Order VI Rule 17 CPC = The proviso to Order VI Rule 17 stipulates that no application for amendment of written statement shall be allowed after the trial has commenced unless the Court comes to conclusion that inspite of due diligence, the party could not have raised the matter before the commencement of trial. It is not in dispute that trial had already commenced and the matter was coming up for cross examination of P.W.1 when I.A.No.400 of 2014 was filed. The proviso to Order VI Rule 17 CPC is therefore attracted and as the petitioner could not show that their inability to file the application earlier was despite due diligence, the Court below has rightly rejected the application.

THE HON’BLE SRI JUSTICE RAMESH RANGANATHAN
CIVIL REVISION PETITION NO.157 OF 2016
ORDER:
This revision, under Article 227 of the Constitution of India, is preferred against the order passed by the III Senior Civil Judge, City Civil Court, Hyderabad in I.A.No.400 of 2014 in O.S.No.402 of 2011 dated 07.11.2015.
This petition in I.A.No.400 of 2014 was filed under Order VI Rule 17 of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 (CPC) seeking permission of the Court to amend the written statement. The Court below, relying on the proviso to Order VI Rule 17 CPC which requires amendment of the pleadings to be allowed only if the Court comes to the conclusion that inspite of due diligence the applicant could not seek amendment earlier, observed that no material was placed by the petitioner to satisfy the due diligence requirement. It is on this ground that the Court below rejected the petitioner’s application.
The proviso to Order VI Rule 17 stipulates that no application for amendment of written statement shall be allowed after the trial has commenced unless the Court comes to conclusion that inspite of due diligence, the party could not have raised the matter before the commencement of trial. It is not in dispute that trial had already commenced and the matter was coming up for cross examination of P.W.1 when I.A.No.400 of 2014 was filed. 
The proviso to Order VI Rule 17 CPC is therefore attracted and as the petitioner could not show that their inability to file the application earlier was despite due diligence, the Court below has rightly rejected the application. 
The jurisdiction, which this Court exercises under Article 227 of the Constitution, is supervisory and save patent illegality, no interference is called for. The order of the Court below does not suffer from any such infirmity. The Civil Revision Petition fails and is, accordingly, dismissed. There shall be no orders as to costs. Miscellaneous petitions, if any, pending shall stand dismissed. ______________________________ (RAMESH RANGANATHAN, J) 3 rd June 2016 RRB

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.
