The anticipatory bail application of the said bank officials was rejected by Sessions Judge on 21.11.07. The High Court Mumbai in its order of 26.11.07 confirmed the said order of the court below vide proceedings in the matter of Jayant A. Joshi & others vs State of Maharashtra, Criminal Application no 3825 of 2007. The said officials have appealed to Supreme Court. In the hearing held on 7th December '07, the Supreme Court has asked the said officials to report to the police on 09.12.07 and interrogation is to be carried on continuously for 5 days and as and when needed thereafter. The investigation report is to be submitted to the Supreme Court on 07.01.08 for the hearing to be held on 08.01.08.

Thus a history has been made in the Judicial Management in our country. The said District Judge, Indore in his order dated 27.10.07 pertaining to MJC No 152/07 paid eloquent tribute to us for development of such system. We have prepared two DVDs, one showing the method and system for such presentation, its advantages with a practical application. Another DVD showing the actual presentation before the District Judge, Indore on 10th October 2007. we have prepared an article titled 'Computer Presentation & Video Arguments' vide click here Court Technologies IT Presentation Video Arguments Many retired Judges and Senior Advocates have appreciated this development and have desired earliest possible introduction in Indian Court Rooms. Our Clients viz Mr. Rajendra Seth, Mumbai, Mr. Shishir Jhunjhunwala, Nagpur, Mr. Sundararajan, Madurai and others viz. Mr. Narasimhan, Adv., Chennai have sent e-mails to us congratulating this epoch making development. We are thankful to them for their kind gesture.
Accounts filed by Banks/FIs in DRT must be as per law rules DRAT Mumbai:- In an important ruling in respect of our client vide Shri Radhakrishna Steel and Alloys, Appellant vs Bank of Maharashtra, Respondent, the DRAT in its order dated 28.9.07 (OA No 96/2006 of DRT Nagpur) have asked the bank to submit accounts as per law laid down by the Supreme Court in the matter of Central Bank vs Ravindra and have permitted the borrower litigant to file their WS after submission of the correct accounts. We have observed that almost in all the cases, the accounts filed by the Banks/FIs are not in accordance with law and hence such application be moved in DRT so that first correct accounts as per law are submitted before filing of WS and or Counter-claim.
Our Client settles at less than 5% of dues due to impact of counter-claim against Bank:- This is just for your information that one of our clients have settled with the bank for amount less than 5% of the total dues (nearly Rs. 17 crores) vide State Bank of Mysore vs. Akasha Textiles, OA No - 3163/2000 in DRT-II Mumbai. Such settlement could be possible because of the impact of counter-claim as may be seen from the client’s mail extract may be seen by clicking Success & Results of Counter-claims When the State Bank of India Mysore can settle for less than 5%, other banks can also do. Hence if there are wrong doings by the Banks, the borrowers must file the damages and if there is any move for settlement, it must be kept in view that the settlement should not be more than 5% otherwise it is better to contest the damage suit or counter-claim.
Important Victory of Our Client against Bank:- One of our important clients at Chandigarh who filed damage suit of Rs. 1825 crores against a public sector Bank on 13.01.05 registered an important victory on 03.03.07 when the Court waived the entire court fee of nearly Rs 180 crores despite all opposition by the defendant Bank. The alleged dues of the Bank are Rs. 30 crores. Since the damages are much more than the alleged claim of the bank, no recovery action can be executed till the said damage suit is finally decided. The usual delay in the litigation does not affect our client as the damages are increasing day by day due to interest charges at rate which is much higher than the increase in the alleged claim of the bank. The said damage suit was drafted by us and all necessary advice and guidance was provided on all dates of proceedings.
Case of Fabrikant (MFS), Fabrikant-Leer (FLI), Counter-claim or Damage Suit against lending Banks:- The said USA Corporation being one of the world's largest manufacturers and distributors of diamonds as well as an industry leader in diamond and gemstone jewelry including Gold Jewelry has intended to be restructured under USA Bankruptcy rules. As a result, several Indian as well as foreign suppliers world wide have become innocent victims being mostly unsecured creditors. We have observed that in some cases, the lending banks have committed numerous wrong doings with such suppliers. Under these facts and circumstances, the only remedy is filing counter-claims in DRTs or Damage Suits in civil courts. The possibility of redressal from the said Bankruptcy proceedings or winding up proceedings particularly for the said unsecured suppliers is extremely remote. As stated above, if there is any move for settlement, the same should not be more than 5%.
Technology in Court Rooms - Video Briefs and Video Arguments:- Application of current presentation technology can tremendously improve the quality of legal process in the court rooms including DRTs. Presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint will help the Advocates in preparing their arguments in advance. They can carry their notebook computers in the court rooms and present their arguments in better manner. Their entire arguments can be videotaped and submitted to the court in form of a CD as document. This 'Video Arguments' will be akin to 'Written Arguments'. This will help the judges to view and replay if necessary before writing the judgments. He can pause, play, replay forward, backward and thus recall of the arguments will be accurate and full which is essentially required in modern complex industrial and business litigations. The judges need not make any notes and the entire argument will be available to them at any time and due to replay facility, the judgment writing will be much easier and accurate too. Such CDs will also be helpful in appeals. With such use of the current video and presentation technology, the quality of adjudication will improve a lot. We have developed the entire technology and the same has been demonstrated to the retired judges and eminent advocates. They all have appreciated the same. This is just for information that the prisoners are being examined using the technique of video conferencing. The questions in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha may be asked by way of Electronic Presentation. In USA Supreme Court, all the arguments are video recorded and are available on internet date wise. We have been flooded with queries on this subject. The above is permissible under Sec 4 of the IT Act 2000.
We intend to prepare such presentation particularly for our clients. Those who are interested further, they may visit ' Court Tech Forum ' on internet. Many court rooms including District Courts in USA and UK are well equipped with computers, projectors and cameras and the Advocate need to carry only his CD for presentation. There are many private agencies who prepare such presentations for the advocates. We can provide such services in India.

On 9th July '07, 15,000 Judges in India have received Laptops and they have been provided with 3 months training. We have demonstrated the method and system before the District Judge, Indore on 10th Oct. '07 for the first time in the country. In his order dated 27.10.07, the said District Judge, Indore has appreciated our development. We are at the doorstep to a revolution in Judicial Management and the transition is akin to bullock cart to automobile.

Any one else desiring to have the DVDs may send through e-mail their postal address, name of the company, Details of the pending DRT case or Securitisation case and the amount involved, name of concerned person and his contact details including phone nos etc. to us.
As already announced on this page, Mr. Ram Kishan was in Chennai from 21st July 2007, Saturday AN to 22nd July Sunday '07 for the said conference. The Advocates from South India i.e. Chennai, Madurai, Hyderabad, Vishakhapatnam, Tirupati and an International consultant from Mumbai participated in the Conference and Interactive Sessions with him on the matters relating to DRT, Securitisation Act, Counter-claim etc. The sessions were held for nearly 2 hours on 21st July and for 4 hours on 22nd July '07. During these sessions, Mr. Ram Kishan using a PowerPoint Presentation dealt with all the aspects of Bank Litigations and Borrowers Defence. The participants were highly impressed and benefited from the knowledge thus gained.
Purchase of NPAs by ARCIL and Counter-claims against the sellers:- The asset reconstruction companies like ARCIL are buying NPAs from the financial institutions and banks on average price of 24% and then they will sell at higher price. On the other hand the ARCIL will contest cases in DRTs for 100% claims with future interest. Such intended recoveries and earnings are much more exorbitant than the Pathans and Village money lenders. Hence it is all the more necessary to file counter-claims against ARCIL for the wrong doings of the lenders who should also be made parties. We have full expertize to prepare such counter-claims.
Counter-claim is the only defence for the borrowers against Notice under Securitisation Act and or Original Application under the DRT Act:- Under the present provisions of law, the only legal defence for the borrowers is Counter-claim giving quantum of loss and damages suffered due to wrong doings of the lenders. The pleadings must be prepared by a person having mastery of facts and mastery of law. The documents such as project report, application for financial assistance, loan sanction letters, correspondence, balance sheets, annual reports need to be referred to properly keeping in view the law of pleadings, law of torts, law of damages, principles of natural justice, bank nationalization act, constitution of India, Administrative Law, various Supreme Court Judgments, equity and good conscience. If you are unable to get such pleadings prepared, our professional services may be utilized. With our drafting of pleadings, you get additional advantage of expert advice during course of litigation from beginning to end. Since our clients are from all parts of the country and due to our focused attention, you get up to date, complete and exhaustive guidance. All our clients are having upper hand over the lenders. In many cases the lenders have come forward to waive total interest and settle at fraction of the principal amount. In one of the cases the proposal of the lender is to waive the total claim provided the borrower withdraws the damage claim, which the borrower has declined.
Counter-claim must be prepared much in advance of the Notice under Securitisation Act or filing of the Original Application under the DRT Act:- The counter-claim or damage suit must be prepared much in advance of the recovery action initiated by the lender. The most appropriate stage is as soon as the lender declares the unit as NPA. The said counter-claim or damage suit must be ready before the lender issued Notice under Securitisation Act or files Original Application is filed by the lender in DRT. With such advance action only, the counter-claim or the damage suit will attain proper quality standards from legal considerations. As soon as the legal Notice from the lender under Securitisation or DRT Act is received the said counter-claim or damage suit is updated, mentioned in the objections and after the action u/s 13(4) included in the appeal u/s 17 of the Securitisation Act. Since prima facie there is no debt due, the lender can not take any action for the possession of the assets till the litigation pertaining to the said counter-claim or damage suit is decided by the court of law.
Winning bank litigations in DRT:- The first step is perfect pleadings drafted by a person having mastery of facts and mastery of law. The borrower must setup his counter-claim in money value based on law of damages, law of torts and banking laws, DRT Act, law of evidence, civil procedure code, principles of natural justice, constitution of India etc. In almost all the cases, the counter-claim is much more than the claim of the lender. These are the condition precedents before commencement of litigation in DRT. The next important step is thorough preparation of the case by the borrower as well as his advocate much in advance of the commencement of the trial in DRT. The borrower and his advocate must prepare at least 7 days before the date. In case the counter-claim has been drafted by us, the outcome of the said preparation must be discussed with us on phone so that our guidance is also available prior to the date. The proceedings on the date must be properly recorded in the DRT. All the relevant facts must be obtained much before the arguments and through preparation must be made. No arguments be held at any stage till all the facts are discovered. Long dates should be resisted. With proper alertness and vigilance by the borrower who must work in unison with his advocate in advance will ensure winning bank litigations in DRTs. It must be understood that the battle is long drawn, time consuming and expensive. Even after winning in DRT, the borrower and his advocate will have to work hard in facing the appeals in ADRT, High Courts and Supreme Court. If the pleadings are drafted by us, we provide all guidance from DRT to Supreme Court.

The person who is preparing the pleadings must have mastery over banking, finance and law. Since we possess this expertise, our help may be taken. (4) In almost all the cases, we have found that the loss and damages are more than the claim of the lenders, the cases must be fought properly. (5) It is observed that the lenders are unable to tender proper replies and hence they must be called to witness box and cross examination conducted till the admit the wrong doings. (6) With such approach only, one can win in DRT.
Our approach of counter-claim or damage suit against the lenders fully endorsed by authorities:- Two leading authorities in law and banking both having more than 40 years of experience in law and banking have fully endorsed our approach to counter-claim in DRTs or damage suit against the lenders in civil courts.

PIL to be filed against DRTs:- One of our Clients desires to file a PIL against the DRTs.

(2) The Ministry of Finance is calling meeting of all the POs (3) The salary and wages of the DRTs are being met with from Ministry of Finance. These factors are against the equity as the banks and FIs are one of the parties before DRTs. Will you please send the proof of all these matters personal affidavits, publication in news papers etc. to us at 205, Morya Palace, 5/1, Diamond Colony, New Palasia, Indore-452001

Supreme Court verdict in the case of Indian Bank vs ABS Marine:- The Supreme Court of India has upheld the right of the borrowers to file countersuit or damage suit against the lender in civil court or DRT. In almost all the cases, the damage claim of the borrower is much bigger than the lender, the execution of the claim of the lender will have to wait till the said suit in civil court or DRT is fully decided. The said counter-claim can also be adjudicated upon in DRT. if on account of any reason, if it is transferred from DRT to Civil Court or vice-versa, the position in respect of the execution of the lender's claim will remain the same. We have been upholding these views since 2001 as laid down in this web site since then as well as in our articles and letters to editor published in the Financial Express since 2001. As a whole, the principles of equity, justice and good conscience continue to remain applicable in any court whether it is DRT or Civil Court. Since at present the judicial process is expensive and long drawn, such cases can only be fought by the borrowers who can mobilize financial resources to fight court battle and due to such litigants only leading judgments will come, which will be useful to other suffering borrowers and guarantors.
Justice is Supreme. Procedures, Provisions of Law and Machinery of Law have to aim at getting Justice :- In a democratic society like ours which is ruled by Law, the Supreme Court of India has held that Justice is Supreme. Even the law bends before Justice. The procedures are handmaid of Justice. The natural corollary is that the complete court machinery like Civil Courts, DRTs, High Courts and Supreme Court including their Judges exit and have to work only achieving Justice in each and every case in most efficient manner. The established judicial process is quite strong provided it is implemented properly. First stage is the pleadings which should be drawn by the person having mastery of facts and mastery of law. In the specific legal defence of the borrowers and guarantors in DRTs, the pleadings must contain the counter-claim. Then the erring bank authorities including Chairman of the bank should be cross examined in the witness box again by a competent person having mastery of facts and mastery of law. If such process is followed, in almost all the cases the banks will lose and instead of recovery of their claims, they will have to pay the damages.
Proof by Affidavit in DRT is not sufficient in most of the cases where it calls for examination of Bank Officials :- In almost all the cases of our clients, we have observed that the affidavits filed by the bank officials do not offer complete proof. Hence the said bank officials including the Chairman and the Branch Managers need to be examined and cross-examined in the witness box. The defendants must be vigilant and careful to ask for the same. The cross examination of the bank officials must be carried out by a person having mastery of facts and mastery of law. The entire cross examination of the bank officials must be video taped and submitted as document in form of the CD. Then only the defendants can be sure to win their cases including the counter-claims. We offer our professional services in conducting such cross-examination.
Affidavit on behalf of the Bank must be signed by the Chairman:- The Branch Manager and other officials of the Bank may submit affidavit on their behalf but the affidavit on behalf of the Bank must be signed by the Chairman of the Bank.
Good News for the Borrowers and Guarantors:- On account of the counter-claims and better preparations of the Borrowers and Guarantors, the bankers are more inclined for settlements at very low offers. Please find out the lowest offers and then settle carefully with consent decrees. Wherever settlement is not possible, there is no other options but to follow our approach elaborated in this web site.
NPA, Debt due and Rehabilitation of Sick SME Industries:- At present there is gross mistake in calculation of NPA and Debt due and accordingly the Rehabilitation Plans of the potentially viable sick industries are also wrong. Our suggestions and the only correct solution for rehabilitation of sick SME Industries is contained in a article which can be seen by click here at NPA, Debt due, Rehabilitation of Sick SME Industries We have NPA Consultants to offer NPA Consultancy.
Affidavits for our clients:- Few of our clients have started approaching us to prepare their affidavits as they find that their advocates are not having required spare time for such technical job. You may also approach us for this specialized service.
Cross Examination of Bank Officials:- Many of our clients find that their advocates are not having sufficient knowledge to cross examine the bank officials like Bank Managers and Chairmen of the banks and financial institutions and approached us for such highly specialized service. In fact we are uniquely suited for the same due to our focused and specialized knowledge and experience in this field.
Borrowers and Gurarantors can win in their bank litigations:- In most of the cases, we have found that if the counter-claim has been framed properly by a person having mastery of banking facts and mastery of banking laws and then the bank officials are properly cross-examined in the witness box so that they admit their wrong doings, the litigating borrowers and guarantors can win their cases. Most of our clients are moving in this direction. As a whole you may approach us for all DRT Problems and Solutions. Solution to any problem of debtrecovery in DRT is our specialization particularly for the defence of the borrowers and guarantors.
Counter-claim can be filed at any stage:- We have prepared counter-claim even during winding up of the companies, after the final order of the DRT or at any stage of the trials in DRTs or ADRTs. There is no hitch of limitation. In one of the cases, we have filed counter-claim after 21 years of filing of the WS. We need one and half to two months time for preparation of counter-claim. If there is no such time available, we devise legal methods to gain time. Goal of any litigation or legal procedure is attainment of Justice. We help the borrowers and guarantors to get Justice at any stage of litigation.
Importance and Essentiality of proper defence for borrowers and guarantors:- Whole case can be fought and won only when proper defence has been made right from the beginning. Such defence should be made by person having mastery of facts and mastery of law. Here facts refer to those applicable to the individual case with thorough understanding of banking, business and industrial finance and their violations as well estimate of loss and damages based on project report and balance sheets. The law refers to all the relevant laws applicable to banking and finance right from 1949 as well as law of torts and damages. We are acclaimed expert and specialized agency to prepare such defence with uptodate current knowledge due to handling of such matters from clients all over the country. A phone call will help you in solving all problems relating to DRT, ADRT, BIFR, NCLT, Securitisation Act etc. Solution to any problem of debtrecovery in DRT is our specialization particularly for the defence of the borrowers and guarantors.
Cross-examination of bank officials:- Evidence and cross-examination of bank officials including the Chairman and Branch Manger is highly essential. The sole aim is to get admissions of the wrong doings. Once the wrong doings have been admitted in the witness box by the bank officials, the borrower/guarantor has won the case as there is no arguments on admissions even upto the stage of Supreme Court. Such cross-examination of bank officials is highly technical and it requires mastery of facts and mastery of law. We have requisite expertise in this arena. The parties desiring us to conduct the cross-examination, may contact us on phone for necessary further action.
Supreme Court Judgments:- Many of our clients and visitors of this site approach us for Supreme Court and High Court Judgments. We would like to inform them that judgments are available only on those matters and facts which have been adjudicated upon. Many of the issues relating to industrial and business finance have not yet been brought before the judiciary and hence no judgments will be available on the same. The counter-claims based on the law of torts drafted by us are being put before the judiciary for the first time. These matters and facts need to be processed during proper judicial process by way of proper pleadings, cross examination and arguments. The judgments thus obtained will go through the process of appeal by the affected party and thus all such cases will take few years to come before the Supreme Court and then only the final judgments of the Supreme Court will come. Till then we have to work on the basis of the fundamental of the law. We are following this approach in tackling all DRT problems and Solutions whether in DRT, ADRT, High Courts, BIFR, NCLT in future and Supreme Court.

The said client registered an important victory on 03.03.07 when the Court waived the entire court fee despite all opposition by the defendant Bank. The alleged dues of the Bank are Rs. 30 crores. Since the damages are much more than the alleged claim of the bank, no recovery action can be executed till the said damage suit is finally decided. The usual delay in the litigation does not affect our client as the damages are increasing day by day due to interest charges at rate which is much higher than the increase in the alleged claim of the bank. The said damage suit was drafted by us and all necessary advice and guidance was provided on all dates of proceedings.

Highlights 0f Our Approach and Synopsis of this Web Site
The highlights of our approach and synopsis of this web site are given below. For further details, the visitors are requested to study contents of various other pages of this web site :-
Highlights of our approach :- (1) The bureaucracy in banks and financial institutions always commits mistakes and legal wrong doings in normal banking as well as in DRT. With our experience of nearly 15 years of dealing with bank and DRT litigations, we locate these wrongdoings and prepare countersuit or DRT counterclaim to be filed against the banks in DRT or civil court. Since such DRT counterclaims by the borrowers and guarantors are much more than the alleged dues claimed in DRT, legally there is no debt due and hence no recovery action under DRT Act or Securitisation Act can be indulged or enforced. During the process of litigation in DRT, the banks are made to admit their wrong doings and hence the discretion of the judge of DRT is avoided. Use of the law of torts greatly widens the scope of the damages in DRTs. For further details, please visit various pages of this web site dealing in various aspects of DRT litigations. (2) In respect of notice under Securitisation Act, the best legal defence again is Damage Suit or DRT counterclaim as the case may be. (3) Legal Opinion:- Parties may send copies of documents along with their queries at the address given at the bottom of this page. For any clarifications, they may contact us at our phone nos. given above. (4) For DRT Counterclaims filed by our clients against public sector banks in DRTs vide details on the page - DRT Cases Handled by Us (5) The NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal Act has come into existence. The pending cases in BIFR and winding up cases in the High Courts will be transferred to the said tribunal. We have expertise to handle such cases also. All legal matters relating to Debt Recovery Tribunal i.e. DRT and NPA Consultancy are dealt by us with definite relief to the Borrowers and Guarantors. It would be a great help to your DRT advocate. As a whole you may approach us for all DRT Problems and Solutions. Solution to any problem of debtrecovery in DRT is our specialization particularly for the defence of the borrowers and guarantors.
Synopsis:- Law of Torts is our specialization. For the first time in India we have applied this law in DRT cases. DRT Counterclaim is the only defence in DRT cases including Notices under Securitisation Act. The banks always and in all DRT cases commit legal violations forming basis of such DRT counterclaims. Even in case of DRT suit filed accounts, the DRT counterclaim can be raised. Further, the application of law of torts alone offers full scope. This law is fully applicable in our country, We update the site monthly on every first Monday of a month or any other day for special release with latest and useful materials specially relating to DRTs. A visit once a month will be highly beneficial to you. For the convenience of the regular visitors, we have added a page - Update after last Release. On account of our specialized DRT knowledge and DRT practice for more than 20 years, with our exhaustive DRT legal opinion you need not be afraid of DRT or Securitisation Act or NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal or BIFR. You may even speak to us to solve all DRT problems of borrowers, guarantors and their assets. We also prepare usual DRT written statements including DRT counterclaims in DRT cases apart from dealing in all DRT matters. We have clients from all over the country from various Debt Recovery Tribunals i.e. DRTs. As a whole you may approach us for all DRT Problems and Solutions. Solution to any problem of debtrecovery in DRT is our specialization particularly for the defence of the borrowers and guarantors.
Settlements and undue delays :- Many parties desire settlements. In almost all such cases, the bankers are unable to decide or ask the party to deposit some amount. The party loses such amount and ever increasing interest bring them to the amount from where the negotiation started. Under such situation, there is no other legal solution but to file proper damage suit against the bank in DRT. If the DRT court fee is a problem, declaratory and injunction suit may be filed. We can draft such suits and damage suits. In case of undue delays by the banks, similar action is the only legal solution. as a whole you may approach us for DRT Problems and Solutions. Solution to any problem of debtrecovery in DRT is our specialization particularly for the defence of the borrowers and guarantors.
Consequences of not safeguarding your interest :- With coercive legislations like Securitisation Act, summary courts like DRT i.e. Debt Recovery Tribunal and unified courts like NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal, recovery adjudications and executions will be faster. Even properties may be sold off at throw away prices. The lenders will proceed through DRTs for further recoveries for balance amount (with interest) against the borrower and guarantors. In some cases, the borrowers are being arrested. Proper and timely DRT defence in form of DRT counterclaim alone can check this process. As the lenders are taking legal actions to protect their interests, you are fully justified in saving yourself with the tool of law. On account of our expertise and specialization, our drafting of DRT counterclaim and DRT legal opinions are of highest quality. In special cases, our help in arguments in DRT and NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal and as a whole DRT Problems and Solutionswill be highly beneficial. Any delay in not coming to us endangers your property and creates problems to you and your next generation.
NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal:- The NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal is expected to commence its operations in the country any time no sooner the judges are posted. Most of the medium and large scale industries facing legal recoveries and under rehabilitation are having stay orders from BIFR will get the said stay vacated from the respective NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal. The NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal will have much wider coverage than the BIFR. The NCLTs i.e. National Company Law Tribunals in addition will deal with winding up cases also. The adjudications in NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal and respective DRT will ultimately evolve leading judgments on industrial litigations in India. The material facts including counterclaim established in DRT will be the deciding factors in the respective NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal. The DRT lawyers will find new avenues for practice in the respective NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal. On account of our specialization in this particular field and long experience in Industrial Litigation equips us better to prepare suitable defence, guidance and advice in the matters to be dealt in DRT and respective NCLT i.e. National Company Law Tribunal and as a whole DRT Problems and Solutions.
BIFR Cases and Counter-claims: - Most of the BIFR cases are under stay till the NCLTs become active. During this period, the BIFR litigants must review their WS and if they have not quantified their loss and damages, they must prepare amendments to WS incorporating all elements of damages based on project reports and balance sheets. BIFR stay is a golden opportunity to evolve the strong defence of counter-claim. Many BIFR parties are in touch with us. We welcome such BIFR matters. The parties can interact with us on all implications of the BIFR litigations. The things will not be much different in NCLT. It is a modified version of BIFR. The constitution and working is similar to BIFR. Since we need minimum period of two months to prepare counter-claims, the BIFR parties must approach sufficient time in advance.

Application of Law of Torts in claiming Damages from Municipal Corporations for demolition of structures, closure of shops etc:- In many parts of the country, the Municipal Corporations are demolishing structures like shops and houses which existed for number of years. The shops existing for number of years are proposed to be shut down. The affected persons should claim Damages under the Law of Torts, which would be substantial. It is learnt that in Delhi itself about 5 lac shops are to be closed down and about 25 lac persons would be out of jobs. All these persons should file damage suits in the civil court. Since the damages would be substantial, the suits may be filed as Indigent Persons. Since the damages would attract interest, the usual delay by the civil courts will not affect the final outcome. The affected shop owners may discuss the details with us on phone.
