Whether the statement made by the officer of the petitioner was without any power or authority and does not bind the petitioner? - HELD THAT:- The petitioners must be made to pay for the judicial time they have consumed but seeing our approach in the earlier matter, learned senior counsel himself was circumspect from beginning and thus, it is considered appropriate to only impose Rs.10,000/- as costs on the State Government for having approached this Court. The cost be recovered from the officer who took such a decision to come to this Court without taking any action against the officers and that too belatedly or responsible for the delay.
The costs be deposited with the Mediation and Conciliation Project Committee within a period of four weeks and a certificate of recovery be filed in this Court within the same period of time.
SLP dismissed on the ground of delay.
