A Brief of the Study
Indian dispute resolution arena is witnessing significant developments with the Central Government’s steadfast commitment to discouraging litigation and encouraging companies to take up alternate dispute resolution systems. In this context, CPPR with the support of the British Deputy High Commission, Chennai, took up the initiative to assess the dispute resolution scenario in India with specific focus on the three southern states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The initiative aims to assist the governments and industries in developing right strategies for promoting dispute resolution practices in India. As a leading policy think-tank, CPPR aims to shape policies in this area to develop India as a major destination for investments and dispute resolution. Further, as a long-term commitment to strengthening dispute resolution, CPPR trained more than 50 professionals in commercial dispute resolution.
We believe this report will be the reference point for future discourses on commercial dispute resolution. We acknowledge the support of the Ministries of Commerce and Industry, State Governments of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, ADR centres, chamber bodies and ADR practitioners in successfully completing the project.
