S. SIRI JAGAN, J.W.P.(C)NO. 26870 OF 2006
DATED THIS THE 20th DAY OF JULY, 2007
The petitioner has obtained properties pursuant to decree in O.S.No.134/1957. The petitioner has applied for mutation of the properties which the petitioner has purchased in court auction. Ext.P5 is the said application. The petitioner complains that the same is not being disposed of by the 2nd respondent.
2. The learned Government pleader submits that several litigations are pending between the petitioner and another person claiming to have rights over the property and that is why the application has not been disposed of yet. I do not think that the 2nd respondent is entitled to take such a stand when the application is received for mutation. The 2nd respondent has to decide the matter on the basis of the documents available. Simply because of some suit pending in respect of the same, the 2nd respondent cannot postpone consideration of the same especially, in view of Rule 16 of the Transfer of Registry Rules which says that transfer of registry has to be effected in accordance with the decrees of Civil Courts as and when the same are passed. W.P.(c)No.26870/06 2 In the above circumstances, the 2nd respondent is directed to consider Ext.P5 application for mutation submitted by the petitioner and pass appropriate orders thereon as expeditiously, as possible, at any rate, within one month from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
