Rin Salishi Board will be constituted for each Upazila (now thana) by Gazette
Notification consisting of one Chairman and not less than two members but not
more than four members. In the instant case, the impugned notice was coram non
judice having been passed by the Chairman of the Board alone in the absence of
other members. When the order complained of itself suffers from inherent lack
of jurisdiction, non-compliance with the alternative remedy of appeal does not
bar a writ petition in the High Court Division.
