Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 15514 of 2000
Inayat Ali Vs. State of U.P. & others
Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as learned Standing Counsel appearing for the respondents. Pleadings have been exchanged and with consent of learned counsel for the parties, this writ petition is being disposed of at this stage.
The petitioner is a Sub-Inspector in the Civil Police. The grievance of the petitioner is that he ought to have been promoted as Circle Inspector in the Civil Police from the date his juniors had been promoted.
In the counter affidavit, it has specifically been stated that promotion to the petitioner has not been granted as he had not completed the requisite period of posting as Station Officer. It has been stated that for consideration of promotion of a Sub Inspector to the post of Circle Inspector, the mandatory requirement is that he ought to have been posted as Station Officer for three years. At the relevant time, the petitioner is said to have completed only two years and five months as Station Officer. In the supplementary affidavit filed by the petitioner, it has been stated that during pendency of this writ petition, the aforesaid period of three years as Station Officer has been completed by the petitioner and thus he would now be entitled to be considered for promotion as Circle Inspector.
Without going into further merits of this case, in the aforesaid facts, this writ petition is finally disposed of with the direction that the case of the petitioner for promotion as Circle Inspector may be reconsidered and if the petitioner is now found to be eligible for promotion to the post of Circle Inspector, the same may be granted to him in accordance with law, within three months from the date of filing of certified copy of this order before the Deputy Inspector General of Police (Personnel), Police Head Quarter, Allahabad, respondent no.3. The petitioner is given liberty to also file a comprehensive representation, annexing there with all the requisite documents in support of his claim.
With the aforesaid directions, this writ petition is finally disposed of. No order as to cost.
