Hon'ble Krishna Murari, J.
Heard Sri Narsingh Dixit, learned counsel for the petitioners.
Challenge in this writ petition has been made to the order dated 3rd July 2006 passed by the District Magistrate/ District Deputy Director of Consolidation, Deoria dismissing the transfer application moved by the petitioners for transfer of the proceedings of revision from the Court of Deputy Director of Consolidation to some other Court of competent jurisdiction.
The alleged ground on which the transfer was sought, was that they had seen the respondents and their counsel talking to the Deputy Director of Consolidation in his chamber. The respondent no. 2 dismissed the transfer application on the ground that there is no material on record to substantiate the allegation made in the transfer application. Even before this Court except for making bald allegation no material has been brought on record to substantiate the allegations.
The transfer of proceedings from a Court of competent jurisdiction cannot be ordered so lightly merely on making allegation by a party seeking transfer without there being any material on record. If the transfer applications are allowed on mere asking of a party without there being any material on record, it will not only affect the moral of the Subordinate Court but will also open flood gate of transfer applications resulting into chaos.
In absence of any material on record, the respondent no. 2 has rightly rejected the transfer application filed by the petitioners. There appears to be no illegality in the impugned order.
The writ petition accordingly fails, and is dismissed.
