Appeal under Arbitration Act

This query is : Resolved 

02 December 2008

Section 37 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act deals with Appeals.... "appeal shall lie from the following orders (and from no others) to the "court authorised by law" to hear appeals. "court" has been defined under section 2 as follows - 'court' means the principal civil court of original jurisdiction in a district, and includes the High Court in exercise of its ordinary original civil jurisdiction....does it mean that appeals can lie even in district courts or one has to necessarily approach the high court?

Appeal under Section 37 of Arbitration and Conciliation Act lie before the High Court.
Section 9 application lie before District Judge which is appealable u/s 37
Section 34 also lies before District Judge which is appealable u/s 37
against these orders appeal lie before High Court (against the order of District Judge)

This is as per my practical knowledge.
We are following this procedure.
