G. ARAVINTHAN (Legal Consultant / Solicitor)     12 December 2008

Originally, a caveat was a document that could be served on either a judge or a public official to give him or her notice that he or she should discontinue a certain proceeding until an opposing party was given an opportunity to be heard.


Used in the past by someone objecting to the appointment of an executor or administrator of an estate or to the granting of a patent for an invention, the term caveat is rarely used by modern attorneys.

  1. CAVEAT is a plea made by the party to the dispute that the Authority should not decide the matter without hearing them. TO avoid Judgement on one side hearing this procedure is adopted.n.) Intimation of caution; warning; protest.

  2. (n.) A description of some invention, designed to be patented, lodged in the patent office before the patent right is applied for, and operating as a bar to the issue of letters patent to any other person, respecting the same invention.

  3. (n.) A notice given by an interested party to some officer not to do a certain act until the party is heard in opposition; as, a caveat entered in a probate court to stop the proving of a will or the taking out of letters of administration, etc

Caveat is a Latin expression which means "let him or her beware".


Caveat is a formal notification to a court or court officer not to take certain steps till the notifier is heard.


Section 148-A of Code of Civil Procedure empowers a person to lodge a caveat.

according to its dictionary meaning caveat is an official request that a court should not take a particular action without issusing notice to the party lodging the caveat and without affording an opportunity of hearing him.

Jayendra Sevada (Advocate)     29 December 2008

CAVEAT = BE AWARE


 


COURT CANNOT ISSUE NOTICE ON A WELL HEARD N DECIDED CASE WITHOUT PROVINDING AN OPPURTUNITY TO THE PERSON WHO HAS FILED THE CAVET WITH THE OFFICE OF THE COURT.


 


CAVEAT GIVES AN OPPURTUNITY TO THE PERSON WHO WAS THE PARTY TO THAT PARTICULAR CASE IN THE LOWER COURT.


 


CAVEAT SIMPLIFIES THE PROCESS OF LAW. AS THE JUDGE WILL HEAR BOTH THE PARTIES BEFORE REJECTING OR ACCEPTING THE CASE.


 


IN ANTICIPATION,


JAYENDRA SEVADA.
