(Ps&A) DEALS WITH THE FOLLOWING PROVISIONS OF Arbitraion and Conciliation Act, 1996:


Arbitration and Conciliation Act, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts. The parties to a dispute refer it to arbitration by one or more persons (the "arbitrators", "arbiters" or "arbitral tribunal"), and agree to be bound by the arbitration decision (the "award"). A third party reviews the evidence in the case and imposes a decision that is legally binding on both sides and enforceable in the courts.
