conditions affecting the firm or persons have ceased to be such as to require
registration under this Act, the firm or person need not be registered so long as
such conditions continue.

in respect of any firm or person such firm or person shall, within one
month after such change, or such longer period as the Department may,
on application being made in any particular case, whether before or after
the expiration of such period of one month, allow, furnish by sending by
post or delivery to the Department a statement in writing in the
prescribed form specifying the nature and date of the change, signed and
where necessary verified, in like manner as the statement required on

particulars or change in the particulars to be furnished to the Department

amended or completed and submitted to it again or that a fresh
document be submitted in its place or that the document be submitted
again with the correct fee or duty.24

(3) The Department may require any person who submits a document to it
under this Act to produce to it such other document or to give it such
information as it considers necessary in order to form an opinion
whether it may refuse under subsection (2) to accept for registration or to
otherwise receive the document.25

(4) Any person who is aggrieved by the refusal of the Department to register
or receive any document submitted to it under this Act, may appeal to a
Court of Summary Jurisdiction.26

enforceable by action or other legal proceeding either in the business
name or otherwise.
Provided always as follows: —
(a) The defaulter may apply to the court for relief against the
disability imposed by this section, and the court, on being
satisfied that the default was accidental, or due to inadvertence, or
some other sufficient cause, or that on other grounds it is just and
equitable to grant relief, may grant such relief either generally, or
as respects any particular contracts, on condition of the costs of
the application being paid by the defaulter, unless the court
otherwise orders, and on such other conditions (if any) as the
court may impose, but such relief shall not be granted except on
such service and such publication of notice of the application as
the court may order, nor shall relief be given in respect of any
contract if any party to the contract proves to the satisfaction of
the court that, if this Act had not been complied with, he would
not have entered into the contract;
(b) Nothing herein contained shall prejudice the rights of any other
parties as against the defaulter in respect of such contract as
aforesaid;
(c) If any action or proceeding shall be commenced by any other
party against the defaulter to enforce the rights of such party in
respect of such contract, nothing herein contained shall preclude
the defaulter from enforcing in that action or proceeding, by way
of counterclaim set off or otherwise, such rights as he may have
against that party in respect of such contract.
(2) In this section the expression “court” means the court or a judge thereof:
Provided that, without prejudice to the power of the High Court or a judge
thereof to grant such relief as aforesaid, if any proceeding to enforce any
contract is commenced by a defaulter in any court, the court may as respects
that contract, grant such relief as aforesaid.
11 Penalty for false statements

If any statement required to be furnished under this Act contains any matter
which is false in any material particular to the knowledge of any person signing
