Heard learned counsel for the parties and perused the record.
Learned counsel for the petitioner stated that the petitioner is entitled to receive Rs. 11,11,785/- for repairing the road measuring 4.50 Kms. but the petitioner has been paid only Rs. 8,62,903/-.
Per contra, learned Standing Counsel, after seeking instructions in the matter, has stated that the petitioner has repaired road measuring 3.50 Kms. only, as such, the petitioner was paid deficient amount which was also accepted by the petitioner without raising any hue and cry.
Learned counsel for the petitioner rebutted the contention so made by the learned Standing Counsel appearing on behalf of the State.
Be that as it may. Disputed questions of fact are involved in the present matter which cannot be adjudicated upon by this Court in exercise of its powers conferred under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. However, it is open for the petitioners to seek appropriate remedy before the appropriate forum, if so advised, in common law courts or any other forum in accordance with law.
With this observation, this writ petition stands disposed of.
