TIME LIMITATION CAN’T BE STOPPED WHEN STARTED

4:39 AM

When the limitation once starts, on subsequent disability or inability can stop it. Do you agree?

Section 9 of the Limitation act, 1908 laid down the principle of continuous running of time limitation. According to this Section once the time limitation begins to run, it runs continuously and without any break or interruption until the entire prescribed period has run out and no disability or inability to sue accruing subsequently will stop it running.
