Welcome to NPAC
Founded by the Palkhivala Foundation, the Nani Palkhivala Arbitration Centre (NPAC) aims to be a world class arbitration facility. We believe strongly in arbitration to ease the burden of the courts and to dispense justice in a speedy, cost-effective, and fair manner. To avail of our rules, any individual or company can insert an arbitration clause as an addendum to pre-existing contracts. This can be done via email or in writing. For model clauses to suit your organisation feel free to get in touch.
We can send you weekly updates of recent arbitration cases and news. Would you be interested? If yes, please send us your email id. We need you to register here.
Based in Chennai, the centre is modelled on the lines of the International Council of Arbitration set up by the International Chamber of commerce, Paris. Incorporated in 2005 as a company under section 25 of the companies Act, NPAC is the only arbitration forum in South India to have been formally recognized by the Madras High Court. Read More
