Shyam Das v. Dy. Director Of Consolidation, Siddharth Nagar & Others - WRIT - B No. 26146 of 2006  RD-AH 9430 (11 May 2006)
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 26146 of 2006
Deputy Director of Consolidation, Sidharth Nagar & Others
Hon'ble Krishna Murari, J.
Heard Sri Tripathi B. G. Bhai, learned counsel for the petitioner.
The facts in brief are that objections filed by the petitioner claiming mutation of his name over the land in dispute on the basis of an alleged will deed, was allowed by the Consolidation Officer vide order dated 23.2.1996. Respondents no. 3 and 4 filed an application for recall of the said order, which came to be allowed on 20.12.2002. Thereafter the petitioner filed a restoration application on the ground that the order dated 20.12.2002 was passed without any notice or opportunity of hearing. The said application came to be dismissed by the Consolidation Officer on 20.5.2005. Feeling aggrieved, the petitioner filed a revision. The Deputy Director of Consolidation vide order dated 23.1.2006 has dismissed the same.
The Deputy Director of Consolidation has dismissed the revision mainly on the ground that the interest of justice demands that the dispute may be adjudicated after hearing both the parties. It is undisputed that respondents no. 3 and 4 who claim to be sons of deceased Ram Adhare were not impleaded in the objections filed by the petitioner claiming rights on the basis of the alleged will deed said to have been executed by Ram Adhare. It is also no doubt correct that the order passed in favour of the petitioner was recalled without any notice or opportunity to him. However, since respondents no. 3 and 4 are claiming to be sons of deceased Ram Adhare and challenging the will alleged to have been executed by him in favour of the petitioner it would be in the interest of justice that the dispute may be adjudicated after hearing both the parties.
I see no illegality in the impugned order passed by the Deputy Director of Consolidation. The writ fails and is accordingly dismissed in limine.
