Two Tier Arbitration Procedure Permissible Under The Laws Of India: SC

Jurisprudencia India2016 | Diciembre 16
In a landmark judgment accepting the concept of ‘two tier arbitration’ or ‘second instance arbitration’, a three judge bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justices Madan B. Lokur, R.K Agrawal and D.Y Chandrachud answering a reference made in 2006 due to divergence of opinions between Justice S.B.Sinha and Tarun Chatterjee, held that arbitration clauses which provide for a two- step arbitration process are valid under Indian arbitral jurisprudence.

While holding that words ‘arbitration result’ in Clause 14 shall be interpreted as an ‘arbitration award’ the bench recorded submission by HCL’s counsel that he second part of Clause 14 of the contract was contrary to the laws of India. Justice Lokur further held that the plain language of Clause 14 specifically provided for a second arbitration, and rejected the contention that the right to file an appeal can only be created by a statute and not by an agreement between the parties as it may be so in respect of litigation initiated in courts under a statute or for the enforcement of common law rights, but that did not prevent parties from entering into an agreement providing for non-statutory appeals so that their disputes and differences could preferably be settled without resort to court processes

  1. El auténtico argumento de fondo era si permitir que impere la voluntad libremente expresada de las partes, o la ley de arbitraje de India que no contempla la apelación en arbitraje de un arbitraje concluido en laudo. Las leyes de arbitraje no contemplan todo lo habido y por haber por lo que este tribunal acierta, en mi opinión, en permitir que impere la voluntad sobre la ausencia de especificidad legislada, acierta impidiendo que una ley “imperfecta” pero que que pretende dotar a la autonomía de la voluntad de plena eficacia impere sobre la voluntad de las partes.
