Court No. 7
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 6864 of 2007
Mahendra Singh Kushwaha
State of U.P. & others
Hon'ble Rakesh Tiwari, J.
Heard learned counsel for the parties and perused the record.
The petitioner has challenged the impugned order dated 18.12.2006 passed by the Deputy Commissioner (Food), Kanpur Division, Kanpur rejecting the application of the petitioner for interim order under Sub-clause (5) of Clause 28 of the U.P. Scheduled Commodities Distribution Order, 2004.
A perusal of the record shows that the petitioner is the licence holder of a fair price shop in Gram Sabha Bhisar, Block Kalyanpur, Tehsil Sadar, District Kanpur Nagar. The District Supply Officer on the basis of certain complaint against him with regard to irregular distribution of essential commodities as well as on the basis of alleged false reports first suspended the petitioner's licence of fair price shop vide order dated 1.10.2005 and subsequently cancelled the licence vide order dated 19.5.2006.
The petitioner filed an appeal against the impugned order under Clause 28 (3) of the U.P. Scheduled Commodities Distribution Order, 2004 along with an interim order application before the Deputy Commissioner (Food) who admitted the appeal and called for a report from the court below for granting stay order. When the Deputy Commissioner (Food) did not pass any order on the stay application of the petitioner for a long time, he made another application dated 4.12.2006 for staying the operation of the order of the District Supply Officer, Kanpur Nagar dated 19.5.2006 or to stay the allotment of any new shop.
However, the Deputy Commissioner (Food) vide impugned order dated 18.12.2006 rejected the application of the petitioner dated 4.12.2006 for staying the operation of the order of the District Supply Officer dated 19.5.2006.
The order challenged in this writ petition is an interlocutory order which can be challenged by the petitioner along with final order, hence no interference under Article 226 of the Constitution is called for.
The writ petition is accordingly dismissed. No order as to costs.
It is, however, directed that the appeal of the petitioner be decided expeditiously.
