(Per : HONOURABLE THE CHIEF JUSTICE MR. S.J. MUKHOPADHAYA) The Development Commissioner passed the order on 12th May 2006 in exercise of the powers conferred under Section 253 of the Gujarat Panchayat Act, 1993 for dissolution of the Taluka Panchayat, Lathi on the ground that the budget estimate was not approved before 31st March 2006 and reasons for not passing such budget are not justifiable. At the instance of the respondents, the learned Single Judge by order dated 13th July 2006 while set aside the order dated 19th May 2006 on the ground that said order was violative of principles of natural justice, directed the Development Commissioner to reconsider the matter in light of the observations made by the Court in the said judgment. An Administrator was allowed to continue to look after the administration of the Taluka Panchayat till then.
Now, more than four years having been passed and as new members of the Panchayat have been elected, nothing subsists in these appeals. The question raised is not required to be answered in the present case.
All the Appeals and Civil Applications stand disposed of.
