Report No. 140
4.4. A case from Karnataka.-
A Karnataka case,1 though it seems to have arisen before the amendment of 1976, is also worth noting. The case related to a suit for the recovery of money. An ex parte decree was passed on the basis of a summons sent by post under Order V, rule 10 of the Code (as amended in Mysore), which permitted service by registered post in certain circumstances.2
