Bare acts > Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 > Order 21 Rule 37


37. Discretionary power to permit judgment debtor to show cause against detention in prison.- (1) Notwithstanding anything in these rules, where an application is for the execution of a decree for the payment of money by the arrest and detention in the civil prison of a judgment debtor who is liable to be arrested in pursuance of the application, the court shall, instead of issuing a warrant for his arrest, issue a notice calling upon on him to appear before the court on a day to be specified in the notice and show cause why he should not be committed to the civil prison:

Provided that such notice shall not be necessary if the court is satisfied, by affidavit, or otherwise, that, with the object or effect of delaying the execution of the decree, the judgment debtor is likely to abscond or leave the local limits of the jurisdiction of the court. /

(2) Where appearance is not made in obedience to the notice, the court shall, if the decree holder so requires, issue a warrant for the arrest of the judgment debtor.


ALLAHABAD.- In Rule 37 (1) substitute the word “may” for the word “shall” between the words “the Court” and “instead” and delete the proviso so that rule. (l.6.1957)

In sub-rule (1) substitute “may” for “shall”. (5.4.1961).
