A solitary appointed authority seat of Justice Asha Menon was managing petitions testing the request dated fourth August 2020 wherein the Trial Court deferred orders on solicitor's application under Order XII Rule 6 and under Order XV-An of CPC which were held by the Court and recorded five suits for contentions on revision application documented by the respondents.

"This Court infers that there was nothing to block the took in Trial Court from hearing the application under Order VI Rule 17 of CPC, which was recorded by the respondents/litigants, even get-togethers hearing on the application under Order XII Rule 6 of CPC documented by the candidate/offended party was closed", the High Court noticed.

"It would likewise be valuable to allude to Order VI Rule 17 of CPC. This, again alludes to a "phase of the procedures" and not the "hearing", as all together IX Rule 7 of CPC.

"The petitions being without merits are appropriately excused alongside the forthcoming applications.
