Union of India & Ors Vs. M/S. Jamshedpur
Engineering & Machines Manufacturing Co.  INSC 251 (30 April 1993)
M.M. Punchhi, M.M. Jeevan Reddy, B.P. (J)
1994 SCC Supl. (1) 510
Objections raised to the award being made Rule of Court are two in number. The
first is that the Arbitrator should not have awarded a sum of Rs 1,000 as
damages and that the damage to the Union of India is at a much higher figure.
second objection is that the Arbitrator should not have awarded interest at the
rate of 15 per cent from March 1979 to 1990 on the price outstanding and
is obvious, these objections pertain to the merits of the case. These are not entertainable
as objections to the award. Nothing is reflected in the objection petition as
to the conduct of the Arbitrator or to the arbitration proceedings. The 511
objections have thus no merit and accordingly the same are dismissed.
Correspondingly, the award is made Rule of the Court. I.A. No. 2 and C.A. No.
6256 of 1990 are disposed of accordingly.
