INTRODUCTION of Specific Relief Act
1. Specific Reliefs Act is complimentary to provisions of Contract Act and Transfer of Property Act, as the Act applies both to movable property and immovable property.
2. The Act applies in cases where Court can order specific performance of a contract or act. As per section 4, specific relief can be granted only for purpose of enforcing individual civil rights and not for the mere purpose of enforcing a civil law.
3. ‘Specific performance’ means Court will ask the party to perform his part of agreement, instead of asking him to pay damages to other party.
