      BANARSI DAS Vs SETH KASHIRM
    • 27. PEOPLE INVOLVED
      PLAINTFF:Kundanlal
      Defendants:
    • CASE OUTLINE
      • They formed a Joint Hindu Family till 1936
      • 33. The property owned by this family is a sugar mill at Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh known as “Sheo Prasad Banarsi Das Sugar Mills.”.
      • 34. After disruption of the family, the brothers decided to carry on the business of the sugar mill as partners instead of members of HUF.
      • 35. The partnership was to be at will and the brothers were to share the profit and losses equally.
      • 36. One brother would be appointed the managing partner, and the agreement provided that for subsequent years the person unanimously nominated by the brothers was to be the managing partner and till such an unanimous decision was made, the person functioning as managing partner in the previous year must continue.
    • TIME LINE
      • September 1, 1936: Commencing of the agreement. (Banarsi Das was made managing partner)
      • 37. 1941-44: Kundanlal was the managing partner
      • 38. May 13, 1944: Sheo Prasad (defendant no- 5) instituted a suit in the court of the Subordinate Judge, First Class, Lahore, for dissolution of partnership and rendition of accounts against Kundanlal and joined the other brothers as defendants to the suit.
      • 39. August 3. 1944: The court’s order was dated at this and Mr. P.C. Mahajan, Pleader, as receiver.
      • 40. April 5, 1945: From this date on, High Court appointed Kanshiram as Reciever in place of Mahajan
      • 41. (1944- 45: Kundanlal and his son was asked to work the mills as the agents of the U.P Government for these two years.)
      • 42. 1945-46: lease was renewed by the government of this period.
      • 43. August 28, 1956: Parties, except Devi Chand, made an application to the court at Lahore praying that the receiver be ordered to execute a lease in favour of Banarsidas for a period of five years.
      • 44. September 1946:Banarsidas obtained the possession of the mill.
    • FURTHER DEVELOPMENT
      • Sheo Prasad’s application to the court for distribution of Rs 81,00,000/-
      • 45. This amount was lying with the Receiver.
      • 46. The suggestion made thus was that the amount which was due to Kundanlal and Banarsidas should be withheld as they needed to render accounts.
      • 47. The amount was however distributed amongst all brothers and Devichand acknowledged the receipt on 14th November 1946.
    • TIMELINE CONTINUED
      On October 11, 1947: Lahore suit was dismissed for default as the parties had to migrate to India as a result of the partition of the country.
      November 8th 1947:Sheo Prasad instituted a suit before the court of Civil Judge, Bijnor against his brothers for a permanent injunction restraining Banarsidas from acting as Receiver.
      March 3, 1948: Suit was dismissed.
      July 16, 1948:Sheo Prasad transfers 1/6th of his shares to Banarsidas.
      July 30, 1949:Banarsidas filed his written statement.
      December 18, 1950: application regarding the appointment of Receiver was dismissed.
      February 19, 1951:Banarsidas made an application to the
      court for directing Kanshi Ram to give a lease of the mill to him for a period of five years.
      April 26, 1951: Mr. Mathur was appointed Receiver by the court.
      July 1951:MrMathur granted a lease for five years to Kundanlal on certain terms, which would
      be settled by the court.
      It may be appropriate to mention here that issues in the suit instituted by Kundanlal were framed on December 7, 1951, and one of the important issues was whether the lease dated September 12, 1946, granted to Banarsidas was void ab initio or was voidable and in either case what was its effect.
    • 48. Contentions of Banarsidas
      Under the Partnership Act, the partners are entitled to have the business of the partnership wound up even though a suit for accounts is barred under Art. 106 of the Limitation Act.
      Kanshi Ram having been appointed a Receiver by the Court stood in a fiduciary relationship to the other partners and the assets, which were in his possession, must be deemed to have been held by him for the benefit of all the partners. Therefore, independently of any other consideration, he was bound to render accounts.
      The question of limitation was not raised in the plaint or the grounds of appeal before the High Court and as it is a mixed question of fact and law, it should not have been made the foundation of the decision of the High Court.
      The Court was wrong in holding that limitation for the suit commenced on May 13, 1944.
    • 49. RATIO DECIDENDI
      Even assuming, however, that the term "notice" in the provision is wide enough to include within it a plaint filed in a suit for dissolution of partnership, the sub-section itself provides that the firm will be deemed to be dissolved as from the date of communication of the notice.
      It would follow, therefore, that a partnership would be deemed to be dissolved when the summons accompanied by a copy of the plaint is served on the defendant, where there is only one defendant, and on all defendants, when there are several defendants.
      Since a partnership will be deemed to be dissolved only from one date, the date of dissolution would have to be regarded to be the one on which the last summons was served.”
    • 50. DECISON
      The Supreme Court held that the High Court's decision must be set aside and that of the trial court restored.
      It should be mentioned that some of the parties including the appellant Banarsidas and the plaintiff-respondent, Kundanlal as well as the defendant respondent Kanshi Ram were agreeable to certain variations in the decree.
      But as there were other parties besides them to whom these variations are not acceptable, it is necessary to decide the appeals on merits.
      For the aforesaid reasons, the appeals of Banarsidas and Kundanlal were allowed and the decree of the trial court was restored.
