On Tuesday, Calcutta High Court in the Case of Mostafizur Molla v. The State of West Bengal & Ors asked for the personal appearance of a School Headmaster for non-compliance with an earlier Order of the Court in which the involved school was directed to file an Affidavit outlining the reasons why the Petitioner could not be granted a No-Objection Certificate (NOC).

Justice Abhijit Gangopadhya acknowledged that the Court’s previous order dated January 21, 2022 had been communicated to the school authorities through email on January 24, 2022.

Besides this, even after the Court’s Orders, no Affidavit detailing the reasons for the non-issuance of the NOC was filed by the school authorities.

The following was noted by the Court:

“Even after having a copy of Court’s Order which is dated 21st January, 2022, neither the school filed any report in the form of an Affidavit nor did the school gave the Petitioner No-Objection.”

During the Hearing, the Petitioner’s Counsel told the Court that the Headmaster had instructed the Petitioner to submit the Court’s order issued on January 28, 2022 through a letter which is dated January 29, 2022.

Furthermore, the Court was told that on January 25, 2022, the Petitioner had given a Copy of the Order dated January 21, 2022 to the school.

The Court ordered that the Petitioner should communicate the Order to the school through email and that it would be regarded as a good service.

Further, the matter has been listed for February 8.
