Goa bench of Bombay HC dismisses PIL seeking termination of lease deed of Goa govt body, company

-

Panjim Oct 7 (ILNS) The Goa Bench of the Bombay High Court recently dismissed a PIL seeking action on the termination of the lease agreement and quashing of a sale deed between Goa Economic Development Corporation and a private limited company. The PIL has been filed by Kashinath Jairam Shetye and seven others.

The Court observed that it isn’t sitting in an advisory jurisdiction to indicate to the petitioners as to what steps could have been taken if they were aggrieved by police inaction. The petitioners claimed that by a lease deed dated 12.02.1999, the Goa Economic Development Corporation (GEDC) demised certain plots of land to the company for development. There were specific clauses stated in the lease deed subject to which the developed structures in the premises could be sold or transferred.

It is pointed out that by a sale deed dated 14.03.2007, the company sold some portion of the building on the said land to the State in exchange for valuable consideration. The grievance in this regard was raised for the first time on behalf of the petitioners by submitting a representation/complaint dated 15.07.2019 addressed to the State of Goa as also the Police Authorities and the Collector of North Goa.

It was prayed in the said representation/complaint that a FIR ought to be registered against those responsible for the aforesaid actions on the part of the respondents for various offences under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prevention of Corruption Act. A prayer was also made for such an FIR to be investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The petitioners also sought certain specific directions for recovery of 50% of the lease value and for cancellation of the leases./ILNS/SS/SNG/
