Petitioner is plaintiff and respondent the defendant. Suit was filed seeking a decree for declaration of title of item No.1 of the property and fixation of the boundary of item No.1 of the property and a mandatory injunction in respect of the structure constructed by the respondent. Petitioner filed I.A.927/05, an application under Order VI Rule 17 of Code of Civil Procedure, for amendment of the plaint. Respondent filed an objection and contended that permission cannot be granted to amend the plaint. Under Ext.P4 order learned Munsiff dismissed the application. It is challenged in this petition filed under Article 227 of Constitution of India.
2. Learned counsel appearing for petitioner and respondents were heard. W.P.C.NO.16113 OF 2006 (R) 2
3. Though under Ext.P4 order learned Munsiff stated that, if the amendment is allowed, the character of the suit will be changed, it is not true. Even if the amendment application is allowed neither the character nor the nature of the suit will be changed. The amendment was necessary consequent to the filing of the report by the commissioner. In such circumstances, in the interest of justice and for a just decision in the case, it is necessary to grant permission to amend the plaint as sought for. Ext.P4 order is quashed. I.A.927/05 stands allowed. Respondents are permitted to file additional written statement. M.SASIDHARAN NAMBIAR,
