The Settlement Agreement is taken on record,” noted the Court in its Order. 

The petition is accordingly disposed of in terms of the settlement agreement, said the Court.

They had sought recall/suspension/waiver of the license fee sought to be charged by the respondents. It was contended by the petitioners that the full license fee and mess charge could not be charged by the respondent no. 3 in view of the fact that petitioners had to leave the accommodation in view of the lockdown and pandemic. 

It was submitted by respondent no 3 that in terms of the settlement all agreed amounts have been paid by the petitioners and accordingly now there are no claims against the petitioners.
