How are court orders executed in Pakistan?

Rules regarding execution of court orders are governed by the Civil Procedure Code 1908.

A decree may be executed by the same court which passed it or by court to which it is sent for execution. Court which passed decree may send it to another court for execution if judgment debtor: (1) Resides or carries on business within local limits of jurisdiction of other court; (2) has no property within jurisdiction of court passing decree and has property within jurisdiction of other court; (3) has immoveable property within jurisdiction of other court and order is regarding sale of such property; (4) for any other reason recorded by court. All questions arising out of execution determined by court executing decree.

When suing a partnership a decree against the firm can be executed against: (1) Property of firm; (2) partners sued in their own names; (3) any person who has been individually served with a summons as a partner and has failed to appear; (4) in other cases against any other persons except aforestated with leave of court.

Where the  judgment debtor dies without satisfying decree,the decree holder may apply to court for execution against legal representatives who are only liable to extent of deceased’s property which is in their hands and is not already disposed of. Notice to representatives is necessary.

Foreign decrees, including arbitration awards, may be executed in Pakistan if the decree is from the court of  the country with which Pakistan has reciprocal arrangements.
