My wife filed suit on my property u/s 26 Order VII Rule 1 of CPC. She did not pay the court fee of Rs. 50,000. She got the exemption. I don't know the reason for getting the exemption. The allegations in the Suit are false.
I heard she got the exemption from Lok Adalath for the court fee. I am yet to see the exemption petition to findout the grounds for exemption. I am waiting for the exemption petition.
She was working and getting more than Rs 10,000 per month at the time of filing of the suit. Later her salary has increased.
I have read in internet that under Order 33 Rule 1 of CPC an applicant can claim court fee exemption as a pauper or indigent person. She is not a pauper and she was earning more than Rs. 10,000 at the time of filing of suit.
Can anyone suggest what could be the other possible grounds for getting exemptions ?
If she has lied to the Lok Adalath/Court that she does not have any source of funds to get court fee exemption, what should be my immediate course of action ?
Waiting for valuable suggestions of the experts in the forum.
Thanks in advance.
