Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing for the respondent. With the consent of learned counsel for the parties, this writ petition is being disposed of at this stage without calling for a counter affidavit.
The case of the petitioner is that she retired from the Government Service on 30.6.1991.
