Plaintiff has valued suit at 2 crore for jurisdiction. It has to be the same for court fee. Over Rs 1 lakh should thus have to be paid. Challenge to court fee act not permitted under CPC: Court

#JuhiChawla #DelhiHighCourt #5G
Stand of plaintiff in utter disregard of court fee law. Application is partially allowed. One week time granted to pay deficit court fee : Court

Plaint is not verified. Affidavit says only few para are true to their knowledge. There is no personal knowledge of averments. Plaint based on legal advise not maintainable: Court

#JuhiChawla #DelhiHighCourt #5G
Court notes that there is no denial of any right in the case.

Maintainability of declaratory relief is doubtful: Court

#JuhiChawla #DelhiHighCourt #5G
