Sukhwinder Singh v. M/S Khushi Ram Jiwan Dass - CR-1058-2006  RD-P&H 779 (15 February 2006)
CIVIL REVISION NO. 1058 of 2006
DATE OF DECISION: February 23, 2006.
M/S Khushi Ram Jiwan Dass
CORAM: HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE JASBIR SINGH
PRESENT: Mr. Vijay Rana,Advocate, for the petitioner.
Vide order under challenge, defence of the petitioner was struck off for want of filing written-statement. Present revision petition has been filed after about 1- ½ year of the passing of the said order. This clearly indicates that from the day one, intention of the petitioner was to delay the proceedings. No doubt, provisions of Order 8 Rule 1 CPC are directory in nature and not mandatory and written-statement can be taken on record beyond the period prescribed, but act of the petitioner is such that he is not entitled to any relief from this Court. Dismissed.
February 23, 2006. ( Jasbir Singh )
