C.N.RAMACHANDRAN NAIR, J.WP(C) No. 18486 of 2005
Dated, this the 29th day of March, 2007
J U D G M E N T
Heard the counsel for the KSRTC and Adv. Shri.O.D.Sivadas appearing for the 2nd respondent, whose name was not shown in the list and the learned Govt. Pleader appearing for 1st respondent.
2. KSRTC is challenging Ext.P6 order on the ground of scheme violation. However on going through Ext.P6 I find the issue decided by the STAT is only with regard to 2nd respondent's entitlement for replacement of vehicle, before commencement of operation, in respect of the vehicle for which permit was granted. Counsel for the 2nd respondent rightly pointed out that when vehicle is produced pursuant to grant of permit, Rule 159(2) is satisfied and it is open to the operator to substitute the vehicle and commence the operation with another one after the grant but before the issue of permit. Since the issue raised by KSRTC has not considered by the STAT, it does not arise from that order and therefore, challenge against Ext.P6 order is not maintainable. So far as KSRTC's contention is concerned, the RTA has not W.P.(C)No. 18486/2005 -Page numbers- considered their objection while granting permit. I feel the question therefore should be raised through a revision before the STAT. This WP(C) is accordingly dismissed.
