Through the instant writ petition, the petitioner inter alia claims the monetary benefits due to her father, who has been missing since 25.05.1985. It is the contention of the learned counsel for the petitioner that the petitioner has been making requests to officers of the respondents but has not been favoured with any sympathetic consideration, eventually leading her to serve a legal notice dated 15.06.2006 (Annexure P-8). It is the vehement contention of the learned counsel for the petitioner that the petitioner will be satisfied, if the instant writ petition is disposed of with a direction to respondent No.2 i.e. the Director, Department of Ayurveda, Punjab, requiring him to take a final decision on the legal notice dated 15.6.2006 (Annexure P-8).
Notice of motion.
On our asking, Mr. B.S. Chahal, Assistant Advocate General, Punjab, accepts notice on behalf of the respondents. Learned counsel for the respondents states that he has no objection to the disposal of the instant writ CWP No.914 of 2007 2
petition in terms of the prayer made by the learned counsel for the petitioner.
In view of the above, without going into the merits of the claim raised by the petitioner, we consider it just and appropriate to dispose of the same by directing respondent No.2 i.e. the Director, Department of Ayurveda, Punjab, to take a final decision on the legal notice dated 15.6.2006 (Annexure P-8) by passing a well reasoned speaking order, within two months from the date of receipt of the certified copy of the order. In case the petitioner is found entitled to any monetary benefits, the same shall be calculated and released to the petitioner within one month thereafter.
Disposed of accordingly.
Order dasti on payment of usual charges.
