Court : Kerala

Decided on : May-30-1995

Reported in : AIR1995Ker327

thomas, j. 1. these appeals arise apparently from two different awards passed by the same arbitrator, but they have sprouted from one contract work the amplitude of which grew much wider during the period of its execution. that contract work, with different shades of details, was undertaken by one contractor. when disputes arose between him and the government, such disputes were referred to one arbitrator who passed three different awards upon the same evidence. we find it convenient to deal with these two appeals in one common judgment. the remaining third award was passed by the same arbitrator on certain disputes which sprouted from the same contract work undertaken by the same contractor. but, that is subject matter of another appeal (m.f.a. no. 89/95). after hearing both sides, we deem it more convenient to dispose of the said appeal by a separate judgment. hence we have delinked that appeal from these two. all the same, we may perhaps make some reference to the said appeal also in this judgment. 2. the contract was in respect of a particular work attached to the kallada irrigation project (kip). the tender submitted by the respondent in these appeals was accepted and agreement was executed between him and the government on 9-5-1984. the work was 'formation of left bank main canal of the k.i.p. (from chain 47005 to 48254 -- m)'. it included certain ancillary work such as driving a tunnel etc. while the work was being executed, the state entered into some suppli-mentary .....

Aravind Ramakant Modawdekar and ors. Vs. State of Kerala and ors.

Court : Kerala

Decided on : Dec-11-1995

Reported in : AIR1996Ker195

thomas, ag. c.j.1. when the original petitions were filed the initial target was the steep rise in the tax amount imposed by the government on 'contract carriages'. but eventually petitioners restricted the scope of their challenge to the two tier tax rates fixed on contract carriages -- one for those operating service entirely within the state of kerala and the other for those conducting service both within and outside the state. the former class of contract carriages is described as 'intra-state service' for convenience and the latter class as 'inter-state service'. the same expressions can appropriately be used by us also in this judgment. tax in respect of intra-state service is rs. 500/- per quarter per seat while for the other it is just double of it. this differentiation is attacked as violative of article 14 of the constitution.2. learned single judge dismissed all the original petitions on the ground that the said classification has an intelligible basis and that there is a nexus between the differentia and the object of the taxation. in other words, learned single judge upheld the validity of the two tier tax measure imposed on contract carriages. owners of contract carriages who filed the original petitions have filed these appeals in challenge of the said judgment.3. learned counsel for the appellants contended that even if the classification made between intra-state and inter-state service has any perceptible differentia it has no rational nexus with the object .....

order1. these are three petitions practically dealing with identical contentions. although the first petition (o.p.1019/1995) is by the petitioner farmer and the other two petitions (o.p. nos. 1174 and 2463 of 1995) are by the dealers in agricultural machineries, apart from other technical contentions and questions raised and involved, the main issue is whether the circular-dated march 30, 1989 by the registrar of co-operative societies, trivandrum and similar consequential directions issued by the concerned departments of co-operative societies of other concerned districts is an infringement of the fundamental right guaranteed under article 19(1)(g) of the constitution of india or in the nature of a reasonable restriction justifiable under article 19(6) thereof.2. illustratively the petitioner in o.p. no. 1174/1995 is a dealer at kasaragod in agricultural machineries such as pump sets, sprayers etc. the petitioner deals in isi marked articles. he is the president of the kerala agro machinery dealers association formed for the purpose of promoting the common cause and therefore the petition is filed in individual as well as representative capacity.3. similarly the same petitioner in the same capacity has a grievance confining to kannur district whereas the petitioner in the third petition (o.p. 1019/1995) is a small scale farmer having his agriculture at aralam village in iritty.4. the concerned district co-operative bank undertakes schemes for disbursement of loans to .....
