Dear Learned Lawyers,
There is a time limit set in our legal system for each and everything to be followed in the court, say for example
- To file a suit in the court
- To file a written statement
- To set aside an ex-parte order,
- To file a review / revision petition
- To file an appeal petition etc. etc.,
But why no time limit specified to bring an end to a pending suit ? Why the court should allow a suit being dragged on for years together? If a person could not judge that the suit is being deliberately dragged on, taking the law permits as an excuse, then he cannot be the best judge. The court has been given inherent powers to arrive at a decision. If the judge is not using the powers, then he cannot be the best judge.
when an appellant who filed the appeal suit fails to turn up to the court to present his side of arguments, why the court should simply give him time for than four years ? Doesn’t the court has the power ? or doesn’t the judge have eyes to see the history of the case before he adjourns the case ? Why not an amendment be made in our CPC to dismiss the appeal suit which is pending for a year or more due to default of the appellant and prohibit him to go for further appeal / revision / review unless otherwise he comes up with acceptable justification to the court ?
I welcome your valuable views suggentions / comments on this.
