Civil Procedure Code Jurisdiction
For example in Delhi,
there are three District level courts, viz. Patiala
House, Tis Hazari and Karakardooma. All these courts have nearly same powers.
However, being on a same horizontal line, these courts are divided territory
wise, i.e. area wise. Again for example, cases pertaining to South
Delhi, New Delhi and West
Delhi will lie before Patiala House, and
North Delhi cases will lie before Tis
Hazari, and cases pertaining to East Delhi
will lie before Karakardooma.
