Future Retail, on Friday, said it intends to pursue all available avenues to conclude the deal with Reliance Retail to protect the interests of its stakeholders and workforce.

“The Honourable Supreme Court of India has today passed its judgment inter-alia stating that Emergency Arbitrator’s order holds good under section 17(1) of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act (the Act), and such award cannot be appealed under Section 17(2) of the Act. The judgment addresses two limited points related to the enforceability of the Emergency Arbitrator’s order and not the merits of the disputes. The full copy of the judgment is awaited,” said Future Retail in a statement to the stock exchanges.
