USA Judgment execution in India


 

Hello Experts,

My company is based in NJ, USA and entered into a contract here with an Indian company with a branch office in the USA. The contract was not honored by the Indian company branch and so I won a Judgment against them.

However, before I start collecting on the Judgment, the Indian company closed business in the USA. Since it is a publicly traded company in India, it has assets in India and i'm looking to collect my judgment in India.

My questions:

1> Can the US Judgment be enforced in India? I read something about a non-reciprocity clause.

2> If the non-reciprocity clause applies, do I need to file a fresh lawsuit again?

3> If I have to initiate a new lawsuit in India, how long does it take usually and how much it would cost?It would help if you can detail the process.

4> How can I use the US Judgment to expedite the indian lawsuit?

Your expertise and advise is very much appreciated. Many Thanks!!

Thank you Mr. Pervez. and Mr. Nandakumar.

After reading through, I think i will have to file a suit on the judgment since USA is a non-reciprocity country.

But I want to confirm if the indian courts have jurisdiction over this and how long would such a process usually takes? Also, how much does it cost to file such a suit such as court fees/process fess etc.,

Approximate numbers in percentages will be fine too.
