This order shall dispose of two Civil Writ Petitions being C.W.P. No.6666 of 2003 and 17702 of 2003 as identical facts are involved in both these cases.
On account of the interim directions issued by this court in the aforesaid two writ petitions, the respondent-Administration deputed a competent Officer to inspect the premises of the petitioners.
Shri S.K.Pipat, learned senior counsel appearing for the petitioners informs the court that on inspection of the premises of the petitioners, it has been found that there were no serious building violations existing at the site and only some deviation which were sanctionable or compoundable were existed. This fact is not disputed by Shri Sanjiv Sharma,learned counsel appearing or the respondents in the two petitions.
However, Shri Sharma points out that the aforesaid building violations though sanctionable or compoundable could be so sanctioned or compounded only on submission of revised building plan by the petitioners.
Shri Sharma, at this stage, also points out that the petitioners had raised illegal constructions which were liable to be taken note of by this court.
C.W.P. No.6666 of 2003
Having heard the learned counsel for the parties and having considered the controversy in question, we are satisfied that since on the inspection conducted by the Officer of the respondent-Administration, it has been found that there were no serious violations and only such violations are existing which were either sanctionable or compoundable, therefore, no further action is required to be taken against the petitioners.
Consequently, we dispose of the present petitions with a liberty to the petitioners to submit a revised building plan within a period of six weeks from the day a certified copy of this order is received. On receipt of the aforesaid revised building plan, the competent authority shall take into consideration the aforesaid revised building plan and take further action in accordance with law. The resumption order, if any, passed against the petitioners shall be treated as non-existent.
It is made clear that if the aforesaid revised building plans are not submitted within the aforesaid stipulated period, then the present writ petitions shall be deemed to have been dismissed.
A copy of this order be given dasti on usual charges.
