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.
