The Hon'ble MR. Justice KURIAN JOSEPH
O R D E RKURIAN JOSEPH J. W.P(C)No.19695 of 2005
Dated this the 14th day of February, 2007
The writ petition is filed with the following prayer:-
(i) issue a writ in the nature of mandamus or any other appropriate writ, direction or order commanding the respondents to immediately finalise the amounts payable to the petitioner as per Ext.P1 agreement and effect actual payment of the same without unnecessary delay. In the statement filed on behalf of the 3rd respondent the stand taken is that only due to non-co-operation of the petitioner steps could not be taken. Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the required steps have been taken including submission of the final bill before the second respondent. There will be a direction to the second respondent to look into the grievance of the petitioner with notice to him and take appropriate action in accordance with law to settle the grievance of the petitioner and disburse the eligible amounts within a period of three months from the date of production of a copy of this judgment. It is made clear that in respect of dispute, if any, surviving after the consideration of the matter by the second respondent including that of W.P(C)NO.19695/2005 interest, it will be open to the petitioner to approach the civil court, in which event the time taken by the petitioner for prosecuting this writ petition shall be excluded from the period of limitation. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
