• Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (V of 1908) Order  6-A, Order 6, Rule 17 - Counter claim - Reading of Order 8 Rule 6-A makes it clear that there can be a final judgment in the same suit with regard to original claim and the counter claim - In common parlance, common judgment means decision arrived at simultaneously in more than one suits tried together - In view of this, a counter-claim or a set off can be made in any form of a suit but no separate cause title is required to be given to the same as the counter claim is being raised in the suit - So everything with regard to the counter claim is to be taken care of in the same very suit - No separate cause title is required to be created and the amendment under Order 6 Rule 17 CPC for giving separate cause title to the counter-claim, has been rightly rejected by learned trial court. (173) P.L.R.
