DELHI HC: LITIGANT NEEDS TO BE VIGILANT, CAN’T PUT THE ENTIRE BLAME ON ADVOCATE TO GET DELAY CONDONED.

News Date: 27.06.2017

According to a judgment by Delhi HC, it is ruled that the litigant owes a duty to be vigilant of his rights, pursue his case diligently and cannot be permitted to cast the entire blame on the Advocate.

He is also expected to be equally vigilant about the judicial proceedings pending in the court of law initiated at his instance or against him. If the litigant does not appear in the court and leaves the case at the mercy of his counsel without caring as to what different frivolous pleas/defences being taken by his counsel for adjournments is bound to suffer.
