CIVIL MISC. WRIT PETITION NO.21534 of 1988
Jhon Robert .....Petitioner
Central Government Industrial Labour Court,
Kanpur and another. .....Respondents
Hon'ble Bharati Sapur, J.
This petition is filed against an order of the Presiding Officer dated 6.9.88 in proceedings under Section 33 C (2) of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947.
The admitted case is that the petitioner was given his designation on 30.4.81. The designation was that of an overseer.
The petitioner has moved this application under Section 33 C(2) claiming benefit of the order granting designation on 30.4.81 for the period 1961 to 1981 i.e., to say with retrospective effect.
It is settled law that the proceedings under Section 33 C(2) are summary in nature and relief can be given to a workman under the said provisions only when a right has crystallized in his favour. This is the law, which has been laid down not in one but in number of cases. I seek to rely on the case of Muncipal Corporation of Delhi Vs. Ganesh Razak as reported in 1995(1) S.C.C.235. Learned counsel for the petitioner has not been able to show anything to the Court from which any right is crystallized in favour of the petitioner for the period 1966 to 1981.
Learned counsel for the respondent has argued that proceedings under Section 33 C(2) are in the nature of execution proceedings and are of a very limited nature. Any issue, which requires determination afresh, or investigation is outside the jurisdiction of the Court under Section 33 C(2).
Having heard learned counsel for the parties and having perused the record, I am of the opinion that the order passed on 6.9.88 does not suffer from any illegality or defect, which can be judicially reviewed by this Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
In the result, the order dated 6.9.88 is upheld. The writ petition is dismissed. There will be no order as to costs.
