SUBJECT: ARTICLE 227DISTRICT:  EAST GODAVARI

THE HON’BLE SRI JUSTICE S. RAVI KUMAR
C.R.P. Nos. 1202 of 2012 and 1279 of 2016
COMMON ORDER:
These two Revisions are preferred against common order dt.09.01.2012 in I.A.No.64 of 2012 and I.A.No.65 of 2012 in MVOP.No.264 of 2010 on the file of the Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal-cum-District Court, East Godavari District at Rajahmundry (for short ‘the Tribunal’).
2. These two petitions are filed by the claimant in the above referred O.P., one to receive documents by condoning delay and the other to recall him for the purpose of marking those documents.
3. The contesting respondent in the O.P. reported no counter for the reliefs claimed in the two petitions.
4. The Tribunal dismissed the said applications purely on technical ground that Order VII Rule 14(3) CPC is incorporated in CPC to minimize the delay in disposal of the cases and filing this type of applications would amount to protract the proceedings.
5. Heard both sides.
6. Admittedly, main case before the Tribunal is claiming compensation for the injuries sustained by the revision petitioner in a motor accident. It is also not in dispute that the legislation under the Motor Vehicles Act is a beneficial legislation and the Courts have to show a liberal approach in dealing with such cases.
7. The revision petitioner sought to file 
(1) disability certificate issued by the District Medical Board, Kakinada, 
(2) appointment letter of Scott Willsion India (P) Ltd., (under NHAI), 
(3) approved letter issued by NHAI, 
(4) confirmation letter of Scott Willsion (P) Ltd under NHAI, 
(5) salary slips issued by Scott Willsion (p) Ltd under NHAI showing that he is drawing a salary of Rs.22,000/- per month, and 
(6) service certificate from Nov., 2006 to 2010 issued by Scott Willsion under NHAI. 
8. It is not in dispute that, to decide the quantum of compensation, earnings of the victim is a relevant factor. Petitioner has explained the reasons for not filing these documents along with the O.P. and that explanation was not disputed by the opposite parties. The Tribunal instead of allowing the claimant to produce those documents in evidence dismissed the applications merely on hyper technicalities. Claim petition filed by the revision petitioner remained as pending, because of the stay granted by this Court, in these revisions.
9. Considering these aspects, I feel that the Tribunal has grossly erred in dismissing both the applications and failed to exercise the judicial discretion vested in it.
10. For these reasons, the impugned order dt.09.01.2012 in I.A.No.64 of 2012 and I.A.No.65 of 2012 is set aside. Consequently, I.A.No.64 of 2012 and I.A.No.65 of 2012 are allowed. As it is an old matter, the Tribunal is directed to dispose of the OP.No.264 of 2010 within a period of two (02) months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order. 11. Accordingly, both the Civil Revision Petitions are allowed. No costs. 12. As a sequel, miscellaneous petitions, if any, shall stand dismissed. ____________________ S.

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.

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....
