Originally, a caveat was a document that could be served on either a judge or a public official to give him or her notice that he or she should discontinue a certain proceeding until an opposing party was given an opportunity to be heard.


Used in the past by someone objecting to the appointment of an executor or administrator of an estate or to the granting of a patent for an invention, the term caveat is rarely used by modern attorneys.

Caveat is a Latin expression which means "let him or her beware".


Caveat is a formal notification to a court or court officer not to take certain steps till the notifier is heard.


Section 148-A of Code of Civil Procedure empowers a person to lodge a caveat.

Can a Caveat be filled in lower court (Civil) during hearing of civil suit ? Or is it filled only at HC ?

The matter is related to HMA / GWA / S. 125 CrPC ?
