Telangana HC refuses to intervene in GO 111 matter

In a PIL challenging the government’s stance on GO 111, a two-judge panel from the Telangana High Court consisting of Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice C V Bhasker Reddy on Tuesday refused to issue an interim order.

In GO 69, the government sought to remove restrictions imposed under an earlier order prohibiting various developments within the radius of Himayatsagar and Osmansagar lakes.

Petitioner sought an abatement of the altered government order. For the state government, Additional Advocate General Ramchander submitted that a similar question has been raised in another case and is pending.

The panel had ordered the state government to file the counter and to post the matter with the other PIL and adjourned the matter to August 26.

In a writ filed by Abhilash Thomas, co-founder of Indus Viva Health Sciences, the same panel stayed the attachment order passed by the Enforcement Directorate.

Petitioner challenged the legality and validity of attachment proceedings before the Adjudicating Authority and show cause notice issued by PMLA authorities. According to the petitioner, the provisional attachment order passed under the PMLA went beyond the 180-day period.

It was pointed out that the current adjudicating authority only consists of a chairman who is not a judicial member. The law required the Adjudicating Authority to consist of more than one member, one of whom should be a judicial member since the proceedings before him are penal in nature. While ordering notice, the panel granted an interim stay.

This same panel also required the State government to inform it how long it will take to prepare electoral rolls for The Cooperative Electric Supply Society. The state government, however, was given permission to prepare an electoral role for the Co-operative Electric Supply Society pending further orders.
