Civil Procedure Code Jurisdiction


Jurisdiction of civil courts can be divided on two basis.


Pecuniary/ Monetary Jurisdiction

Pecuniary jurisdiction of the court divides the court on a vertical basis.

At present the pecuniary jurisdiction of the Delhi courts is as follows:

1.      Suits amounting to Rs.1 - Rs.20, 00,000 lie before district courts.

2.      Suits over and above Rs. 20,00,000/- lie before High Courts.

  • It is very important to note that the amount of pecuniary jurisdiction is different for all High Courts. This limit is decided by respective High Court Rules.

  • In many states High court has no pecuniary jurisdiction. All civil suits go before District Courts, and only appeal lies before High Court.

Territorial Jurisdiction

Territorial Jurisdiction divides the courts on a horizontal basis.
