Hon'ble Ashok Bhushan, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner and Sri A.K. Yadav appearing for the respondent no. 3.
By this writ petition the petitioner has prayed for mandamus directing the respondent No. 3 to appoint the petitioner as Principal in Navjeewan Kishan Inter College, Mawana, Meerut or in any college where the post of Principal is lying vacant. Petitioner's case is that the petitioner was selected as Principal by the U.P. Secondary Education Services Selection Board and he was allocated Sarvoday Inter College, Bulandshahr. Petitioner's case is that one Pratap Singh who was working as ad hoc Principal in Sarvoday Inter College filed writ petition No. 11316 of 1999 which writ petition was disposed of on 30th September, 2004 directing the Director of Education to consider and decide the representation within two months. The Director of Education passed an order on 21.7.2005 taking the view that selection of Baljeet Singh in Sarvoday Inter College was not valid whereas the names of two senior teachers were not forwarded. The Director of Education has, however, observed that U.P. Secondary Education Services Selection Board should take steps for absorption of the petitioner. Subsequently, the District Inspector of Schools has again written a letter dated 1.5.2007 to the Secretary for absorption of the petitioner. Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that no steps have yet been taken by the U.P. Secondary Education Commission and Selection Board as per order of the Director of Education dated 21.7.2005. Sri A. K. Yadav appearing for respondent no. 3 submits that the Secretary be directed to take decision within a specified period.
In above view of the matter no useful purpose will be served in keeping the writ petition pending and calling for counter affidavit , ends of justice be served in disposing of the writ petition directing the respondent no. 3 to consider and take appropriate decision in the matter expeditiously preferably within a period of three months from the date of production of a certified copy of this order.
With the above observations the writ petition is disposed of.
