Special Appeal (Defective) No. 649 of 2007
Hans Raj Singh vs. Union of India and another
Hon'ble Rakesh Tiwari,J
Date: October 31, 2007
1. Heard the appellant in person.
2. The appeal is filed some nine years and 16 days much beyond the period of limitation for filing the appeal. Application is moved for condonation of delay in filing the appeal.
3. Mr. Ashok Singh, learned counsel, appearing for the Union of India, opposes the application for condonation of delay. He points out that the original order of discharge of the appellant from the Defence Service was passed way back in the year 1963-64. He filed the writ petition some thirty years thereafter in the year 1996 claiming disability pension. Learned Single Judge went through the counter affidavit filed by the respondents and noted that the disability of the petitioner/appellant was neither attributable to nor aggravated by the Air Force Service and, therefore, rejected the application. Mr. Ashok Singh, submitted that there is no reason to condone the delay of over nine years. There is no explanation as such as to how the delay should be condoned.
4. We accept the objection of Mr. Ashok Singh. The application for condonation of delay is rejected. There is otherwise nothing on merits in the appeal. The appeal will stand dismissed consequently.
RK. (Chief Justice)
