I have seen the order dated 20.11.2017 in CS(OS) 1188/2009, in this order Ms. Deepakshi Jain has been appointed as an Local commissioner to inspect the suit property and suggest the mode of partition and whether the suit property can be divided by meets and bounds. With respect to the powers which has been given to the local commissioner by the court, Local commissioner has all the powers which Hon'ble court has, however these powers are limited only to the subject matter mentioned in the order. Since there has been no communication from the local commissioner you can bring this to the knowledge of the court on the next date of hearing on 12th July 2018.
