With the imposition of quarantine, production bans and city-wide lockdowns, COVID-19 is turning out to be a twin-fold pandemic. Something that started affecting public health, soon spread throughout the economy and the supply chains it is dependent on. Coronavirus continues to impact business and has forced major disruptions for majority industries within India. The extraordinary "Force Majeure "clause of Indian Contract Act is becoming increasingly pertinent; and finding a solution to this chaos isn't trouble-free.

In this Global Health situation, it is wise for businesses to review their contracts underlying their commercial relationships. What happens when a contract cannot be fulfilled within the prescribed time or at all because of the pandemic? Will the changes in Government policies on lockdown impact time bound contracts? Is the outbreak of COVID-19 a force majeure situation?

This Digital Master Class will focus on:

  • In case of no Force Majeure clause, can section 32 and 56 of the Indian Contract Act be invoked?
  • What are the Government policies on the lockdown impacting time bound contracts, and are they working in tandem to avoid litigation?
  • What should a corporate be doing and what measures can be taken in such a situation?
  • How reliable is the force majeure clause? Can companies depend on legal remedies?
  • If vendors are not ready to let go will this lead to litigation in the near future?
  • How has COVID -19 impacted retailers? With zero revenues, can a waiver of lease be granted?
  • Can force majeure relief be available for events that could have been avoided? Is the disaster recovery plan taken into consideration?
  • How to prepare a step by step plan of action once the haze clears?
  • Measures to overcome cost implications and lost business opportunities
  • What are the necessary precautions to be taken post the pandemic for such an event
