W.P.(C).No.22460 of 2007
Dated this the 23rd day of July 2007
The petitioner challenges Exts.P1 and P2 revenue recovery notices by which the petitioner has been directed to pay arrears of Motor Vehicle Tax due from the petitioner. Petitioner submits that before issue of Exts.P1 and P2 petitioner was not favoured with a demand notice and therefore, Exts.P1 and P2 are unsustainable. However the petitioner submits that the petitioner would pay the amount if given some time. The learned Government Pleader opposes the prayer. Having heard both sides, I dispose of the writ petitioner with the following directions: Petitioner shall pay an amount of Rs.40,000/- within two weeks from today. Balance shall be paid in ten equal monthly instalments starting from 16.8.2007. The subsequent instalments shall be paid on the first working day after 15th of every succeeding month. If the petitioner pays the amounts as directed above, further proceedings pursuant to Exts. P1 and P2 shall be kept in abeyance. However, if the petitioner defaults W.P.(C).22460/2007 2 payment of either the Rs.40,000/- or any of the subsequent instalments, it would be open to the respondents to continue the proceedings in accordance with Exts.P1 and P2 without having to issue any fresh notice or proceedings in that regard.
