J.M.JAMES, J.W.P.(C). 8072/2006 Dated this the 11th day of January, 2007
The writ petitioners are defaulters to the first respondent, Urban Co-operative Bank. They had been proceeded against, as an amount of Rs.8,80,033/- is due as on 24.5.2006, the date of filing of the counter by the first respondent.
2. This writ petition was filed on 16.3.2006. After ordering notice, an interim stay for three months was granted, on condition of the petitioner remitting an amount of Rs.1,50,000/- on or before 20.3.2006 and also directed to make further remittance of Rs.1,00,000/- each, on 30.4.2006 and on 30.5.2006.
3. The learned counsel for the first respondent submits that no amount had so far been paid. Through counter, the counsel also brought to my notice that the writ petitioners had preferred different writ petitions in the earlier occasions and after obtaining the interim W.P.(C).8072/2006 2 orders, the same had not been complied with whenever the first respondent opposed the continuance of the stay granted.
4. When this writ petition came up for consideration, the learned counsel for the petitioners submits that the petition is not pressed. It was on that occasion, the counsel for the first respondent brought to my notice that the petitioner had preferred W.P.(C). No.29587/2004. An interim stay was granted on 8.10.2004, with a direction to remit Rs.75,000/-. But the same had not been remitted so far, submits the counsel. Similarly another writ petition, W.P.(C). 29931/2005, was filed after suppressing the filing of the earlier writ petition. In that petition also, an interim stay was granted on 25.10.2005. But the same had not been complied with. Therefore, after hearing all concerned, the learned single Judge of this Court had dismissed the said writ petition on 4.1.2006. The counsel submits that though an interim order had been obtained in this writ petition as well, no amount had so far been W.P.(C).8072/2006 3 paid. The counsel for the first respondent, therefore, submits that a direction may be issued to the writ petitioners to pay back the entire amount due from them, as the One Time Settlement allowed was also not availed off by them.
5. In the above facts situation, I find there is no point that arises for consideration, in this writ petition. The writ petitioners are directed to approach the first respondent, bank, and either pay the amount due to the first respondent or settle the matter as per the law, without unnecessarily preferring the writ petitions repeatedly. However in the circumstances of this case, I am not imposing any cost on the writ petitioners. The writ petition is disposed of as above. J.M.JAMES
