court can creat charge on movables under special circumstances - their lordships created charge on retirement benefits of husband for permanent alimony claims of wife and daughter under sec.25 of Hinu Marriage Act
Section 25 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 (for short, 'the Act)
for grant of Rs.25,00,000/- towards her permanent alimony and
Rs.20,00,000/- to Kumari K. Navya, (the daughter of the
petitioner and the respondent), towards her maintenance,
education and marriage expenses.
The petitioner requests this
Court to create a charge over the G.P.F. and other retiral
benefits of the respondent,
While Section 25 of the Act provides for creation of a
charge on immovable property for securing payment of
permanent alimony, the respondent denies having any
immovable property and, despite alleging that he has a house
and a plot at Vanasthalipuram and Desaipet, the petitioner has
been unable to produce any evidence in this regard.  In the
absence of any evidence in support of the petitioners plea, this
Court must proceed on the premise that the respondent does
not have any immovable property.
 Should this Court then fold
its hands, and express its inability to come to the aid of a single
mother who has been struggling for the past seventeen years not
only to make both ends meet, but also to provide for the
education of their daughter for the past several years?
answer can only be in the negative.  It cannot be lost sight of
that the law does not remain static, and does not operate in a
vacuum. As social norms and values change, laws too have to be
reinterpreted, and recast. Law is really a dynamic instrument
fashioned by society for the purposes of achieving harmonious
adjustment, human relations by elimination of social tensions
and conflicts. Law does not stand still; it moves continuously.
Once this is recognised, then the task of a judge is put on a
higher plane. He must consciously seek to mould the law so as
to serve the needs of the time

we direct that the permanent alimony, payable
by the respondent to the petitioner in terms of the order now
passed by this Court, shall be secured by way of a charge over
the retiral/terminal benefits of the respondent.  The charge
shall, however, be limited only to such of those retiral benefits
for which there is no statutory prohibition for creation of a
charge or attachment.

Or.18, rule 17 and sec.151 C.P.C - petition filed for reopen and examination of the executant of Ex.A1 the sale deed to fill up the lacuna in evidence pointed out at the time of arguments not maintainable = Shaik Gousiya Begum. ..Petitioner Shaik Hussan and others.... Respondents = Published in

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.

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.
