Ok sir, if the stage of calling witnesses is gone or suit is in evidence stage in a civil suit, then is there any way by submitting an application or taking permission from the high court to get one chance to call oath commissioner for witness?

The defendant must have taken it as a preliminary objection in his written statement, is it? If so, whether the Court has framed it as an issue? Otherwise, request the Court to make it as a preliminary issue to be decided before proceeding further. Let the plaintiff prove his document. As a defendant you need not call/summon the notary public/ records of Registrar of Companies and/or any other witness(es) to prove that the subject "Partnership Deed" is forged, fabricated or original. It would be advisable to consult a local prudent senior for better appreciation of facts/ records and guidance.
