From the perusal of record, vide order dt. 24.05.1999, the right
of defendants to file written statement was closed, as despite a number
of opportunities, they have not submitted their written statement, as
such I am of the view that in case of amendment, the pleadings are to be
amended, but in the instant case since the defendants right to file
written statement has already been struck of, therefore, the defendants
have no right to file the amended written statement. Put up the main suit
on 14 -9 -02. This application is accordingly disposed of and shall form
part of the main file.";
