Report No. 27

Order XXI, rule 2 (1)

Under the Madras Amendment, any party to the suit can certify and get recorded a payment or adjustment. Further a person who has become a surety as well as the legal representatives of the judgment-debtor are also brought under this rule by the Madras Amendment. These amendments have been considered, but it is felt that it is unnecessary to adopt them. So far as sureties are concerned, even now they fall under the rule1. So far as legal representatives are concerned, section 146 is adequate.

No change is therefore proposed, on these points.

Order XXI, rule 2(1)-which decree:

1. A question which has arisen under rule 2(1) is-do the words "decree of any kind" apply to all decrees, or only to decrees under which money is payable? Some High Courts hold that they apply to all decrees1-2-3.

2. But the High Courts of Madras and Andhra Pradesh hold that they are confined to decrees under which money is payable4-5-6.

For the history of the provision, see the undermentioned cases7-8.

3. It is considered that the provision should apply to all decrees. Necessary clarification is proposed.
