Whether amended S 36 of arbitration Act will be applicable to application U/S 34 on date of commencement of amendment Act?

 
In Narhari Shivram Shet Narvekar v. Pannalal
Umediram (1976) 3 SCC 203 at 207, this Court, following
Lalji Raja (supra), held as follows:
73“8. Learned counsel appearing for the
appellant however submitted that since the
Code of Civil Procedure was not applicable to
Goa the decree became inexecutable and this
being a vested right could not be taken away
by the application of the Code of Civil
Procedure to Goa during the pendency of the
appeal before the Additional Judicial
Commissioner. It seems to us that the right of
the judgment debtor to pay up the decree
passed against him cannot be said to be a
vested right, nor can the question of
executability of the decree be regarded as a
substantive vested right of the judgment
debtor. A fortiori the execution proceedings
being purely a matter of procedure it is well
settled that any change in law which is made
during the pendency of the cause would be
deemed to be retroactive in operation and the
appellate court is bound to take notice of the
change in law.”
Since it is clear that execution of a decree pertains to the
realm of procedure, and that there is no substantive
vested right in a judgment debtor to resist execution,
Section 36, as substituted, would apply even to pending
Section 34 applications on the date of commencement of
the Amendment Act.
