housing plots were
allotted by the Lucknow Development Authority. Some of the persons, who have
not been given allotment, filed writ petitions pointing out certain
irregularities committed by the Lucknow Development Authority. We are told that
those Writ Petition Nos.7040, 7577, 7327, 7519 and 7576 of 2007 are now pending
before the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad, Bench at Lucknow. Meanwhile,
for cancellation of 28 plots and for constitution of Enquiry Committee, another
public interest litigation was filed by one Vishwanath Chaturvedi before this
Court being Writ Petition (C) No.445/2005 and the same is pending
consideration. As these writ petitions, which are pending in the Lucknow Bench
are similar to the Writ Petition pending before this Court and relate to the
same issue, to avoid conflicting decisions being taken on the same set of
facts, we direct that all the above writ petitions i.e. W.P.Nos.7040, 7577,
7327, 7519 and 7576 of 2007 be transferred to this Court. The order be
communicated to the Registrar General of the Allahabad High Court, Bench at
Lucknow and the records be sent to this Court at an early date.
