Learned counsel for Bank points out that the petitioner is not entitled to the benefit of Ext.P3 circular as prohibition in Ext.P3 is against the charge of rate higher than 100 % of the principal amount and in this case interest demanded is not in excess of double the amount and therefore the petitioner is not entitled to the benefit of the the circular.

Having regard to all facts, the writ petition is disposed of permitting the petitioner to pay off the entire amount remaining to be paid with due interest in 7 equal monthly instalments, the first of which shall be payable on or before 15/09/2007.
