Munazir & Others v. State Of U.P. & Others - SPECIAL APPEAL No. 685 of 2005  RD-AH 1428 (27 May 2005)
Court No. 32
Special Appeal No. 685 of 2005
Munazir and others v. State of U.P. & others
Hon.S.Rafat Alam J.
Hon. Vikram Nath J.
This appeal arises against the order of learned single Judge dated 16.5.2005 in Writ Petition No. 38187 of 2005.
We have heard Sri Raj Kumar Khanna learned counsel for the appellant and Sri Ran Vijai Singh learned counsel appearing for the respondents.
It appears that the petitioner/appellants have made an application before the Nirvachak Registry Karan Adhikari/ Tahsildar, Tahsil Moradabad, District Moradabad respondent no.3 for adding their names in the voter list. When the same was not decided, they represented to the District Magistrate, Moradabad (respondent 2). However when no response was received from respondent 2 also, they approached this Court by filing aforesaid writ petition which was dismissed by learned single Judge on the ground that the petitioner appellant has a remedy of filing an appeal under Rule 21 A (5) of U.P. Panchayat Raj (Registration of Electors) Rules, 1994. It is contended that in fact there was no occasion for the appellant to prefer an appeal because no final decision has been taken either by the respondent no.3 or by respondent no.2 nor their requests were refused for adding their names in the voter list.
Sri Ran Vijai Singh learned Standing Counsel fairly submitted that if the appellant has applied for adding their names in the voter list within time schedule as notified by State Government, the same would be disposed off in accordance with law.
We therefore, modify the order of learned single Judge to the extent that the representation of the appellant dated 28.4.2005 lying before the respondent no.2 shall be considered and disposed of expeditiously within six weeks, provided the same was filed within the time as notified by the State Government.
This appeal and the writ petition are accordingly disposed off in terms of this order
It is made clear that our order may not be considered so as to express any opinion on the merit of the claim of the petitioner regarding recording of the names in the voter list and the decision may be taken by the concerned authority strictly in accordance with law.
