F.A.O. No.575 of 2006
On request, appeal is taken up on Board for hearing.
Vide order under challenge, objection of the appellant, filed under Section 34 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (for short, `the Act'), against arbitration award dated 10.7.2002, was dismissed. It is an admitted fact that ample opportunity was given to the appellant by the F.A.O. No.575 of 2006 
arbitrator, to lead evidence, before award was passed. Court below has opined that to assail the award, except filing his own affidavit, no other evidence was brought on record by the appellant. Before the Court below and also before this Court, the appellant has failed to show that the award was passed against the principles of natural justice, that the arbitrator has acted beyond jurisdiction and also that the award passed was contrary to the provisions of any statute or public policy. Court below is justified to say that while deciding objection under Section 34 of the Act, the Court is not supposed to sit as a court of appeal on the decision made by the arbitrator.
In view of the findings given by the Court below in para Nos.11 to 13, no case is made out for interference as no substantial question of law has been raised at the time of arguments.
