The mandate of an arbitrator terminates, if the arbitrator becomes unable to perform his functions or, for any other reason fails to act without undue delay or dies, or withdraws from office or if the parties agree on the termination. It may be noted that the provision for terminating the mandate by agreement is not found in many Arbitration Acts.

In case of undue delay by an arbitrator, the aggrieved party may move the High Court to remove him and to appoint another person in his place.
It is further provided that where the mandate of an arbitrator is terminated, the proceedings shall not be held de novo, unless the parties otherwise agree (sections 8-9).
