The Courts can grant costs in favour of succeeding party. But such orders granting costs are rarely passed by Indian Courts and that too only when Court wants to set an example against the frivolous, mala fide claims made by such party. Even in such cases, Courts by themselves determine an amount which is reasonable according to the Judge/ Presiding Officer and not the actual fees paid/ Costs incurred.
