What is the legal validity of Mediation in India?   

November 1, 2020by ra123456

Formalization of the mediation method in the Indian context took place with the introduction of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1996. This is considered a watershed moment in this field as it introduced the basic framework within which formal mediation could be conducted within the country. Outcomes/ Agreements arrived at during the mediation process in consonance with the provisions of Article 73 of the Act have a legal validity akin to an Arbitral award.

I have worked with the Seek Mediation team for quite a while. They have always far exceeded my expectations. Simply put, they are a world class outfit.


We just cannot believe it.  Our family dispute had been lingering for the last one decade. Got resolved in four sessions!

I have worked with mediation consultants before, but I have never seen a group which is so dedicated and committed to their cause. Very professional indeed.


I never knew disputes could be resolved so easily and economically. At the end of the day, it was win-win for all of us.

Are you ready to try Mediation?
