The construction industry is considered to be one of the most dispute-prone industries in the world. Disputes of any kind need to be solved through alternate dispute resolution methods to avoid delay in the completion of the projects and thereby reduce financial losses. Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution mechanism that has been in use since ancient times worldwide.  In India, various laws related to arbitration were formulated prior to British rule and also post-independence. In this paper, an attempt has been made to compare the different Arbitration Acts existing in India to study their effectiveness in dispute resolution.
