2. Arbitration Conciliation & Mediation
As India continues to attract increasing amounts of foreign investment, India has emerged as an attractive destination for many Multinational Corporations (MNCs). Given the need for an efficient dispute resolution mechanism, Arbitration and Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) has emerged as a faster, cost-effective option for resolving commercial disputes and preserving business relationships. ADR in India could either be in the form of arbitration, mediation or conciliation and is recognised under the relevant Indian statute, The Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996. Since arbitration is based upon the principle of party autonomy and offers flexibility to both parties, there is an increasing trend towards resolving disputes by means of Arbitration.
Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1996 provides to the parties, to an arbitration agreement, to get their disputes adjudicated through Arbitral Tribunal with limited intervention of courts. It is understood that the arbitration gives approximately similar recovery results, till award is passed, as other legal tools, such as Sec 138 of N.I. Act. It is of much use, if company decides to foreclose such accounts and, thereby, opt for execution of arbitral awards passed therein. It gives 100 % resolution in contactable accounts.
