The Suit is to be filed where the entire or part of cause of action arose/where the defendant resides or conducts business. So, non -indian company can file a suit for recovery of money in Indian courts.
If defendant files a counter claim, -only requirement is he is bound to pay the court fee, for the counter claim.
Or38Rule 5 CPC provides Attachment before Judgment' .
Or 25 Rule 1 CPC provides only Security for Costs.
