Changing landscape of arbitration in India has witnessed laudable efforts by Government of India including amendments to the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 by Amendment Act of 2015, passage of the Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Bill, 2018, amongst others. Parliament and Judiciary are taking pro-active steps to support the cause of dispute resolution through arbitration. Though the impact from these efforts has been significant, there is always room for further improvement. Further, certain issues and concerns needs to be ironed out.
