S. SIRI JAGAN, J.W.P.(C)NO.21502 OF 2007
DATED THIS THE 12th DAY OF JULY, 2007
The petitioner conducts quarrying operations in 1 acre 821/2 cents of property purchased by him, as per Ext.P1 title deed. He claims to possess valid licences and permits for the quarry. By Ext.P3 the petitioner has been restrained from proceeding with quarrying operations. According to the petitioner, Ext.P3 has been issued without hearing him and he was never served with any of the proceedings referred to in Ext.P3. He further submits that The Taluk Surveyor had conducted the survey of his property on 25.6.07 and submitted a report to the Tahsildar. Therefore, the petitioner seeks a direction to the 3rd respondent to lift the prohibition as per Ext.P3. However, for the present the petitioner would be satisfied with a direction to the District Collector to consider and pass orders on Ext.P5.
2. I have heard the learned Government pleader also. I dispose of this writ petition with a direction to the 2nd respondent, District Collector to consider and pass appropriate orders on Ext.P5 as W.P.(c)No.21502/07 2 expeditiously as possible, at any rate, within one month from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment.
