Dear Sir,

It all depends upon the profile of the advocate you select. If Court fees is very low then it depends upon the profile of the advocate.



According to The Karnataka Civil Rules of Practice, 1967 the Advocate fee is calculated on the value or the subject matter of the suit, which shall be the same as prscribed by the Karnataka Court Fees and Suits Valuation Act, 1958,

For the determining the jurisdiction of the Court, according to the following scales: Suit Claim Above Rs.1,00, 000/- Rs..4,125/-+1 1/2(one and half) per cent on the amount which exceeds Rs.1,00,000/-


Now according to the suit property valuation of Rs.33,35,65,457/- the Advocate fee amounts to Rs.50,01,981/-.
