arbitration agreement should clearly specify that the matter will be resolved through arbitration only and should also specify the number of arbitrator to be appointed and process of their appointment. In India arbitrators are to be appointed in odd numbers only.

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).
