CIVIL MISC. WRIT PETITION NO.29747 OF 1998
U.P. State Road Transport Corporation ...Petitioner
State of U.P. and others. ....Respondents
Hon'ble Bharati Sapru, J.
This writ petition has been filed by the petitioner against an order dated 6.6.98 and 21.7.98 passed by the Payment of Wages authority under the Payment of Wages Act.
Under the interim order of this Court, the petitioner had been directed to deposit the amount by order dated 5.10.98 and an amount of Rs.84,414.85 was deposited and, thereafter, released to the respondent workman's heirs on 13.11.98. The amount claimed by the workman was money due to the respondent workman under the award of the Labour Court dated 23.5.96 in Adjudication Case No.108 of 1991. The petitioner Corporation had filed writ petition No.24494 of 1997 against the said award and it has been dismissed by me today.
In view of the order passed in writ petition No.24494 of 1997, the amount had certainly become due to the respondent workman. There is, therefore, nothing left to be decided in this matter. It is, however, made clear that since the entire money has been released to the respondent
workman, the Corporation will not be liable to pay any penalty on the said amount.
The writ petition is disposed of.
Dated : 19.4.06
