2020 APEX COURT [41 ]- When the issue before the High Court was the correctness of the ad-interim injunction granted and nothing more. Then the High Court at this stage clearly can not exceed its jurisdiction and strike out the plaint.
The appellant, who is the plaintiff, filed a suit for permanent injunction claiming title on the basis of the registered sale deed. An order of ad-interim injunction was passed in his favour under Order 39 Rule 1 while issuing notice. The respondent thereafter filed his written statement also. A civil revision was preferred by the respondent against the grant of injunction. The respondent did not prefer any application under Order 7 Rule 11 before the trial court for striking off the plaint. The High Court instead of examining the correctness of the order granting ad-interim injunction exceeded its jurisdiction in the civil revision and struck off the plaint itself.
