C.M.No.8528/2017(to condone the delay of 201 days in filing)

LPA 152/2017 Page 1 of 6
It is pleaded that the appellant/applicant, who is 91 year old and is
suffering from various health ailments was held up in his native place Mandi
(Himachal Pradesh) and, therefore, the appeal could not be filed within time.
No doubt there was a long delay of about 200 days but having observed the
appellant, who was present in the Court when the matter was heard, we do
not find any justifiable reason to disbelieve the plea of his advance age and
health conditions. Hence, we consider it appropriate to condone the delay
subject to the condition of the appellant/applicant depositing a sum of
Rs.5,000/- to the Delhi State Legal Services Authority within two weeks
from today.
