The Supreme Court of India’s landmark judgment, Bharat Aluminum v. Kaiser Aluminum (‘BALCO’), passed in September 2013, effectively reversed the trend of Indian courts towards judicial intervention in international arbitrations. Although the crux of that judgment, that provisions Part 1 of the Indian Arbitration Act will not apply too foreign-seated arbitrations, is to be applied prospectively, the decision has already had a positive impact on judicial developments. A review of  recent judgments makes it apparent that courts are now adopting a less interfering role in the international arbitration process and are anxious to enforce arbitration agreements between parties in accordance with the UNCITRAL Model law and the New York Convention.
