Maintainability of Arbitration


X is owner of a vehicle financed by a private finance co. Two nos of EMIs were wrongly credited to someone else's account instead of X's account.

Thereafter X defaulted in three EMIs. The finance company started Arbitration basing on the wrong account of 5 defaulted EMIs instead of 3 EMIs.

Now X filed complaint before Consumer Forum for wrong credit of his EMIs

Whether the arbitration proceeding is maintainable which is based on wrong defaulted amount?

It is not clear in your question whether there is an arbitraion agreement between the parties. you need clearification in your question.



Hi Prabodh,

Yes as Mr.Pandey told you, there is no clarity on your question and moreover...... X nothing can do? he is wrong doer.... he made default on repayment na....? wrongly credited or debited to someone's account is irrelevant to X, it is the matter between that the party affected and Financial company... ok ........ the issue is X having the responsibility of repaying the loan amount for that extent the financial company having the right to go for arbitration if the arbitration clause is there in the agreement between X and financial company........... no question of 5 emi or 3 emi...... right?

Going by your query, I think  this matter has arisen out of a Hire Purchase Agreement.  It is better to go through each clause of the Hire Purchase Agreement if there is one and then start taking a stand on the maintainability of Arbitration proceedings started by the Finance Company. If any clause of the Hire Purchase Agreement speaks about settlement of disputes between the parties through arbitration, then I think the arbitration proceedings initiated by the Company is maintainable.
