1. This petition is directed against an order dated 1st February, 1985 passed by the Appellate Tribunal constituted under the Central Excise Act.
2. Feeling aggrieved by an order passed by the Collector of Central Excise, Meerut fastening certain pecuniary liability upon the petitioner an appeal was preferred before the Tribunal and that appeal has been dismissed in default by the impugned order. It is stated at the bar that an application for the restoration of the appeal has been filed and the same is pending before the Tribunal. There is some controversy as to whether the application for restoration has been allowed or not. In case the application has been allowed and the appeal has been restored to its original number, the Tribunal shall dispose of the same on merits and in accordance with law, as soon as possible. If the application has not been allowed and is still pending, the appellate authority shall pass an order restoring the appeal to its original number and thereafter, dispose it of on merits. Till the Tribunal disposes of the appeal of the petitioner on merits and in accordance with law, the realisation of the amount as adjudged by the Collector of Central Excise in the order under appeal shall remain stayed.
