Shiv Pratap v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 47666 of 2006  RD-AH 19834 (22 November 2006)
Hon.Shishir Kumar, J.
We have heard learned counsel for the petitioner Sri Akhilesh Singh and learned Standing Counsel for the respondents.
The petitioner was the highest bidder in the auction which had been held on 15.05.2006. According to the condition, the petitioner was to deposit ¼ of the total auction money on the same day i.e. 15.5.2006. The petitioner has deposited the said amount but for the rest amount, which was to be deposited by the petitioner within 15 days from the date of auction has not been deposited by the petitioner. The petitioner himself has admitted this fact that due to illness he could not deposit the amount in time. After recovery the petitioner with a medical certificate has submitted an application to accept the balance amount according to the conditions of the auction dated 15.5.2006 but the respondents have cancelled the auction and are going for re- auction and the amount deposited by the petitioner has been forfeited.
From the perusal of the record it is clear that there is no dispute that the petitioner was the highest bidder and had deposited one-fourth amount within time but the petitioner has not fulfilled the other relevant conditions of the auction dated 15.5.2006.
In view of the aforesaid fact, as the petitioner is a defaulter which is admitted by the petitioner that he could not deposit the amount within time, as such, we are not inclined to interfere while exercising the jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
The writ petition is hereby dismissed.
There shall be no order as to costs.
