M.L. Ramchandrasetty and ors. Vs. M.L. Nagappasetty and ors.

Court : Karnataka

Reported in : AIR1950Kant23; AIR1950Mys23

ORDER1. These two cases may be conveniently disposed of by the same order as the points involved for consideration in both are practically identical. The order sought to be revised in both cases in one passed in a suit dismissing two applications one of which, I.A. No. IV was filed by a son of the plaintiff and the other I.A. No. VIII by the sons of the defendants for being added as parties in the suit. The original plaintiff now being dead the petitioner in I.A. No. IV has been impleaded s one of his legal representatives and in view of his being thus made a party in the case Sri Somasekhara Rao, the learned counsel, represents on his behalf that there is no need to consider the correctness of the order so far as he is concerned. The defendants and their sons have applied separately in these two cases for the order being set aside with respect to I.A. No. VIII.2. The pleadings in the case are lengthy, the properties involved are of considerable value and the contest between the partie...

Court : Karnataka

Reported in : AIR1950Kant13; AIR1950Mys13

Mallappa, J.1. This is an appeal against the judgment and decree in R.A. No. 105 of 47-48 on the file of the Additional Subordinate Judge, Bangalore, confirming those of the II Munsiff, Bangalore, in O.S. No. 131 of 1946-47 on the file of this Court.2. The plaintiff-respondent filed the suit against the defendant-appellant for recovery of the Rs. 513 due on a promissory note executed by the defendant on 3rd September 1997 in favour of the deceased husband of the plaintiff. The plaintiff relied on an endorsement on the promissory note dated 7th September 1940 for the payment made towards interest. The defendant is admittedly an agriculturist. The defendant is admittedly an agriculturist within the meaning of the Mysore Agriculturists' Relief Act and he has pleaded discharge. This has not been believed by both the Courts and the suit is decreed as prayed for.3.

Puttamma Vs. Chikka Hanumiah and ors.

Court : Karnataka

Reported in : AIR1950Kant18; AIR1950Mys18

Mallappa, J.1. This is an appeal against the decision in R.A. 145 of 1947 48 on the file of the Additional Subordinate Judge, Bangalore reversing that of the second Munsiff, Bangalore in Execution No. 317 of 1946-47.2. The point for consideration in this appeal is whether Execution Case No. 317 of 1946/47 referred to above was rightly dismissed as barred by tim.e This execution case filed on 27th January 1947 more than 12 years after 27th November 1933 the date of the decree sought to be executed, and more than 3 years after the dismissal of previous Execution Case No. 802 of 1933-34 on 23rd November 1984, is clearly barred both under Section 48, Civil, P.C. as well as under Art. 182, Limitation Act unless it is construed to be continuation of the latter execution case.3. The short point for consideration is, therefore, whether Execution No. 317 of 1946-47 can be construed to be a continuation of Execution No. 802 of 1933-34. The latter case was dismissed on 23rd November 1934 as decre...
