An order was passed on 16.9.2005 extending the time till 31.12.2005 for deposit of the amount. Although time for deposit was extended till 31.12.2005 the sale proclamation was issued notifying the date 17.11.2005.
This writ petition was filed challenging the said sale proclamation. This Court granted interim order till the next date of listing that the petitioner shall not be compelled to pay the amount by taking any coercive process in terms of the order of this Court dated 16.9.2005.
