    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. Also WHHPPL suffered huge losses due to Project overrun including threat from Banks/Financial Institution w.r.t Insolvency Proceedings (needless to reiterate one such proceedings under I&B Code filed by Bank of Baroda (erstwhile Dena bank) was recently rejected by Principal Bench, New Delhi).

  • International Arbitration Review - India

    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.
