even in family court the person
invloved in the case i mean petitioner or respondent  or the
person permitted by them under section 13 can contest the case and in
rest of the instances noway.

All ready answered

Kanhaiya Singh (Advocate)     24 July 2008

Any individual can contest his/her own cause in a litigation.So,after obtaining the Power of Attorney of a person to appear on his/her behalf as a party,you may contest with the permission of the Court.

SANJAY DIXIT (Advocate)     24 July 2008

In family courts petitioner and defendent have to appear in person. Attorney holder can't contest the case.

Vikram Chandra (Advocate)     25 July 2008

Yes, any individual who is not an advocate can contest the case on his own with the due permission of the concerned court and will be treated as party-in-person.

Mr. Yogesh,


Sorry to say, one can appear before Court, to provide documentary evidence on behalf of other, (with due POA), but he can not argue before the Court, as you are not authorized person to argue. Only Advocates are permitted to Plead / Argue on behalf of others.


If any body permitted for the same, then what is the use of Enrollment procedure which is Important as an Entiltlement Certificate for Practice.

Even in family courts, other than advocates are not permitted to defend the petitioner or respondent by holding a POA.
definitely in High Court, other than an advocate, an individual who is not an advocate but with POA cannot represent the case for either party.

jayachandran (legal)     26 July 2008

yes. What Sri Kapil says is correct

Thanks for giving valuable comments but please inform whether CPC allows petitioner in person,authorised agents, Pleaders to contest the case.The only difference is that Pleaders, Vakil,Advocates should have to file Vakalatnama and the Authorised agents have to appear with Power of Attorney/NOC on the behalf of the petitioner

Dear Yogesh, In the CPC it has not mentioned as to who will appear on behalf of a party? So, it clear that a party can contest a claim himself/herself and there is no legal bar in it.
