Civil Misc. Writ petition No.17128 of 2002
Vinod Kumar Ex Constable .............................Petitioner
Central Reserve Police Force,
New Delhi & others ............Respondents
Heard I.P.Yadav, learned counsel for the petitioner, Sri Ravi Prakash Srivastava, learned additional standing counsel-Union of India and perused the record. Counter and rejoinder affidavits have been exchanged
A preliminary objection has been raised that this writ petition is not maintainable before this court for want of jurisdiction, as the cause of action arose at New Delhi and the appeal was filed at Chennai. No cause of action wholly or on a part accrued in the State of U.P. Some communication of the order in between the respondents and the petitioner does not call for the jurisdiction of this court. As per the settled law, learned counsel has relied upon the judgment passed by a full Bench of this Court in the case of Rajendra Kumar Mishra Vs. Union of India and others, reported in (2005) 1 UPLBEC 108
Learned counsel for the petitioner claims jurisdiction of the Court only on the ground of residence and communication of the impugned order and states that the aforesaid judgment has come in the year, 2005, whereas this writ petition had been filed in the year, 2002. In my view this argument of the learned counsel for the petitioner does not hold good, since it is settled law that the judgment and decision of the court, shall apply retrospectively if not specifically mentioned therein to be applicable prospectively and are applicable for all times unless and until set aside or overruled by higher court.
In this view of the matter, this writ petition being beyond the territorial jurisdiction of this court, is not maintainable and is dismissed accordingly. No order as to costs.
