State of Uttar Pradesh & others ............................... Respondents
Hon'ble Ashok Bhushan, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner. Sri K. S. Kushwaha appears for the respondents no. 2 and 3. Sri D.K. Rai has appeared for the respondent no. 4.
By this writ petition the petitioner has prayed for quashing the orders dated 13th of July, 2007 and 18th of May, 2007. The petitioner was working in the Department of Basic Education. The petitioner was sent on deputation by order dated 5.5.2000. By order dated 18.5.2007 the petitioner was repatriated to her parent department against which order the petitioner filed writ petition No. 3255 of 2007 which was disposed of by this Court on 4.6.2007 directing consideration of the petitioner's representation. The representation of the petitioner has been considered by the Director, Rajya Pariyojana and rejected. The representation has been decided taking the view that the petitioner being only on deputation and her deputation cannot be extended more than five years in accordance with Government order dated 19.1.1988. In so far as personal difficulty of the petitioner is concerned, it was observed that it is open for the petitioner to make a representation to her parent department for her posting accordingly.
Learned counsel for the petitioner challenging the order contended that the petitioner's deputation was extended upto 31st of March, 2008 by order dated 23.3.2007 which has been cancelled. Several other persons whose deputation has also become for more than five years, are working on deputation but the petitioner has been repatriated to parent department.
I have considered the submissions of counsel for the petitioner and perused the record.
The petitioner being only deputanist, she has no right to continue on the deputation post. The petitioner was taken on deputation under the Scheme for " Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan " and it is for the Department to consider that the deputanist is to be recalled or not. Reference of Government order dated 19.1.1988 has also been made which provided that the maximum deputation admissible is of five years. The mere fact that the earlier decision was taken to extend the period of deputation was not an impediment in repatriating the petitioner to her parent department. The deputanist has no right to continue on the post . No ground is made out on which the repatriation order of the petitioner can be interfered with.
The writ petition lacks merit and is dismissed.
