Ease Of Doing Business: Executive Order To Allow Speedy Disposal Of Commercial Disputes Comes Into Force

Sunday, 14th May 2018

"New Delhi: An executive order aimed at amending a law to allow speedy disposal of commercial disputes came into force today. The government says the move will help improve India's ranking in the ease of doing business index. According to the executive order issued today, the specified value of a commercial dispute will be brought down to Rs. 3 lakh from the present Rs. 1 crore. The executive order amends the Commercial Courts, Commercial Division and Commercial Appellate Division of High Courts Act. The ordinance will replace the bill. It would bring down the time taken from the present 1,445 days for resolution of commercial disputes of lesser value.

Ease of doing business is an index of the World Bank which refers to the dispute resolution environment in a country that facilitates an investor in deciding to set up and operate a business.
