In this newsletter we analyse a recent development in a matter in which the High Court of Delhi refused to stand by practices that weaponises delays to draw out adjudication.
This decision sounds a warning bell to parties, clearly indicating that courts will come down heavily on delays that are attributable to the parties and particularly those that are actively exacerbated by their conduct. In doing so, the Court has not only relied on existing precedent that supports its position but has also drawn from legislative trends that infuse swiftness in the arbitration process.
