The Delhi high court last week declared that the award of the sole arbitrator appointed by the International Court of Arbitration in the dispute between Fittydent International GmBH and Brawn Laboratories was enforceable in India. The award was in favour of the foreign firm, which had a licence agreement with the Indian firm for manufacture and sale of denture products. Fittydent terminated the contract alleging that the Indian firm failed to start production. The latter stated that it had not received the government approval and therefore it was not at fault. The dispute was decided by the international arbitrator in favour of Fittydent. The award was challenged in the high court, which was rejected and the Indian firm was asked to pay the awarded amount within 12 weeks.
