DDMAP will support the Indian Arbitration Act 1996 as amended upto date and resolutions will be as per applicable law in India. The seat of arbitration will be deemed to be India and will use the online platform of www.odrglobal.in
The Platform would be used by experts in Data Protection Law as both Arbitrators and Counsels.
