P.RAMAKRISHNAM RAJU,PRESIDENT -
(1.) THIS is an
application to condone the delay of 115 days in filing the appeal. What
is stated in the petitioners affidavit is that the impugned order was
passed on 28.10.2002. Though the copy was made ready on 9.12.2002 the
same was not received by the petitioner. Hence their Counsel obtained
certified copy on 11.2.2002 and the appeal was accordingly filed on
(2.) We are not convinced with this explanation. The order copy was despatched by the District Forum under Dis. No. 4417 on 9.12.2002 to all
the parties. It is not stated by the petitioner as to what has happened
to the said order copy despatched to him, namely whether it is lost in
transit or whether it is returned for want of correct address. In the
absence of any averment in this regard we are of the opinion that the
order copy is received by the petitioner.
(3.) ACCORDING to the petitioner, certified copy was obtained by his Counsel on 11.2.2003 and sent the same to the petitioner and others on
13.2.2003. But the appeal was filed on 2.5.2003. No explanation is forthcoming why the appeal could not be filed immediately on receipt of
the copy on 13.2.2003 and why the petitioner waited to file the appeal
till 2.5.2003. For this delay also there is no convincing explanation.
Hence we are of the view that this inordinate delay of 115 days in filing
the appeal cannot be condoned. The petition is devoid of merits and is
Even otherwise there are no merits in the appeal. The opposite parties in C.D. No. 117/2002 on the file of the District Forum,
Visakhapatnam are the appellants.;
