Tag Line:A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Mr. Justice Mahmood A. Khan, has pronounced the judgment on 24.07.2020 in the case of Muhammad Ayaz Khan and others v. Federation of Pakistan & others (along with C.P.No.D-1046/2019), whereby, Members of the Establishment of Sindh High Court and Members of Establishment of the Establishment of sub-ordinate judiciary of Province of Sindh, expressed their grievance against withholding of income tax by the Accountant General Sindh on the amounts paid towards Judicial Allowance and Special Judicial Allowance by treating the same as part of their salary income chargeable to tax under the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001. The Hon'ble bench of Sindh High Court has been pleased to allow both these petitions in the following terms:- "In view of hereinabove facts and circumstances of the case, we are of the considered opinion that amount of judicial allowance and special judicial allowance paid to the Members of establishment of Sindh High Court as well as to the Members of the establishment of sub-ordinate judiciary of Province of Sindh falls within the exclusion in terms of clause (c) of sub-section (2) of Section 12 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, therefore, not part of their taxable salary income, hence, not chargeable to Tax or deduction under Section 149 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001. Accordingly, withholding of income tax on the aforesaid amounts is hereby declared to be illegal and without lawful authority. Consequently, both the constitutional petitions are allowed along with listed applications. Respondents are directed not to withhold any amount of income tax from judicial allowance and special judicial allowance of the Members of establishment of Sindh High Court as well as the Members of establishment of sub-ordinate judiciary in Province of Sindh. The amounts already deducted from the salary of the Members of establishment of Sindh High Court as well as to the sub-ordinate judiciary, shall be refunded by the FBR, on their filing refund applications in accordance with law, preferably, within a period of three months from the date of such claims."

25) 3757/2013 Const. P. Yaqoob Ahmed (Petitioner) V/S Fed. of Pakistan and Ors (Respondent)
Sindh High Court, Karachi
Topic: Constitution of Pakistan (199)
Tag Line:A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Mr. Justice Muhammad Junaid Ghaffar, has pronounced the judgment on 02.07.2020, filed by large number of petitioners, whereby, imposition of Income Support Levy at the rate of 0.5% on the value of Net Moveable Assets, through Income Support Levy Act, 2013, has been challenged for being ultravires to Constitution, as according to petitioners, subject levy did not possess the characteristic of a tax, therefore, could not be introduced through Finance Act 2013, along with Money Bill in terms of Article 73 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. The subject levy was also challenged for being violative of the provisions of Article 25 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as according to petitioners, Income Support Levy is discriminatory in nature, as it creates unreasonable classification between the same class of persons having Net Moveable Assets exceeding Rs.1.00 Million. The Hon?ble Divisional Bench of this Court, after having examined in detail all the constitutional and legal points involved in these petitions, has been pleased to allow the petitions in the following terms:- (i) The levy imposed through Income Support Levy Act, 2013 alongwith Money Bill, does not possess the characteristics of a tax, as it is not a common burden for raising revenue to be utilized for general public purpose, on the contrary, it is a levy in the nature of fund to be charged and utilized for a specific purpose i.e. ?to provide for financial resources for raising an income support fund for the economically distressed persons and their families?. Accordingly, the Income Support Levy Act, 2013, could not be introduced through Finance Act, 2013, in terms of Article 73 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973, the same is hereby declared to be ultra vires to the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. (ii) The levy imposed through Income Support Levy Act, 2013, is hereby declared to be ultravires to the Constitution for being discriminatory, as it creates unreasonable classification within the same class of person i.e. persons having Net Moveable Wealth exceeding Rs.1.00 M (One Million), whereas, its incidence and charge of levy falls un-equally upon the existing taxpayers only, who file or required to file Wealth Statement under Section 116 along with their Income Tax Return under Section 115 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, , however, non-existing taxpayers, who are not required under law, or do not file their Wealth Statement along with Income Tax Return, inspite of having much higher Net Moveable Wealth, exceeding Rs.1.00 M (One Million), have been excluded from the incidence and charge of such levy, which is in clear violation of Article 25 of the Constitution of Islamic of Pakistan, 1973. (iii) All the Notices and the proceedings, including assessment order(s) passed under Section 5 of the Income Support Levy Act, 2013 after repeal of the Income Support Levy Act, 2013, under clause 10 of the Finance Act, 2014, in the absence of any saving or validation clause to protect or validate the Income Support Levy Act, 2013 are hereby declared to be without jurisdiction and lawful authority.

Tag Line:Primarily, in bail matters, it is the discretion of every Court to grant the bail, but such discretion should not be arbitrary, fanciful, or perverse, as the case in hand begs a question as to what constitutes an offense under section 489-F, P.P.C. Every transaction where a cheque is dishonored may not constitute an offense. The foundational elements to constitute an offense under this provision are the issuance of a cheque with dishonest intent, the cheque should be towards repayment of a loan or fulfillment of an obligation, and lastly that the cheque in question is dishonored.

Sindh High Court, Karachi

Tag Line:Given the mechanism in-built in section 177 of the Income Tax Ordinance, which includes the providing of reasons in writing to the taxpayer, the power conferred on the Commissioner to call for record under section 177(1) of the Ordinance, does not by itself offend Article 25 of the Constitution. The question then, whether such power has been used unlawfully, is different, and one that may vary with the circumstances of each case. While making such challenge, the Plaintiff had also to demonstrate infringement of a Fundamental Right. The invoking of section 177(1) does not militate against the concept of deemed assessment under section 122 of the Ordinance. Malafides had to be pleaded with particulars.

Sindh High Court, Karachi
Topic: LIMITATION (Limitation Act 1908), Transfer of Property Act 1882, Specific Relief Act,
Tag Line: The newly developed question in these proceedings while the instant appeal was pending adjudication is the alienation of the property by respondents No.1 and 2 to respondent No.3. It is claimed to have changed hands and respondent No.3 claimed to have acquired rights in the property and very ably represented by the same counsel who represents the respondents No.1 and 2. Its alienation was effected while the interim order was operating. Additionally Mr. Abrar argued issue of lis pendens. Admittedly the notice under section 18 of the Registration Act in terms of Section 52 of the Transfer of Property Act was not issued. The question of lis pendens would take its effect when proceedings would be initiated in terms of section 18 of the Registration Act, 1908 for its effectiveness and cure as required in terms of Section 52 of the Transfer of Property Act.

Tag Line:NBP--We are constrained to observe that despite the legal position established in view of plethora of pronouncements by the Hon???ble Supreme Court as discussed above, the present petitioner filed this petition seeking a relief to which he was not entitled under the law. In other words, the petitioner wanted this Court to grant a declaration contrary to the law settled by the Hon???ble Supreme Court. Not only this, he obtained an ad-interim injunction order in these proceedings against the respondent-bank. Such conduct on his part is not acceptable as he has consumed and wasted valuable time of this Court which could have been utilized to decide genuine and urgent matters. Therefore, the petition is liable to be dismissed with costs.

Topic: Constitution of Pakistan (199), Election Matters
Tag Line:A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Mr. Justice Zulfiqar Ahmad Khan, has pronounced the judgment on 12.06.2020 filed by Aam Log Ittehad, through its Secretary General Azhar Jamil and Mr. Wajihuddin Ahmed (former Judge of Hon?ble Supreme Court of Pakistan) in his capacity as Human Rights and Political Activist, challenging the appointment of respondents No.2 to 5, Justice (Retired) Shakeel Ahmed Baloch, former Judge, Balochistan High Court; (ii) Justice (Retired) Irshad Qaiser, former Judge, Peshawar High Court; (iii) Justice (Retired) Altaf Ibrahim Qureshi, former Judge Lahore High Court; & (iv) Abdul Ghaffar, a former bureaucrat, who according to petitioners, have been appointed in violation of Article 207 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973, which provides that "a person who has held office as a Judge of the Supreme Court or of a High Court shall not hold any office of profit in the service of Pakistan, not being a judicial or quasi-judicial office or the office of Chief Election Commissioner or of Chairman or member of a law commission or of Chairman or member of the Council of Islamic Ideology, before the expiration of two years after he has ceased to hold that office". This being a case of first impression on the subject constitutional and legal points has been decided through this detailed judgment by Hon?ble Bench in the following terms: "22. We would, therefore, sum up our findings on various constitutional and legal grounds agitated by the petitioners and the objections as to maintainability of instant petition raised by the respondents, in the following terms: (i) Petitioners have the locus standi to file instant constitutional petition in the nature of quo-warranto under Article 199(i)(b)(ii) of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973 for the reason that any person, who may not be an aggrieved party, can invoke the constitutional jurisdiction of a High Court for issuance of a writ of quo-warranto so that a High Court may examine the validity of an appointment to a public office, on constitutional and legal grounds. In view of our detailed finding as recorded in Para: 9 to 12 hereinabove, the objections raised by the respondents with regard to maintainability of instant petition on various grounds, including: (i) locus standi of petitioners to file instant petition; (ii) mala fide on the part of the petitioners; (iii) latches; and (iv) lack of territorial jurisdiction of this Court, are hereby declared to be without any substance, hence over-ruled. ii) Office of Election Commission of Pakistan is a "quasi-judicial office", therefore, bar of expiration of two years in terms of Article 207(2) of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973, would not be attracted in the case of appointment of retired judges of Supreme Court and High Court(s). Therefore, a writ of quo-warranto cannot be issued against respondents Nos. 2 to 4 being the retired Judges of different High Courts on the grounds that their appointments have been made before expiration of two years from the date when they ceased to hold office as Judges of High Courts. Accordingly, writ against respondents Nos.2 to 4 is misconceived and not maintainable. iii) As regards issuance of writ of quo-warranto against respondent No.5, a retired bureaucrat, no substantial constitutional or legal ground has been agitated, nor any sufficient material or evidence has been produced in support of the allegations of corruption, therefore, we are not inclined to conduct any inquiry or to make a probe into the allegations levelled against respondent No.5 while exercising constitutional jurisdiction under Article 199(i)(b)(ii) of the Constitution in the instant case. Accordingly, writ against respondent No.5 is not maintainable.

Tag Line:WRIT PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 199 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN, 1973 1. A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Mr. Justice Arshad Hussain Khan has pronounced the judgment today i.e. on 21st January 2021 in the case of K.E.S.C. Labour Union and others v. Federation of Pakistan and others (alongwith other connected Petitions), whereby, the petitioners have challenged the privatization process adopted by the Respondents Nos.2 and 3 i.e. Privatization Commission through its Secretary and Karachi Electric Supply Corporation Ltd. through its Managing Director in respect of sale/transfer of the shares of KESC for being illegal, irrational and without lawful authority. Whereas, further declaration has been sought to the effect that purported sale and transfer of shareholding and management control in KESC to M/s.Hassan Associates consortium, is void, malafide and opposed to law and public policy. Various other Constitutional and legal grounds were agitated during the course of hearing of above Petitions and after hearing all the learned counsel for the parties, in detail, learned Divisional Bench of this Court through an exhaustive judgment pronounced today has been pleased to dismiss the above Petitions in the following terms: - "62. In view of hereinabove facts and circumstances of the case, the aforesaid petitions are disposed of in the following terms:- a) The privatization process adopted by the respondents No.2 & 3 in respect of sale/transfer of the share of KESC does not violate the constitutional mandate, whereas, substantial compliance of the provisions of Privatization Commission Ordinance, 2000 read with Privatization Commission (Modes and Procedures) Rules, 2001, has also been made, therefore, no interference is required by this Court. Accordingly, aforesaid Constitutional Petitions being devoid of any merit, are hereby dismissed along with listed applications. b) That without prejudice to above finding, we hereby declare that the petitioners have failed to establish the malafide on the part of respondents in respect of sale/transfer of the share to KESC through negotiated sale to a private company, which is otherwise permissible in law and as per rules referred to hereinabove, therefore, the allegation of malafide by the petitioners on the part of the respondents stands rebutted, hence petitions are dismissed on this ground also. c) Nothing has been produced by the learned counsel for the petitioners in support of their submission that electricity being an essential service cannot be privatized, therefore, such plea of the petitioners also stands rebutted and the petitions are hereby dismissed on this account also." 2. Before parting with the aforesaid judgment, learned Divisional Bench of this Court has been further pleased to observe that plea of the learned counsel for the petitioners requiring the Court to take cognizance of subsequent events of privatization, issue directions to the Auditor General of Pakistan for conducting scrutiny and audit of the accounts of the K-Electric (KESC), cannot be acceded in these Petitions, as it would amount to granting a relief to the petitioners beyond the pleadings, while changing the complexion of the proceedings, to the disadvantage of the respondents, which is not permissible in law. However, it has been observed that this aspect of the matter can be agitated as a separate cause before the relevant forum/authority/Court of law, by filing appropriate proceedings, however, subject to all just exceptions and in accordance with law.

Tag Line:the jurisdiction vested in it was not exercised fairly justly and in fact the findings of the learned Rent Controller has completely shut down the plea raised by the petitioners/tenants wherein it is alleged by tenants that in terms of section 18 the default claimed is to be regulated by section 15 of Sindh Rented Premises Ordinance, 1979 and despite the fact that 30 days period was provided under section 18 to tender the rent, the tenants/petitioners can still avail the rights guaranteed to them in terms of proviso to section 15 of Sindh Rented Premises Ordinance, 1979, provided that they have fulfilled the conditions laid down therein. The judgments relied upon by learned counsel for respondent No.3 are not relevant to the present case. They relate to the issue of interlocutory orders regarding which no appeal lies, however, in the instant case issue is totally different wherein the learned Rent Controller has not performed and exercised the jurisdiction, as required.

Tag Line:In a Suit for Declaration, Injunction, Cancellation, Rendition of Accounts and Recovery, Plaintiffs had sought a restraining order against Defendants from presenting postdated cheques given as security pursuant to written agreements between the parties; or to use the same for any criminal proceedings or otherwise. Defendants opposed this application on the ground that section 56 (e) of the Specific Relief Act bars grant of any such permanent injunction; hence, no temporary injunction can be granted. The Court repelled this argument and allowed the injunction application by passing a temporary injunction and restrained the Defendants from using such cheques in any manner pending trial of the Suit.

Tag Line:Policy-making by the CCI under Article 154(1) is in a different sphere than policy-making by the Federal Government in the exercise of its executive authority under Article 97. The Natural Gas Allocation & Management Policy, 2005 was within the legal competence of the Federal Government and not the CCI. Under the GSAs between the Plaintiffs and the SSGC, the Plaintiffs cannot assert a right to receive gas for industrial use during the months of December, January and February. Article 158 of the Constitution exists as a prerogative of a Provincial Government, and therefore it does not give actionable cause to a person other than the concerned Provincial Government to invoke the same.

Tag Line: A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Justice Mrs. Rashida Asad has pronounced the judgment on 22nd December 2020 in the case of Aameer Mustaaly Karachiwalla v. Deputy Commissioner Inland Revenue and others (alongwith other connected Petitions), whereby, the petitioners have challenged the issuance of notice under Section 182(2) read with Section 116A of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, enforcing penalty for not submitting returns regarding Foreign Income and Assets Statement. The plea of the petitioners was that the petitioners have already declared Foreign Income and Assets from all the sources in their wealth statement filed under Section 116 alongwith their return of total income for the Tax Year 2019 under Section 114 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, within the prescribed time limit, by availing e-filing facility via IRIS, whereas, such return was duly accepted, as no notice was issued to the petitioners by the Department in terms of Section 120(3) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, requiring the petitioners to furnish any short documents in this regard. It was further argued on behalf of the petitioners that omission in filing returns was neither deliberate nor it has any financial implications or involvement of payment of any taxes, etc. therefore, the penalty provisions of Section 182 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, could not be invoked. Learned Divisional Bench of this Court by examining all the relevant provisions of law and case-laws has been pleased to allow the aforesaid Petitions in the following terms: - ???13. In view of the foregoing discussions, we are of considered opinion that in the absence of prescribed format notified under Section 116A of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001, whereas, nothing has been concealed by petitioners, nor there is any consequence either on income or tax liability of petitioners for non-filing of Foreign Income & Assets Statement along with return of income for Tax Year 2019, the penal provisions of Section 182 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, could not be invoked. Particularly, when respondents have failed to establish willful default or mens rea on the part of petitioners. We derive analogical guidance from ???the Non delegation Doctrine??? which is well established in jurisprudence and is attracted in the instant circumstances. Issuance of notices under section 182(2) cannot be validated, therefore, impugned notices having no support of lawful authority are hereby declared as illegal, hence, of no legal consequence. For these reasons, the petitions were allowed vide short order announced on 22.12.2020.

Applications made under section 170 of Ordinance 2001 for refund has the limitation of three years in terms of Section 170(2) i.e. deemed assessment or when tax was paid whereas deemed assessment itself could be subjected to amendment within five years of such deemed assessment hence the purpose which cannot be achieved under Section 170 is available under other provisions of Ordinance 2001.

186) 24/2020 M.A. MUHAMMAD SHAH KAKAR THR ATTORNEY AHMED SHAH (Appellant) V/S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY TRIBUNAL AT SINDH & BALOCHIS (Respondent)
Sindh High Court, Karachi

Topic: TRADE MARK (Section 5(2) of Trade Marks Ordinance, 2001 ), TRADE MARK (Section 40 of Trade Marks Ordinance, 2001), Custom Act, Itellectual Property Law (Trade Mark Cases)
Tag Line:SRO 170(I)/2017 dated 17.03.2017 is for "imported goods only" and was not applied to parallel or grey market imports and de-minimis imports. Powers to take action, detention, seizure, confiscation of goods imported into or taken out of Pakistan were/are always available with the customs officials and it is not that SRO 170(i)/2017 that has empowered them, it only set the process to be initiated by custom officials in relation to goods being imported. What was amended by virtue of SRO 768(I)/2014 is also very material. In Section 3CC and 3E of Customs Act, 1969 formation of the Director General of Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement was redesigned along with its functions, jurisdiction and powers. In the present case Tribunal could only pass order to the extent of trade mark being an infringed one or otherwise and to restrain it from being violated. The Procedural action of custom officials was not questioned independently by respondent. Once the effect of infringement was determined by tribunal the customs officials would definitely have followed it. Color and color scheme also at time claimed to be an inventive one but that is not the case here as no one has claimed livery or color scheme or get up to be a mark of distinction under any intellectual property rights. Both parties are contesting over one mark i.e Tabiat and no one has claimed any exclusive right over livery or dress up of mark. So everything is a disclaimer except "Tabiat". If there are deceptive liveries of common product like rice, with one trade mark "Tabiat" in the absence of a right claimed under the liveries, the buyer would definitely get confuse and jump to some other brand as a natural course. In terms of Section 5(2) of Trade Marks Ordinance, 2001 goods even if not meant for a local consumption but only to enter the port for onwards journey, would mean the use of mark within jurisdiction. Unless goods in transit are defined otherwise, only aforesaid meaning is deducible. Construction of our Trade Mark Ordinance, 2001 is also based on same scheme and there is no inconsistency as far as framing of relevant provision trade mark is concerned. The word import or export (exclusively or inclusively) not defined under the law in hand differently that is dealing with goods in transit. The case of the appellant is on better footing since the attempt is made to export the goods from the territory where the mark is registered The word "use" as explained above is also applicable to goods "for export only" and hence Section 5(2) read with section 40 of Trade Mark ordinance 2001 would be interpreted accordingly as use within territory of Pakistan.

Tag Line:(a) Civil Procedure Code (V of 1908)--- ----O. XVI, R. 1(2)---Limitation Act (IX of 1908) S.3---Summoning and attendance of witnesses---Object, scope and nature of O.XVI R.1, C.P.C.---List of witnesses, non-filing of---Provisions of O.XVI, R.1, C.P.C. were mandatory---Use of the word "shall" in O.XVI, R.1(1), C.P.C. was re-emphasized with a prohibition that the party "shall not" be permitted to call witnesses other than those in the said list except with the permission of the court on showing "good cause" for the omission of said witnesses from the list---Time limit was an essential requirement of O.XVI, R.1, C.P.C. for seeking any relief with respect to summoning and attendance of court witnesses---Limitation of seven days was imposed so that the other side should be well aware of possible evidence expected in the case to meet it in rebuttal---Such limitation, if was allowed to be flouted with impunity, then the parties would keep on surprising each other by introducing witnesses and documents in evidence---After seven days from the time of framing of issues, upon failure to file list of witnesses, a statutory right was accrued in favour of opposite party which was; that even if evidence was available with a party such evidence shall not be used by the party having such evidence in their possession---Said right was analogized to the right of parties under S.3 of the Limitation Act, 1908---Rights survived but the remedy was extinguished---Evidence may be available but its effect was barred seven days after framing of issues by the court---Not only the "good cause" had to be shown by the delinquent party for calling a witness through the court but at the same time the applicant was required to explain the delay in disclosing the name of the witness---Failure of party to explain such delay would disentitle such party from getting relief and it would be against the spirit of the law to causally condone the time limit given in O.XVI, R.1, C.P.C. in the name of doing justice on merit. Muhammad Umar Mirza v. Waris Iqbal and others 1990 SCMR 964; 2008 YLR 1871 and 2008 CLC 1334 rel. (b) Administration of Justice--- ----Submission of irrelevant case-law by counsel appearing in court---Complaint of overwork in the judiciary was one of the basic obstacles in the administration of justice and it was not for the courts alone to administer justice and ensure that justice was not denied on account of inordinate delay in the disposal of cases---Each and every lawyer appearing in court had an equal responsibility to ensure that they should not consume the time of the court out of proportion to the issue in hand on the date of hearing---Very valuable time of the court can be consumed in the reading of case-law submitted by counsel and if such case-law was not relevant, it was one of the major contributing factor in the delay of administration of justice----Counsel were expected to be brief and to the point to help save time of the courts which in turn would utilized by the courts in disposal of other cases particularly the old cases.

Topic: Employee Old Age Benefits Act, 1976 (Payment of contribution under EOBI Act 1976)
Tag Line:Petitioner employers sought declaration that demand of contributions by the Federal EOBI under EOBI Act 1976 is illegal as EOBI became federal subject after 18th Amendment and subsequent Sindh EOBI Act 2014; Sindh Province did enact the Act 2014 but could not establish the Institution; CCI resolved EOBI shall remain with Federal Government. Held petitioners can???t take benefit of dispute between the Federation and Province; priority must be given to the employees as the Old Age Benefit law is a beneficial law, aimed for the benefit of the employees therefore in case contribution amount is not received by the EOBI ultimately it is the employees who will suffer. Hence these petitions are disposed of in terms that petitioners shall deposit the contributions and other dues according to EOBI Act 1976; all amount deposited with the Nazir shall be returned in favour of the EOBI established under the EOBI Act 1976.

Topic: Sindh Sales Tax on Services Act, 2011 , Finance Act, 2014
Tag Line:It is the consideration in money including federal and provincial duties and taxes which constitute value of taxable services which the person provides against the consideration but it excludes the amount of sales tax under the ibid Act. The Tribunal was of the view that the invoices generated on the amount includes the expenses/expenditures plus 10-% service charges and is to be taken as one revenue component for services rendered. The Tribunal is also of the view that in certain cases there is specific rule in Sindh Sales Tax on Services Act, 2011 providing for valuation of a particular service and providing a certain minimum threshold and also any exemption and exception. However, Tribunal considered that since no rule is available for the category of ???Business Support Services??? full value of generated invoices shall be taken as the value of services rendered or provided in terms of provisions of Section 5 ibid. --Primarily value of service charges for the purposes of Act 2011 is governed by the value of service agreed upon between the provider and the recipient as the market itself is so competitive that nothing could defeat the actual amount being declared to be taxed. However, in case such understanding of value of service is doubtful as it does not disclose correct value of service, it was open for the department to have considered the open market price of such service as required to be determined under section 6 of Sindh Sales Tax on Services Act, 2011 which is not the case here. Two provisos to Section 5 deals the situation of value of service. In a situation where the consideration of value of service is in kind or is partly in kind and partly in money, value of service shall mean open market price2 excluding the amount of sales tax under Act 2011. Similarly in case where service is provided by provider to a recipient who is an associated person and the value is not the actual value of service, then the value of service which is being provided by a provider to a non-associated person shall be counted and in case no consideration is claimed or value is lower than it is being provided by other persons, the value of service shall be of open market. In principle the department has not disputed the value of services rather the department is of the view that reimbursed amount or the amount of maintenance/expenses incurred should be made part of the value of the service.

Whether supersession is punishment---in promotion matters to such post could not be made in a mechanical manner and a variety of factors, such as examination of service records, evaluation reports of training institutions, record of disciplinary proceedings, reputation of integrity and efficiency, suitability for handling particular assignment, etc. had to be taken into consideration--- NCA Employees Service Rules 2011, on the aforesaid proposition, the matter has been set at rest by the Honorable Supreme Court in the case of Shafique Ahmed Khan and others v. NESCOM through Chairman Islamabad and others (PLD 2016 SC 377)] therefore, question of declaring the Chapter II of the NCA Employees Service Rules 2011 as ultra vires of Section 9, 11 of the National Command Authority Act 2010 and Articles 4,9,10-A of the Constitution of Pakistan, 1973 are not apropos at this stage for the reason discussed in the preceding paragraphs.

Sindh High Court, Karachi
Tag Line:(a) The repeal of the PMDC Ordinance, 2019 was by virtue of Article 89(2)(a)(ii) of the Constitution, i.e., by a resolution of the Senate disapproving the same and not by way of any repealing enactment. Therefore, the effect of repeal contained in sections 6, 6-A and section 24 of the General Clauses Act, 1897, which otherwise apply only when a repeal is by way of a repealing enactment, were neither triggered nor would those serve as an aid in construing the effect of repeal under a Constitutional provision such as Article 89. In other words, on the repeal of the PMDC Ordinance, 2019 by the effect of Article 89 of the Constitution, nothing contained in the General Clauses Act, 1897 would come to save the Amending Admission Regulations that had been made under the repealed Ordinance. In view of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council v. Muhammad Fahad Malik (supra), Article 264 of the Constitution also did not have the effect of saving or giving permanency to the Amended Admission Regulations when the effect of the PMDC Ordinance, 2019 was only temporary as it was never accorded approval by the Parliament. Therefore, on 29-08-2019, when the PMDC Ordinance, 2019 was repealed by the effect of Article 89 of the Constitution, the Amended Admission Regulations also stood repealed and the Original Admission Regulations were revived. (b) It will be seen that while the proviso to sub-section (2) of section 50 of the PMC Ordinance, 2019 repeals all previous Regulations, but that is subject to sub-section (7) which provides that the previous Regulations will continue to apply to the on-going admission process. The repeal of the PMDC Ordinance, 1962 by the PMC Ordinance, 2019, the former being a permanent statute under the 1973 Constitution, is not a repeal by virtue of Article 89 of the Constitution, but a repeal by a repealing statute, albeit a temporary one, and one which has been expressly made subject to section 6 of the General Clauses Act, 1897, which in turn provides that ???the repeal shall not revive anything not in force or existing at the time at which the repeal takes effect???. We have already discussed above that on 29-08-2019 the Amended Admission Regulations had ceased and the Original Admission Regulations had revived. Therefore, when sub-section (7) of section 50 of the PMC Ordinance, 2019 provides that the previous Regulations will continue to apply to the on-going admission process, those can only be the Original Admission Regulations.

291) 4201/2020 Const. P. Shamsuddin Dal (Petitioner) V/S Province of Sindh and Others (Respondent)
Sindh High Court, Karachi

Tag Line:The pivotal question involved in the present proceedings is whether a Civil / Government Servant who is found guilty of misconduct under The Sindh Civil Servants (Efficiency and Discipline) Rules, 1973, and a minor penalty was imposed upon him could be considered for promotion? ---In our view, the promotion to a post depends upon several circumstances. To qualify for the promotion, the least that is expected of an employee is to have an unblemished record. An employee found guilty of misconduct cannot be placed at par with the other employees, and his case has to be treated differently. While considering an employee for promotion his entire service record has to be taken into consideration and if a promotion committee takes the penalties imposed upon the employee into consideration and denies him the promotion, such denial cannot be termed as arbitrary, discriminatory, illegal or unjustified. In our view, the evaluation made by an Expert Committee should not be easily interfered with by this Court which does not have the necessary expertise to undertake the exercise that is necessary for such purpose. It is a settled proposition that the DPC, within its power to make its assessment, has to assess every proposal for promotion, on case to case basis. In cases where disciplinary case / criminal prosecution against the Civil / Government servant is not concluded even after the expiry of two years from the date of the meeting of the first DPC which kept its findings in respect of the Government servant the appointing authority may consider the desirability of giving him an ad-hoc promotion--Dismissed.

Tag Line:he subsequent judgment of the Member Board of Revenue dated 20.04.2017 not only ignored the order of his predecessor, but also ignored the fact that the suit, challenging the order of his predecessor, was also dismissed. These orders i.e. order of the Senior Civil Judge and more importantly the order of the Member Board of Revenue is implied res judicata as the subject matter of the appeal is nothing but the land which is defined as UA No.437 and 438. Here, it could safely be added that legally the litigation (s) are meant to decide controversies (issues). Where, the controversy / issue is that of general application and not limited to a party only then any decision thereon by a competent forum shall be binding upon all, including those who even were not before the legal forum / authority. A mere change of name of parties would never be sufficient to open a new round of litigation for the thing which otherwise stood decided by a lawful forum / authority. If this is ignored, there shall be no end to litigations and interested shall keep things hanging merely by substituting parties. An aggrieved however may get such decision reversed by appeal or reviewed, subject to law, but cannot seek another order from same forum / authority on plea of his being not a party to earlier lis. Any departure to such concept, shall result in frustrating the object of res judicata which otherwise has application in all matters, including Revenue jurisdiction.

Topic: Federal Excise Duty (Section 46), Sale Tax Act 1990 (Section 25)
Tag Line:Since 2010, Commissioner entrusted with the mandate of calling the record as and when required. Now one thing is for sure that this "as and when required" is not meaningless as being consistently followed and maintained throughout. We now need to understand what could be the event or stage when this phrase may come into play and be given some meaning. Eventually when a Commissioner examines the return of a tax payer, he may have some queries which might be tempting to call record as he may not be able to reconcile and/or resolve them through return statement. Those queries must be understood and settled to the satisfaction of the commissioner before he could make up his mind further. Now the audit is nowhere in the scheme when such questions came for consideration after going through the returns while the Commissioner acts under 25(1) of Sales Tax Act, 1990. Surely the record may satisfy the curious mind but queries must be genuine at the time of calling the record which could not have been answered without going through the record required. Therefore, record calling could not be a roving exercise and cannot be a courtesy call either. The phrase "as and when required" had remained part of Section 25 throughout ever since it was introduced. It is not "as and when desired" but "as and when required". Therefore, the reasons in the shape of "mindful queries" must be in existence and disclosed before calling record for the fulfillment of requirement "as and when required". The requirements of 25(1) are neither unfettered nor are so liberal that a hunting expedition would commence. It is the periodical transfiguration of the provisions of Section 25 that led us believe that there has to be an event or occasion when the Commissioner required the record and documents maintained under this Act or any other Act. Even requiring the documents/record for satisfaction of queries must be revealed so that notice may not transform into a hunting time. However, if the mindful queries were not met, he may authorize an officer of the Inland Revenue, on the basis of record obtained under subsection (1) by him, to conduct audit. Now, if the officer of the Inland Revenue subordinate to the Commissioner is under the obligatory command of Commissioner to conduct audit then the Commissioner must disclose the discrepancies he found while forwarding record already obtained by him, for audit be conducted in pursuance of the queries of the Commissioner, which queries must see the daylight so that the officer of the Inland Revenue proceed accordingly. The officer of the Inland Revenue on his own without having knowledge of discrepancies, queries of the Commissioner, cannot start the proceedings of audit which has to be under the authorization. It would only be general audit but not as contemplated under section 25(1) which compelled the commissioner to call record. The authorization thus should contain the reasons and mindful queries required to be processed through the audit which he has passed on to designated officer. Thus, insofar as Section 25 is concerned, we would conclude that for purposes of Section 25(1) Commissioner must frame legitimate mindful queries to the knowledge of a taxpayer after going through the returns which must be either be satisfied after calling the record or otherwise.

Tag Line:The caption petition has raised substantial questions of law involving interpretation of the certain provisions of The DOW University of Health Sciences Act, 2004 (`Act-2004`) and the Dow Employees (Service) Statute, 2007, and the principles governing the Writ of Quo Warranto as well as the power of the syndicate/competent authority of respondent-University to make a contractual appointment under the Act-2004 as amended up-to-date and Service Statute 2007--In our view, the evaluation made by an Expert Committee of respondent-university ought not to be easily interfered with by this Court which does not have the necessary expertise to undertake the exercise that is necessary for such purpose. It is a settled proposition that the competent authority, within its power to make its assessment, has to assess the candidature of a candidate for regular appointment or on contract basis, on case to case basis. On the aforesaid proposition, we are fortified with the decision of the Honourable Supreme Court in the case of Muhammad Ashraf Sangri v. Federation of Pakistan and others (2014 SCMR 157). In the instant case, prima-facie, the competent authority has assessed the candidature of the private respondents and appointed them in the respondent-university, which does not require interference at our end.

Tag Line:Having come to the irresistible conclusion that, when (a) the framers of the Constitution consciously chose to abstain from making provisions for mandatory creation of Public Service Commission; (b) the Chief Minister of Sindh having no powers to appoint Chairman and Members of the Commission under Rule 5(ii)/Schedule-III/Entry(3) of the Sindh Government Rules of Business 1986; (c) the appointments of Chairman and Members of the Commission made under Rule 5(2) and (3) of Sindh Public Service Commission (Appointment of Chairman and Member) Rules 2017 being violative of the Rules of Business and made with utter disregard to the maintenance of political neutrality of the Commission; (d) No right to appeal having been provided to an aggrieved person; (e) Chairman and Members having taken no oath of office; (f) function of ???Examination??? of candidates restricted to Testing and then narrowed down to Interviewing under the Sindh Civil Servants (Functions) Rules, 1990 being ulta vires to the provisions of 1989 Act; (g) no Annual Reports as required by Section 9(1) of the Act, 1989 having been made available to the Public; (h) no data having been made available with regards advice refusal of the Commission under Section 8 of the Act, 1989 then how could one expect that any legit and useful fruit could be borne by this skewed and merit-throttling recruiting process; that???s why Courts are kept engaged by Commission???s Members and operatives constantly on a permanent basis since inception of the Commission in the year 1989 when the said Act was enacted for no Constitutionally compelling reasons in the presence of Sindh Civil Servants (Appointment, Promotion & Transfer) Rules, 1974; the Sindh Civil Servants (Probation, Confirmation and Seniority) Rules, 1975; the Sindh Civil Servants Act, 1973 and half a dozen alike laws/rules; and whereas, the Province (to a great extent) had been well served by honest, qualified and motivated civil servants before 1989 when this institution in its present form was born - according to one view, to serve as ???one window facility to foster whole-sale corruption???, has lost every shred of legitimacy and ought to be brought to a nullity in its present form

Tag Line:WRIT PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 199 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN, 1973 A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Justice Mrs. Rashida Asad has pronounced the judgment on 22nd December 2020 in the case of Aameer Mustaaly Karachiwalla v. Deputy Commissioner Inland Revenue and others (alongwith other connected Petitions), whereby, the petitioners have challenged the issuance of notice under Section 182(2) read with Section 116A of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, enforcing penalty for not submitting returns regarding Foreign Income and Assets Statement. The plea of the petitioners was that the petitioners have already declared Foreign Income and Assets from all the sources in their wealth statement filed under Section 116 alongwith their return of total income for the Tax Year 2019 under Section 114 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, within the prescribed time limit, by availing e-filing facility via IRIS, whereas, such return was duly accepted, as no notice was issued to the petitioners by the Department in terms of Section 120(3) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, requiring the petitioners to furnish any short documents in this regard. It was further argued on behalf of the petitioners that omission in filing returns was neither deliberate nor it has any financial implications or involvement of payment of any taxes, etc. therefore, the penalty provisions of Section 182 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, could not be invoked. Learned Divisional Bench of this Court by examining all the relevant provisions of law and case-laws has been pleased to allow the aforesaid Petitions in the following terms: - "13. In view of the foregoing discussions, we are of considered opinion that in the absence of prescribed format notified under Section 116A of the Income Tax Ordinance 2001, whereas, nothing has been concealed by petitioners, nor there is any consequence either on income or tax liability of petitioners for non-filing of Foreign Income & Assets Statement along with return of income for Tax Year 2019, the penal provisions of Section 182 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, could not be invoked. Particularly, when respondents have failed to establish willful default or mens rea on the part of petitioners. We derive analogical guidance from ???the Non delegation Doctrine??? which is well established in jurisprudence and is attracted in the instant circumstances. Issuance of notices under section 182(2) cannot be validated, therefore, impugned notices having no support of lawful authority are hereby declared as illegal, hence, of no legal consequence. For these reasons, the petitions were allowed vide short order announced on 22.12.2020.

Sindh High Court, Karachi
Topic: CONSTITUTION OF PAKISTAN, 1973
Tag Line:WRIT PETITION UNDER ARTICLE 199 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN, 1973. A Divisional Bench of this Court comprising of Mr. Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi and Mr. Justice Mahmood A. Khan, has pronounced the judgment on 09.10.2020 in the case of Ghulam Ali Bhatia & others v. Federation of Pakistan & others (along with connected petitions), whereby, the petitioners have expressed their grievance against impugned amendment in SRO 583/2017 dated 01.07.2017, for being discriminatory, as according to petitioners, the concession and reduction in payment of duty and taxes to the Ship Breaking Industry in respect of re-rollable and re-meltable scrap is violative of Article 25 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973, whereas, a declaration has been sought to the effect that petitioners, who are the importers and manufacturers of re-rollable and re-meltable scrap, may be given the similar concession/reduction in tax liability as according to the petitioners, they fall within the same class of persons. The aforesaid petitions have been dismissed by the Divisional Bench of this Court while holding that petitioners, who are importers of re-rollable and re-meltable scrap are covered under PCT Heading 7204.4910, whereas, ship (vessel) imported by the Ship Breaking Industry are covered under PCT Heading 8909.0000, hence cannot be treated at par. It has been further held that through impugned amendment, reduction of tax liability has been granted as an incentive for the revival of ship breaking industry pursuant to policy decision, whereas, there seems no legal impropriety in the impugned amendment. No additional liability or burden has been created through impugned amendment, in violation of constitutional provisions or the law, therefore, the allegation of discrimination amongst the same class of person is otherwise misconceived. Reliance has been placed in the case of Messrs Elahi Cotton Mills Ltd. and others vs. Federation of Pakistan and others (PLD 1997 SC 582), wherein, it has been held as under:- "(vi) That the tests of the vice of discrimination in a taxing law are less rigorous. If there is equality and uniformity within each group founded on intelligible differentia having a rational nexus with the object sought to be achieved by the law, the Constitutional mandate that a law should not be discriminatory is fulfilled."

437) 5674/2020 Const. P. M/s Spectrum Enterprises (Petitioner) V/S Fed. of Pakistan and Others (Respondent)
Sindh High Court, Karachi

Topic: Custom Act (section 81)
Tag Line:Sub-section 2 of Section 81 caters for a situation when the goods are allowed to be cleared or delivered on the basis of provisional determination, the amount of duty, taxes and charges correctly payable to those goods shall be determined within six months from the date of provisional determination. The time is further extendable provided the officer concerned may in the circumstances of exceptional nature and after recording such situation extends period of final determination, which shall in no case exceeds ninety days.2 Proviso to sub-section 2 provides the calculating mechanism of the period prescribed in subsection 2 of Section 81. Sub-section 3 of Section 81 provides the mechanism on completion of final determination. The amount already paid or guaranteed shall be adjusted against the amount payable on the basis of final determination and difference between the two amounts shall be paid forthwith to or by the importer as the case may be. --Indeed the ???Explanation??? in a statute/enactment does form an integral part to the extent of explaining and elaborating meaning of the word in the section3 and the purpose is to explain, clarify, add or subtract something by clarification 4, however, the word provisional assessment is neither used in sub-section 1 nor in sub-section 2. It is sub-section 1 which secured differential amount on provisional determination and not provisional assessment 5. If the interpretation of respondent is accepted then customs would never bother to determine it finally and would enjoy benefit of not doing anything after provisional release. We may observe that the respondent conceded that the cause of delay in final determination is not attributable to the importer.

Tag Line:Petitioner, Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation (Pvt.) Ltd administrative control of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources. In respect of an area of 3818.81 acres at Lakhra, District Jamshoro, for which a mining-lease was granted to the Petitioner for mining coal for a period of thirty[30] years. These renewal applications remained pending with the Respondent No.2, and though in the meantime both the mining-leases of the Petitioner expired in April 2015, the date of such expiry stood extended .Respondent No.2 had granted mining-permits to SLCMC without waiting for a decision on the Petitioner???s appeals pending under Rule 71 of the SMC Rules. Mr. Jawad Dero, the learned AAG Sindh, and Mr. Jaffar Raza, learned counsel for SLCMC had objected to the maintainability of these fresh petitions on the ground that the Hyderabad Petitions for the same relief were still pending. we agree with Barrister Zameer Ghumro that these petitions cannot be held to be not-maintainable merely on the ground that the Hyderabad Petitions are also pending. Appellate Authority manifests that the refusal to renew the Petitioner mining-leases was only for the reason that the Petitioner was Federal Government entity and the Government of Sindh had already made up its mind to award a mining concession in the same area to the SLCMC, a company wholly owned by the Government of Sindh. Having found no reason to interfere in the discretion exercised by the Respondent No.2 The petitions succeed for prayer clause 3 in terms that the impugned Notifications dated 09-07-2018 granting mining permits to SLCMC (Respondent No.3) having been granted in contravention of Rule 68 of the SMC Rules, the same are without lawful authority and are therefore set-aside judgment shall be dispatched by the office to o be placed in C.P. No. D-7643/2018 pending before this Court at Karachi The petitions stand disposed off.

Hence, any notice that was issued belatedly i.e. beyond the statutory requirement would have no bearing. --The consequential point that arises is whether a timeframe prescribed under Section 11(5) of the Sales Tax Act, 1990 for issuance of show-cause notice and after the expiry of timeframe prescribed, could be extended and/or resurrected a time barred cause under SRO 394(I)/2001 dated 21.05.2009 read with Section 74 of the Act, 1990.

Topic: Constitution of Pakistan (Labour Law)
Tag Line:We find that the private respondents were deprived of their due process rights. They were not confronted with the material based on which their services were verbally terminated. Even otherwise, the process followed by the petitioners was sketchy, one-sided, non-transparent, and not supported even by the law. We, therefore, find that both the Learned SLC and SLAT were justified in passing the impugned orders and recorded valid and cogent reasons for doing so, therefore, no ground existed for re-evaluation of the evidence, thus, we maintain the consolidated order dated 22.10.2011 passed by the Sindh Labour Court (SLC) in grievance Applications of the private respondents and common order dated 31.10.2012 passed by the learned Sindh Labour Appellate Tribunal (SLAT) in Appeal No. KAR-273/2011, Appeal Nos.

Sindh High Court, Karachi
Topic: Income Tax Ordinance, 2001
Tag Line:Faced with the presumptive taxation of imports, supplies, contract, exports etc. under section 80-C and 80-CC of the Income Tax Ordinance, 1979, where tax payers challenged the constitutionality of presumptive taxation, the Supreme Court of Pakistan in its landmark judgment of Ellahi Cotton Mills (Supra) held that section 80C and 80CC (Section 148 and 153 and 154 in Ordinance 2001) provides for presumptive taxation of income within the category of presumptive tax as under the same the persons covered by them pay a pre-determined amount of presumptive tax in full and final discharge of their tax liability in respect of the transactions on which above tax is levied. If Entry 47 is read in isolation without reference to Entry No.52 one can urge that Entry 47 does not admit the imposition of presumptive tax as the expression ???tax on income??? employed therein should be understood as to the working out of the same on the basis of computation as provided in the various provisions of Ordinance. Thus, it can be held that presumptive tax is in fact akin to capacity tax i.e. capacity to earn.

Topic: Pakistan Telecommunication (Reorganization) Act, 1996, Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation Act, 1991, Civil Servants Act, 1973, Constitution of Pakistan
Tag Line:Subsection 2 of Section 36 of Pakistan Telecommunication (Re-Organization) Act, 1996 enabled an employer, with the consent of the transferred employee, to award appropriate compensation in lieu of whatever benefits they could have gained at the end of their tenure. These employees were given service benefits, which were not even matured at the time the employees opted VSS, hence it cannot be said that any guarantee or secured right was arbitrarily snatched by the employer. These employees could have continued to serve without opting VSS. VSS is a binding contract and nothing about its unconstitutionality was established nor is there any substance to render it as void under the Contract Act. In the entire scheme of Pension Act and rules there is nothing to prevent the employees from entering into a contract (for any prompt gain) in bargain with their post retirement or pensionary benefits.

The alleged Contemnors have filed statements showing compliance of the order dated 10.9.2015, passed by this Court with the assertion that they offered the post of Balder in BS-1 to the son of the Petitioner, Contempt Proceedings is always between the Court and the alleged Contemnor, thus its scope cannot be enlarged. the post of Field Assistant under Rule-10-A & 11-A of Sindh Civil Servant , for the simple reason that the aforesaid post can only be filled as per recruitment Rules. The explanation offered by the Respondents vide (CMA 14152/2015),prima facie, is tenable under the law as the Petitioner???s son was offered the post of Beldar in BS-1 by the Respondents in compliance of order dated 10.9.2015 passed by this Court; but the same was refused by the Petitioner???s son. we are satisfied with the explanation offered by the alleged Contemnors that substantial compliance of the order dated10.9.2015 passed by this Court has been made in its letter and spirit, therefore at this juncture, no case for initiating Contempt Proceedings is made out against the alleged Contemnors.

Tag Line:- Indeed, it appears that it was more than a month after opening of the bid that the appellant made an attempt to rectify its material inability by furnishing a separate/counter bank guarantee from Bank AlHabib for both the tenders. This deficiency could not have been resurrected as by then the ship sailed. These belated attempts would have amounted to a modification of the tender documents, which is not permissible under Rule 31 of Rules 2004. Eventually only those whose technical bids were found to be in consonance with the terms of the invitation, were liable to be considered for further steps and were considered accordingly. -Petitioner being aware of the said tender conditions participated and having participated in the tender cannot challenge or dislike prerequisites meant for technical qualification. He could only expect judicious treatment within the playing rules however, it was too late for appellant when it realized that playing conditions were not palatable to it. The situation faced by appellant based on the aforesaid facts is not res integra as a number of judgments are in the filed covering the issue as settled law. - Even if I have to measure bidding terms on the touchstone of malice and mala fide, I would come out with understanding that these terms are for every one and not to exclude anyone. These are commercial transactions and decisions in this regard should base on strict compliance of terms of tenders whereas equity and fair play based on financial offer is not primary concern. Even if someone intends to impress by showing better financial offer, he has to qualify first on technical grounds. It is the overall impact till completion of job that needs serious consideration by procuring agency. Whether a bidder has the ability to deliver as per terms of tenders and having capacity to ensure project???s completion should be the primary concern of procuring agency. There is thus nothing which could lead to conclude that the process ended up in a decision of rejecting technical bid of appellant was flawed. - Any term within frame of law is also not open for a judicial review even under the hierarchy of procurement laws as Rule 25 enables the procuring agency to require bid security not exceeding five per cent of the bid price to be furnished by every bidder and procuring agency may save its effectiveness for a period as they required in terms of Rule 26.

With the passage of time, the principle governing immunity has undergone a change. National Courts in different jurisdictions, specially where there exists constitutional dispensation, have generally narrowed down the scope of immunity, whether constitutional, diplomatic or any other type of immunity. One of the reasons for adopting such view, while interpreting the law or clauses relating to immunity is that the concept of immunity is to be balanced with the accountability and those rights guaranteed as fundamental and human rights.

Topic: PROPERTY
Tag Line:The appellant has attempted to challenge, by filing Civil Appeal No.44/2007, both the preliminary decree dated 10.10.2000 and final decree dated 28.03.2007. The appellate Court, on consideration of the accounts and the reports of the Mukhtiarkar, did not find any illegality or irregularity committed by the Senior Civil Judge while passing final decree. It is also a matter of fact that in her own examination-in-chief, she has stated that at the time of marriage, the age of his father-in-law was about 80 years and that two of her sons Abdul Majeed and Abdul Rahman were jobless. In the pleadings, respondents No.3 and 4 i.e. Mst. Hanifa and her husband Nazeerullah s/o Haji Sultan Muhammad, whose property is under dispute, admitted that his father-in-law / father was an old man and needed care and help in feeding and lodging, which was done by defendant No.3 (appellant), hence when enquired from the counsel Mr. Lawrence that he was on death bed, Mr. Lawrence honestly and categorically conceded. He, however, was of the view that he was in full senses.

Topic: Isra University Act, 1997
Tag Line:1. A post to which a person is nominated is not a tenured post. His nomination can be withdrawn at any time by the nominating authority, although it has to be seen whether nominating authority is constituted legally. 2. This principle of reading down is applied when a provision is capable of more than one interpretation and one or more of those interpretations would render the other provisions either redundant or illusory or in conflict with main frame of the Statute. In such cases, Courts will read down the provision in a manner that saves the provision . 3.since the induction of the council members has been successfully disputed by petitioners; hence I am of the view that the audit of the foundation is also inevitable. 4. Claim of rent by foundation is neither illegal nor illogical, however one may argue on the quantum and an arbitrary way of fixing the rent. This should have been done without any influence and coercion from either side.

Sindh High Court, Karachi

Topic: Family Courts Act, 1964 (section 14(1)(b)), Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, 1997 (sections 105), Guardian and Ward Act, 1890 (Section 25), Guardian and Ward Act, 1890 (47), Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, 1997 (Section 102 subsection 15 ), Guardian and Ward Act, 1890 (Section 9), West Pakistan Family Court Rules, 1965 (Rule 6), Citizenship Act, 1951
Tag Line:The primary object of the Guardian & Ward Court or for that matter appellate Court was to discover as to where the welfare of the ward lies and how such welfare can be effectively achieved and maintained and should not have concerned with the visitation rights of father. --Jurisdiction Issue- The child may be an American national by birth and he may have been permanently residing in Kuwait with parents but he is a dual national. When the respondent/ father surrendered to the jurisdiction of the trial Court by moving an application under section 25 of the Guardian & Wards Act, it was promptly responded and replied by filing written statement and jurisdiction conceded by petitioner. --Once petitioner acquiesced to the jurisdiction, she cannot approbate and reprobate at the same time. The question of jurisdiction even if made dependent on ordinary residence of ward, it may not be a pure question of law that can be assailed at any forum or at any time. For that it has to be specifically pleaded so that the facts in this regard be brought to the notice of the Court. It is, thus, not a simple question of law rather a mixed question of law and facts which requires determination through evidence. --Movement or Restriction in Movement of ward-The ward belongs to a family which can afford a better upbringing, education and environment either in Pakistan or anywhere in the world which was restricted and curtailed by restriction in his movement. The Courts below should not have seen welfare only from the angle that the father/respondent must not miss his opportunity to see his child but it must also be seen from the angle as to whether a ward who is capable of studying abroad, in case the opportunities are available to him, should he be deprived of on account of the fact that father must not miss a visiting opportunity? --In any other case it would have been the welfare considering the situation of the ward while being at Karachi and only Pakistani national but the situation here is different as the child is privileged to have access to any educational institution around the world including Pakistan. An educational institute or an environment for which most of the children could only dream for. Every child has its own peculiar circumstances and the welfare demands may vary. The restriction in the movement in the present case appeared to be a tool to settle score with mother/petitioner but it will not serve as the welfare of the child. The father/respondent who had raised serious allegations against the mother/petitioner as he claimed that she is not fit to take care of ward yet is not serious in having the custody of the ward, although none of them stands proved in evidence. There are ways and mechanism to regulate the movement which is not achieved by of restricting the movement.

Sindh High Court, Karachi

Tag Line:-The petitioner while making such statement of alleged purchase has not realized the burden he took over. There is a marked difference in the probative value of entering into possession for the first time as tenant, and continuing in possession with claim of change in its nomenclature. Where occupant claiming his continuous possession as other than original character, it is expected that some trustworthy evidence in furtherance of his subsequently claimed character would be shown, failing whereof his admitted character would concur (Reliance2). -This PT-1 was then followed by another PT-1, which is claimed by the respondent No.1. This PT-1 then followed by notice under section 18 of Sindh Rented Premises Ordinance, 1979. While recovering taxes in terms of the gross annual rental value, as assessed by authority under ibid Act, constructive possession of the respondent No.1 had been identified and regulated. It may not constitute the ownership but it does authorize the one who was found in constructive possession, to regulate his possession as required under the law. This was thus a jura possession recognized by Sindh Urban Immovable Property Tax Act and rules framed thereunder of 1958. Thus having constructive jura possession with reference to property in question, an authoritative recognition in the shape of PT-1 was issued. -This PT-1 would enable the respondent No.1 to deal with his possession as deem fit and proper under the law. It is not in dispute that respondent No.1 was and is responsible for payment of annual gross rental value and it is not in dispute that in terms of Section 14 of Sindh Urban Immovable Property Tax Act, 1958, the tax recoverable from any person on account of any building or land, if found in arrears, it shall be lawful for the proscribed authority to serve upon any person paying rent in respect of that building or land or any part thereof to the person from whom the arrears are due, a notice for the recovery of such taxes may be issued to the tenants or one from whom such taxes are required in terms of PT-1. It also enables the authority that if a person willfully fails or neglects to comply with the notice, the authority may after giving him an opportunity of being heard proceed against him as it could have proceeded under the provisions of this act against the defaulter of the tax. -Thus, in my view this PT-1 authorizes respondent No.1 to deal with this property as deem fit and proper and a lawful notice under section 18 of Sindh Rented Premises Ordinance, 1979 was issued to the petitioner to apprise him about the current situation as to the change of PT-1 and authority of new landlord.

664) 2013/2015 Suit M/s. A.F Ferguson & Co., & Others. (Plaintiff) V/S Pakistan & Others. (Defendant)
Sindh High Court, Karachi
Tag Line: In all these Suits the claim of the Plaintiffs was to the effect that in terms of Section 92 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 there is no compulsion or restriction that it is only the firm which can file its return and pay taxes on the income, as at the same time, the partners of the firm are also qualified to file their return and pay the tax accordingly and in that situation the firm would not be liable to pay any tax on the income on which the partners have already paid the tax. According to the Plaintiffs, Section 92 does not prohibit the partners from paying tax on their income as against the same by the firm. Their further case was that the inverse of what is provided in Section 92 is permitted as not being prohibited or restricted; however, the contention of the Plaintiffs is held to be misconceived as this would defeat the intention of the legislature and would rather amount to do legislation in favour of the Plaintiffs. The law as it stands today provides a clear mechanism and the principle of taxation which has to be applied on the firm, whereas, nothing could be read into the said provision . It is settled law that the function of the Courts is only to expound and not to the legislate. In view of such position, all Suits have been dismissed by holding that the firm i.e. the Plaintiff No. 1 in all these Suits was required to file its return and pay the tax accordingly; and not the partners individually in respect of the income received from the association of persons or the firm; and once the tax is paid by the firm, then the partners are not required to pay any tax on such income.

Topic: Civil Procedure Code CPC (O. XXXIX, Rule 1 & 2 Dismissed.)
Tag Line:This court sees acts of the plaintiffs aimed to throttle livelihood of the deceased???s legal heirs and put them to the caprice of the Plaintiffs, an act offensive to dignity of human thus the Family Agreement sought to upkeep family???s honour in fact is nothing but a sophisticated form of honor killing, tossing the widow (alongside her children) to the dust of injustice. For what has been reduced in the foregoing, I do not see any prima facie case of plaintiffs, neither balance of convenience in their favour, nor they would suffer any irreparable losses as their claim is only for money. The application is hence dismissed.

Sindh High Court, Karachi

Topic: Federal Excise Duty, CONSTITUTION OF PAKISTAN, 1973, Sindh Sales Tax on Services Act, 2011
Tag Line:The impugned enactment is for area which formed part of province i.e. Sindh hence for all intent and purposes Article 142(c) is significant. It emphasized Provincial Assembly to legislate with respect to any matters not enumerated in the Federal Legislative List. The impugned Act whereby Serial No.6A was introduced to the First Schedule forming part of Table-II is introduced through a Money Bill in terms of Article 73 of Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. No other Entry of Part I of the Federal Legislative List could then be taken into account as this was a money bill which is primarily covered from Entry No.43 to 53 as routed through Article 73 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. The federation has already conceded and we are not required to deliberate on the point that for a tax to fall under the said Federal Legislative List it must be covered by Entries No.43 to 53. This, as claimed to be a sales tax/Federal Excise Duty, is apparently covered in terms of Entry 49 to the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. Thus, the 18th Amendment excludes the Federation by virtue of the Entry 49 from the competence to legislate on the subject of services rendered in their province on account of SSTA, 2011 w.e.f. 01.07.2011. --It is neither in the competence of the federation to legislate after 18th Amendment nor it relates to federation to invoke Entry No.58 of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. Similarly, Entry No.59, as relied upon by the respondents??? counsel, that these matters are incidental or ancillary to any matters enumerated in this part, is also inconsequential as this cannot be invoked independently unless a reciprocal entry is found within the competence of federation. One may argue this Entry 59 may have a bridged with Article 151 but we have already discussed non-application of Article 151.

Sindh High Court, Karachi

Topic: Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 (Section 236A)
Tag Line:Section 236A of Income Tax Ordinance, 2001 requires a person, making sale by public auction or auction by a tender of any property or goods (including property or goods confiscated or attached, either belonging to or not belonging to the Government, local Government, any authority, a company, a foreign association declared to be a company under sub-clause (vi) of clause (b) of subsection (2) of section 80, or a foreign contractor or a consultant or a consortium or Collector of Customs or Commissioner Inland Revenue or any other authority, shall collect advance tax, computed on the basis of sale price of such property and at the rate specified in First Schedule, from the person to whom such property or goods are being sold. This provision is as clear as crystal however it is followed by an explanation inserted by Finance Act 2020 for the removal of doubt that the expression of sale of public auction or auction by tender include renewal of license previously sold by public auction or auction by a tender and where payment is received in installments, advance tax is to be collected with each installment. As we observe that there is no necessity of any explanation or any clarification as section 236A is clear in its entirety. Notwithstanding the above, even the explanation of clarificatory nature operates retrospectively as it only provides an assistance in interpreting the provisions correctly in terms of intention of the legislature, subject to however if a contradictory situation is reached by the Court interpreting the basic provisions as against explanation. We are, therefore, of the view that the applicant described as an agent collecting advance tax from the bidders/occupants/lessees/ licensees etc. to whom the premises/property was given either by way of public auction or tender or by any other mode and includes renewal of such document.

755) 4387/2014 Const. P. Pakistan Tibbi Pharmaceuticals Manufacturers (Petitioner) V/S Fed. of Pakistan and Ors (Respondent)
Sindh High Court, Karachi
Topic: DRAP ACT, Sindh Food Authority Act, 2016, CONSTITUTION OF PAKISTAN, 1973
Tag Line:The petitions arise under and in relation to the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan Act, 2012 (???DRAP Act???). petitioners contend, the DRAP Act cannot, does not and should not apply to various products as manufactured, sold, used or imported by them, including Unani medicines, prescriptions and preparations, We start with the first set of questions, which relate to the constitutionality of the DRAP Act as enacted under Article 144. This Article originally had two clauses, of which the second was omitted by the 8th Amendment in 1985. two changes made by the 18th Amendment, one was necessitated by the omission of the Concurrent List, and need not detain us. The other, which will require some comment, was that originally Article 144 applied only if two or more Provincial Assemblies passed the necessary resolutions. The present Constitution of course had two Legislative Lists on its commencement. The competences listed in the Federal List were exclusive to the Federation, those on the Concurrent List were common, and those which were not enumerated were exclusive to the Provinces. VThat ability of course is one of the defining characteristics of federal legislative power, since in respect of matters that lie in the Federal domain by right Parliament can make laws for the whole of Pakistan or any part thereof. It would be unduly restrictive of the purpose and intent behind Article 144 if Parliament, while making the law for which it has been given power cannot include therein provisions that relate to matters in the Federal domain as of right. Secondly, a provincial law made subsequent to the law made by the Federation under Article 144 may override or impliedly repeal the latter. This follows directly from the express provision that the Provincial Assemblies may amend or repeal the law made by Parliament. The 1976 Act, in like manner, ???fractured??? and ???receded???. It became provincial legislation and hence territorially bound. It now so operates in this and all other Provinces. It must be kept in mind that this position has remained unaltered, and is unaffected by the enactment of the DRAP Act under Article 144. Whatever may be the relationship of, and interaction between, the two laws, the 1976 Act does not now transcend or cross provincial boundaries in the manner of the DRAP Act. It is therefore our conclusion that in the present case, the scope of the legislative competence entrusted to Parliament in terms of Article 144 is governed by the terms of the resolution passed by the Punjab Assembly. Within 30 days of announcement of judgment the Authority under the DRAP Act shall issue proper guidelines, Simultaneously with posting the guidelines on its website, the Authority shall issue notice to each petitioner in the petitions to which this para applies. Interim orders made in any petition to which this para applies shall continue but will lapse 30 days from the date on which the guidelines are posted as above or the date on which the determination is made, whichever is later. following petitions are dismissed: CP D-4387/2014 and CP D-1684/2017. e following petitions are disposed off in terms of para 50 herein above: CP Nos.

Tag Line:For the aforesaid reasons, the instant bail application merits no consideration is dismissed. However, the learned trial court is directed to expedite the case; dispose of the same preferably within two months from the date of this Order; and, it is made clear that the direction given by this Court in bail matters may not be taken lightly and valid reasons are to be assigned if the same direction is not complied with as now it is well-settled law that ???to have a speedy trial is the fundamental right of the accused being universally acknowledged???. Under the Criminal Procedure Code, a smooth methodology and Scheme for a speedy trial are provided whether it is held by the Sessions Court or Magistrate, in recognition of the said right of an accused person. This principle shall apply more vigorously to the trials before Special Courts, constituted under the CNS Act, or any other special law so that unnecessary delay, a much less shocking one in its conclusion is avoided in all circumstances. Any unreasonable or shocking delay in the conclusion of the trial, before Special Courts, would amount to the denial of justice, or to say, denial of fundamental rights to the accused, of speedy trial. On the aforesaid proposition. In this context, I am fortified with the decision rendered by the Hon???ble Supreme Court of Pakistan in the case of Imtiaz Ahmed vs. The State (2017 SCMR 1194).

Tag Line:Supplies involving exempt and taxable purchase cannot be treated in a generalized way. Applicant while having input tax adjustment of the above period forgot to apply rule 25(3) of the ibid rules 2006 which does not permit the adjustment of input tax in its entirety when they deal with both taxable and exempt supplies. --Learned counsel for the applicant has argued to the extent of claiming refund in terms of section 10 of the Sales Tax Act. The scheme of Section 10 caters for an event other than applicant???s case. In terms of the facts and circumstances of the case where input adjustment is claimed on both exempt and taxable supplies as is the case of applicant before lower forums, we have to apply an unambiguous provision that deals the event and i.e. 8(2) of the ibid Act which directly deals with the input tax in respect of the supplies involving both exempt and taxable supplies.

The Petitioners clearly failed to avail statutory remedies under the law while the impugned determination was being made and even thereafter, nonetheless there is no cavil that the petitioners owe FCA component to K-Electric and liable to satisfy this debt. These instant Petitions being devoid of merit are accordingly dismissed.

Topic: Import Policy Order 2020, Imports and Exports (Control) Act, 1950
Tag Line:We do not find any necessity of an independent license from the federal government in presence of Import Policy Order, 2016 w.e.f. 14.6.2018 followed by Import Policy Order, 2020. The Import Policy Order, 2016 in terms of the subject in hand was amended by virtue of SRO No.772(1)/2018 on 14.6.2018 which provides that the individual license holders or arms dealership license holders [as issued by Home Department, Province of Sindh] are allowed to import arms and ammunition. It was clarified by Federal Government, Ministry of Commerce & Textile vide letter dated 06.09.2019 that the import of arms and ammunition does not require any import authorization from the Commerce Division Islamabad after issuance of SRO No.772(I)/2018 dated 14-06-2018. For convenience and ready reference, text of [i]. Letter dated 06.09.2019, [ii]. Section 6(1) and [iii]. Entry No.62 Part I of Appendix B of IPO, 2020 ---Section 4 of ibid Act 2013 is related to the license for the manufacture/sale of arms and ammunition which is not the case here. Section 5 deals with the import, export and transportation which for all intent and purposes means import and export within the province of Sindh and we, while read it down, do not find it to be ultra vires to the Constitution. It primarily concerns with the person who is brining into and taking out of Sindh or any of its districts, arms, ammunition or military stores of a firearm or convert an imitation firearm into a firearm unless a license has been issued in accordance with the provisions and rules thereunder. Similarly, in section 9&10 the words import and export are in relation to brining into and taking out of the province of Sindh and any of its districts and it does not mean import of any arms and ammunition from outside the country which is an independent subject of the federal government hence, we read down these provisions to be within frame of Sindh Arms Act, 2013 and are not ultra vires the Constitution.

Topic: Promotion (petitioner has been superseded HPSB in its meeting held , discussed supra on account of a bad reputation. CP dismissed.)
Tag Line:In our view, to qualify for the promotion, the least that is expected of an employee is to have an unblemished record. This is the minimum expectation to ensure a clean and efficient administration and to protect the public interest. An employee found not fit for promotion cannot be placed at par with the other employees, and his / her case has to be treated differently. While considering an employee for promotion his / her entire service record has to be taken into consideration and if a promotion denies him / her promotion, such denial would not be illegal or unjustified under the service jurisprudence.

Topic: Customs Act, 1969 (section 138 of Customs Act, 1969 read with Customs Rules 86 to 89 laid down in SRO 450(I)/2001)
Tag Line:Since section 138 deals with the frustrated cargo and Rule 86 has defined what frustrated cargo would be. It is thus one which will brought into customs station by reason of inadvertence or misdirection or where consignee is untraceable or has dishonoured his commitments and the consignor wishes to have it re-shipped to him. Since the consignee has refused or dishonored his commitments, the consignor immediately acted upon by moving an application for re-export on 17.04.2018 and that is exercised under Rule 88 of the ibid Rules. There was no occasion for the Collector of Customs to have avoided or discarded the application of the consigner for the re-export of the vehicle as it was and is within the definition of frustrated cargo and permission ought to have been followed in terms of Rule 89 on Collector being satisfied which he should under the relevant circumstances of the case as in our view the vehicle came out as a frustrated cargo.

Tag Line:Petitioner has called in question the rejection of his candidature for the post of District Public Prosecutor (BS-19) in Law Department, Government of Sindh vide letter dated 18.10.2019 issued by Sindh Public Service Commission Hyderabad (SPSC) on the analogy that he did not possess ten (10) years' experience as an Advocate of High Court ---In our view, the submission of respondents will be counterproductive and would prevent good Advocates from accepting appointments in civil service if this analogy persists. The second limb of the argument of the respondents is that once an Advocate is appointed as a Law Officer in any department of the Government of Sindh, he cannot be appointed to the post of District Public Prosecutor has to be ruled out for the understanding that it does not appeal to logic--We, therefore, hold that ten (10) years' service experience includes a period of serving as a law officer, which counts active practice at the bar which petitioner possesses and therefore is qualified to appear for the subject test for the position of District Public Prosecutor--In the light of the above facts and circumstances of the case, the competent authority of SPSC is directed to allow the petitioner to appear in the subject interview and after conducting his interview announce the result accordingly within two (02) weeks from today.

Tag Line:Petitioners have impugned the Notification whereby they have been relieved / repatriated to their parent department that is Karachi Development Authority. The reason assigned by the competent authority in the said impugned Notification is that the Honorable Supreme Court of Pakistan passed directives vide order dated 01.08.2016 on CMA No. 243/2016 in C.P No.108-K of 2014 to repatriate the officers/officials absorbed in Malir Development Authority to their parent department .In our view, once the Hon??????ble Supreme Court has passed order the terms that any official working on deputation or otherwise absorbed in the MDA shall immediately report back to his parent department this Court has no justification to take contrary view of the same. We are of the view that the only remedy available to the Petitioners is to approach the Hon??????ble Apex Court in Review and not this Court under Article 199 of the Constitution. Consequently ,both the Constitution Petitions merit no consideration and are dismissed with no order as to cost

Prima facie, the calculation made by the respondent No.2 is not correct for the reason that the Hon'ble Supreme Court of Pakistan directed to determine the pension from the date of restoration of their commuted pension at the rate at which they were drawing 50% remaining pension which means that the petitioner at the time of his retirement commuted his 50% pension and that portion of pension is to be increased after a period of 15 years (commuted period). As per record, the increases made on commuted pension have already been drawn by him, As per record, the increases made on commuted pension have already been drawn by him, therefore, his claim that at the time of restoration of his commuted portion he was drawing Rs.28211.03 and increases to be made in that amount is misconceived. The calculation prepared by respondent as well as Accountant General Sindh is in accord with the judgment passed by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of Pakistan, therefore, we are satisfied with the same.

Sindh High Court, Karachi
Topic: Financial Institutions (Recovery of Finances) Ordinance, 2001
Tag Line:We may observe that the aforesaid provision of Section 9 of the Financial Institutions (Recovery of Finances) Ordinance 2001 is not comprehensive and exhaustive in deriving conclusion regarding the jurisdiction of the Court as the recourse in terms of Section 15 have to be made to discover as to what is the precise jurisdiction vested on the Banking Court under the Ordinance in terms of Section 15. No doubt that the preamble/title of the Ordinance provides that it has been primarily for the purpose of recovery of finance. The other recourse that is available under section 15 of the Ordinance, 2001 is off-course is the mechanism which provides for the recovery of the loan by way of sale of the mortgaged property with or without intervention of the Court and the jurisdiction in terms of Section 15 of the Ordinance, 2001 is also open and extended as far as the disputes of the sale of the mortgaged property is concerned. Such disputes if at all, raised are to be dealt with in terms of Section 15 of the Ordinance, 2001. There is no cavil to this proposition and perhaps to this extent the jurisdiction of the Banking Court extends so far as it relates to a dispute for the sale of the mortgaged property, which is not the case here.

Tag Line:The Petitioners hold 14.45% shares in respondent Company and are aggrieved by the notice as well as the proceedings of the impugned Meeting dated 19.10.2019 and the resolutions passed thereon, whereby, related party transactions were approved in respect of 2 Companies, which have certain common Directorship. It is their case that they hold more than 10% of the shareholding and are, therefore, qualified to institute present proceedings, under s.136 of the Companies Act, 2017 which according to them has seriously prejudiced their interests. According to them statement of material facts under Section 134(3) of the Act, annexed with the impugned notice of meeting, failed to include the minimum information required under Regulation-5 of the Company (Related Parties Transactions and Maintenance of Related Records) Regulations, 2018, whereas, the meeting was also conducted without following proper procedure and has deprived the Petitioners from exercising their rights. However, the Petitioners have failed to make out a case for indulgence; hence, this petition fails and is accordingly dismissed with pending applications.

Sindh High Court, Bench at Sukkur

Topic: Constitution of Pakistan (199)
Tag Line:Precise facts are that Petitioners have challenged the Wheat Release Policy 2020-21 dated 14th October 2020 (said Policy), on the ground that Clause (xii) whereof is violative of the Food Stuffs (Control) Act, 1958, and the Food-grains (Licensing Control) Order, 1957, and consequently, be set aside and Flour Mills of Petitioners be given wheat as per the uniform Policy. The legal team of Respondents has stated that it is purely an executive matter regarding which no petition of the nature is maintainable. Crux of the rule laid down in these decisions is that ordinarily under Article 199 of the Constitution, High Court cannot interfere in the policy matters of the Executive, except if it is violative of law or is product of mala fide; whereas, the mala fide is also explained, inter alia, that unless an un rebuttable material is on record with regard to a specific plea of mala fide and not a vague one, the decision or action complained of, cannot be annulled or declared illegal This principle has been evolved through judicial pronouncements and opinions of jurists, the crux of which is that punishment must fit the crime. When on the record there is no evidence that Petitioners / Flour Mills have entered into plea bargain with NAB, then Clause (xii) cannot be stretched to include Petitioners / Flour Mills, and such an action of Respondents is hit by this doctrine of proportionality also and is unreasonable and discriminatory. Petitions are accepted only to the extent, that the Clause (xii) of the Wheat Policy is not applicable to the present Petitioners / Flour Mills and they are entitled to get their respective share / quota of wheat in accordance with the present Wheat Policy 2020???21 like other Flour Mills established and operating in the Province of Sindh.

Sindh High Court, Karachi

Topic: Service
Tag Line:It is the general principle of jurisprudence that the law takes its effect from the date of promulgation and ???interpretation of the said law??? cannot be subjected to the doctrine of retrospective effects unless expressed specifically in the judgment, therefore, Mustafa Impex???s case is to be applied prospectively, in general. It is the existence of law at the relevant time that counts, which may have been interpreted at a later date. Since the deficiency in the appointment notification as far as Provincial Cabinet is concerned, is not questioned no challenge could be thrown. The principle we derive from the conclusion of the aforesaid three judgments is that Mustafa Impex only invalidates those actions retrospectively which were impugned in that lis and not all others, so by virtue of aforesaid principle the notification for the appointment of the petitioner is saved whereas it set a mechanism for future course i.e. issuance of impugned notification.
