4. The High Court may decline to interfere in revision, if it is satisfied that substantial justice has been done.
5. The revisional powers of the High Court can be invoked only in those cases in which no appeal lies to the High Court
6. While exercising revisional jurisdiction, the High Court cannot interfere with an order passed by the subordinate court, if it is within its jurisdiction, even if it is legally wrong.
