Dues recoverable from state govt- limitation

(Querist) 02 August 2015 This query is : Resolved 
My friend is trying to recover nearly Rs.3.00 lakhs from a state govt for goods supplied to its departments in 2005. Since all administrative remedies have failed, he intends to file a recovery suit for bill amount. In last 6 months part of bill is paid but balance is not being paid. Please inform me limitation period for unpaid amount of bills for which goods were supplied in 2005.Govt can recover its dues in 30 years. Whether this rule is applicable for dues recoverable from govt by a citizen or only 3 year is the limitation period.

Whether the department has admitted the dues during last 3 years? If so, it is within limitation and can be recovered.

The three years limitation will be from the last date of communication with the department which failed to make payment.
