Hello, thank you for your query.

Letters patent is a type of legal instrument in the form of a published written order issued by a monarch, president, or other head of state, which generally grants an office, right, monopoly. title, or, status to a person or corporation. Letters patent can be used for the creation of corporation or government offices, or for granting city status or a coat of arms.

Section 96 of the CPC provides that an appeal shall lie from a decree passed by any Court exercising original jurisdiction to the authorized appellate Courts, except where expressly prohibited. Section 100 provides for a second appeal under this code. It states that an appeal shall lie to the High Court from a decree passed in the first appeal by a subordinate Court.

There is no third party appeal.
