Stamp Duty On Arbitration Agreement In Delhi

“Arbitration is contractual and Garware Wall Ropes is now telling us that such a contract is one and indivisible, at least as part of its arbitration agreement. There is partisan autonomy in what they can decide among themselves, and that must be respected by the Court of Justice. The referee himself is a creature of the contract. Conciliation is not possible without agreement. On April 4, 2019, in the case of Gautam Landscapes Private Ltd. and Ors v. Shailesh S. Shah and Ors, the Bombay High Court had to rule on two issues: (i) whether a document subject to a compromise clause is not stamped or insufficiently stamped; and (ii) In light of Section 11 (6A) of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996, inserted by arbitration and conciliation (Amendment) Act, 2016, it would be necessary for the Court of Justice to await the decision of the audit authorities before reviewing and issuing final orders under section 11, paragraph 6 of the Act, if the contested document is not properly labelled. The Supreme Court of M/S Sms Tea Estates P.Ltd v.M/S Chandmari Tea Co. P.Ltd had the opportunity to consider what would happen if the arbitration agreement was not properly sealed. …. Indeed, such a requirement is found in the regulation/regulation of almost all high courts.

Given that, in this case, the arbitration clause … The action. The court cannot react to such a document or to the compromise clause it contains. But if the deficit obligation and penalty is paid in the way… However, the Supreme Court held that the doctrine of harmonious construction should be interpreted as such that section 11(13) of the act must be read with paragraphs 33 and 34 of the Stamps Act (which provide for the thawing of unstamped instruments).

The Supreme Court has gone even further in defining a mechanism that courts and stamp authorities must follow when the underlying agreement is stamped: while it has decided whether the non-signing of the lease agreement influences the use of the arbitration agreement, the Sms Estate court has ruled otherwise. It found that the arbitration agreement could not be implemented in an unstamped document, since the Stamping Act does not contain an exception similar to that of Section 49 of the Registration Act. This reasoning was followed by Garware. Garware is based primarily on the case of SMS Teas Estates Pvt. Ltd. v., Chandmari Tea Co Pvt. Ltd[2] (“SMS Tea Estates Judgement”), which dealt with the question of whether a compromise clause could be complied with in an unstamped and unregord rental state. The SMS Tea Estates judgment found that the non-registration of the lease agreement did not affect the appeal for an arbitration agreement. The Court stated that a transfer decision containing a compromise clause should be interpreted as two separate contracts wrapped in one, i.e. a registration agreement for the transfer of the property and an “independent” arbitration agreement for the settlement of disputes. Non-registration would only concern the first agreement or the agreement to transfer the property – it had no influence on the dispute settlement agreement.
