Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur v. Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) and Ors.




Pleadings allowed to be amended when 'petition ripe for hearing'

The Court allowed an amendment of pleadings requiring a determination of jurisdiction by the court. The Court questioned whether the amendment was necessary for the determination of the dispute or if it added a new issue for adjudication. It concluded that there could not be any impediment in the determination of territorial jurisdiction as a preliminary issue.
