The site in question belonging to the petitioner was ordered to be resumed. Later on, on an appeal filed by the petitioner, Chief Administrator vide order dated September 21, 2004 set aside the resumption order on an undertaking given by the petitioner that he would clear all the outstanding dues.
Consequently, it was directed that the petitioner shall clear all the outstanding dues along with the forfeiture amount within 3 weeks of the passing of the aforesaid order. The petitioner took up the matter by way of C.W.P NO. 9785 OF 2005 2
revision petition before the Advisor. Vide order dated May 11, 2005, the Advisor also set aside the order of resumption subject to the petitioner depositing the entire outstanding amount by June 30, 2005.
The petitioner has approached this Court claiming that the amount of forfeiture was not liable to be charged from him inasmuch as the resumption order has been set aside.
From the perusal of the orders passed by appellate authority as well as the revisional authority, we find that the petitioner had undertaken to clear all the outstanding dues. The aforesaid outstanding dues would definitely include the amount of forfeiture as well. Once the petitioner had given an undertaking then later on the petitioner could not be heard to make a grievance with regard to the forfeiture amount.
