Mr. Sanjeev has partly replied. In fact a summary suit covers other money suits also depending upon the amount of money involved. The subject comes under State Laws and different States have made their own laws defining the term Summary Suit. Hence, one has to see the provision made in the State Laws. So please check the State laws prevailing in your State.
