7. If the mediator finds that it is not feasible or appropriate to continue mediation, the mediator may terminate the proceedings after communicating his unilateral decision to the parties. 10. If an agreement is reached, the parties or their lawyer will prepare a transaction document or a settlement report and possible authorizations. 5. Planned Mediation Meeting: The contracting parties meet for mediation on 2010, starting with __a.m in the offices of the ` While under Section 30, conciliation and conciliation agreements may be covered in the form of an arbitration award on agreed terms and therefore treated equally, the application of settlement agreements concluded under private mediation is recognized by law under Part III of the Act. This creates many problems for the parties in the event of a party`s failure – (1) the transaction agreement would not be applicable as a court agreement, in the best case it can form the basis of a civil action; (2) It responds to a dispute – although the matter is resolved. With respect to annulment, the courts have generally not recognized that, although legal fiction treats transaction agreements as an arbitration award, there is nothing that compels the court to treat conciliation/mediation as conciliation or arbitrator/mediator. For example, hon`ble Delhi High Court in Surinder Kumar Beri v. Deepak Beri – Anr.
2018 (171) DRJ 414, cancelled a transaction agreement under Section 34 of the Act on the grounds that it was contrary to India`s public policy. A similar application of the law was upheld by the UK Supreme Court in Hayward against the UKSC 48 of Zurich Insurance Company .

Appointment and Objectives: With this agreement, the parties designate Tad Powers/Michael Marks as mediator for their negotiations. The parties are aware that the objective of the mediator is to help the parties reach a fair and constructive agreement that resolves their differences in a collaborative, consensual and informed manner. The Mediator is neutral in this quarrel. The mediator himself does not comment on the contentious issues.
The mediator is impartial throughout the mediation process. Given that the Indian regime distinguishes between mediation and conciliation, it is inevitable that the law will equate the two in terms of uniformity of application and recognition. Mediation will only function as a viable REL process if it is on an equal footing with conciliation and arbitration. Finally, when drafting a mediation law, Parliament must also ensure that it limits the scope of the challenge to transaction agreements. Or even if they are treated as arbitration awards, they are rendered unusable. (d) Any party who calls the Ombudsman as a witness, issues a summons to appear against the Ombudsman or requests the production of the Ombudsman renounces his right to rely on and enforce the confidentiality provisions of that agreement, contrary to the Mediator. Section 30 is only in effect if the parties have chosen to settle a dispute after arbitration proceedings have been opened. If the parties have opted for private mediation, under a conciliation clause or otherwise, the transaction agreements will not be treated as arbitration awards. They are therefore imposed as mere contracts between the parties.
The differences between mediation and mediation have been the subject of much discussion.
