Time-Barred Suits will be Dismissed, Even without Limitation Defense being Raised: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court, in a plea for the rendition of an account of the partnership firm, held that the plea shall be filled within the prescribed limitation period that is 3 years from the date of the partner’s death and if any suit is filed after the expiration of the limitation period it would not be maintainable, even if the defense of the suit being time barred is not raised.
