what is summary suit

In summary suit, the defendant is not entitled to defend as a matter of right as is the case in a ordinary suit, has to obtain the leave of the court to defend. If the court refuses to grant him leave to defend, then the suit is decreed immediately. In that sense, the summary suit is faster procedure for recovery of money. But summary suit can be filed only in case of specified documents like promissiory note, etc.However, once ordinary suit is filed, then subsequently another suit (whether under summary procedure or otherwise) can not be filed on same cause of action as the same would be barred under Order 2 Rule 2 CPC. Not only this, if the summary suit is filed now, it would be treated as fresh suit and fresh limitation would be computed for it, and in that case, it would apparently be time barred.

A Summary suit is intended to facilitate the speedy disposal of cases. The object that underlies the summary procedure is to guard against delaying tactics that are indulged in by a defendant, who may have no genuine defence. In short, the essence of summary suits is that the defendant is not, as in an ordinary suit, automatically endowed with the right to defend a suit. The right to exercise his defence will be granted to the defendant only if the court is convinced as to the authenticity of his claims. The summary procedure is a powerful weapon in the hands of a court to discourage frivolous defences
