Surendra Pal Singh Shami v. Chairman, Shreyas Gramin Bank And Another - WRIT - A No. 5158 of 2007  RD-AH 2009 (7 February 2007)
Hon'ble Amitava Lala, J.
Hon'ble V.C. Misra, J.
Order of suspension is not a punishment. Normally such order is passed by an authority to maintain the independence of the enquiry. Therefore, Court can only interfere with the order of suspension in the rarest of the rare cases where it appears to be apparently punitive or malafide in nature or without jurisdiction. This is not such a case so that we should interfere with it. Hence, no order is passed with regard to order of suspension.
However, non-interference with the order of suspension will not entitle the authority to keep the enquiry proceeding pending indefinitely, therefore, such enquiry proceeding will be concluded preferably within a period of three months from the date of communication of this order.
Thus, the writ petition is disposed of.
No order is passed as to costs.
