I have filed a case of permanent and mandatory injunction. After a year I withdraw it with the permission to file a fresh case of same cause of action under order23 rule1.

Defendant contention is that the case is still hit by order 2 rule 2.

What is correct situation.

If the court has granted liberty to file afresh in the same cause of action, then it is not hit by order 2 Rule 2 CPC.
