The former Law on the point did not require the Arbitrators to give any reasons for their award unless of course the Arbitration agreement itself required reasons to be given by the Arbitrator.

With the coming into force of the 1996 Act an Arbitrator has to give the reasons in the award for his decision unless the parties have agreed that no reasons are to be given or the award is an award on agreed terms under Section 30.

The award shall state its date and the place of Arbitration as determined in accordance with Section 20 of the 1996 Act and the award shall be deemed to have been made at that place. [Section 31(3) and(4)].
