Institution of Suit?
In India, the institution of a suit refers to the formal process of initiating a legal action by filing a plaint in the appropriate court. It is the act of presenting the claim before the court and seeking a legal remedy. The plaintiff, through the plaint, sets out the facts, grounds, and reliefs sought in the case. The institution of a suit involves paying the requisite court fees, submitting the necessary documents, and complying with procedural requirements. Once the suit is properly instituted, the court acquires jurisdiction over the matter and the litigation process begins, leading to subsequent stages such as pleadings, discovery, trial, and judgment.
Summons in a civil case is a legal document issued by the court to notify a defendant of a lawsuit and instruct them to appear in court.

Appearance and non-appearance of parties refers to their presence or absence in a legal proceeding. Parties may physically attend or be represented by legal counsel, signifying their active participation (appearance).

About Lesson

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document that authorizes a person, known as the “principal” or “grantor,” to grant someone else, known as the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact,” the authority to act on their behalf in legal, financial, or personal matters.

The principal grants specific powers and responsibilities to the agent through the POA document, allowing the agent to make decisions, sign documents, enter into contracts, manage finances, or handle other specified tasks on behalf of the principal.

The powers granted in a POA can be broad or limited, depending on the specific terms outlined in the document. A POA can be temporary or enduring, depending on whether it remains valid if the principal becomes incapacitated.
