Saimeenakshiramu vs Ceena Thana Karuppaiya: Expedited Resolution in Civil Revision Petition


The case of Saimeenakshiramu vs Ceena Thana Karuppaiya, decided on June 2, 2021, is an instance of the judicial system’s response to expedite pending legal matters. This Civil Revision Petition was filed with the objective of obtaining a directive for the timely disposal of a petition (H.M.O.P.No.34 of 2020) by the Subordinate Court, Devakottai.


The specifics of the H.M.O.P. (Hindu Marriage Original Petition) No. 34 of 2020 are not detailed in the available summary. However, the filing of the Civil Revision Petition indicates a request for the higher court’s intervention to speed up the proceedings in the lower court.

Proceedings and Decision:

  1. Representation: Mr. PL. Narayanan, a learned counsel, represented the petitioner in this case. His arguments, presumably centered on the need for a swift resolution, played a crucial role in the court’s decision.
  2. Judicial Directive: The court, after considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the stage at which the petition was in the lower court, issued a directive. This directive ordered the Subordinate Court in Devakottai to dispose of the petition within three months from the receipt of this order.
  3. Disposition of the Petition: With this direction, the Civil Revision Petition was disposed of. The court specified ‘No costs’, indicating that no additional legal costs were imposed by this decision.
  4. Note on Judicial Communication: Interestingly, the order acknowledged the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown. It allowed for the use of a web copy of the order for official purposes but emphasized the responsibility of the advocate or litigant to ensure the accuracy of the copy used.


This case underscores the judicial system’s flexibility and responsiveness, particularly in times of crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision to expedite the disposal of the lower court’s petition reflects an understanding of the urgency and the potential impact of delays in legal proceedings.


The Saimeenakshiramu vs Ceena Thana Karuppaiya case highlights the importance of timely justice and the court’s role in ensuring that legal proceedings are conducted efficiently. It also illustrates how external factors, like a pandemic, can influence judicial processes and the adoption of digital tools for legal communication.
