Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 41082 of 06
Nandu & others........Petitioners
Deputy Director of Consolidation, Ghazipur
Hon'ble Krishna Murari, J.
Heard Sri Swaraj Prakash, learned counsel for the petitioners and Sri Ranjit Asthana, Advocate appearing for respondents no. 3, 4 and 5.
During the chak allotment proceedings, two appeals were filed before the Settlement Officer Consolidation, one by petitioners and other by the contesting respondents. Against the orders passed by the appellate Court, two revisions were filed. The revision filed by the contesting respondents was numbered as revision no. 284 whereas the revision filed by the petitioners was numbered as revision no. 797/05-06. The revision filed by the contesting respondents was decided vide order dated 26.6.2006 passed by respondent no. 1, which has been impugned in the present writ petition.
It has been urged by the learned counsel for the petitioners that since the dispute between the parties who are co-sharers, was with regard to allotment of chak appropriately, both the revisions ought to have been decided together by the Deputy Director of Consolidation. However, the revision of the contesting respondents was decided illegally whereas the revision of the petitioners has been left untouched virtually rendering it infructuous.
Learned counsel appearing for the contesting respondents concedes to the point that both the revisions ought to have been decided together by the Deputy Director of Consolidation.
Considering the aforesaid facts, the impugned order dated 26.6.2006 passed by the Deputy Director of Consolidation, Gorakhpur in Revision No. 284 allowing the revision filed by the contesting respondents, is hereby quashed. The writ petition stands allowed. The matter is remanded back to the Deputy Director of Consolidation to consolidate both the revisions filed by the petitioners as well as contesting respondents and to decide them together in accordance with law expeditiously.
