Pavitra Gautam v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 70526 of 2005  RD-AH 5799 (16 November 2005)
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 70526 of 2005
Pavitra Gautam versus State of U.P. & others
Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing on behalf of the respondents. With consent of the learned counsel for the parties this writ petition is being disposed of without calling for a counter affidavit.
The father of the petitioner possessed a gun license which was valid up to 31.7.2005. On 15.8.2002 the father of the petitioner died. Thereafter on 17.9.2002 the petitioner deposited the gun. On 18.9.2002 the petitioner applied for a gun license which application was registered at serial no. 92. However, it is contended that the said application of the petitioner was misplaced. Thus the petitioner filed another application for grant of a gun license on 23.2.2005 which has been registered at serial no. 127. The contention of the petitioner is that despite the petitioner having completed all the formalities from his side and even though he has submitted several reminders before the respondent-authorities, no decision has yet been taken on his application for grant of gun license.
Having heard learned counsel for the parties and considering the facts and circumstances of this case, this writ petition is finally disposed of with the direction that the pending application of the petitioner, filed on 23.2.2005 before the Respondent no.2 for grant of gun license, shall be considered and appropriate orders be passed by the Respondent no.2, in accordance with law, within a period of two months from the date of filing of a certified copy of this order before him.
With the aforesaid direction this writ petition is disposed of. No order as to cost.
