Report No. 15
This clause deals with the jurisdiction of Indian courts.1
If, on applying this clause, an Indian court is found to have jurisdiction, then the question-"which Indian court has jurisdiction" will have to be decided under a separate clause2.
Placing.-It is considered that the clause under discussion should be placed in the same Chapter as deals with the internal jurisdiction of district courts. Hence it has been placed here.
