Can a arbitration award be declared as void or null in a Writ Petition ?
My case is as follows:
Everything about arbitration award is ex-parte..No arbitration act 1996 is followed.. No notice is sent of arbitration proceedings and award copy is sent to fake addresses. (All proofs with us)
“Fraud vitiates and nullifies every solemn act and any decree/judgment/order procured by fraud is void and non-est.”
Hence even the arbitration award is void and non-est, and is equally against the principles of natural justice.
When something doesn’t exist legally, why should I set it aside as per Section 34 of Act 1996…
Can I not use a Writ Petition to say that “I need a declaration that the award be adjudged void and unenforceable”
