HC sets aside arbitrator’s  Rs 203 lakh award to construction company

Srinagar, Oct 10: The High Court of J&K and Ladakh on Monday set aside an award of Rs 203 lakhs to a construction company by a sole arbitrator, observing that the same had been passed in “three lines, which is not permissible under law.”

“Every order having implications of grant of decree is to be passed on some material, forming such basis for the interim award,” a bench of Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey  said, adding, “no such material has been discussed by the arbitrator and there is no discussion about the dispute raised by the applicants regarding such claim.”

The court was hearing an application filed by the Chief Engineer, PW(R&B) Department, Srinagar and Executive Engineer, PW(R&B) Department, Division, Budgam  against the award by the sole arbitrator in favour of the Mirsons Constructions Pvt  Ltd.
