The goal of the Ordinance is to improve the efficiency and reliability of arbitration as a private dispute-resolution mechanism in India. Among other things, it imposes strict time limits on when arbitrations must be concluded, limits court involvement including with respect to jurisdictional issues , and allows parties to non-Indian seated arbitrations to obtain interim relief from Indian courts. The Ordinance reflects many of the recommendations contained in a report by the Law Commission of India that sought to address perceived inadequacies in the Act.

In this post, we analyse some of the questions and ambiguities that may arise in the applicability of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act. Section 34 2 of the Arbitration Act provides two sets of grounds on which an award may be set aside. Section 34 2 a sets out grounds of challenge such as incapacity of a party, invalidity of the arbitration agreement, lack of proper notice of appointment of the arbitrator or of the arbitral proceedings or inability of a party to present his case, an award which deals with disputes not submitted to arbitration, improper composition of the arbitral tribunal or arbitral procedure contrary to the agreement between the parties, etc. These grounds must be established by the party challenging the award, on the basis of the record of the arbitral tribunal. Section 34 2 b of the Arbitration Act provides that an award may be set aside if the court finds that the subject-matter of the dispute is not capable of settlement by arbitration or if the award is in conflict with the public policy of India.
Ramasubramanian, JJ has held that Section 87 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, must be struck down as manifestly arbitrary under Article Section 87 as introduced by the Arbitration and Conciliation Amendment Act, states that amendments made to the Act by the Arbitration and Conciliation Amendment Act, will not apply to court proceedings arising out of or in relation to such arbitral proceedings irrespective of whether such court proceedings are commenced prior to or after the commencement of the Arbitration and Conciliation Amendment Act, It also states that the aforesaid amendments will apply only to arbitral proceedings commenced on or after the commencement of the Amendment Act and to court proceedings arising out of or in relation to such arbitral proceedings. The Court noticed that the introduction of Section 87 would result in a delay of disposal of arbitration proceedings, and an increase in the interference of courts in arbitration matters, which defeats the very object of the Arbitration Act, , which was strengthened by the Amendment Act. Section 87 was introduced after deleting Section 26 of the Amendment Act which stated that the Amendment Act will not apply to the arbitral proceedings commenced, in accordance with the provisions of Section 21 of the principal Act, before the commencement of this Act unless the parties otherwise agree but this Act shall apply in relation to arbitral proceedings commenced on or after the date of commencement of this Act.
