The petitioners, who are the plaintiffs in Special Civil Suit No.4/2016/A on the file of the learned Senior Civil Judge at Vasco, are challenging the order dated 12/08/2016, by which, application (Exh.9-D) under Section 8 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (the Act, for short), filed by the respondent/ defendant, has been allowed and consequently, the suit has been dismissed.
