Amendments In Written Statement Cannot Completely Displace Former Admissions: Kerala High Court

[15 September 2021]
While dealing with a plea where a written statement was amended after the matter was listed for trial, the Kerala High Court observed that amendments made in a written statement cannot completely displace the former admissions made before the amendment. Justice V.G Arun while dismissing the original suit remarked: “…in the case at hand, the amendments would not only have the effect of the defendant making inconsistent and alternative pleadings, but also of completely displacing the admissions made in the written statement. Even the most liberal approach towards amendment of written statements will not justify the approval of such an application.”
