The present petition is listed today for hearing in motion
on special request made by the learned counsel for the
respondents which was not opposed to on the last of hearing

Today when the case is taken up for hearing in motion,
the learned counsel for the petitioner pointed out that
I.A.No.3193/15, an application for amendment of the petition,
is still pending consideration.
It is unfortunate that the fact of pendency of this I.A.
was not pointed out when the matter was fixed for hearing in
motion by order dated 23.6.15.
The learned counsel for respondents opposed the said
I.A.No.3193/15 on the ground that petitioner is delaying the
matter with an ulterior motive of somehow extending the
operation of stay which has been granted way back on
27.5.13 dissuading the respondent-Indian Oil Corpn. from
going ahead with the establishment of retail outlet in question.
