Kindersley and Hutchins, JJ.
1. It has been held in Raja Rau v. Tolasi Ammal not reported, see I.L.R. 7 Mad. 82 Sabhanatha v. Subba Lakshmi I.L.R. 7 Mad. 80 that the words, 'a certain date' in Article 179 (6) of the Schedule to the Limitation Act, require that an actual date shall have been specified, either absolutely or in relation to some contingency, and that it is not enough that the payment has been ordered to be made monthly or annually, leaving it for the Court to say whether it is to be made at the end, or beginning, or middle of the period. The petitioner cannot, therefore, rely on that clause, for his decree is simply that the money shall be paid annually. The words in Section 230 of the Procedure Code are the same, and that section, therefore, would also be a bar to the execution of this decree of 1854.
2. The appeal is dismissed with costs.
