As per your query it is understood that you need information regarding the meaning of certain terminology which is used in Court proceedings.

Meaning of case disposed-

A case disposed means the case is completed in the terminology of court proceedings. A civil or criminal case is said to be disposed when all the issues or changes in the case it has been disposed of. It is done on the actual date of dismissal.

The common reasons for case disposal include a dismissal, a guilty plea, or a finding of guilty or not guilty at trial by either a judge or jury.

The Supreme Court has passed an order in Hussain v. Union of India that suggested various steps that High Courts should take to dispose of criminal cases, particularly bail petitions, in a speedy manner. This is the latest case in which the Supreme court of India starting from the Hussainara khatoon case recognized speedy trial as a fundamental right under Article 21.

Case is uncontested and allowed means –

It means the claim/allegations made by the petitioner in petition is accepted by the court as true and whatever is asked by the petitioner is granted by the Court.

Hope it helps!

You have not posted the material facts. Is it a civil or criminal case? If the latter what are the offences charged? Which court? What is the case No.?

Case closed means finally decided, whereas uncontested means that no one wanted to put up defence and agree to the relief claimed.
