Jai Prakash Singh v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 36300 of 2004  RD-AH 3567 (26 September 2005)
Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing on behalf of the respondents. Despite time having been granted, no counter affidavit has yet been filed.
The petitioner was granted two arms licenses in the year 1983 which were renewed from time to time. Thereafter on 6.5.2003 the petitioner deposited the usual license fee of Rs.170/- each for renewal of the license of his revolver and the rifle. It has been alleged that the concerned Police has also recommended for the renewal of his arms licenses but despite the petitioner having filed several representations/applications in this regard, the Respondent no.2 District Magistrate, Azamgarh has not passed any order granting renewal of the arms licenses or refusing to renew the same. In such circumstances the petitioner has approached this Court by way of filing this writ petition praying for a direction in the nature of mandamus commanding the respondents to renew the arms licenses of the petitioner regarding which applications are already pending.
Having heard learned counsel for the parties and considering the facts and circumstances of this case, this writ petition is disposed of with the direction that in case if the petitioner files a comprehensive representation with regard to renewal of his licenses along with a certified copy of this order before District Magistrate, Azamgarh, Respondent no.2, the same shall be considered and decided by the said respondent along with the pending applications of the petitioner for renewal of his arms licenses, in accordance with law, by a speaking order within six weeks of filing of such representation.
With the aforesaid observation/direction this writ petition is disposed of. No order as to cost.
