   It is, thus, seen that object of this section is that there may not be failure of justice on account of mistake of either party in bringing the valuable evidence on record or by leaving ambiguity in the statement of witnesses examined by the parties. This section is intended to bring finality to the litigation. The learned trial court is required to focus its attention on the aspect as to whether evidence which is sought to be brought on record is essential for the just decision of the case. If this criteria is fulfilled, then application for recall of witness moved by taking resort to the provisions of Section 311 of the Code of Criminal Procedure needs to be allowed by the learned trial court. [Para no.5]
