Ashok Patel is residing in Nasik and Mohanlal Shah is residing in Pune. When Ashok Pael demanded the money by writing a letter on 1-10-2007, Mohanlal Shah gave a reply assuring Ashok Patel that the amount in question will be paid by him within a period of two years as he is having financial difficulties. Subsequently Ashok Patel filed a sun on 1-1-2009 for recovering the amount in the Court of Civil Judge at Nasik. Mohanlal Shah took the plea that the Nasik Court has no territorial jurisdiction to decide the suit. Mohanlal Shah filed his written statement taking the point that the suit is filed after a period of three years year’s from the dare of transaction and, therefore, it is time barred. A plea was also taken in the written statement that he has not received any amount and that he had not signed the promissory note. The trial Court framed necessary issues in the suit and found that the suit is within limitation and the Court at Nasik has also jurisdiction to entertain and ultimately decreed the suit. The said decree is challenged in appeal by the Appellant.
