When the party of the suit attested the Will Deed and when not disputed his signature as attestatror - and when only disputes the bequeathing of property - the question of proof of will does not arise -2015 A.P.(2006) MSKLAWREPORTS.


another interesting feature is that the plaintiff attested the said document as one of the attesters by affixing her thumb impression. The plaintiff did not dispute the thumb impression and took a plea that even if the thumb impression is obtained on the Will, she was a minor by the date of the execution of the Will, therefore, it has no effect. But on record, it came to light that the plaintiff was a major by the date of the execution of the Will and she never disputed the attestation of the Will, though she disputed bequeathing of property in favour of the second defendant.

 The learned Counsel for the appellant submitted that though there was some discrepancy in describing the paper used for the Will, the contents have been effectively proved by examining all the attestors and son of the scribe. The said Will was executed out of love and affection towards the second defendant by the mother of the plaintiff as the second defendant's father gave them shelter and brought them up by providing food and clothing for a considerable period and another interesting feature is that the plaintiff attested the said document as one of the attesters by affixing her thumb impression. The plaintiff did not dispute the thumb impression and took a plea that even if the thumb impression is obtained on the Will, she was a minor by the date of the execution of the Will, therefore, it has no effect. But on record, it came to light that the plaintiff was a major by the date of the execution of the Will and she never disputed the attestation of the Will, though she disputed bequeathing of property in favour of the second defendant. There is also supporting material to show that the second defendant is enjoying the property since more than 20 years by the date of filing of the suit and the exhibits marked on his behalf would also reflect that he was in possession and enjoyment of the property. Had there not been any Will executed by the mother of the plaintiff, the plaintiff would have been in possession of the property as a natural heir or she would have taken, such steps immediately after the death of her mother to recover the possession of the property or to protect the property being the legal heir of the mother.

Article 54 of the Limitation Act, 1963 (36 of 1963) reads as follows: “For Specific performance of a contract: Three years The date fixed for the performance, or, if no such date is fixed, when the plaintiff has notice that performance is refused.”= the apex Court in Ahmmadsahb Abdul Mila vs. Bibijan[1], wherein it was held that the date fixed for the performance of the contract should be a specified date in the calendar, and submitted that since no specified date in the calendar for performance of the contract is mentioned in the agreement of sale, the second limb of Article 54 of the Limitation Act is applicable. ; whether the suit is barred by limitation or not becomes a tribal issue and when there is a tribal issue, the lower Court ought not to have rejected the plaint at the threshold. In view of the same, order, dated 27-01-2012, in CFR.No.90 of 2012, passed by the Additional Senior Civil Judge, Ongole, (FAC) Senior Civil Judge, Darsi, is, hereby, set aside. The Appeal is allowed accordingly.

Order 39 Rules 1 and 2 CPC. plaintiff has to prove his title and possession how he came into possession prima faice , in the absence of the same, not entitled for interim injunction = The questions as to whether the lease deed was properly stamped and whether the stamp paper on which it was typed can be said to have been procured through proper source, need to be dealt with at the stage of trial.; The suit filed by the 1st respondent, is the one for injunction simplicitor in respect of an item of immovable property. He has also filed an application under Order 39 Rules 1 and 2 CPC. Basically, it was for the 1st respondent to establish that he is in possession and enjoyment of the property and that he derived the same through lawful means, particularly when he did not contend that he encroached upon the property.= assumptions of facts against to the contents of crucial third party by misreading the same- it is just un-understandable as to how the trial Court gathered the impression that Anuradha stated that there was a meeting of Board of Directors, where it was decided to lease the property to the appellants. - the trial Court itself was not clear as to whether the appellant is the lessee or a Manager or is working under any other arrangement. - The important findings that have a bearing upon the valuable rights of the parties cannot be based upon such uncertain and unverified facts. One of the cardinal principles in the matter of examining the applications filed under Order 39 Rules 1 and 2 CPC is that a party claiming that relief must come to the Court with clean hands. Prima facie, we find that there are no bona fides, much less consistency on the part of the 1st respondent, in his effort to get the order of temporary injunction. The trial Court has misread the evidence and misinterpreted the facts borne out by the record.
