2017 - A.P.DIGEST - JUNE 2

Or.39, rule 1 and 2 C.P.C. - granting interim injunction against sub registrar who is not a party to the suit - No interim injunction exparte can be granted against third party to the suit-
Even in Shyamali Das v. Illa Chowdary and Others
(6th supra), the Apex Court made it clear that the injunction cannot
be granted against the person who is not a party to the proceedings,
but the Tribunal observed that in the utmost necessity the court can
grant an interim order even before impleading the person against
whom the interim order is sought for.   It is not the law declared by
the Apex court, but it is an observation made by the Tribunal.  Even
otherwise, it is for the court to record reasons that there is an utmost
necessity to grant an interim injunction, before impleading a person
against whom the interim order was sought for. But here the order is
bereft of any reasons to conclude that there is utmost necessity.  Even
the order is silent that in view of utmost necessity the interim order is
granted, the Tribunal is not expected to pass such an order based on
stray observation in the judgment of the Apex Court without
recording reasons that there is an eminent or utmost necessity to
grant an interim order restraining the Sub-Registrar-I from registering
the document during pendency of the suit.
In the present case, an ex parte
interim order is passed against Government or public officer, who is
not a party to the suit by then, without recording reasons as required
under Rule 3 of Order XXXIX of CPC, without issuing show cause
notice as required under Section 80(2) CPC and beyond relief claimed
in the suit.  Therefore, the order under challenge in I.A.743 of 2012 is
clearly vitiated by illegalities and therefore liable to be set aside.
