U.P. Power Corporation Ltd. & Others v. Zakir Hasan & Others - CIVIL REVISION No. 46 of 2007  RD-AH 13344 (1 August 2007)
A suit was filed by respondents 1 to 3 against the U.P.Power Corporation Ltd. Sri Ranjeet Saxena counsel for the applicants stated that it was a suit for declaration but it appears that the statement is not correct and actually it was a suit for injunction. The application filed by the Power Corporation for amendment has been rejected in part by the court below. It was submitted by Sri Ranjeet Saxena that the papers regarding the property are lying with the Executive Engineer, Roorkee who is under the Uttranchal Power Corporation and therefore Uttranchal Power Corporation ought to have been impleaded as a party. In my opinion this contention has no merit. The parties required to be impleaded are either necessary or proper parties. Necessary party is one in whose absence an effective decree cannot be passed or against whom relief has been sought which in this case is the U.P.Power Corporation Ltd. No relief has been sought against the Uttaranchal Power Corporation. A proper party is one whose presence is necessary for effective adjudication of the dispute. The mere fact that the papers are with the Executive Engineer, Roorkee which is under the Uttranchal Power Corporation is no ground for permitting the amendment that the suit is bad for nonjoinder. It appears from the order of the trial court that earlier an application for impleadment was filed which was rejected by order dated 14.11.1106. It has also been observed by the trial court that evidence of some witnesses has been recorded.
No other contention has been raised by Sri Ranjeet Saxena. Dismissed.
