The Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs established by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, is a think tank which supports the initiatives of the Ministry on all matters relating to Corporate Affairs. Anticipating corporate needs for effective functioning, reviewing corporate laws for effective amendments to cater to evolving business environments, exploring new paradigms such as investor education, and periodic reviews and updating definitions, components and activities related to corporate governance are other prominent initiatives of the institute.
Establishing a dedicated Mediation Centre for handling commercial disputes is one such initiative which IICA has taken up towards contributing in fulfilment of legislative mandate enshrined under section 442 of the Companies Act 2013, Section 89 of Code of Civil Procedure, Bankruptcy Code, other laws prescribing mediation and Supreme Court precedents on the subject. This will be a leap in increasing foreign investments in India, ease of doing business, supporting Startup India, Standup India, ensuring effective and faster grievance redressal, lesser burdening of Courts under the aegis of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. I wish the course participants a great experiential learning.

The Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs (IICA) under the aegis of Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, continuously strives to establish excellence in the field of Corporate Affairs. Ease of ‘dispute resolution’ is a significant indicator of ‘ease of doing business’ in any country. Mediation as a mode of commercial dispute resolution is still unexplored in India. What contributes most to this is ignorance about the benefits of mediation in solving commercial disputes. Businesses want flexibility, confidentiality, quickness in resolution of commercial disputes. Mediation can be a great option. Government has recognized this under the new Companies Act, 2013 and has provided for maintenance of a Mediation and Conciliation Panel. This Course on Civil and Commercial Mediation with Negotiation would help the concerned stakeholders to gain expertise and resolve commercial dispute through mediation. I would like to welcome you on board for experiential learning through practical sessions of the course.

“We have been hearing many voices inside and outside the courts, tribunals, administrative and judicial authorities. Have we achieved a feat or have just crawled a little? Have we excelled or just developed a sorry state of affairs? Has justice been received or just delayed and denied? It is the time we hear ourselves, make our own decisions. Come and learn with us the art of self-determination: Negotiation & Mediation.”
Kritika Krishnamurthy, Course Consultant
“If you want something done exactly as per your needs and ideology, do it yourself. There is no one else who can do it better than you. Same goes for your disputes and deals. If you want the best deal, no one can negotiate it better for you than yourself. If you want to solve the dispute before it becomes a roadblock in your commercial endeavour, resolve it yourself through mediation.”
