HIGH COURT OF BOMBAY
Decided on November 07,2017

Kiran Khushali Mamlekar Appellant
VERSUS
State Of Goa Through Chief Secretary, Secretariat, Porvorim-Goa Respondents

JUDGEMENT

C.V. Bhadang, J. - (1.) Rule, made returnable forthwith. Shri Faldessai, the learned Additional Government Advocate waives service for the respondents. Heard finally by consent of parties.
(2.) This petition has to succeed on a short count. The petitioner is challenging the order dated 17/10/2017, passed by the second respondent, thereby cancelling the licence granted to the petitioner to ply a vehicle in the Mahaveer National Park, leading to Doodhsagar Falls.
(3.) The matter had come up earlier before this Court in W.P. No.476/2017. The challenge in the said petition was to the order of cancellation of the licence then passed on the ground that the order of cancellation was not preceded by any show cause notice or any opportunity of hearing. The said petition was disposed of by this Court by a judgment and order dated 17/05/2017, in which the second respondent was directed to grant an opportunity of oral hearing to the petitioner on 25/05/2017 and then decide the matter afresh. It appears that after the disposal of the said petition, the petitioner filed her reply on 24/05/2017. It is, however, not disputed on behalf of the respondents that no opportunity of oral hearing was granted to the petitioner on 25/05/2017 or at any time thereafter before passing of the impugned order. It can, thus, be seen that the impugned order is passed in breach of the directions as contained in the judgment and order dated 17/05/2017 in W.P. No.476/2017.;
