This appeal is
directed against the judgment and order dt.09.09.2005 passed by the High Court
of Andhra Pradesh at Hyderabad in Writ Appeal No.1391 of 2005 by which the Writ
Appeal filed by the appellant was dismissed with the following directions :-
"In the circumstances, we deem it more appropriate to direct the

needed in exercise of our discretionary power under Article 136 of the
Constitution since we find that the Division Bench of the High Court has only
directed the authorities to decide the matter on merit and in accordance with

position, we are not inclined to interfere with the order impugned in this
The appeal is
accordingly dismissed. There shall be no order as to costs.
