Hon. Sunil Ambwani, J.

Heard learned counsel for the petitioner and learned Standing Counsel.

The petitioner's authorisation to distribute scheduled commodities was  cancelled on 3.12.2005 and the appeal was dismissed by the Commissioner, Bareilly Division o  1.5.2007 on the ground of serious irregularities. In distribution of the scheduled commodities.  A report was made that the  petitioner had overcharged the price of kerosene oil, wheat and rice.  The village pradhan and many other card holders gave affidavits that the petitioner is distributing  foodgrains, sugar and kerosene oil on only on one day in a month and does not distribute foodgrains, sugar and kerosene oil to B.P.L. In prescribed quantities and price to the card holders.  

The Supreme Court has passed orders in a public interest writ petition directing all the shop keepers in Public Distribution Scheme to distribute scheduled commodities to persons holding 'BPL' ' Antyodaya' and 'Annapurna' benefices according to their convenience.  The distribution of scheduled commodities only on one day at higher prices causes severe hardship to the poverty stricken beneficiaries.  Learned counsel for the petitioner states that he had made a request for a proper inspection and that the authorisation could not be cancelled on a single inspection.  The argument does not merit consideration.  Even a single inspection can demonstrate severe irregularities in distribution of scheduled commodities.  The petitioner failed to produce stock and sale register to support his plea in defence.

The orders passed by the Sub Divisional Magistrate, Bisalpur, Pilibhit and the Commissioner, Bareilly Division, Bareilly cancelling the authorisation do not suffer from any illegality.  The writ petition is dismissed.

Dt. 24.5.2007.
