Important: Increase of court jurisdiction

Effective 1st Mach 2013 monetary jurisdictions of Magistrate Courts and Session Courts have been increased:-

Magistrate court old jurisdiction up to RM 25, 000.00 now increased to RM 100, 000.00 and Session Courts from RM 250, 000.00 to RM 1 million.

Personally I think this is very good as the old limit of RM 25, 000.00 for magistrate courts and RM 250, 000.00 for session courts were no longer practical in modern Malaysia.

The amendments even go further on other extended jurisdiction such as injunctions, declaration etc.
