Girija Shanker v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 37772 of 2007  RD-AH 14297 (21 August 2007)
Hon'ble Ashok Bhushan, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner.
By this writ petition the petitioner has prayed for quashing the resolution dated 23.7.2007 Annexure-6 to the writ petition. Petitioner's case in the writ petition is that the petitioner joined as Class- IV employee on 10.6.1987 which was also approved. The post of Assistant clerk fell vacant on 31.1.2007 on which post petitioner claims right of promotion. The Committee of Management passed resolution dated 23.7.2007 taking the view that the respondent no. 4 Ramesh Chandra Bhartiya who is working in the institution on supernumerary post with effect from 1.2.1992, has been directed to be absorbed. Learned counsel for the petitioner challenging the resolution contended that the post is reserved for Scheduled Caste category candidate and the respondent no. 4 could not have been absorbed on the said post. Regulation 106 of Chapter III of the Uttar Pradesh Intermediate Education Act, 1921 provides that supernumerary post shall be treated to be created till the vacancy in the said institution or in any other institution in the district is available. As soon as the vacancy arises the supernumerary post shall automatically come to an end. Present is case where the respondent no. 4 who was working on a supernumerary post has been absorbed on the vacancy which came into existence on 31.1.2007. The question of applying the rule of reservation on such vacancy does not arise. The person posted on supernumerary post has rightly been absorbed. There is no error in the order warranting any interference.
The writ petition lack merit and is dismissed.
