Head Note

The Code of Civil Procedure, 1908  - Section 100

Second Appeal - Concurrent Findings of Fact - Substantial question of law - Both the questions of law framed by the High Court not substantial questions of law -Even if the finding of fact is wrong, that by itself will not constitute a question of law - Wrong finding should stem out on a complete misreading of evidence or it should be based only on conjectures and surmises - Safest approach on perversity is the classic approach on the reasonable man's inference on the facts - To him, if the conclusion on the facts in evidence made by the court below is possible, there is no perversity - If not, the finding is perverse. Inadequacy of evidence or a different reading of evidence is not perversity.
