Kuldip Singh, J. (Oral)

Respondent duly served by way of affixation but has not

appeared despite service. He is proceeded against ex-parte.

Petitioner seeks transfer of two cases between the parties from

Amritsar Court to Fatehgarh Sahib. First case is under Section 25 of the

Guardian and Wards Act, 1890 filed by the petitioner titled as Mrs.Hargeet

Kaur vs. Mr.Bakhtawar Singh Dhillon and the second case is Civil Suit

No.3003 of 2017 titled as Hargeet Kaur vs. Bakhtawar Singh Dhillon

pending in the Court of learned Civil Judge (Senior Division), Amritsar.

Admittedly, child of the parties is living with the father at

Amritsar. In view of Section 9 of Guardian and Wards Act, 1890,

jurisdiction is at a place where the child is residing. Since, the child is

living with the father in Amritsar, Amritsar Courts has got the jurisdiction

and keeping in view the convenience of the minor child, there is no ground

to transfer the case from Amritsar Courts to Fatehgarh Sahib Courts. It is to

be added here that the petitioner herself has chosen the jurisdiction of

Amritsar Courts by filing the case at Amritsar Courts.

Second case is a Civil Suit filed by the petitioner regarding

some property dispute with the husband. Property is situated at Amritsar.

Since, one case between the parties is already pending at Amritsar Courts,

the plaintiff, who herself has decided to file the second suit at Amritsar

Courts, can contest the same at Amritsar.

As such there are no grounds to transfer these two cases from

Amritsar Courts to Fatehgarh Sahib Courts.

Resultantly, the present trasnfer petition stands dismissed.
