It is however important in such application that the applicant demonstrates urgency, or any potential damage/ injury likely to be caused to the applicant.

In absence of a procedure prescribed in the contract for the appointment of arbitrator, or, if any party is not exercising its right to appoint an arbitrator, or, when both the arbitrators appointed by parties are unable to choose a chairman of the arbitral tribunal, then the parties can move to the Hon’ble High Court for the appointment of arbitrator by filing an application under Section 11 of the Arbitration and Reconciliation Act, 1996.

Challenging the Appointment of Arbitrators under section 13:
The procedure of appointment of an arbitrator is generally incorporated in contract after due negotiations between the parties. However, in the case of Public Sector Contracts such as PPP contracts, there is hardly any scope of negotiation or modification as the governmental bodies insist on the execution of pre-drafted agreements. These agreements mostly prescribe the appointment of an arbitrator by the government body, which in turn can lead to a biased proceeding. The Arbitration Act clearly provides that even a partly nominated arbitrator has to be independent and impartial. Therefore, if any party has a justifiable reason to challenge the aspect of independence and impartiality of an arbitrator, then an application under section 13 can be preferred before the arbitrator while listing out reasons for withdrawal. Upon withdrawal, a new arbitrator is appointed to take over. To bring out the merits in an application for withdrawal can come as a challenge and it is the domain of the firm’s best arbitration lawyers in Dehradun who expeditiously work in the matters of challenging the appointment of an arbitrator.

Application to Set-Aside Arbitral Award under section 34:
Section 34 of the act provides that if a party is aggrieved by an arbitral award, within a period of 90 days from the date of the service of such award, it can challenge it. This challenge is essentially done on the grounds given in Section 34 of the Arbitration and Reconciliation Act, 1996. Arbitration has a special recognition in law as a means of dispute resolution, therefore, right to appeal against an award is limited, and it is critical that a petition seeking to set aside the arbitral award encompassed the grounds given in section 34.

An appeal before the Supreme Court of India

At times, the order passed by a High Court in a petition filed under section 9 seeking interim protection or interim injunction, and section 11, seeking to appoint arbitrators, can also be challenged before the Supreme Court of India is there is a substantial question of law involved.
