1. The grievance, which is voiced in the present Special Civil Application, is that though two representations/complaints dated 10/06/2009 and 11/01/2010 have been made by the petitioners to respondent no.1 alleging unauthorised construction being carried out by respondent no. 4 on the land bearing Final Plot No. 78/A of Town Planning Scheme No. 63 (Vadod), the same has not been responded at all and no decision has been taken on the said representations/complaints
2. In view of the above, without expressing any opinion on merits with respect to the alleged construction on Final Plot No. 78/A of Town Planning Scheme No. 63(Vadod) carried out and/or being carried by respondent no. 4, concerned respondents, more particularly, respondent no. 1 i.e. the Commissioner, Surat Municipal Corporation is hereby directed to look into the representations/complaints of the petitioners dated 10/06/2009 and 11/01/2010 (Annexure - H and I to the petition) and take appropriate decision on the same in accordance with law on its own merits and take appropriate steps at the earliest but not later than six weeks from the date of receipt of the present order and communicate the outcome of the same to the petitioners. Any lapse on the part of the appropriate authority, in not taking any decision on the aforesaid representations/complaints in accordance with law on its own merits, shall be viewed very seriously.
3. With this, the present Special Civil Application is disposed of. Direct service is permitted.
