DISTINGUISH BETWEEN ORDER AND DECREE

DISTINGUISH BETWEEN ORDER AND DECREE

Author: "SHINY G MAHIMA"

Law suggests a collection of rules which are perceived by a nation to administer the activity and conduct of the natives. It very well may be assembled as substantive law – that learns the privileges of the gatherings and procedural/modifier law – that decides the training, methodology, and apparatus to execute the rights and obligations. On the grounds of decree or order, a judgment is passed by the court. A request is only a judgment while an announcement is a last piece of judgment.

According to section 2 of CPC, \"decree\" means the formal expression of an adjudication which, so far as regards the Court expressing it, conclusively determines the rights of the parties with regard to all or any of the matters in controversy in the suit and may be either preliminary or final. It shall be deemed to include the rejection of a plaint and the determination of any question within [3] section 144, but shall not include-

(a) any adjudication from which an appeal lies as an appeal from an order, or

(b) any order of dismissal for default.\n\nA decree is preliminary when further proceedings have to be taken before the suit can be completely disposed of. It is final when such adjudication completely disposes of the suit. It may be partly preliminary and partly final.

Examples of decisions which are Decrees – Dismissal of appeal as time-barred, Dismissal or a suit or appeal for want of evidence or proof, Order holding appeal to be not maintainable.

Section 2(14) of civil procedure code defines what is an order. It states that \"order\" means the formal expression of any decision of a Civil Court which is not a decree. Orders are of two kinds, appealable orders, and non-appealable orders.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DECREE AND ORDER\n\nA decree can only originate from a suit initiated by introducing a plaint. But an order may originate from any suit; for the most part, it emerges from a procedure initiated on an application.

A decree is the substantive legal rights of the parties and order is the procedural legal rights of the parties.

A decree is an adjudication which conclusively determines the rights of the parties with regard to any or all matters in controversy. On the other hand, an order may or may not finally determine the rights of the parties.

In a suit decree is only one and there can be many orders in a suit.\n\nA decree can be preliminary, final or partly preliminary and partly final and order is always final.

Except in certain suits where two decrees, one preliminary and the other final, are passed, in every suit, there is only one decree. On the other hand, many orders can be passed in a single suit.

A decree is normally appealable except if it is specifically barred by law. Order can be appealable or non-appealable.
