I lost my case in Arbitration Tribunal. Now, I want to take my case to a higher court, but my lawyer is telling me I will need to pay 18,000 Court fee first. Is there a way around this? -- Name withheld upon request

Reply:
You may not need to pay this amount. Section 115 of the code of civil procedure Code 1908 provides an opportunity to the aggrieved litigant to file a Revision Application in the High Court. It empowers a High Court to entertain revision in any case decided by any court or Tribunal subordinate to it under the Revisional jurisdiction of the High Court.

The Court fees to file a Revision Application is only Rs. 50/=, however, there are certain pre-conditions which need to be met before a Revision Application can be filed.
