Section 34(4) of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 – A Fly in the Ointment? (Part II)
In this post, we analyse some of the questions and ambiguities that may arise in the applicability of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act. Section 34 2 of the Arbitration Act provides two sets of grounds on which an award may be set aside. Section 34 2 a sets out grounds of challenge such as incapacity of a party, invalidity of the arbitration agreement, lack of proper notice of appointment of the arbitrator or of the arbitral proceedings or inability of a party to present his case, an award which deals with disputes not submitted to arbitration, improper composition of the arbitral tribunal or arbitral procedure contrary to the agreement between the parties, etc.
These grounds must be established by the party challenging the award, on the basis of the record of the arbitral tribunal. Section 34 2 b of the Arbitration Act provides that an award may be set aside if the court finds that the subject-matter of the dispute is not capable of settlement by arbitration or if the award is in conflict with the public policy of India. The grounds under Section 34 2 b of the Arbitration Act are substantive and go to the root of the award.
If an award deals with a dispute which cannot be settled by arbitration, then this is logically not a ground that is capable of elimination and the court must set aside the award in such a case, notwithstanding an application under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act. The ground of conflict with public policy is also not capable of elimination by the arbitral tribunal, inter alia given that it may not only be wasteful, but possibly prejudicial, to send parties back to an arbitral tribunal which has passed an award in conflict with public policy.
Even if sending back an award which is in conflict with public policy were neither wasteful nor prejudicial, the intention of the Parliament could never have been to give an arbitral tribunal a second bite at the cherry by reviewing and rewriting the award on merits. Crompton Greaves Ltd. Dyna supra draws a clear distinction between defects in an award which are curable, and those which are not, for the purpose of Section 34 of the Arbitration Act.
The court may give an opportunity to the arbitral tribunal to eliminate the former under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act. However, as far as the latter goes, the award must be set aside by the court. The following are some situations in which courts have found it fit to exercise their powers under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act.
We may attempt to further ascertain the scope of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act, by the process of elimination. An arbitral tribunal does not have the power to review its own award. Further, Section 33 of the Arbitration Act provides a specific procedure for correction of computational, clerical, or typographical errors in the award by the arbitral tribunal and requires parties to apply for correction of such error within 30 days from the receipt of the award.
This ought to rule out correction of such errors by the arbitral tribunal by resuming arbitral proceedings under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act. As pointed out above, there are only certain classes of grounds which are capable of cure or elimination by an arbitral tribunal. It would, therefore, logically follow that the court must identify the grounds of challenge, which have been made out in an application under Section 34 1 of the Arbitration Act, and resort to Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act only if such grounds are capable of elimination by the arbitral tribunal.
The absence of such protocol may lead to several issues, including the fact that the arbitral tribunal may wind up re-writing the award, which is impermissible, and may be gravely prejudicial to a party challenging the award.
Further, one could argue that Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act should be resorted to only where it would eliminate all curable grounds of challenge, which have been identified by the court. For instance, take a situation where the court finds that the award is liable to be set aside because the arbitral tribunal overlooked a particular claim a curable ground , but also finds that the basic reasoning in the award is contrary to the fundamental policy of Indian law.
Resorting to Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act in this situation, may be completely inappropriate, as even if the arbitral tribunal cures the curable ground and considers the overlooked claim, the court would still be required to set aside the award on the ground of it being contrary to the fundamental policy of Indian law.
Whilst some amount of clarity on the scope of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act can be pieced together from various precedents, there is still room for inconsistent application of this provision by various courts including District Courts. If the court does not identify the curable defects before resorting to Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act, any action taken by the arbitral tribunal to eliminate grounds for setting aside of the award could open up the possibility of further challenge by the party aggrieved by such action.
This could cause inordinate delay in the enforcement of arbitral awards and would militate against the efficacy of the arbitral process. Therefore, a comprehensive exposition of the actual scope of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act is sorely needed.
Bombay Mercantile Co-op Bank Ltd. Damani Construction Co. Unintelligible awards are to be set aside, subject to party autonomy to do away with reasoned awards.
The legislative intention of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act was to make the award enforceable, after giving an opportunity to the arbitral tribunal to undo curable defects.
In case of absence of reasoning, the utility under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act has been provided to cure such defects. When there is complete perversity in reasoning, then only it can be challenged under Section 34 of the Arbitration Act. The power vested under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act to cure defects can be utilised in cases where the award does not provide any reasoning or if the award has some gap in reasoning or otherwise, and that can be cured so as to avoid a challenge based on the aforesaid curable defects under Section 34 of the Arbitration Act.
What grounds of challenge are capable of elimination by the arbitral tribunal? A Division Bench of the Bombay High Court observed that the power under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act could be exercised where the arbitral tribunal overlooked a particular claim on which the parties led evidence and addressed arguments.
Vicnivass Agency ,  as we saw in Part I of this post, was a case where the Madras High Court exercised its jurisdiction under Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act, where a party was denied the opportunity to present its case i. Dyna supra classified a lack of reasoning or a gap in reasoning as a curable defect as opposed to perversity in reasoning, which cannot be cured and would necessitate the setting aside of the award. Concluding remarks We may attempt to further ascertain the scope of Section 34 4 of the Arbitration Act, by the process of elimination.

Girdhar Sondhi, 1 that unless absolutely necessary, the courts should not go beyond the record before the arbitrator in deciding an application for setting aside an award. Under the Agreement, exclusive jurisdiction was granted to the courts in Mumbai. Similarly, under the NSE bye-laws, exclusive jurisdiction was also granted to the courts of Mumbai. The bye-laws further prescribed seats of arbitration for different regions, geographical locations for conducting arbitrations etc. The District Court dismissed the application under Section 34 2 on the ground that it would not have the jurisdiction in light of the exclusive jurisdiction clause. However, on appeal, the Delhi High Court held that the issue of jurisdiction in the present case was a question of fact and parties were not allowed to lead evidence on it.
The Supreme Court concluded that a court can relegate the parties to the arbitral tribunal, only if there is a specific written application from one party to this effect; and relegation has to happen before the arbitral award passed by the same arbitral tribunal is set aside by the court.

Do I believe in arbitration? But not in arbitration between the lion and the lamb, in which in the morning the lamb is found inside the lion. Besides all the advantages and amenities available to refer the disputes to arbitration, it is one of the cornerstone drawbacks of the arbitration process that the award passed by the arbitrator is final and binding between the parties and the parties are not entitled to appeal against the award.

Это касалось и права людей хранить личные секреты, а ведь АНБ следит за всеми и каждым. Уничтожение банка данных АНБ - акт агрессии, на которую, была уверена Сьюзан, Танкадо никогда бы не пошел. Вой сирены вернул ее к действительности.
Он даже предупредил АНБ, подбросив ключ, что NDAKOTA - он. Это имя так просто превращается в Танкадо. И лучшие в мире специалисты-криптографы этого не поняли, прошли мимо, на что он и рассчитывал. - Танкадо посмеялся над нами, - сказал Стратмор. - Вы должны отключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ, - напомнила Сьюзан.
ГЛАВА 77 Стратмор остановился на площадке у своего кабинета, держа перед собой пистолет. Сьюзан шла следом за ним, размышляя, по-прежнему ли Хейл прячется в Третьем узле. Свет от монитора Стратмора отбрасывал на них жутковатую тень. Сьюзан старалась держаться поближе к шефу на небольшой платформе с металлическими поручнями. По мере того как они удалялись от двери, свет становился все более тусклым, и вскоре они оказались в полной темноте. Единственным освещением в шифровалке был разве что свет звезд над их головами, едва уловимое свечение проникало также сквозь разбитую стеклянную стену Третьего узла. Стратмор шагнул вперед, нащупывая ногой место, где начинались ступеньки узенькой лестницы.
Через каждые несколько шагов Стратмор останавливался, держа пистолет наготове, и прислушивался. Единственным звуком, достигавшим его ушей, был едва уловимый гул, шедший снизу. Сьюзан хотелось потянуть шефа назад, в безопасность его кабинета. В кромешной тьме вокруг ей виделись чьи-то лица. На полпути к ТРАНСТЕКСТУ тишина шифровалки нарушилась.
Я понимаю. - Беккер запнулся. - Но тут… тут слишком. Мне нужны только деньги на такси. - Он прикинул в уме, сколько в этой пачке в пересчете на доллары.
Лестница, ведущая наверх, была пуста. Его жертва не приготовилась к отпору. Хотя, быть может, подумал Халохот, Беккер не видел, как он вошел в башню. Это означало, что на его, Халохота, стороне фактор внезапности, хотя вряд ли он в этом так уж нуждается, у него и так все козыри на руках.
