    New Delhi, 31st August 2019: West Haryana Highways Projects Private Limited (a Special Purpose Vehicle of Era Infra Engineering) was awarded a Concession Agreement by NHAI on DBFOT Toll basis for widening of existing two lane highway and also constructions of two new bypasses. Although WHHPPL substantially completed the work and Toll was stared in 2014, NHAI was not declaring the completion.

  • GSTing till 2019 and ahead!!

    With the implementation of GST two years back, India has seen one of the biggest tax reforms for the growth and revival of its economy. Post the journey of peaks & troughs, the GST regime is finally settling in to the needs of business cycle. The Government, with the theme of promoting ‘ Ease of Doing Business ’, is trying hard to make this reform simpler, business friendly and transparent in its functioning. Such measures can also be seen during this year’s budget speech of our Hon’ble Finance Minister, wherein announcements were made towards the simplification of GST.

    The Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (Act) provides the framework for arbitration and conciliation in India. Drafted on the basis of the UNCITRAL Model Law, it is divided into four parts. Each part governs a different aspect of the arbitration and conciliation process: a Part 1 governs commercial arbitration; b Part 2 governs the enforcement of certain foreign awards; c Part 3 governs conciliation; and d Part 4 contains supplementary provisions (regarding the power of the court to make rulings, etc.). The Act 2 was recently amended in 2016 with an aim to make it more robust by plugging the lacunae that existed in the original legislation.
