On 3rd Nov 2013, the plaintiff met with defendant and asked him to execute sale but defendant ignored his request. Plaintiff also came to know that there is a litigation between defendant and his brother in Revenue Court, in which brother of defendant has challenged mutation of disputed land in the name of defendant. Finally litigation ended in August 2016 in favour of defendant. The plaintiff asked the defendant to execute sale deed in his favour but defendant refused to do so.

He has further submitted that plaintiff had contacted to the defendant in month of Oct 2013 or On 3rd Nov 2013 and asked him to execute sale deed and receive balance amount but defendant did not pay any heed to the request of plaintiff. In fact, the plaintiff had no money as he had never served any notice to defendant. Dispute relating to mutation is not concerned with the plaintiff. The disputed land was in name of defendant and he was ready to perform his part of contract but plaintiff had no money with him. In fact, the defendant had contacted the plaintiff on 23rd Nov 2013 and asked him to get registered sale deed in his favour after payment of remaining sale consideration whereas plaintiff said to defendant that value of properties are decreasing. He suffered losses in a deal of land with someone Mr. Anil Singh, and he has no money to pay. As far as concern to the mutation proceedings, it was started on the instance of plaintiff as he had instigated his brother and help him to file frivolous litigation against him which ultimately ended in his favour. Plaintiff had sent a notice dated Dec, 2016 which was duly replied by his counsel. The defendant has also submitted that he has no knowledge that whether plaintiff was present in the office of registrar or not on 28 Dec 2016. However, it is made clear that plaintiff had no money or he was not interested to get registered sale deed till Jan 2014. He has prayed that Plaintiff is not entitled to any relief. Suit is time barred and is liable to be dismissed with exemplary cost.

Plaintiff’s Evidence

[1] Plaintiff filed documents Ex.P-1 to Ex-P-7 which are certified copies of Khasra Panchsala to support their case in which name of defendant has been recorded as owner. He also filed original agreement to sale and defendant admitted his signature on it. He also has filed notice dated Dec. 2016 and reitriated its contents.

[2] PW-2 is witness of agreement to sale who deposed that agreement to sale was written in his presence and parties to the agreement and he had signed the same. Plaintiff had given a cheque for sum of Rs. 20 lac’s to defendant. Plaintiff had also filed his bank account pass book which shows that the plaintiff had sufficient money in his account at relevant time.

[3] He has filed certified copy of the register maintained at Registrar office which shows that plaintiff was present at Registrar office on 28/12/2016. He has also filed certified copies of mutation proceedings which reveal that the brother of defendant had filed appeal against mutation. It is also reveals by documents that mutation order in favour of defendant was in Exparte order.

[5] He has also admitted that he did not send any notice before Dec, 2016, but he explained that he came to know about dispute between defendant and his brother on 5/11/2013 as he had not sent notice and sent only after ended the litigation. Defendant’s Evidence:- Defendant entered in to witness box and in his examination in chief, he has supported his case. He has not filed any documents.

He also has admitted that there was a litigation pending in Tehsil between him and his brother and he also admitted litigation was pending before the date of execution of sale deed in favour of plaintiff. He has also admitted that plaintiff is not known to his brother. In cross examination he admitted that on 23/11/2013 plaintiff was out of station. He also admitted that land price had risen almost twice but denied that it is the reason to not execute sale deed by him.

Arguments of Plaintiff

Plaintiff was always willing and ready to perform his part. He has argued that he had made maximum part of consideration then why he will not pay rest of the amount. Moreover, his bank account proves that plaintiff had sufficient money to pay. As per contract, in case of any litigation then time mentioned in agreement will not be essence of contract. As the defendant was in litigation with his brother and as per contract after ending of litigation in favour of defendant, he had served notice to defendant within six month. He had served notice and warranted defendant to execute the sale deed, He was also waiting at Registrar office but defendant did not come to execute sale deed. He had done his best but escalation of price made the defendant’s intention dishonest. Neither suit is barred by limitation nor defendant be permitted to refute the agreement to sale.

Arguments of Defendant

Plaintiff was never given any notice within stipulated period of contract. Time was the essence of the contract. Suit is barred by limitation. It is further argued that agreement to sale makes a provision that in case of the defendant will not execute sale deed in favour of plaintiff then he will return Rs. 25 lac’s to the plaintiff, therefore, defendant cannot be compel to execute sale deed.
