A three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court comprising Hon’ble Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, Hon’ble Justice Navin Sinha and Hon’ble Justice Krishna Murari came down hard on a petitioner who approached the Supreme Court, challenging the final order passed by the High Court of Delhi in an Arbitration case.
What happened on the day of the hearing?
Before the Delhi High Court the Petitioner impugned an Order, whereby the arbitral tribunal had dismissed the application filed by the petitioner under Order VII Rule 11 (a) and (d) read with Section 151 CPC for rejection of the counter claim filed by the respondent.
After listening to the submissions made by the counsel of the petitioner, the Court referred to its judgment passed in Deep Industries Limited vs Oil and Natural gas Corporation Limited & Another and stated that the Court was not happy with the fact that people approach a writ Court in Arbitration matters.
