In a previous post, we had brought the attention of our readers to the Cabinet's approval of an ordinance to amend the Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996. However, the Business Standard reports that the Government has planned not to send the Ordinance for the President's signature. Instead the amendments are likely to be introduced as an Amendment Bill in the budget session of the Parliament. The news report can be accessed from here.
"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well." -Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.
