The Plaintiff filed an application U/s. 151 CPC to amend the affidavit given by him under Order 18 Rule 4 of CPC. The learned judge allowed the application and the plaintiff was allowed to amend his affidavit by overwriting on earlier affidavit. I, the defendant, filed a writ in the High Court against the said order. The high court in its order said that "The order relating to amendment of affidavit is hereby quashed. The respondent (plaintiff) is permitted to file fresh affidavit incorporating the previous facts and amending the claim."
My query with regard to above facts is:
1. Can affidavits on oath be changed or filed afresh?
2. What is the imiplication of the words in high courts order - file fresh affidavit incorporating the previous facts and amending the claim.
3. What does Should i refer the matter to double bench of high court
