Ram Prakash Yadav v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. - 51013 of 2007  RD-AH 16759 (23 October 2007)
HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT ALLAHABAD
Hon'ble Anjani Kumar, J.
The petitioner, who has been transferred by an order dated 22nd August 2007 under the charge of Regional Agricultural Extension Officer, Machhlishahar, Jaunpur, approached this Court by means of this writ petition for quashing of the aforesaid order dated 22nd August 2007 and further a mandamus directing the respondents not to give effect to the aforesaid transfer order etc. on the ground that though he is prepared to hand over charge but nobody is willing to take charge despite nomination by the higher authority.
In these circumstances the transfer being exigency of service, the petitioner has no cause to challenge the order in view of the law laid down by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in the case of Mrs. Shilpi Bose and others Vs. State of Bihar and others AIR 1991 SC, 532.
However, with regard to petitioner's grievance that no one is taking charge, the petitioner should first approach the place where he has been transferred and join there and then come back to Jaunpur within a week to hand over charge of office to respondent no.2.
The writ petition is dismissed with the aforesaid direction.
