Appeal to Appellate Tribunal
(1) Any person aggrieved, by any order made by the Debts Recovery Tribunal under section 17, may
prefer an appeal alongwith such fee, as may be prescribed to the Appellate Tribunal within thirty days from the
date of receipt of the order of Debts Recovery Tribunal:
PROVIDED that different fees may be prescribed for filing an appeal by the borrower or by the person
other than the borrower:
PROVIDED FURTHER that no appeal shall be entertained unless the borrower has deposited with the
Appellate Tribunal fifty per cent. of the amount of debt due from him, as claimed by the secured creditors or
determined by the Debts Recovery Tribunal, whichever is less:
PROVIDED ALSO that the Appellate Tribunal may, for the reasons to be recorded in writing, reduce the
amount to not less than twenty-five per cent. of debt referred to in the second proviso.
(2) Save as otherwise provided in this Act, the Appellate Tribunal shall, as far as may be, dispose of the
appeal in accordance with the provisions of the Recovery of Debts Due to Banks and Financial Institutions Act,
1993 (51 of 1993) and rules made thereunder.
