O R D E R
The respondent in the Claim Petition is the petitioner in the
above petition filed under Section 34 of the Arbitration and
Conciliation Act, 1996,(hereinafter called the Act) challenging the
award passed by the sole arbitrator in A.F.No.93 of 2015 dated
23.10.2017. It is necessary to briefly allude to the facts
preceeding the passing of the award in order to morefully
appreciate the grounds on which the respondent before the
arbitral tribunal seeks to challenge the award dated 23.10.2017.
A preliminary objection has been raised by the Claimant that the

[1/8, 19:19] Sekarreporter: O.P.No.549 of 2019
work the respondent cannot now question the dismissal of their
counter claim. The arbitrator taking note of the delay has
imposed liquidated damages on the claimant which has not been
challenged by them.
Considering the fact that the petition is barred by
limitation and as there is no patent illegality or perversity in the
order passed by the arbitral tribunal this Court exercising
Jurisdiction under Section 34 of the Arbitration and Conciliation
Act, does not find any ground for interference. The Original
Petition stands dismissed. Consequently, connected Application
is also closed. No costs.
