Q. What is the difference between Process Fees and Court Fees ?
Brief Facts : I intend a file a money-recovery suit for an amount of Rs. 10,000/- at a local district civil court in Maharahstra. As per the Court Fees Act, I will be paying Rs. 1505/- as court fee at the time of filing the suit.
My specific query is whether I need to pay separate 'Process Fees' for service of summons to the defendant in addition to the Court Fees (Rs. 1505/-) paid in advance.
Is Court Fees inclusive of Process Fees ?
If court-fees is exclusive of Process Fees, then how much amount will be required to be paid for 'Process Fees' ?
