Dated this the 17th day of August, 2007
Petitioner challenges Ext.P7. Petitioner seeks a direction to implement Ext.P3 order. Case of the petitioner is that by Ext.P7 dated 12/06/2007 the Panchayat directed demolition of the building constructed in violation of Section 220(b) of the Kerala Panchayat Raj Act. According to the petitioner, there was a civil suit filed by the Panchayat itself and it culminated in Ext.P5 judgment. In Ext.P5 it is found that there is no violation of Section 220(b) by the petitioner. According to the petitioner there is no basis for proceeding against him under Section 220 (b).
2. I heard learned counsel for the petitioner and the learned counsel for the Panchayat also. By Ext.P3, the Deputy Director found that there is no violation of Section 220(b) and directed the respondent-Panchayat to number the building and also to issue necessary certificates to the petitioner for obtaining WPC No.18783/07 2 Ration Card and Electricity. I feel that there cannot be any legal basis for sustaining Ext.P7 having regard to the finding in the civil suit. Accordingly, Ext.P7 is quashed. It is submitted by the learned counsel for the Panchayat that the building is already numbered , but the ownership certificate has not been granted so far. There will be a direction to the third respondent to issue the ownership certificate of the building in question to the petitioner within a period of three weeks from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment.
