R.S.A. No. 472 of 1989
Date of decision: 11-10-2006
Shadi Ram alias Jai Dev Vs. Ram Kishan and others
CORAM: HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE UMA NATH SINGH
Present: Mr. R.S.Tacoria, Advocate, for the appellant Mr. R.K.Sharma, Advocate, for Mr. V.D.Sharma, Advocate UMA NATH SINGH, J.
This Regular Second Appeal arises out of a judgment dated 10.1.1989 passed by learned Additional District Judge, Kurukshetra, in Civil Appeal No. 42/13 of 1988, dismissing the first appeal of the present appellant and consequently affirming the judgment and decree passed by the trial Court. At the time of admission of this Regular Second Appeal, the framing of substantial questions of law being not mandatory, learned counsel for the appellant has submitted the following substantial questions of law in the Court by way of a separate application:
1. Whether the appellant is owner in possession of 1/3rd of suit land
right from his birth because of surrender of the respective rights by appellant to elder brother?
2. Whether Article 65 of the Limitation Act was applicable in the present case?
As the learned Courts below have returned a categorical finding that the appellant was not in possession of 1/3rd of the suit
property, the first question, which essentially being a question of facts, stands answered. As regards the second question of the applicability of Article 65 of the Limitation Act, since the possession itself was found to be not proved and document heavily relied upon by the appellant, said to be a family settlement ( mark `A' ), was also not proved, this question does not arise in the facts and circumstances of this case. Accordingly, the Regular Second Appeal, being devoid of substantial questions of law, is dismissed as such.
