ABOUT ICA

Costly, time-consuming business disputes can take a real bite out of your company’s bottom line. That is why more and more companies are turning to the Indian Council of Arbitration (ICA), the undisputed leader in dispute resolution services in India.

The ICA was established in 1965 as a specialized arbitral body at the national level under the initiatives of the Govt. of India and apex business organizations like FICCI etc. Based in New Delhi, the main objective of ICA is to promote amicable, quick and inexpensive settlement of commercial disputes by means of arbitration, conciliation, regardless of location. more...

Disputes of various forms put on hold big construction projects. This disruption causes worse damage in terms of original cost and profit calculation. The “Dispute Board” mechanism is an effective answer to this problem as it continuously monitors, discusses and settles all upcoming agreements between the parties during the continuation of project. Although the concept and mechanism of DB has been in operation close to four decades across the world, in India, the concept of DB and its acceptance for no hold-up project is still in a very nascent stage – particularly, the institutional dispute board service has no precedent here.  

To ensure a high standard of application of “Dispute Boards”, ICA, with the support of the World Bank, has established the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Institutional Dispute Board Services in India. These Rules of Procedures have been drafted by experienced and high-ranking experts based on best practices from other countries.
