There has been another change in the Domain Dispute Panelist / Arbitrators with .IN Registry as one of the most talked about Arbitrator Mr. Sampath Sridharan has exited for the unknown reasons. The last INDRP decided by him was the matter of enersysindia.in (INDRP/923 ) on 13 October 2017 wherein the ordered for transfer of Domain name along with compensation of Rs 1 Lakh.
The .IN Domain Investors will surely cherish the news, as Mr Sridharan has been granting compensation in almost every INDRP Decision with maximum costs of Rs 10 Lakh and holds record for the most costs ever imposed. The first INDRP complaint decided by Mr Sridharan was pepsico.in (INDRP/014 ) on 24 June 2006 and since then he has presided in 60 INDRP matters, and announced Rs 10 Lakh compensation in 24 INDRP matters.

Though, there have been more since then, will be updated soon here.
