Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods preface significant advantages over formal legal proceedings, not least of which is speed and cost effectiveness. They also permit legal and procedural flexibility, and are preferable for preservation of commercial relationships.
Courts in India have long recognised the benefits of ADR and actively encourage parties to resolve or, at the very least, narrow down their disputes that would otherwise be adjudicated before them in whole. In fact, recalcitrance in appointing arbitrators or stymieing arbitral or mediatory efforts usually incur judicial ire and courts frown upon dilatory tactics.
