Read the article ‘Realm of Public Policy and Enforcement of Domestic Arbitral Award’ authored by Abhinav Agnihotri, Associate Partner and Kumar Karan, Associate published on Latest Laws.

"The ground of public policy for setting aside of an award seems well settled in terms of the 2015 Amendment to the 1996 Act and the judgement of the Supreme Court in Venture Global Engineering and Ssangyong Engineering. The very nature of adopting an alternate means of dispute resolution is to minimise the interference of the Courts and provide more autonomy to the parties. The jurisprudence in the Indian scenario has come far and now it appears to be in consonance with the spirit to promote the alternate means of dispute settlement."

Read the expert opinion of our Partner and Head - China Desk, Santosh Pai published on Outlook India in its story "India-Taiwan Business Cannot Be Built On An Anti-China Platform".

"Investments have to be preceded by growing trade volumes. Chinese investments into India came in only after bilateral trade volumes rose dramatically. There is more to developing business ties with Taiwan than wishful thinking about cutting China down to size."

Read the article "Lack of Restitution Clause in Solar PPAs Must Not Lead to Rejection of Carrying Costs Claims" authored by our Regulatory Associate Partner, Aditya K Singh published on Mercom India.

"Electricity Commissions should not blindly rely on the Supreme Court judgment but exercise their regulatory power, read with other dictums of the Supreme Court. However, this does not mean that the Electricity Commissions should allow carrying costs in all cases, but they should exercise their power to allow it on a case-to-case basis. They should also take into consideration the conduct of the parties so that procurers/DISCOMS should not be burdened for the negligence of the generators."
