Section 15 of the civil procedure court provides that every suit shall be instituted in the court of the lowest grade competent to try it. As per A.P Civil Courts Act the pecuniary jurisidiction of the courts is as follows: Suits over 3,00,000/- and but not exceeding Rs. 15,00,000/- lie before the Senior Civil Judge's Courts and exceeding Rs. 15,00,000/- lie before District Courts.
