The parties have to abide by the provisions of the LCA 2010, rules of arbitration centre if the Arbitration is an institutional arbitration and also any directions or decisions of the arbitral tribunal and competent court. Carrying out voluntary arbitral awards is encouraged by the arbitral tribunal by the State.

Is the arbitration agreement valid even though the main contract is void?

An arbitration agreement exists independently of the contract made. Any extension, rescission of the contract or modification, unenforceability or invalidity of the contract would not affect the invalidity of the arbitration clause in the contract.

How many arbitrators can be appointed to an arbitration tribunal?

The parties mutually decide the number of arbitrators and the procedures for the appointment of the arbitrators.

In case of a failure to appoint an arbitrator, an arbitrator can be appointed by the president of the arbitration centre or any Court that has the jurisdiction.
