Jindal Steel And Power Limited vs M/S. Sap India Pvt. Ltd. on 29 June, 2015

1. This petition under Section 9 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act

has been filed by the petitioner initially seeking a restraint order against the

respondent from terminating the SAP Software End-User License Agreement

dated September 27, 2005 entered into between the parties.

2. This relief was in view of the legal notice issued by the respondent

dated December 30, 2014 threatening termination of the License. I may only

note here that during the pendency of the petition, the respondent has in fact,

terminated the License Agreement dated September 27, 2005, vide order

dated April 30, 2015, which compelled the petitioner to file an application

seeking the stay of the termination order. Suffice to state, this Court had not

stayed the termination of the License Agreement. Even though, the petitioner

has not amended the petition incorporating the challenge to order dated April

30, 2015, as the order dated April 30, 2015 has been placed on record and the

learned Senior Counsel for the respondent has no objection on this Court

proceeding on the premise that the present Petition lay a challenge to order

dated April 30, 2015, this Court has heard the arguments on the termination

order as well.
