Chapter VI


Statement of case by other Courts to High Court Division, etc.
60.(1) If any Court, other than a Court mentioned in section 57, feels doubts as to the amount of duty to be paid in respect of any instrument under proviso (a) to section 35, the judge may draw up a statement of the case and refer it, with his own opinion thereon, for the decision of the High Court Division to which, if he were the Chief Revenue-authority, he would, under section 57, refer the same.
(2) Such Court shall deal with the case as if it had been referred under section 57, and send a copy of its judgment under the seal of the Court and the signature of the Registrar to the Chief Revenue-authority, and another like copy to the judge making the reference, who shall, on receiving such copy, dispose of the case conformably to such judgment.
(3) References made under sub-section (I), when made by a Court subordinate to a District Court, shall be made through the District Court, and, when made by any sub ordinate Revenue Court, shall be made through the Court immediately superior.
