Caveat

What is a CAVEAT?

Caveat is a two line application addressed to the court, mentioning the details of any matter which is instituted or expected to be instituted in a suit/appeal/proceeding before the said court where the applicant/caveator request that no order with regard to the said matter may be passed without giving notice to the applicant/caveator.

A plea made by the party to the dispute that the AUTHORITY SHOULD NOT DECIDE THE MATTER WITHOUT HEARING THEM and to avoid Judgement on one side hearing this procedure is adopted.

IN OTHER WORDS, IT IS A FORMAL NOTIFICATION TO A COURT OR COURT OFFICER NOT TO TAKE CERTAIN STEPS TILL THE CAVEATOR IS HEARD.
