Manfool and others
State of U. P. through Collector Etah and others
Hon'ble Krishna Murari, J.
Heard Sri Arvind Singh, learned counsel for the petitioners.
Vide order passed on 11th March, 2005 in Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 16491 of 2005 filed by the petitioner, an interim mandamus was issued directing respondent no. 3, Tehsildar Kasganj, District Etah to implement the order dated 3.2.2000 passed by Consolidation Officer within a period of six weeks from the date of production of certified copy of the order before him or show cause by filing counter affidavit. It is contended that in pursuance to the order passed by this Court, order dated 3.2.2000 was implemented and the names of the petitioners were recorded in the revenue record. Subsequently, Gaon Sabha moved an application for recalling the order on the ground that the name of the petitioners were recorded without hearing Gaon Sabha and the State Government. On the said application, an order was passed staying the effect and operation of the order dated 3.2.2000 which has been challenged by the petitioner in the present writ petition.
Order dated 3.2.2000 was passed in proceedings under Rule 109-A of the U. P. Consolidation of Holdings Act initiated by the petitioners. A perusal of the order indicates that Gaon Sabha was heard and the objections filed on its behalf were considered. However, even after passing of the said order when names of the petitioners were not being record in revenue record, they had approached this Court by filing earlier writ petition. The authorities instead of showing cause chose to comply with interim mandamus and directed named of the petitioners to be recorded. Thereafter, Gaon Sabha moved an application for recall of the order dated 3.2.2000 on the ground that the said order was an exparte order.
Considering the facts and circumstances, this writ petition is disposed of with the direction to the Consolidation Officer, Etah to decide restoration application filed by Gaon Sabha in accordance with law within a period of two months from the date of presentation of a certified copy of this orders before him. For a period of two months or till the disposal of the restoration application, whichever is earlier, parties shall maintain status quo.
