HOW TO REFER DISPUTES TO DELHI INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION CENTRE (DAC)

Parties can take advantage of DAC's institutional arbitration by insertion of a Model Arbitration Clause in the contract or by a separate arbitration agreement providing for the reference of an existing dispute to DAC for arbitration. In relation to existing contracts, in which disputes have already arisen, the parties can give their choice of arbitrator and preference to Court and by signing a Joint Memorandum, in any proceedings in any Court, including under Section 89 of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908; or under sections 11, 8 or 9 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996.


Disputes  may  be  referred  to  the  Delhi  International  Arbitration Centre through a procedure administered by the Centre in two ways:

I.   By insertion of a clause in a contract providing for the reference of all disputes in relation  to or arising out of that contract between the parties, or

II. By a separate agreement providing for the reference of an existing dispute to DAC for arbitration in accordance with its rules.
