  1. This Execution Case arose out of judgement and order dt. 6.3.09 in this Commission Case No. 44/O/07 when the Decree Holder namely M/s. Ramkrishna Saha, filed this execution case stating inter alia that inspite of communication to Respondent Nos. 1 to 4 seeking compliance of the judgement and order as passed in S.C. Case No. 44/O/07, the Respondents deliberately and negligently did not convey any response thereto. Respondent Nos. 5 & 6 namely M/s. Apex Surveyors Pvt. Ltd. and Central Bank of India respectively, did not contest although notice was duly served, but no relief was prayed from their end.
