Vigilantibus non dormantibus jura subvenient
Vigilantibus non dormantibus jura subvenient is a legal maxim related to Law of Limitation.
The Law helps those who are vigilant and not those who sleep over their rights
The exhaustive Law of Limitation does not create a right. It just bars the remedy and prohibits revival of barred rights. The Section 23 of Indian Contract Act, 1872 prohibits parties from contesting override statutory provisions as to limitation.
