5. Procedure in case of difference as to necessity or amount of fee.—
When any difference arises between the officer whose duty it is to see that any fee is paid under this Chapter and any suitor or attorney, as to the necessity of paying a fee or the amount thereof, the question shall, when the difference arises in any of said High Courts, be referred to the taxing-officer, whose decision thereon shall be final, except when the question is, in his opinion, one of general importance, in which case he shall refer it to the final decision of the Chief Justice of such High Court, or of such Judge of the High Court as the Chief Justice shall appoint either generally or specially in this behalf.
When any such difference arises in any of the said Courts of Small Causes, the question shall be referred to the Clerk of the Court, whose decision thereon shall be final, shall refer it to the final decision of the first Judge of such Court.
It has been held that under section 5 the order or judgement of the Taxing Judge is final and not appeal is maintainable against such an order or judgement. S.Rm. Ar. S.Sp. Sathappa Chettiar vs S.Rm. Ar. Rm. Ramanathan Chettiar AIR 1958 SC 245.
