pursuance of notice issued by this Court, Mr.Yogesh Thakkar, learned
advocate appeared for the opponents.
APP Mr.Pujari appearing for the applicant has submitted that due to
administrative reasons, the afore-stated delay had been caused in
filing the appeal. He has submitted that along with the certified
copy of the judgment, copies of relevant record had been forwarded by
the Public Prosecutor, Panchmahals District to the Legal Department,
and in the Legal Department several officers
had examined whether an appeal should be filed. In the said process,
the afore-stated delay had been caused. He has further submitted
that there was no lethargy or carelessness on the part of the
officers who had examined the case but only on account of
afore-stated administrative reasons, the delay had been caused. He
has prayed that in the interest of justice, the afore-stated delay
may kindly be condoned.
the other hand, learned advocate Mr.Thakkar has submitted that the
Government authorities ought to have acted promptly because the
officers of the Legal Department very well knew about the period of
limitation. He has, therefore, submitted that the delay should not
have heard the learned advocates and have also gone through the
contents of the application stating the reasons for which the delay
had been caused. In our opinion, the case has been made out for
condonation of the delay and, therefore, we condone the delay.
application stands disposed of as granted. The delay is condoned.
Rule is made absolute.
