Proceedings under the provisions of the Kerala Building Tax Act are under challenge in the writ petition. According to the petitioner, the building though initially proposed to be constructed by one person, the same was found impossible and hence an agreement was entered into as per Ext.P1 for the completion of the construction of the building and thus for all purposes, it is a building constructed as per the agreement. It appears, the District Collector refused to look into the agreement since the original of the same was not produced. It is also stated in the order that the petitioner did not make available the records. Learned counsel for the petitioner has made available the original of the agreement for perusal. I do not think that this Court should go into the disputed questions of fact involved in the case because these documents are to be made available before the District Collector. I quash Ext.P8. There will be a direction to the third respondent to consider the matter afresh, advert to the contentions taken by the petitioner referring to the materials and WP NO.9247/04 2 if necessary, conduct appropriate enquiry and pass orders in the matter. The needful shall be done within a period of four months from the date of production of a copy of the judgment. There shall be no recovery till such time. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
