After having heard
learned counsel for the parties and after going through the final judgment and
order dt.05.02.2007 passed by the High Court of Punjab and Haryana at
Chandigarh in Regular Second Appeal No.3876 of 1997, we find that the High
Court without framing any substantial question of law allowed the Second Appeal
of the respondent under Section 100 CPC and set aside the findings of the two
courts below. In view of the decision of this Court in Gian Dass vs. Gram
Panchayat, Village Sunner Kalan and Ors., (2006) 6 SCC 271 and C.A.Sulaiman
& Ors. vs. State Bank of Travancore, Alwayee & Ors., (2006) 6 SCC 392
in which it was held that without formulating the substantial question of law,
judgment rendered by the High Court in second appeal cannot be sustained, we
set aside the impugned judgment of the High Court and remit the matter back to
the High Court to decide the same afresh on merits, after formulating a
substantial question of law, within six months from the date of communication
of this order. The appeal is allowed accordingly. There shall be no order as to
