Judgments of Supreme Court of India and High Courts

Bharat Sharma vs Krishan Kumar And Another on 23 September, 2019

127 RA-CR-86-2019 in


Present: Petitioner-Bharat Sharma in person.

Mr.Sherry K.Singla, Advocate
for the applicant-respondents.

The present application has been filed for recalling of the order

dated 08.05.2019 to the extent vide which the matter was ordered to be

transferred to the Court of Civil Judge (Sr.Division), Rupnagar (Guardian


As per the facts on record, the petitioner had himself filed an

application for transferring the said case from the Court of Guardian Judge-

cum-District Judge, Rupnagar to the Court of Additional Civil Judge

(Sr.Division) Anandpur Sahib on 13.02.2019. However, the Court

transferred the proceedings from the Court of Civil Judge (Sr.Division)

Rupnagar to the Court of Additional Civil Judge (Sr.Division) Nangal

instead of Anandpur Sahib on the ground that it would be convenient for the

parties to pursue the case at Nangal and even the minor child is also living at

Village Bainspur, Tehsil Nangal, District Rupnagar. Therefore, the

argument of the petitioner, who is present in Court that the case should be

retained at Rupnagar, has no merit. In case the proceedings are ordered to

be retained at Rupnagar, the applicant, who is 70 years old and the minor

child will have to travel at the distance of 70-80 kms from the place of their

residence. Besides the fact that order dated 08.05.2019 was an ex parte

order, a direction for transferring the matter to the Court of learned Civil

Judge (Senior Divison), Rupnagar (Guardian Judge) was passed under the

assumption that the Guardian Judge is at Rupnagar, whereas, the Court of

Additional Civil Judge (Sr.Division) Nangal, too has the jurisdiction to try

the said case.

At this stage, the petitioner submitted that as per the order dated

29.05.2019, there was no mention regarding conferring of powers on

Additional Civil Judge (Sr.Division) posted at Sub Divisional Levels,

whereas learned counsel for the respondents has placed on record a copy of

the Notification, dated 11.06.1996, empowering the Civil Judges

(Sr.Division) in each of the Districts in Punjab, Haryana and UT,

Chandigarh to dispose of any proceedings under the Guardian and Ward

Act, 1890, transferred to him by the District Judge of the same district.

In view of the above, the application is allowed and the order

dated 29.05.2019 is set aside to the extent vide which the matter was

transferred to the Court of Civil Judge (Sr.Division) Rupnagar back to the

Court of Additional Civil Judge (Sr.Division) Nangal to proceed further.
