Application For Interim Relief Under Section 17

Section 17 of the arbitration and conciliation Act has been replaced with a new section that gives more teeth to interim measures by arbitral tribunals. Under the old section, the tribunal could pass interim measures but such measures could not be implemented, as they were not treated at par with an order of court. The new section lays down that any order passed by the arbitral tribunal under section 17 will be deemed to be an order of the court for all purposes and be enforceable under CPC as if it were a on order of the court

Under section 17, the arbitral tribunal has the power to order interim measures of protection, unless the parties have excluded such power by agreement. But section 17 of the principal Act lacked effectiveness due to the absence of statutory mechanism for the enforcement of interim orders of the arbitral tribunal.
