Court : DRAT Mumbai

Reported in : I(2008)BC131

1. This appeal has been filed impugning order dated 12th September, 2006 passed by the Presiding Officer of D.R.T.-I, Mumbai rejecting application filed by the appellant company to lead secondary evidence on the basis of notarized copies of the original documents tendered along with appellant company's affidavit of evidence in support of its claim.2. Case of the appellant is that the documents mentioned in the application dated 24th January, 2006 which were kept in the appellant's factory were destroyed due to flood which took place in Mumbai on 26th July, 2005 because of heavy rainfall.

That application was rejected by the Presiding Officer on the ground that the notary had not mentioned whether the notarized copies were attested and prepared on the basi...

Sangli Bank Ltd. Vs. Encon Automotive (Pvt.) Ltd. and

Court : DRAT Mumbai

Reported in : IV(2007)BC11

1. This application for condonation of delay presents a very sorry state of affairs because after getting one more opportunity to file additional affidavit, there seems to be no desire on the part of the appellant Bank to put its house in order.2. The application is filed by the appellant Bank for condonation of delay of 224 days in filing the appeal against an order of dismissal of claim of the Bank as against the defendant Nos. 3 to 5 and against other defendants in respect of reduction in the rate of interest while decreeing the claim against them.3. In the affidavit filed by the branch manager in support of the application for condonation of delay, reason given is that the previous Advocate representing the appellant Bank had orally given advice to file review application before the D.R.T. According to the Bank its previous advocate was perhaps ignorant about the settled law with respect to the issues involved in the present appeal and, therefore, the Bank had to approach experts ...

Western Ministil Ltd. Vs. Bank of Rajasthan and ors.

Court : DRAT Mumbai

Reported in : 2(2007)BC13

1. The only point which is required to be considered in these two appeals is whether in view of the terms and conditions of the letters of credit dated 5th August, 1991, the bills of exchange dated 5th August, 1991 drawn by the appellants, Western Ministil Limited and discounted by the respondent No. 1-the Bank of Rajasthan Limited can be said to be "without recourse" to the drawers. The said point is required to be considered in the following facts and circumstances.2. The respondent No. 3 Virgo Steels had placed orders on the appellants, Western Ministil Limited for supply of R.C.S. billets some time in the months of July and August, 1991. The payment was to be made under the letters of credit against the bills of exchange which were accepted by the buyers. The respondent No. 3 who were constituents of the respondent No. 2 the U.Co. Bank had got irrevocable letters of credit issued from the U.Co. Bank on 5th August, 1991 in favour of the appellants. The said letters of credit were w...

Vision Organics Ltd. and ors. Vs. Bank of Baroda

Court : DRAT Mumbai

Reported in : 2(2007)BC1

1. This combined appeal has been filed in respect of the common order dated 1st March, 2005 passed by the Presiding Officer, D.R.T., Ahmedabad disposing of three applications, one filed by the respondent Bank and two applications filed by the appellants. Normally the appellants ought to have filed three separate appeals against the common order which has disposed of three separate applications. Another anomaly in this appeal is that this appeal is filed by the three appellants i.e. the company and two directors who are also the guarantors through a common Advocate. Yet the appellant No. 2 argued the appeal in person and the Advocate for the appellants argued the matter on behalf of the appellant Nos. 1 and 3 stating that the appellant No. 2 had separated from the other two appellants who are none other than the borrower company of which he was a director and also the guarantor and the appellant No. 3 who is the wife of appellant No. 2. This seems to have been done probably with a view...

Silverline Technologies Ltd. Vs. Development Bank of Singapore and

Court : DRAT Mumbai

Reported in : I(2007)BC192

1. A short question which arises in this appeal is whether the Recovery Officer can issue a sale certificate in respect of the immovable property which was in the possession of D.R.T. receiver and sold by a private treaty as sanctioned by the Recovery Officer. The sale certificate issued earlier was withdrawn by an order dated 17th, July, 2006 passed by the Recovery Officer of D.R.T.-II, Mumbai against which the appeal filed before the D.R.T was also dismissed on 7th August, 2006 which order is impugned in the present appeal.3. While dismissing the appeal, the D.R.T.-II has observed that if the sale is by private treaty, the sale certificate cannot be issued by the Tribunal. It is further observed that the sale certificate is issued by the Tribunal in a case in which the Recovery Officer himself undertakes to sell and not in a sale by private treaty in which the Recovery Officer has no role to play and therefore he dismissed the appeal from the facts which have been placed on record a...

Few facts which give rise to the appeal are as follows: Trade Aid and Paper Allied Products (India) Private Limited (hereinafter referred to as 'drawer') had agreed to supply goods viz. white printing papers to the appellants.

The bill for Rs. 9,99,999/- was payable on or before 13th December, 1992. The said bill was accepted by the appellants for the purchase of the goods.
