The court also viewed that the petitioner (DAMEPL)counsel is submitting to the court to settle the dispute between the parties using some other method that didn't involve the court. The court also observed that DAMEPL was not fair to the court despite having won the arbitral award. The judge noted that according to its December 22, 2021 order, DMRC has filed an affidavit furnishing the details of its bank accounts with the balance amount.
