otherwise in the Agreement all disputes shall be settled
in accordance with the said GAIL (India) Ltd Conciliation
Rules 2010.

  1. Since the dispute between the respective petitioners and the the
    2
    nd/3
    rd
    respondents are purely a commercial dispute which can be resolved in
    an arbitration proceeding in terms of the arbitration clause, I am of the view
    that these present writ petitions are liable to be dismissed as the petitioners
    have an alternate remedy which is more efficacious. The respective
    petitioners should therefore invoke the arbitration clause as per the respective
    agreement and proceed to resolve the dispute with the 2
    nd
    respondent.
  2. Therefore, these writ petitions are liable to be dismissed. Since
    the petitioners had obtained an interim relief which was in operation all along
    during the pendency of these writ petitions, same shall continue for a period
    of another 6 months from the date of receipt of copy of this order.
  3. Petitioner may file appropriate application under Section 179 of
    the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 to continue the same under the
    provisions of the aforesaid Act if desired. These writ petitions thus stand
