The Code of Civil procedure plays a crucial and determining role in expediting the
adjudication of civil disputes. A Uniform procedure was made for application of a code
of simple and uniform procedure applicable to all the courts of the Country. Procedural
law is not only handmaiden of justice but plays important role in achieving justice then
substantive law. The statement that substantive law resides in the interstices of procedure
reflects this reality. Knowledge of procedural law is an essential tool in the armory of the
legal practitioner. For a successful litigation it is necessary to face all possible challenges
of a procedural nature.
