      Rule 6—Judgment on admission—Admission of fact
      clear and unambiguous-admission on law not requirednot mandatory to act and pass judgment-an application
      for judgment against D4 tenant-admission in written
      statement-D4 admitted plaintiff and D1 to D3 co-sharer
      of the suit property-D4 inducted into the suit property
      as tenant by D1 to D3 at the back of the plaintiff-lease
      executed by D1 to D3 not valid D4 liable to vacate the
      premises—Contended right of tenancy could not be
      raised an vague plea of settlement-or a contrary plea
      of being co-sharer-pleadings insufficient for raising
      an issue—D4 contended-admissions as alleged not in
      the written statement-fact stated in the preliminary
      objection without prejudice-do not constitute reply on
      merit-verification averment in the preliminary
      objections-believed to be true-legal information
      received-D2 to WS division of property took placebeing a disputed question could not be decided at
      this stage—Court Observed-distribution of equal
      portion to each co-parcner being in possession of
      each for a long time-accepted-enjoyed by them without
      any objection-hindrance-denial-obstruction-amounts to
      division/partition—Held- settled law if a co-parcner is
      in exclusive possession of any portion of undivided piece of land or property not exceeding his or her
      share-her share in possession cannot be disturbed
      until partition-transferee would also have the right
      and could not be dispossessed by other co-sharer
      until partition-the property ancestral-D1 to D3 have
      right in the said property-left behind by Sh. Ajay Khanna
      husband of D2 and also through WILL the preliminary

      admission-further Held-for judgment on admission to
      be pronounced at any stage admission to be of fact
      clear and unambiguous-admissions not required of
      questions of law-however not mandatory for the Court
      to act and pass judgment the facts and circumstances
      of each case have to be taken note of plaintiff himself
      filed lease agreement—Therefore, it cannot be said
      that the averment in the written statement vague
      resulting in passing of defence in favour of the
      plaintiff—Application dismissed.
      Further the preliminary objections are based on legal advice.
      The same are not reply on merits wherein the party is
      required to plead facts specifically. In preliminary objections
      parties can even take contrary pleas. The same would not
      amount to an admission.

      It is well settled that an admission has to be categorical, in
      clear and unambiguous terms admitting the case of other
      side. In Sneh Vasih and another vs. Filatex India Ltd.
      and another, 95 (2002) DLT 373

      frivolous of fictitious pleadings which tend to prejudice and
      embarrass or delay the fair trial are liable to be struck off
      (b) for the judgment to be pronounced on admission, such
      admissions must be admission of facts, must be clear and
      unambiguous terms admitting the case of other parties. (c)
      admission of questions of law is not required.
