I have a land ay Birbhum District. I have made an agreement with a promoter to make my building at Kolkata. Both signed that if any dispute we will settle at cKolkata Court. But now Contractor submitted the suit at Birbhum District. Can I say that as per agreement the case to be settled at Kolkata court ? As the land belongs at Birbhum the contractor disagree the terms and says the court has no territorial jurisdiction even we agreed that the settlement to be made at Kolkata court . What is the law? Territorial jurisdiction can not be changed by agreed terms ?
