J U D G M E N T
The prayer made in this writ petition is to quash Ext.P1, a communication issued by the first respondent Panchayat, declining permission to the petitioner for the installation of a cellular mobile tower on the ground that objection has been raised by the residents in the locality. This issue has already been considered by this court in various cases including Reliance Infocomm v. Chemancherry Grama Panchayat (2006(4) KLT 695) and WP(C) No.179/06, the judgment of which is produced as Ext.P2. In these judgments, it has been clarified that an application as made by the petitioner is in compliance with the statutory provisions governing the same, the objections raised by the residents of the locality would be irrelevant while considering the same.
2. In the circumstances stated above, I quash Ext.P1 and direct the respondent Panchayat to reconsider the application made by the petitioner in the light of the decisions referred above WPC 14122/2007 and the statutory provisions governing the same. A decision in this regard shall be passed as expeditiously as possible, at any rate within one month from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment.
3. Petitioner is directed to produce a copy of this judgment before the respondent for compliance. Writ petition is disposed of as above.
