1. If the order is an order under Section 562 of the Code of Civil Procedure, as contended for by appellants, it is clearly bad, as the original Court had not disposed of the suit on a preliminary point. The course the Judge should have adopted in order to ascertain the boundaries of the plaint land, if that information was necessary, was to have sent down an issue on the point for trial under Section 5661 of the Code.
2. It is however contended on the other side that the order was one merely for the amendment of the plaint in the matter of boundaries and was passed under Section 582 of the Code as an order that should have been passed by the original Court. But the answer is that there was no dispute as to the boundaries of the land before the original Court, and, therefore, that that Court could have bad no ground for returning the plaint for amendment. We are of opinion that this fact takes the case out of the purview of Section 582 even if that section is at all applicable. It follows that the remand must have been under Section 562, and as such it was an illegal order. We, therefore, reverse it and direct the Judge to dispose of the appeal on its merits.
Section 566: If the Court against whose decree the appeal is made has omitted to
frame or try any issue, or to determine any question of fact,
When Appellate Court which appears to the Appelate Court essential to the right

against whose decree the appeal is made, and in such case shall
diret such Court to take the additional evidence required,
and such Court shall proceed to try such issues, and shall return to the Appellate Court
its finding thereon together with the evidence.
