VINOD S. BHARDWAJ, J. (ORAL)

Prayer in the present petition is for directing the respondents to

release the due payment of Rs.74,79,858/- qua the works executed by the

petitioner, alongwith interest @ 12% per annum.

It has been averred in the petition that the petitioner has executed

the allotted work (as mentioned in paragraph No.2 of the petition) to the

satisfaction of the respondent-Authorities, notwithstanding the same, the

outstanding amount has not been released till date. A perusal of file further

shows that with regard to his grievance, the petitioner has served two separate

legal notices dated 09.01.2023 (Annexure P-3 colly.) upon respondent No.3 qua

both the works allotted to the petitioner, however, no action has been taken

thereupon till date.

Even though there is no representation on behalf of the parties

today, however, in view of the order which this Court proposes to pass, the

issuance of notice to the respondents is dispensed with at this stage.

CWP-4162-2024                               -2-               2024:PHHC:025435


Accordingly, it would be appropriate and in the fitness of things if

respondent No.3- Executive Officer, Municipal Council, Sunam, District

Sangrur is directed to look into the legal notices dated 09.01.2023 (Annexure P-

3 colly.) and decide the same within a time bound manner. Moreover, no

prejudice would be caused to either of the parties, in case the present petition is

disposed of in above terms.

Accordingly, in view of the above and without commenting

anything on the merits of the case, the present petition is disposed of while

directing respondent No.3 to consider and decide the legal notices dated

09.01.2023 (Annexure P-3 colly.) by passing a reasoned and speaking order(s)

after affording an opportunity of hearing to the respective parties within a

period of three months of the receipt of certified copy of this order.

Needless to mention that upon considering the said legal notices, if

any amount is found due and payable to the petitioner, the same shall be

disbursed in favour of the petitioner within a further period of three months.

Petition stands disposed of accordingly.
