18:30 – 19:40 Panel Discussion: Practitioners and AIAC’s views on Arbitration in India: present and future

[The panel will discuss very objectively the actual impact of Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Amendment Act 2019. Most importantly, how at this stage AIAC has an advantage concerning the expectations of the Indian arbitration stakeholders. The Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1996 has been amended by Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Act, 2019. Part 1A has introduced the concept of an Arbitration Council of India (‘Council’), which will be established by a notification by the Central. The Council will, inter alia, promote and encourage arbitration, mediation, conciliation or other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. It would be interesting to see how this would change the Arbitration Scenario in India which is known for dominance of Ad-hoc Arbitrations as compared to Institutional Arbitrations. It would also be interesting to discuss the best practices followed by Arbitral Institutions in other parts of Asia and how they can contribute to Indian dispute resolution practice.]
