Arguments before the Court
The Petitioner contends that the Jamnagar Area Development Authority showed the intention of no sanction to the let out plans of the common plots, despite the application of Right to Information through the 2005 Act. While the Respondents contend that the petitioners’ son had applied for allotment to the State Government for land and since the land was situated in the GIDC, Jamnagar Industrial Estate, no NOC was required from the GIDC. The petitioners’ son had applied for land through two different entities. The Corporation informed the applicants that the concerned survey no. was required by the GIDC and no objection could not be granted. An additional affidavit had also be filed by GIDC.
The Court observed that some of the petitioners are neither allottees of the plots in the GIDC whereas some of the petitioners are allowed some portions. After scrutinising the affidavit-in-reply the court noticed that this indicates, that the GIDC made the allotments which have been referred to in the affidavit-in-reply and have been reproduced, and therefore have not contravened any such stipulated area and therefore the petition was dismissed of the Petitioners.
