(C) No. 17710 of 2009 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dated, this the 25th day of June, 2009 JUDGMENT
Ext.P1 order passed by the first respondent has already been
subjected to challenge by filing Ext.P2 appeal accompanied with Ext.P3
petition for stay and the said proceedings are pending consideration
before the second respondent. The case of the petitioner is that, it is
without any regard to the pendency of the above proceedings that the
respondents are proceeding with the coercive steps under the Kerala
Revenue Recovery Act, as evident from Ext.P4 notice, which hence is
sought to be intercepted by this Court.
2. Heard the learned Government Pleader as well.
Considering the facts and figures, the second respondent is
hereby directed to consider and pass appropriate orders on Ext.P2
appeal and Ext. P3 petition for stay in accordance with law, as
expeditiously as possible. However, it is made clear that till
appropriate orders are passed on Ext.P3 petition for stay, all further
coercive proceedings pursuant to Ext.P4, stated as being pursued
against the petitioner, shall be kept in abeyance.
The Writ Petition is disposed of accordingly.
