CHENNAI: The Madras High Court on Friday overturned an award granted in favor of the Isha Foundation in the dispute over higher bills for using BSNL services. BSNL has issued invoices claiming Rs 20,18,198 for the billing period of 01.12.2018 to 31.12.2018 and another bill of Rs 2,30,29,264 for the billing period of 1.1.2019 to 1.02.2019 to Isha. He challenged the bills in the High Court, which appointed retired Justice E Padmanabhan as arbitrator and he struck down both bills. Against its order, the BSNL applied to the High Court.

Appearing for BSNL, lead solicitor P Wilson argued that once the calls were made and recorded in the exchange located inside the Isha Foundation, the ashram could not deny liability on the grounds that it did not make the calls.

He said the arbitrator did not take into account call records and many decisive documents, but relied on evidence provided by an ashram yogi, and added that the men could be lying , but not the machines. The arbitrator accepted the ashram’s version and dismissed BSNL’s entire claim, Wilson said. Concurring with his arguments, Judge Senthilkumar Ramamoothy quashed the award and ordered a further investigation by the arbitrator.

The clarification of Isha Yoga
BSNL raised a bill of Rs 2.5 crore for using the phone between December 2018 and January 2019 while Isha Yoga Center’s credit limit was only Rs 66,900 per month. Prior to this, the centre’s regular monthly bill was less than Rs 22,000 per month for the past 10 years. The arbitrator disagreed with BSNL’s assertion of such an extraordinarily high bill and ordered Isha Yoga Center to deposit an average monthly amount of Rs 22,000 per month for two months, December 2018 and January 2019.
