(2.) On completion of pleadings, the parties agreed that the following two issues be tried as preliminary issues: "(e) Whether the amended claim is barred by law of limitation" (f) Whether the amended claim falls outside the scope of reference by Order dated 27th February 2006""
(3.) The learned arbitrator came to the conclusion that a part of the claim was barred by limitation but the remaining part was within time.
