Unregistered Family Settlement Will Operate As A Complete Estoppel Against The Parties To It: SC
The Supreme Court in CIVIL APPEAL NO. 784 OF 2010 titled as ” Thulasidhara & Another .Versus Narayanappa & Others” has observed that even if the family settlement was not registered, it would operate as a complete estoppel against the original plaintiff who was party to such settlement. The bench comprising Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice MR Shah was considering an appeal (Thulasidhara vs. Narayanappa) against a Karnataka High Court judgment which held that Exhibit D4 styled as Palupatti requires registration and the same could not be looked into, reversing the finding of both the courts below that it does not require any registration. The Trial court and the first appellate court had dismissed the suit on the basis of this document.
