Report No. 86
6.11. Bombay view.-
According to Bombay view,1 for example, the terminus a quo for making an application under section 3 arises after an application requesting the Court to direct a sale is made under section 2. The confirmation of the sale would be the last point of time before which an application could be made under section 3. However, the Court must be circumspect in granting the request under section 3, because once a sale is ordered, equities arise in favour of third parties. It has also been pointed out in Calcutta2 that section 3 does not contain any restrictive words such as "before the Court makes an order under section 2".
