• Company Law Board Regulations 1991, Regulation 44 - `Due diligence' is a well-known connotation of prudence which enables the Court to prevent the abuse of its process - Even if this expression is not imprinted as a letter of law, it is inseparably inbuilt in the inherent powers of every Court or a Tribunal - This rule of caution must, therefore, be read into Regulation 44 of the 1991 Regulations also. (174) P.L.R. 
  • Company Law Board Regulations 1991, Regulation 44 - Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 6, Rule 17 - Amendment of Company - Petition - Question of whether or not the strict provisions of CPC applied to the proceedings before CLB,  need not be gone into - All procedural laws including CPC are harbingers of fair play in action even in judicial approach - They are designed to facilitate justice and further its ends - Procedural laws do not create any impediment or obstruction in the administration of justice - They are known as "the hand-maid of justice and not its mistress" - The avowed object of the procedural laws is to aid and deliver substantial justice to the parties - They cannot be used to derail the plain and effective justice as the very purpose of enacting procedural laws is to advance the cause of justice. (174) P.L.R.
