Pre-arbitral steps require parties compliance with notices – Delhi HC

#Delhi High Court has held that pre-arbitral steps lose their relevance when notices are unanswered. The court observed that the petitioner had issued a notice of dispute to the respondent, but the respondent did not reply to such notice, instead, it chose to file a suit before the Gurgaon District Court.

The Court held that the respondent cannot insist on fulfilling pre-arbitral steps after it has not replied to the notice of dispute.

Accordingly, the Court dismissed the objection and appointed an arbitrator in the case of Akhil Gupta v. Hindustan #Unilever Ltd, ARB.P, 460 of 2024.
