II. NATURE OF DISPUTE
“Commercial Dispute” has been defined under Section 2(1)(c) of the Act. The definition of is exhaustive in nature and covers a wide variety of disputes arising out of the specified transactions from (i) to (xxii). Whereas Section 9 of the CPC provides the jurisdiction of Civil Courts to try all suits of civil nature except those expressly or impliedly barred. “Suit of Civil Nature” was defined by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Most Rev. P.M.A. Metropolitan v. Moran MarMarthoma1as being wider than the word ‘civil proceeding’. The expression ‘civil’ has been defined by the Black’s Law Dictionary as “relating to private rights and remedies that are sought by action or suit, as distinct
from criminal proceedings”. It was observed that the width of ‘civil’ has been stretched further by using the word ‘nature’ along with it.
