15 February, 2020 , The Chancery Pavilion, Bengaluru

About Event  | Registration Form | Brochure


Arbitration in India has seen an enormous growth over the last decade. The Arbitration & Conciliation Act has definitely created a very conducive atmosphere for Arbitrations in India — both domestic and international. The improvements made in the ADR Laws will go a long way to not only improve the climate for domestic Arbitration but will also contribute to promote India as a preferred seat for International Arbitration. However, we need to work hard on building institutions that would keep the framework in place and drive home the advantage which the amendments in the Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996 have brought in.
 
On 23 December, 2015 Rajya Sabha and on 16/17 December, 2015 Lok Sabha passed two important Bills (1) The Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Bi11,2015, and (2) The Commercial Courts, Commercial, Division & Commercial Appellate Division of High Courts Bill, 2015, which were earlier promulgated as Ordinance by the Hon’ble President of India. Both these Bills are set to revolutionize the resolution of commercial disputes in India. The dispute resolution process has huge impact on the Indian Economy and Global perception on “Doing Business” in India. This is clearly indicated by World Bank rating on “ Ease of doing Business”. Following the many cases of Commercial Diputes that may occur between organizations, litigating in courts can turn out to be a fairly time consuming procedure, with no generated outcomes.

To discuss changes, issues, challenges and implications of amended Arbitration & Conciliation Bill and establishment of Commercial Courts, ASSOCHAM in collaboration with KSR & Co., (Knowledge Partner) is organizing one day Global Conference on “ Recent Changes to the Arbitration Law of India”, 15th February 2020, The Chancery Pavilion, Bengaluru.
