Shankar v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 3539 of 2006  RD-AH 1755 (23 January 2006)
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No.3539 of 2006
Shanker & Ors.
State of U.P. & Ors.
Hon'ble Dr. B.S. Chauhan, J.
Hon'ble Shishir Kumar, J.
This writ petition has been filed for a direction to the respondents to restore possession in favour of the petitioners over the land which had been allotted to them by giving pattas as the said land had been declared surplus under the provisions of U.P. Imposition of Ceiling on Land Holdings Act, 1960.
The facts and circumstances giving rise to this case are that the present petitioners had been given patta of the land which had been declared surplus under the provisions of the aforesaid Act. They had been put in possession but had subsequently been dispossessed by the persons in whose favour the land had been transferred by the tenure holders. Therefore, learned counsel for the petitioners prays that this Court should issue direction to the respondent authorities to restore possession.
Petitioners, for the reasons best known to them, have not filed copies of the patta nor there is anything on record to show that they had been put in possession. Petitioners have not mentioned any date on which they had been dispossessed nor they have explained as to who had dispossessed them and as to why the petitioners remained silent at the time of their dispossession. The persons who claim to be in possession of the land in dispute are not parties before us.
Petition is based on vague pleadings without any document to substantiate the said vague pleadings. In such a fact situation, we are not in a position to interfere in the matter. Petition is accordingly dismissed.
