Amendment of affidavit

Management Trainee

Dear all,

  • Does an affidavit also forms a part of pleadings ?

  • Will Order VI Rule 17 which is applicable to amendment of pleading also be applicable on affidavits ?

Please advise as how to amend an affidavit whish is filed along with Written Statement where the trial has not yet begun.

1. It does not work injustice to the other side

2. It is necessary for the purpose of determining the real question in controversy.

3.It does not change the nature of the suit.
