RECENT UPDATE ON ORDER VII RULE 11 – SC judgement dated 9th July 2020 - DAHIBEN v. ARVINDBHAI KALYANJI BHANUSALI
HELD | The provision of Order VII Rule 11 is mandatory in nature - Order VII Rule 11 Code of Civil Procedure regarding 'Rejection of Plaint' is mandatory in nature.
Rationale given by court | The underlying object of Order VII Rule 11 (a) is that if in a suit, no cause of action is disclosed, or the suit is barred by limitation under Rule 11 (d), the Court would not permit the plaintiff to unnecessarily protract the proceedings in the suit. In such a case, it would be necessary to put an end to the sham litigation, so that further judicial time is not wasted. Lx Explains ! Learn with us !
Order VII rule 11 is mandatory in nature means – this provision is compulsory – we know Order 7 rule 11 (Briefly explained above ) gives on which grounds a plaint could be rejected thus if any of the grounds arise then it is compulsory on part of the court to reject the plaint, because allowing such a plaint would result in unnecessary protraction of suit.
