Institutional arbitration, is one in which a specialized institution in India with prominent

characteristics interlining and assuming the functions of aiding and administering the
arbitral process in India, as provided by the rules of such institution under the statute.
Essentially, the procedures and the working of the arbitral proceedings are indomitable by
the institution designated by the parties. Such institutions may also provide skilled
arbitrators empanelled with the institution. As a result of the structured procedure and
administrative support provided by the institutional arbitration, it provides distinctive
advantages, which are unavailable to parties opting for ad hoc arbitration
The increase in the number of institutional arbitrations howsoever, is minimal in India and
has unfortunately not really kick-started. In this context, the Act is institutional arbitration
agnostic meaning thereby, it neither promoted nor discourages parties to consider
institutional arbitration.
Advantages of institutional arbitration
For those who can afford institutional arbitration, the most important advantages are:

the availability of existing rules and procedures which ensure that the arbitration
proceedings start and end in a timely manner

administrative assistance from the institution to the arbitrations institututes, which

will provide a secretariat or court of arbitration;

a list of qualified and skilled arbitrators to choose from;

assistance in encouraging reluctant parties to proceed with arbitration and solve the
dispute between them; and

an established format with a proven record.

Institutional arbitration saves parties and their lawyers the effort of determining the
arbitration procedure and of drafting an arbitration clause, which is provided by the
institution. Once the parties have selected an institution, they can incorporate that
institution's draft clause into their contract.
They might wish to add different components to the statement in a few circumstances..
These statements can be revised every once in a while by the foundation, attracting on
experience directing discretions consistently, and guarantees there is no uncertainty in
connection to the assertion process.

A foundation's board of referees will for the most part be comprised of specialists from
different areas of the world and incorporate a wide range of livelihoods. This permits
gatherings to choose a mediator having the important aptitude, experience and skill to give
a speedy and compelling debate determination process. It ought to be noted, in any case,
that the gatherings simply assign a judge - it is up to the foundation to make an
arrangement and the establishment is allowed to decline an arrangement in the event that it
considers that the selected authority does not have the vital skill or absence of bias.
A further advantage of institutional discretion is that the gatherings and mediators can look
for help and exhortation from institutional staff. In a less formal specially appointed game
plan, gatherings to the assertion would need to approach the court keeping in mind the end
goal to take the intervention forward and this would unavoidably bring about further
One of the apparent favorable circumstances of intervention by and large is that it gives a
last and tying recompense which can't be advanced. On the other hand, there is an
inalienable danger that a misstep made by a tribunal couldn't be corrected at a later stage.
To offset this hazard, some institutional principles accommodate investigation of the draft
grant before the last recompense is issued. A disappointed gathering could then engage an
arbitral tribunal of second case which would have the capacity to affirm, differ, alter or put
aside the draft recompense. Less formal procedures give no such alternative.

The major steps that can be taken to promote institutional arbitration in India are hereunder
mentioned:1. Popularize institutional arbitration in India by chalking out and promoting its
advantages to the public opting for the arbitration process to solve the dispute
between them and establishing an institution towards that effect which will conform
to international standards.
2. Amending the existing governing laws to favor institutional arbitration in India.
3. Active role of Supreme Court and High Courts to promote institutional arbitration in
India in all types of civil disputes.
4. Providing a Legislative Sanction from the Arbitration Institutes to institutions such as
ICC and SIAC which provide for Emergency Arbitrator by broadening the definition of
Arbitral Tribunal.
5. Support of Government in terms of providing financial aid and arrangement of lands
for building of such institutions.
6. Forming an Arbitral Commission in India which would encourage spreading of
institutional arbitration in India as well as protect the interest of the parties to a
dispute opting for arbitration to solve the dispute between them.
