S.SIRI JAGAN, JUDGEW.P (C) NO. 28225 OF 2006
Dated this the 27th day of October, 2006
J U D G M E N T
Heard the learned counsel for the petitioner as also the learned Standing Counsel appearing for the Employees Provident Fund Organization. The petitioner claims to be a partner of M/s. New Star Weaving Works, but she being a silent partner was not aware of the happenings in the establishment as she was away. Now some of her well-wishers brought to her notice that there has been a notice published in the news paper putting her family property to public auction for realization of dues under the Employees Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act. Ext.P1 is the said notification. The petitioner is challenging the said notification.
2. The learned Standing Counsel appearing for the Provident Fund Organization submits that the Managing Partner of WP(C) No. 28225/2006 (2) the firm, of which the petitioner is also a partner, was heard before final orders have been passed and he had challenged the orders in this court unsuccessfully. Further he points out that in this writ petition, the petitioner does not challenge the basic order pursuant to which Ext.P1 sale notice has been issued. Therefore, according to him, this writ petition is not maintainable.
3. After having heard both sides, I am satisfied that without challenging the orders, pursuant to which Ext.P1 sale notice has been issued, the petitioner cannot successfully challenge Ext.P1 notice for sale by auction of the property in question for realising Provident Fund arrears as per those orders. Therefore, I do not find any merit in this writ petition and accordingly the same is dismissed.
