• Amendment in plaint

A suit has been filed for rectification of plot nos. During filing of suit  plot no  775 should be 776 was mentioned with logic that  both the plot are adjacent. However later  after measurement (After filing of suit) it came to know that  plot nos is 788 &785. The plot 788 & 785 is adjacent to 776. The trial has not commenced  so far.
My question is amendment is possible under which order or rule and what should be appropriate logic .

1) under order VI Rule  17 amendment of plaint can be done by the plaintiff as trial has not commenced so far 

2) no application for the amendment shall be allowed by the court after the commencement of the trial, unless the court is of the opinion that notwithstanding the parties’ due diligence, they could not have raised the matter before the commencement of the trial.

The amendment can be sought under order 6 rule 17 of the code. The logic would be subject to the pleadings which we have not read.
