New Delhi - Seeking to improve India's ranking on ease of doing business index, the government is mulling an ordinance which provides for time-bound settlement of commercial disputes and make arbitrators accountable, a senior government functionary has said.
The government plans to bring the ordinance based on a bill cleared by Lok Sabha during the monsoon session.
As it is pending in Rajya Sabha and may get cleared in November or December during the winter session, the government has planned the ordinance as it feels that an early measure to settle commercial disputes at a faster pace will help improve India’s ranking on ease of doing business index, the functionary explained.
The bill seeks to help India become a hub for domestic and global arbitration for settling commercial disputes.
The draft law provides for a time-bound settlement of disputes as well as accountability of the arbitrator.
The government feels that there is a need for robust mechanism to deal with institutional disputes.
