HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT ALLAHABAD
Hon'ble Janardan Sahai, J
It is submitted by the petitioner's counsel that the land of respondent nos. 4 to 7 was declared surplus in proceedings under the U.P. Imposition of Ceiling on Land Holding Act, 1961 which included the disputed land of which it is actually the petitioners who are the tenure holders and that there is also a decree under Section 229 B of the U.P. Zamindari Abolition & Land Reforms Act in favour of the petitioners' predecessors and the petitioners have objections under Section 11 (2) of the U.P. Imposition of Ceiling on Land Holding Act which are pending before the prescribed authority and during pendency of the proceedings the respondents are threatening to dispossess the petitioners. The only prayer made by the petitioners' counsel is that the prescribed authority may be directed to dispose of the objections within a time bound period and till then the petitioners may not be dispossessed from the land in dispute. It is stated that in a similar writ petition no. 18786 of 2002 Ram Bahadur Singh and others Vs. State of U.P. and others decided on 9.5.2002 such a direction has been issued.
I have heard learned standing counsel also.
