Dear Expert / friend,
1. I am defendant, a PSU bank filed a suit against my firm at Kolkata DRT on 5th July 2012 (against dispute dated June 2009) and I submit my WS within 10 days of receiving summon 1st hearing scheduled to be held next year (2016).
2. On 20th March 2014 I filed a damage suit against the bank at Calcutta High court.
3. Despite serving notice and 2 hearing dates nobody from the bank entered their presence in Calcutta High court I wonder why?
4. Now I came to know that a counter claim should have been submitted at DRT also.
5. Sir can I submit a counter claim now after filing WS at DRT and is there any time barred/ limitations having in mind that it is a 2009 dispute.
