Default KA High Court: Fines to be paid back to offenders, since notice expired in 2004

Under The Karnataka Police Act, the police can impose fines of Rs 100 on each of the 25 civic offences (See A to Y of offences ,below) including spitting on city streets, talking indecently in public and letting loose an animal on the road. But the notification for this was in force only till December 2004, after which they forgot to re-issue the notification. So all the fine they have collected in the last 11 years under these offences is illegal.

Can the high court of Karnataka take such a decision? Isn't it against the welfare of society?

our courts seem to just follow the rulebook blindly without thinking. similar thing with the juvenile in the delhi rape case who is going to be a free man soon.
