Limitation Act

Article 120-Plaintiff is not Bound to Institute a Suit for declaration

Article 120 – Plaintiff is not bound to institute a suit for declaration that the records of right of the suit land are wrong. When an invasion on the rights of a person is made on the basis of the wrong records of right he can file a suit for declaration of title and that suit,if brought within 6  years from the date of such invasion, is well within time. The argument that this suit being filed within 6 years from the date of alleged threatened invasion on plaintiff’s right on the basis of of wrong entry of the suit land in records of right is well within time is not acceptable at all.  67 DLR(AD) (2015) 243
