Scope of judicial interference with arbitral awards: A journey from Renusagar’s case to Ssangyong’s case to the Ordinance 2020

Section 5 of the Act of 1996 provides for limited intervention of the courts in the arbitral proceedings. Section 35 thereof attaches ‘finality’ to the arbitral award and, as per Section 36(1), an award holder has to wait for a period of 3 months after the receipt of the award prior to applying for its enforcement and execution. During the intervening period, the award may be challenged in accordance with Section 34 of the Act of 1996. The legislature has narrowed down the grounds for making a challenge to the arbitral award and the courts will not interfere until and unless the findings made in the award fall within the scope of Section 34.
