• Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order  1, Rule  1 - Two Agreements were executed; one for letting out the property itself and the other by hiring the movables - Both the Agreements were for a period of three years and evidently the Hire Agreement is not independent of the Agreement of lease as its existence and tenure was dependant on the lease Agreement - Although, the Hire Agreement was separately executed, it arises out of the same transaction i.e. of leasing out the property in question in favour of the same parties - Filing of separate suits to claim the hire charges would lead to multiplicity of litigation between the parties, although common questions of facts and of law would arise, even if separate suits were brought by the respondents/plaintiff. (176) P.L.R. (Del.)
