♦Jurisdiction, Powers and Authority of Tribunals

  • Whenever the Tribunal or the Appellate Tribunal is established from its appointed day, i.e., date from which they function is declared in the notification, they exercise jurisdiction, powers and authority to entertain and decide applications or appeals, as the case may be, from the banks and financial institutions for and about recovery of debts due to them.
  • Chairperson of Appellate Tribunal is given general power of superintendence and control over the Tribunals under his jurisdiction. The chairperson can transfer any application from any
  • Presiding Officer within his jurisdiction to any other Presiding Officer within his jurisdiction, on Receiving application for transfer of case or even on his own motion. However before such transfer, he has to give notice to the parties and hear them. He also has power of appraising work of presiding officers, under his control.

♦Bar Of Jurisdiction Of Civil Courts

  • From the date of establishing the Tribunal, i.e., the appointed day, no court or other authority shall have any jurisdiction, powers or authority to deal within any way in recovery cases above Rupees ten lakh. Thus the Civil Courts or any other authority will loose and will not have the jurisdiction for cases where due amount recoverable is above Rupees ten lakh by banks and financial institutions. However, this is not applicable to High Courts and Supreme Courts exercising jurisdiction under Articles 226 and 227 of the Constitution.
  • The relevant date of bar of jurisdiction by the court or other authority is not the date when this Act came into application. The date is since when the Tribunal is established having jurisdiction in that particular area. In Bhanu Construction Company Ltd. vs Andhra Bank [2002] 37 SCL 769, a question came whether the order passed by a Civil Court after coming into force of the DRT Act but before establishing the Tribunal is valid on jurisdiction point or not. The Supreme Court held that order passed by the Civil Court prior to establishment of a Tribunal but after commencement of DRT Act was well within the jurisdiction of the Civil Court.
