High Court of Bombay

Armada (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. v. Ashapura Minechem Ltd.




Execution of arbitration of arbitral award impermissible without permission of BIFR

Mere violation of Indian law is not sufficient to raise an objection for enforcement of the foreign award under Section 48 of the Arbitration Act, 1996. In a case where Petitioner sought execution of awards made by a foreign arbitrator, the Court held that though the awards were decreed, the Petitioner could not go ahead the same without permission from the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction, in violation of Section 22 of the Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act, 1985.
