Smt. Brindawati Shukla v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 20156 of 2007  RD-AH 7958 (27 April 2007)
Hon'ble Ashok Bhushan, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner.
By this writ petition the petitioner has prayed for quashing the order dated 23.12.2006 Annexure-8 to the writ petition by which order the claim of the petitioner for compassionate appointment on account of the death of petitioner's husband Bal Mukund Shukla has been rejected. Bal Mukund Shukla was working on daily wage basis in the department as electrician. He was engaged in the year 1986 as muster roll worker and died on 9.5.2002. By the impugned order it has been held that the petitioner's claim is not covered by the rules namely, U.P. Rajay Vidyut Parishadiya Mritak Sewakon Ke Ashriton Ki Bharti Niyamawali, 1975. Learned counsel for the petitioner challenging the order contended that that the petitioner's case is covered by rule 2-A (3) Explanation . He submits that since he was working for more than three years ' period on daily wage basis the same should be treated as regularly appointed. The perusal of rule 2-A indicate that the employee of Board covers three categories (i) who is confirmed employee (ii) even if temporary appointed on regular basis (iii) even if appointed not on regular basis, is working in a regular vacancy for continued period of three years . The explanation clarifies that the regularly appointed in regular capacity must be as far as possible after following the procedure for recruitment. The petitioner's husband being working on daily wage basis it cannot be said that he was engaged by following the process of recruitment. The view taken by the respondents that the petitioner's case is not covered by 1975 Rules does not suffer from any error. No ground is made out to interfere.
The writ petition is dismissed.
