Punjab and Haryana Court: Parties should listen to their Counsel Members

PUNJAB AND HARYANA: In the recent case of Ankush Rawat v. Guru Nanak Education Trust and Another, the Punjab and Haryana court observed that parties are bound by the statements made by their counsel in Court. The observation was made while disallowing a review application filed against an order on the ground of an ‘error apparent.

The bench held by  Justice H.S. Madaan directed that the counsel for the applicant had not been able to point out any error apparent on the face of the record and therefore, the applicant was trying to resile from the statement made by the earlier counsel and to re-argue the matter on merits, which is not permitted in law.

The court further noted that the revision petition was not pressed on merits by the counsel for the petitioner and it was stated by the counsel that he would withdraw the appeal pending before the Appellate Authority against the eviction order dated December 12, 2021. Therefore, the revision petition was disposed off on these mutually agreeable terms.

The court said, – The parties are bound by the statements made by their counsel in Court. It is not the case of the applicant that the counsel was not authorized to made the statement. Infact the only ground of review is that there is an error apparent on the record as the real facts were not put before this Court.

Therefore, the court dismissed the application for being sans merit with exemplary costs of Rs.20,000/- to be deposited with the Chandigarh Legal Aid Society.
