Kiran Pal Singh v. Anirudh Kumar Gupta - WRIT - A No. - 46107 of 2007  RD-AH 15864 (21 September 2007)
HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT ALLAHABAD
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No.46107 of 2007
Kiran Pal Singh Vs. Anirudh Kumar Gupta
Hon'ble S.U. Khan, J.
It is rather disturbing that a landlord tenant matter in the form of S.C.C. Suit No.33 of 1994 is pending for 13 years before J.S.C.C., Muzaffar Nagar.
In the suit filed by landlord respondent, tenant petitioner raised objection of valuation. His objection was accepted. Thereafter, the landlord applied for amendment in the plaint in the light of the order passed by the Court accepting the objections pertaining to valuation raised by the tenant defendant. The said amendment was allowed by the Trial Court through order dated 10.04.2007. The said order was subjected to S.C.C. Revision No.21 of 2007. In-charge District Judge, Muzaffar Nagar dismissed the revision on 17.07.2007, hence this writ petition.
I do not find absolutely any error in the impugned orders. Valuation was enhanced on the objection of the tenant, hence it was absolutely essential to amend the plaint.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has argued that relief for recovery of water tax from 01.02.1990 to 11.02.1993 has been added through the amendment in the plaint. However, as the suit was filed on 03.08.1994, hence relief for recovery of water tax since before 03.08.1991 was time barred. Let this aspect be considered by J.S.C.C. while deciding the suit finally.
It is further directed that J.S.C.C. shall make all efforts to decide the suit very expeditiously. Absolutely no un-necessary adjournment shall be granted to any of the parties. If Court is inclined to grant any adjournment to any of the parties, then it shall be on very heavy cost, which shall not be less than Rs.500/- per adjournment.
Office is directed to send a copy of this order to District Judge, Muzaffar Nagar as well as to J.S.C.C., Muzaffar Nagar. District Judge shall shall look into all tenant landlord matters. A list of such cases pending before J.S.C.C. or before Prescribed Authority in the form of release applications under Section 21 of U.P. Urban Buildings (Regulation of Letting, Rent & Eviction) Act, 1972 or S.C.C. revisions or appeals under Section 22 of the Act for more than 10 years shall also be prepared and they should be decided on top priority.
Writ petition is disposed of.
