HC dismisses review plea seeking regularisation of

Press Trust of India  |  Chennai 

The has observed that if illegality is going to be regularised or accepted then will probably start thinking of violating the law and take advantage of the situation.

A division bench of Justice M Venugopal and Justice S Vaidyanathan made the observation while dismissing a review plea filed by two persons seeking regularisation of their unauthorised building, yesterday.

"We do not understand as to how the violators can inculcate the values to the children and the family members," the bench said.

The matter relates to an application from D.Rajappa and R.Jayalakshmi to review a court order which rejected their request for regularisation of their building.

"...the review cannot be treated as appeal in disguise," the bench said.

"The object behind review is ultimately to see that there should not be miscarriage of justice and shall do justice for the sake of justice only and review on the ground that the judgment is erroneous, cannot be sustained," it said.

The bench said the petitioners were trying to take everyone for a ride including the High Court and the Supreme Court.

The authorities have identified 37 violations and the building had been constructed violating many of the development regulations and parameters, it said.

Payment of fine amount cannot justify the regularisation, the bench said.

"It is very unfortunate that the violator is trying to justify the act. The and this court have repeatedly held that everyone should follow the law," it said.
