Artha Rin Adalat Ain (VIII of 2003)
Section 19(2)
When facts are intentionally misrepresented or where a false statement is made intentionally, with the knowledge that it is false, with a view to deceive the other party, it is known as fraud. In the present case, it is clear that the respondents had knowledge of the ex-parte decree at least in the year of 2009, which is clearly suppression of facts and amounts to committing fraud upon the Court. ...... (44)
Limitation Act (IX of 1908)
Section 3
Section 3 of the Act, which confers a duty upon the Court to see as to whether the suit/application is filed within time or not even if the issue of limitation has not been pressed, the Court is legally bound to see and decide such issue in disposing of the matter before it. .. .... (35)
Limitation Act (IX of 1908)
Section 5
Under a special law where a time limit has been given to file an appeal, the provision of  Section 5 of Act will not apply and the Artha Rin Adalat Ain 2003, being a special law, the provisions of Section 5 of the Act will not  apply and therefore the application for restoration shall be rejected outright.     (36).
In judicial proceedings, once fraud is proved, all advantages gained by playing fraud can be taken away. Suppression of any material fact/document amounts to a fraud upon the court. ..........(43)
