Report No. 69

V. A Verbal Point

16.95. We may now mention a verbal point concerning section 44. While providing that a party may challenge on the ground of fraud etc., a judgment etc. which is relevant under sections 40, 41, 42, section 44 does not mention section 43 presumably because section 43 is a negative provision. But, if a new section1is added to deal with previous convictions, that section may be mentioned in section 44 also. We recommend that section 44 should be so amended.

1 See proposed section 42A.

16.96. We are also recommending the insertion of another section1 which also may be mentioned in section 44.

1. See proposed section 43A.

VI. Recommendation
