1. Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 12, Rule  4 - Suit for Declaration - Contention that provisions cannot be invoked before filing the written statement - It would be probably appropriate that if the written statement is also filed and when issues are framed, any party may apply to a court under Order 12 Rule 4 CPC to cause admissions to be made and obviate the scope of proving matters which are admitted and thereby saving time and expenses for both the court and the parties for proving matters which are admitted.  (179) P.L.R.

  3. Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 12, Rule  6 - "may" and "make such order" - Power is discretionary - It is an enabling provision which confers discretion on the Court in delivering a quick judgment on admission and to the extent of the claim. (S.C.)(180) P.L.R.
  4. Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 12, Rule  6 - Appellant-defendant also filed the Suit for Specific Performance, which of course is contested by the respondent-landlord - When such issues arising between the parties ought to be decided, mere admission of relationship of landlord and tenant cannot be said to be an unequivocal admission to decree the suit under Order XII Rule 6 CPC.

  5. Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 12, Rule  6 - Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (26 of 1996) - Proceedings - Learned single Judge, in our view, has rightly held that the principles analogues to Order XII Rule 6 CPC are equally applicable to arbitration proceedings.

  6. Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 12, Rule  6 - Confers wide discretion on the Court to pass judgment either at the stage of the suit on the basis of admission of the facts made in the pleadings or otherwise, but the Court shall later on decide the other questions which arise for consideration in the Suit.  (S.C.)(180) P.L.R.

  8. Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order 12, Rule  6 - Industrial Relocation Scheme 1996 - Because there is no clear and unequivocal admission of a proper allotment of industrial plot, as there was only a recommendation - In fact, there was no actual allotment of an industrial plot in favour of appellant/plaintiff - It is apparent from the statement of aforesaid B.L. that the recommendation was not forwarded to the concerned department - In such a situation, decreeing of suit on the basis of statement of an official of respondent-department recorded under Order 10 of CPC would not justify decreeing the suit by invoking the provisions of Order 12 Rule 6 CPC. (177) P.L.R. (Del.)
  9.
