2. ARB.P. 501/2021 under Section 11(6) of the Arbitration and
Conciliation Act, 1996 (“1996 Act”), seeks appointment of an
arbitrator to arbitrate on the disputes between the parties. Dr. George,
learned counsel for the petitioner, has invited my attention to a
communication dated 1st April, 2021, by the respondent through
counsel, in response to the notice invoking arbitration, issued by the
petitioner. A reading of this letter indicates that the respondents were
agreeable to the disputes being referred to arbitration, but were not
agreeable to arbitration by the arbitrator suggested by the petitioner.
The respondents, in their reply, therefore, suggested the name of
another arbitrator, with which the petitioner is not in agreement.
