Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing for the respondents. With consent of the learned counsel for the parties, this writ petition is being disposed of at this stage without calling for a counter affidavit.
It is the case of the petitioners that they have all been working as Seasonal Collection Peons since long. It has been submitted that in terms of the U.P. Collection Pens Service Rules, 2004, 50% of the posts of Collection Peons are to be filled up from amongst the Seasonal Collection Peons and the remaining 50% by direct recruitment. The submission is that there are posts of Collection Peons lying vacant but the respondent-authorities are not taking any steps for filling up the posts of Collection Peons from amongst the Seasonal Collection Peons. It has been submitted that on the basis of seniority, the petitioners would be entitled to be considered for the same but no action has been taken despite the petitioners having filed several representations in this regard.
Having heard learned counsel for the parties and considering the facts and circumstances of this case, this writ petition is finally disposed of with the direction that in case if, with regard to his grievances made in this writ petition, the petitioner files a fresh comprehensive representation before the respondent no. 2, the District Magistrate/Collector, Kushinagar alongwith a certified copy of this order, the same shall be considered and decided by the said respondent, in accordance with law, as expeditiously as possible, preferably within two months from the date of filing of the same.
With the aforesaid observations/directions, this writ petition is finally disposed of. No order as to costs.
