HC Deb 11 March 1929 vol 226 cc805-6W

asked the Under-secretary of State for India the minimum amount at stake in civil litigation in India which is held to justify an appeal to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council; the approximate date at which such minimum was fixed; and whether any increase in such amount is contemplated to correspond with the decline in postwar currency values?


A suit to be appealable to His Majesty in Council must ordinarily involve a value of not less than Rs. 10,000. This figure was first fixed at least as early as 1838. Its revision is not at present under consideration.
