Civil Misc. Writ Petition no. 17479 of 2006
Om Duta Sharma and others
State of U.P. and others.
Hon'ble Yatindra Singh, J.
Hon'blr R.K. Rastogi,J.
1. The petitioners' land was acquired under the provisions of The U.P.Avas Evam Vikas Parishad Adhiniyam, 1965. An award has also been made. The petitioners filed references against the award. Some of the references have been decided. Thereafter appeals have been filed in this Court. In some of the appeals the matter has been remanded back and some are still pending in this Court. This litigation has not come to an end. During pendency of this litigation the petitioners also applied for allotment of the land as displaced persons. When their case was not considered they filed a writ petition which was disposed of on 26.7.2004 granting them liberty to file representation before appropriate authorities. The appropriate authority has rejected the representation on 2.2.2006, hence, the present writ petition.
2. We have heard learned counsel for the petitioners and the Standing Counsel for the respondents.
3. The allotment of land to displaced persons is to be made in accordance with the Rules framed under the U.P.Avas Evam Vikas Parishad Adhiniyam. Under these rules allotment is to be done by lottery. The order indicates that except Asha Ram Sharma, none of the petitioners had given the consent for lottery and as such their names were not included in the lottery in the year 2003. Next lottery is now to be drawn in the year 2006. The petitioners may apply for inclusion of their names in the lottery.
4. The learned counsel for the petitioners submits that these rules regarding allotment of plots to the petitioners (whose land was acquired ) by lottery system are ultra-vires. The petitioners have already been given compensation for the acquired land. Allotment of plots is an extra benefit to them. There is neither any illegality in the Rules nor in the impugned order.
The writ petition has no merit and it is dismissed.
