1. Gulistan Textile Mills v/s Askari Bank Limited etc. (2013 CLD 2005)

Tag Line:       The Court enjoys an independent, suo moto and sua sponte power to examine the plaint at any stage of the suit under Order 7 Rule 11, CPC. The Court can proceed unilaterally against the plaintiff alone without engaging the other party (defendants) if the Court is of the view that the plaint is liable to be rejected.

2. Ch Saeed Ullah v/s Faisal Bank (2016 CLD 224)

Tag Line:         High Court is slow in encouraging parties to circumvent provision of special statute in respect of orders which they seek to challenge by petition under Article 199 of the Constitution. Mere erroneous exercise of jurisdiction by special court does not render its decision to be illegal and without lawful authority so as to be amenable to extraordinary Constitutional jurisdiction of High Court.

4. Nazir Rice Mills (Pvt) Limited v/s Habib Metropolitan Bank Limited (2017 CLD 186)

Tag Line:        Perusal of record revealed that the defendant on the one hand negated the authenticity of the Statement of Accounts, on the other hand relied on the same to prove its case, and thus lacked consistency in its stance—No defect in the plaint filed by the plaintiff Bank was pointed out by the defendant and simple denial of execution of documents could not be termed as a plausible defence or an issue which could only be resolved after recording of evidence.

6. Habib Metropolitan Bank Limited v/s Faizan Ali & Company (Pvt) Limited (2017 CLD 1583)

Tag Line:         Computer generated statements of accounts / ledgers of Bank do not need certification under S.2(8) of Bankers’ Books Evidence Act, 1891, or under S.12 of Electronic Transactions Ordinance, 2002.

Tag Line:         Availability or otherwise of pledged stock was a question that could be determined in execution proceedings at the time when collateral security was required to be accounted for and brought to sale; as such the same alone did not furnish a ground of defence to defendants for grant of leave.
