A Plaint is the written complaint or allegation. The person filing it is the “Plaintiff” and the person against whom it is filed is a “Defendant” in the case.
We then talk about the Vakalatnama which is a written document, through which the person/party filing the case authorizes an Advocate/Lawyer to appear in court on their behalf. However a person/party filing a case, may also appear in person.
Filing of plaint is done before the before Chief Ministerial Officer after paying appropriate court fee.
We also talk about what happens when the Court issues notice in a case.
