O R D E R
K.T. SANKARAN, J.C.R.P.No. 703 of 2005 A
Dated this the 24th day of August, 2007
O R D E RThe decree holders in E.P.No.10 of 2004 in L.A.R.No.55 of 1985, on the file of the court of the Subordinate Judge of Kottarakkara, challenge the order dated 8th April, 2005 passed by the court below. By the impugned order, the court below accepted the statement filed by the judgment debtor. The case of the petitioners is that the contentions put forward by the decree holders were not considered by the court below. It is submitted that both sides had filed claim statements. The order impugned does not clearly indicate the reason for rejection of the claim made by the petitioners except stating that the petitioners are not entitled to interest on solatium. The learned counsel for the petitioners submitted that there is no claim for interest on solatium since claim for interest on solatium was specifically rejected by the judgment of the reference court.
2. When both parties filed statement and there is dispute as to the amount recoverable, executing court should consider the rival contentions and pass an order as to the amount due to the decree holders. Reasons also should be stated as to why a particular claim is accepted or rejected. Since it is not clear from the order impugned as to how the court below C.R.P. NO.703 OF 2005 arrived at the figure of Rs.1,143/- as payable to the decree holders, the order passed by the court below is set aside. The court below shall consider the matter afresh and pass a considered order on the merits after affording an opportunity of being heard to both parties. The Civil Revision Petition is allowed as indicated above. (K.T.SANKARAN) Judge ahz/
