The facts of the case are that the accommodation in dispute being flat no.6 Ali Manjil, Civil Lines, Moradabad belongs to the petitioner and the tenant Sri Siddiqui was in occupation of the same. The petitioner had filed an application for release of the accommodation u/s 16(1)(a) of U.P.Act No.XIII of 1972 which was rejected by the Rent Control & Eviction Officer who directed to proceed to declare the vacancy. However, the petitioner filed an appeal u/s 18 of the Act being appeal no.253 of 1976 which was allowed by the Addl.District Judge, Moradabad. It is stated that inspite of aforesaid facts the respondent no.2 had filed an application for allotment of the premises in his favour. The petitioner had filed his objection dated 6.6.1994 and brought the fact of release of accommodation in his favour to the notice of the Rent Control & Eviction Officer. Upon the said application, a report was called for from the Rent Control Inspector which was submitted on 10.6.1994. Inspite of aforesaid facts a vacancy has been declared by the impugned order on the same day i.e. 10.6.1994 without considering the objection of the petitioner.

affidavit with respect to release of the accommodation in favour of the petitioner by the appellate court stands uncontroverted. In view of aforesaid facts, the impugned order cannot be sustained. The impugned order dated 10.6.1994 is quashed.
The writ petition stands allowed. No order is passed as to costs.
