W.P.(C).No.23368 of 2007
Dated this the 31st day of July 2007
Heard parties. The petitioner's grievance is that without issuing final order in Appeal No.603/2005 to the petitioner. Respondents 3 and 4 are seeking to recover amount disputed in the appeal, by issuing Ext.P5 recovery proceedings. The petitioner therefore, seeks the following reliefs.
"i) issue a writ of mandamus, order or direction commanding the 1st respondent Tribunal to supply final order in Appeal No.603 of 2005 to the petitioner or his counsel forthwith; ii) issue a writ of mandamus, order or direction commanding the respondents 3 and 4 not to proceed with Ext.P5 recovery proceedings till the period prescribed under Section 35 of the FEMA, 1999 for filing appeal against the order of Ist respondent Tribunal before this Honourable Court; iii)stay Ext.P5 revenue recovery proceedings pending disposal of this writ petition." I have heard the learned Counsel for the petitioner the learned Assistant Solicitor General and the learned Government Pleader appearing for the respondents 3 and 4. I am satisfied that the petitioner is entitled to get a copy of the order in W.P.(C).No.23368/2007 Appeal No.603/2005 if it has not already been issued to the petitioner. Therefore, there would be a direction to the first respondent to issue a certified copy of the order in Appeal No.603/2005 to the petitioner or his counsel expeditiously. However, this would be subject to the contention of the respondents that an order has already been issued, if it has actually been so issued earlier. Till certified copy of the order is issued to the petitioner and 7 days thereafter further proceedings pursuant to Ext.P5 shall be kept in abeyance to enable the petitioner to workout his remedies against that order. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
