Plaintiff has to succeed only on strength of his case and not on weak defence case in a suit for declaration of title and possession-SC 2014

Union of India and others Vs. Vasavi Co-op. Housing Society Ltd-2014-POSSESSION AND TITLE- A family settlement is based generally on the assumption that there was an antecedent title of some kind in the purchase and the arrangement acknowledges and defines what that title was. In a family settlement-cum-partition, the parties may define the shares in the joint property and may either choose to divide the property by metes and bounds or may continue to live together and enjoy the property as common.

In a suit for partition, the plaintiff produced Land Records – Whether he needs to prove the same?

The Supreme Court in Choote Khan V. Mal Khan [1954 AIR 575, 1955 SCR 60] while considering the nature of the entries in Jamabandi and as to whether such entries fall within the purview of Record of Rights maintained under Section 31 of the Punjab Land Revenue Act, 1887 observed that “by section 44 of the Punjab Land Revenue Act an entry made in the record of rights or in an annual record shall be presumed to be true until the contrary is proved. That entries in the Jamabandies fall within the purview of the record of rights under section 31 of the Act admits of no doubt.

DHC Dismissed Juhi Chawla’s Suit against 5G testing for wasting time, imposed cost-04/06/2021

Since the 5G roll-out has not actually happened, though – equally damaging – trials involving the human population have started (which is not the same as doing trials on pigs and/or rats, and/or in an empty Thar Desert, or on the employees of the private defendants) – so that not even one single human life is lost by these trials, the plaintiffs are agreeable if this Court, while waiving the requirement of Section 80(1) of the CPC, grants fair opportunity to the State Defendants to show cause as to why no interim relief be granted which, in any case, is sought against the private defendants, and not against the State defendants.
