In Anugraha Engineers & Contractors v. Union of India, 2014 (3) CTC 116: 2014 (1) LW 132, a Single Judge of the Hon'ble High Court of Madras has decided that a Court under Section 34 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (hereinafter "1996 Act" or "Act") cannot assume the power of an Appellate Court and partially set aside or modify an Arbitral Award. This short paper critically analyses the said decision and argues that the Court has the power to modify or partially set aside an Award.
