CORAM : HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE SURYA KANT


Present : Mr. A. K. Chopra, Senior Advocate with
          Mr. Ashish Chopra, Advocate,
          for the petitioner.


SURYA KANT, J. (ORAL)

In this Civil Writ Petition, the petitioner-Improvement

Trust seeks quashing of the order dated May 23, 2007 (Annexure

P-5) passed by the State Consumer Disputes Redressal

Commission, Punjab, as well as, order dated 02.04.2008

(Annexure P-7) passed by the National Consumer Disputes

Redressal Commission, New Delhi.

During the course of hearing, learned Senior counsel

appearing for the petitioner-Improvement Trust submits that the

facts of the present case are totally distinguishable from the facts

in Shakuntla Devi’s case wherein the order passed by the

National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission was upheld

by the Hon’ble Supreme Court. Various contentions have also

been raised to distinguish the present case from Shakuntla

Devi’s case.

C.W.P NO. 1528 OF 2009 -2-

Learned counsel further submits that since the counsel

on behalf of the petitioner-Trust has inadvertently made a

concession that he had nothing further to say in view of the order

passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Shakuntla Devi’s

case, the petitioner-Trust may be permitted to withdraw this

petition with liberty to approach the National Consumer Disputes

Redressal Commission for recall/modification of the order dated

02.04.2008 (Annexure P-7).

As prayed for, the petition is dismissed as withdrawn

with liberty to the petitioner-Trust to approach the National

Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission for recall/modification

of the order dated 02.04.2008 and/or seek interim relief.

Copy of this order be given dasti on payment of usual

charges.
