Agha Qasim Shah

(1.) THE High Court Rules prescribe a period of 90 days for filing a revision in the High Court. The limitation Act. by Art. 181 prescribes
three years period for filing a revision,
(2.) THE argument of the learned counsel for the petitioner is that he bonafide believed that the period applicable was three years, as he
was of the opinion, that in view of Section 122 C. P. C. the High court
was not competent to prescribe a shorter period. He has no doubt, missed
the source of authority under which the High court has acted in framing
its Rules and prescribed a special period of limitation. But taking
over -all view of the matter, the mistake can reasonably be styled as
bonafide. I, therefore allow this application, and condone the delay in
filing the revision petition on payment of Rs. 25/ - as costs. The costs
shall be paid within two weeks. The application shall be filed.;
