Delhi HC Holds Clause Contained in Main Agreement to Be Given Primacy in case of Interconnected Agreements

In Amit Guglani v. L&T Housing Finance,[1] the Delhi HC held that when disputes arise under two connected and otherwise inseparable agreements with different arbitration clauses and seats of arbitration, the dispute should be resolved under the main or umbrella agreement and the arbitration clause contained therein should be given primacy over the arbitration clause contained in the connected agreement.
