DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE RESOLUTION



The Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) is a process established by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for the resolution of disputes regarding the registration of internet domain names. The UDRP currently applies to all generic top level domains (.com, .net, .org, etc.), some country code top-level domains, and some older top level domains in specific circumstances. The UDRP Policy sets out the legal framework for the resolution of disputes between a domain name registrant and a third party (i.e., a party other than the registrar) over the abusive registration and use of an Internet domain name in the generic top level domains or gTLDs (e.g., .biz, .com, .info, .mobi, .name, .net, .org), and those country code top level domains or ccTLDs that have adopted the UDRP Policy on a voluntary basis.

INDRP (the "Policy") has been adopted by NIXI, is incorporated by reference to the Registry Accreditation Agreement (RAA), and sets forth the terms and conditions which shall govern any or all disputes in connection with .IN or .Bharat (Available in all Indian Languages) domain name.

The .IN Registry shall appoint an Arbitrator from the list of empanelled arbitrators maintained by the Registry. The List of the Arbitrators shall be published on line by the .IN Registry on its website at www.registry.in. The Arbitrator shall conduct the Arbitration Proceedings in accordance with the Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996 amended as per the Arbitration & Conciliation (Amendment) Act, 2015 read with the Arbitration & Conciliation Rules as well as the INDRP Policy and Rules, as amended from time to time.

NIXI or .IN Registry will not participate in the administration or conduct of any arbitral proceeding and will remain neutral to the arbitration proceedings. In addition, NIXI or .IN Registry will not be liable to either party for any act or omission in connection with any arbitration proceedings under these Policy/Rules or for the result of any decisions rendered in the Arbitration proceedings.

No party shall implead NIXI or .IN Registry or its Registrar as a party in any legal proceeding. In the event that NIXI or .IN Registry is impleaded in any such legal proceeding, NIXI or .IN Registry reserves the right to raise any and all defenses deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend itself. The remedies available to a Complainant pursuant to any proceeding before an Arbitrator shall be limited to praying for the cancellation of the Registrant's domain name or the transfer of the Registrant's domain name registration to the Complainant. Costs as may be deemed fit may also be awarded by the Arbitrator. However, the implementation of such award of cost will not be supervised or controlled by .IN Registry.

This policy (INDRP) shall be applicable to all/any disputes relating to .IN or

.BHARAT (Available in all Indian Languages) IDN's in any of the other Indian Languages. Domains under .IN or BHARAT (Available in all Indian Languages) IDN's in any of the other Indian Languages must confirm the provisions under INDRP and the Rules of procedure laid out therein.

Any or all disputes shall be subject to the jurisdiction of Delhi courts only.
