The Subject Matter Petition:
The Subject Matter CM Main under Article 227 of Constitution of India was filed
against Order dated 25.09.2021 passed by Ld. ADJ, South District , Saket Courts,
New Delhi in CS (Comm) No. 184 of 2020 where by Application of the
Petitioners/Defendants under Order 7 Rule 11 CPC was dismissed.
The Non Appealable Order:
Order 43 of CPC provides the list of orders which are Appealable in nature.
Orders passed under Order 7 Rule 11 CPC , rejecting the same, does not fall into
that category. Hence it is non Appealable Order.
Availability Of Appellate Remedy Against Such Non Appealable Orders Under Commercial Court Actn 2015:
As per Section 13 of Commercial Court Act 2015, no Appeal can be filed against
such orders which are non appealable in view of Order 43 CPC. Hence Order passed
under 7 Rule 11 CPC, rejecting the same, Appellate remedy is not available. Now
the question was this, whether such orders are Appealable under Article 227 of
constitution of India or not?
The Maintainability Of Subject Matter Petition Under Article 227 Of Constitution Of India:

Article 227 of Constitution of India was required to be decided.
The Finding Of Hon'ble Court:
The term used Petition in Section 8 of the Commercial Court Act 2015 is not and
could not have been with reference to a petition under Article 227 of the
Remedy under Article 227 , being a Constitutional Remedy, could not be affected
by a statute framed by a legislature which was itself a creature of
A creature of the Constitution of India cannot act in negation of the provisions
of the Constitution of India.
The Statute created by Legislature can not limit the Revisional Right of High
Court granted under Article 227 of Constitution of India.
The term Revision Petition used in Section 8 of Commercial Court Act 2015 is
applicable to Section 115 of CPC and not Article 227 of Constitution of India.
The curtailment of revisional jurisdiction of the High Court did not take away
and could not have taken away the constitutional jurisdiction of the High Court
to issue a writ of certiorari to a civil court.
Even power of superintendence conferred on the High Court under Article 227 of
the Constitution remain unaffected by Section 8 or 13 of the Commercial Court
Thus a Person aggrieved can assail the Order of a district court , rejecting
application under Order 7 Rule 11 CPC by filing Civil Misc. Main Petition before
the Hon'ble High Court of Delhi under Article 227 of Constitution of India.
