The petitioner availed of a loan for Rs. 5,00,000/-. Since the amount was not repaid, the 5th respondent had taken steps to recover the amount. Now the petitioner approached this court for getting the benefit of one time settlement as well as instalment facilities. Heard the counsel appearing for the petitioner and the learned counsel for the 5th respondent. The petitioner has filed Ext.P2 representation for getting the benefit of one time settlement. It is submitted by the counsel for the bank that if the petitioner pays a substantial amount towards the loan, the benefit of one time settlement can be granted to him. While admitting the Writ Petition, the petitioner was directed to deposit an amount of Rs. 1,00,000/- within one month from the date of the order, but the petitioner had not complied with that order. However, it is now submitted by the learned counsel for the bank that the petitioner had already remitted an amount of Rs.2,00,000/- recently. . In the above circumstances, the 5th respondent-bank is directed to consider the claim of the petitioner for one time settlement and take a decision in the matter as early as possible, at any rate within 45 days from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment, provided the petitioner remits a further amount of Rs.50,000/- within one month from today for one time settlement. The petitioner shall also file an application for the benefit of one time settlement after remitting the amount as ordered. The Writ Petition is disposed of as above.
