The company contended that the Ministry of Defence cannot unilaterally freeze payments in the Rs 3,600 crore deal. India has already paid 30 per cent of the amount. Initially, the government had refused to be drawn into the arbitration process but later decided to take part in it in January 2014.

The Delhi HC said that it could not pass any interim order unless it heard the other party as well. The petitioners must first serve a copy to AgustaWestland, the court further said.
