Union of India & Ors.
Hon'ble Dr. B.S. Chauhan, J.
Hon'ble Dilip Gupta, J.
Pursuant to an advertisement issued by the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (hereinafter called the ''IOC'), for allotment of retail outlet in various places in the States of Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal including Martinganj, District Azamgarh, the petitioner submitted an application claiming himself to be a physically disabled person. He was also called for interview on 20.04.2005. The contention of the petitioner is that the respondent no.5, Smt. Geeta Tewari was wrongly awarded higher marks than the petitioner. It has also been stated in the petition that for the said purpose, the petitioner filed a representation dated 18.06.2005 but no order has been passed till date on the said representation.
We have heard Shri B.N. Singh, learned counsel for the petitioner and Shri Sheoram Singh for private respondent no.5 and Shri Tarun Verma, learned counsel appearing for respondents no. 2,3 and 4.
Shri B.N. Singh, learned counsel for the petitioner further submits that the petitioner may be permitted to file a fresh representation.
Learned counsel appearing for the IOC has submitted that if such a representation is filed by the petitioner before the Managing Director of the IOC, it shall be decided expeditiously preferably within a period of six weeks from the date a certified copy of this order is produced by the petitioner before the said officer after giving opportunity of hearing to the petitioner and respondent no.5 Smt. Geeta Tewari.
Such being the position, we dispose of this writ petition with a direction that in case the petitioner files a representation within a period of 10 days from today before the Managing Director of the IOC, the same shall be decided in accordance with law after giving opportunity of hearing all the parties concerned including the respondent no.5, within a period of six weeks thereafter by a speaking and reasoned order.
