In the circular, it was stipulated that the arbitral tribunal shall make the arbitral award within 3 months from the date of entering upon the reference. It was also stipulated that the time taken to make the award may not be extended beyond three times, by the Managing director or the relevant authority on an application by either of the parties or the arbitral tribunal. In this regard, it is clarified that notwithstanding the extensions granted, the arbitration award should be passed within a period of six months from the date of entering into reference i.e. extension of time of award can be for a maximum period of three months.

The bye-law as advised vide circular No. SMD/Policy/Cir-18/2002 dated August 28, 2002, may now be read as follows :
