P.RAMAKRISHNAM RAJU,PRESIDENT -
(1.) THIS is an
application to condone the delay of 34 days in filing the appeal. What is
stated in the petitioners affidavit is that the copy of the impugned
order was received by the petitioner on 7.4.2003. Since the Courts were
closed for summer vacation the petitioner could not obtain legal opinion
for filing the appeal in time. Hence there is a delay of 34 days in
filing the appeal.
(2.) WE cannot accept this explanation. Merely because some Courts are closed for summer vacation there is no impediment for the petitioner
to obtain legal opinion from an Advocate. It is not even stated that the
Counsel from whom opinion is sought for is out of station. Closure of
Courts for vacation has nothing to do with obtaining legal opinion from a
Counsel. Hence this application is devoid of merits and is accordingly
(3.) EVEN otherwise there are no merits in this appeal.
The first opposite party in CD No. 72/2001 on the file of District Forum -II, Vijayawada, Krishna District is the appellant.;
