1. This second appeal arises out of a suit for partition. The land in suit is in khata No. 2 of Mahal Baqimanda in a certain village and both the Courts below dismissed the suit on the finding that the suit was not cognizable by the Civil Court. It is urged that the khata in suit has not been assessed to revenue and, I therefore, the Civil Court can partition it. In our opinion this argument has no force. Although the land in this khata, which consists of the abadi of the village, is not assessed to revenue, nevertheless it forma part of a mahal and, therefore, the jurisdiction of the Civil Court is barred by Section 233(k) of the Land Revenue Act, 1901.
