Suspension of CHA License - Appointment of enquiry officer - Appellant contends that without even issuing show cause notice, within the period of limitation, an enquiry officer had, straightway, been appointed - Held that:- The objection of the order of suspension is completely different from the object of issuance of the show cause notice. The Regulations in this regard are very clear. Under the sub-regulation (2) of Regulation 20, a time limit of 15 days is fixed for suspending the licence from the date of receipt of a report. Under sub-regulation (3), an opportunity of hearing should be granted to the licensee within 15 days from the date of suspension. This opportunity is only in respect of suspension. The Regulation 20 also deals only with suspension. - Department appears to have taken advantage of the expressions 'suspension' appearing under Regulation 20 as well as Regulation 22. The power to order suspension under Regulation 20 is in cases where further proceedings are sought to be initiated. The suspension contemplated under Regulation 22 is by way of penalty after the enquiry. The distinction between two Regulations is that one is a suspension pending enquiry and the other is a suspension by way of penalty. - Decided against Revenue.
