Within Sukanya Holdings (a.a.a.), disputes had broken out between several parties in the same transaction. However, not all of these parties were parties to the agreement containing the arbitration clause and the Supreme Court stated that non-signatories could not be referred to a single arbitration procedure under section 8 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act 19965 (hereinafter the Act). In addition, it was decided that the means of arbitration proceedings could not be divided and that, therefore, arbitration proceedings could be limited only to the parties to the arbitration agreement. Therefore, any person who was not a party to the arbitration agreement could not be arbitrated.

Arbitration is an amicable procedure and the arbitration agreement waives a party`s right to avail itself of the jurisdiction of other competent courts in favor of arbitration proceedings. . .
