Canceling license on the ground of selling buffalo meat without notice and hearing is violative of Natural Justice: Allahabad HC
A two-judge bench of Allahabad comprising of Justice Deepak Verma, and Justice Manoj Kumar Gupta quashed an impugned order in which the license was canceled on the ground that the petitioner was selling buffalo meat.
The Impugned order of canceling license of doing business was issued by Food Safety Officer, Tehsil Sadar, Pilibhit.
The petitioner who is doing the business of selling buffalo meat has submitted before the Hon’ble Court that the officer has never given any notice regarding the same and neither any opportunity of hearing him and thus impugned order passed without following the principle of natural justice audi alteram partem.
The respondent, in this case, submitted that he has passed the order on the ground that the petitioner is doing business of selling buffalo meat, which is hurting the sentiments of a community.
The Court while quashing the impugned order said that that we are of the view that the said order was passed without following the principles of natural justice and the respondent not enclosed any instructions, demonstrating any notice or opportunity of hearing was given to the petitioner before passing the impugned order.
