Supreme Court reiterates suit to commence De Novo after return of plaint under order VII Rule 10 and 10a of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908

By decision dated 5 August 2020 in M/s EXL Careers & Anr. vs. Frankfinn Aviation Services (P) Ltd. (CA No. 2904 of 2020), a three judge bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court resolved conflicting views in two of its earlier division bench judgments - ONGC vs. Modern Construction & Company(2014)1SCC648 (‘ONGC’) and Joginder Tuli vs. S. L. Bhatia (1997) 1 SCC 502 (‘Joginder Tuli’). It approved ONGC and held that a suit filed in a court having jurisdiction after the return of plaint under Order VII Rule 10, Civil Procedure Code, 1908 (‘CPC’) is to be treated as a fresh filing and Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. vs. Tejparas Associates and Exports Pvt. Ltd. (2019) 9 SCC 435 (‘Oriental Insurance’) was overruled.
