The court observed in Shri Ram Sahu vs Vinod Kumar Rawat that the power of the review provided under section 114 and order 47 of the code of civil procedure, 1908 is not exercised by the court as the inherent or the appellate power.

In Perry Kansagra vs Smriti Madan Kansagra, the court observed the general rule that the judgment should not be altered once it’s signed. The court which passed the review order doesn’t sit in the appeal to hear appeal against its own order.

The court can review the judgment under 41 rule 1 when there is mistake or apparent on the face of the record. It’s not for substituting the view of the court passed the judgment, but only for correcting the mistake apparent on the face of the record.
