Smt. Heerawati Devi & Anr.
State of U.P. & Ors.
Hon'ble Dr. B.S. Chauhan, J.
Hon'ble Dilip Gupta, J.
This writ petition has been filed raising the grievance that the respondent no.3 had earlier been the Pradhan and the respondent no.4 was the Village Panchayat Development Officer of the Gram Sabha concerned. The petitioners are newly elected office bearers of the Gram Panchayat. There are certain disputes as to whether amount in the account of Gram Sabha which was in the control of respondents no.3 and 4, has been handed over to the newly incumbent of the Gram Sabha. In this respect, the petitioners have filed a representation before the respondent no.2, Sub Divisional Magistrate, Ghorawal, District Sonbhadra. However, no action has been taken on the said representation.
After hearing Shri S.C. Varma, learned counsel for the petitioners and the learned Standing Counsel for respondents no. 1 and 2, and Shri M.C. Chaturvedi for respondent no.3, we dispose of this writ petition with a direction to the respondent no.1 that in case petitioners file a representation giving detail of the amount not handed over to the new incumbent of the Gram Sabha, he shall take appropriate action and pass appropriate orders either himself or authorise any other authority so that the matter may be resolved finally but that course must be completed within a period of four weeks after giving opportunity of hearing to respondents no. 3 and 4.
A copy of this order may be given to learned counsel for the parties on payment of usual charges by tomorrow.
