The petitioners who are stage carriage operators operating on the
route Kottayam – Ambayithode, with stage carriages bearing registration Nos.
KL-5/AA 8474 and KL 5/T 3699, filed this writ petition on being aggrieved by the
inaction on the part of the respondents in considering their requests for renewal
of permits based on their applications and also non-consideration of their
requests for conversion of the concerned services as `Super Express Service”.
According to the petitioners, the route length concerned is in excess of 140 Kms.
Therefore, in terms of amendment to Rule 2 as Rule 2(ub) the petitioners have
submitted Ext.P1 application requesting for conversion of their services as
`Super Express Service’, as well. However, the said application submitted by
the petitioners is still pending consideration before the first respondent. In the
said circumstances, without making any observation as to the merits of the
contentions raised by the petitioners this writ petition is disposed of with a
direction to the first respondent to consider Ext.P1 application in accordance with
law, expeditiously, at any rate within a period of two months from the date of
receipt of a copy of this judgment.
