what are the lawful timings of /sending /receiving Notices issued by court in a house , dwelled by women. is an offnce committed if bailiff drops/ acknowldge Notice after 7pm i.e.much later than sunset.....
The Court Bailiff usually can come at reasonable timings between 9.30am and 6.00pm, however if the person is not available during these timings, the Court Bailiff will paste the Court summons at the door on his third visit make a report in his record book and in such event the summons are considered as legally served.
Sir JC vash*ta I am thankful for your response. 2. Sir Kashore Mehta , I appreciate that you conntected to my point. Now I want to submit that if bailiff comes late intetionaly and habitually , to harras the party of case....is he committing offence??
Usually the Court Bailiff would not do so intentionally, unless he bears some personal grudge against the person. However the argument appears academic and is useless as the main purpose is to serve and receive the Court summons, which is received after having been delivered or pasted. Important matter is the attendance of the person at the Court at the prescribed time. You can file a seperate case against the Court Bailiff for any misdemeanor.
As far as I know, no such specific time-frame has been stipulated but normally during the day time, i,e. before sunset especially where women alone are staying. However, it may depend upon various factors and circumstances. As you may be knowing sometime back even the highest Court of the land conducted some urgent matters even during night with short notice and in such cases, Court Notices/Summons may have to be served even at odd hours too!
