Absence of precise amount of claim for loss of goodwill does not render an Arbitral Award as patently illegal: DHC

The Delhi High Court, while dealing with an appeal for setting aside of the Arbitral Award on the ground that the Arbitrator has erred in granting claim of loss of goodwill, without any proof of loss or damage thereof, has held that, it is difficult to establish, with mathematical precision, the quantum of loss of goodwill & in such situations, claim based on liquidated damages as set out in the contract, if accepted, does not make the Arbitral Award patently illegal.
