G.Singh v. State - WRIT - A No. 5863 of 1992  RD-AH 9134 (14 May 2007)
Hon'ble Rakesh Tiwari, J
Heard counsels for the parties and perused the record.
The case of the petitioner is that he was appointed as Seasonal Collection Amin from 16.2.76 to 31.3.1991. His grievance is that the services of Seasonal Collection Amins, junior to him have been regularized but his case has been ignored.
Aggrieved, the petitiooner has invoked the writ jurisdiction by means of this writ petition.
Counsel for the petitioner contended that with a view to deprive the petitioner of continuouly working for 240 days in a calendar year, they create artificial break in service and he vehemently urged that the respondents may be directed to regularize services of the petitioner.
Admittedly, the appointment of the petitioner was seasonal in nature. Relief of regularization of service cannot be granted in the writ jurisdiction in view of decision of Hon'ble Apex Court in State of Punjab and another V. Sardara Singh 1998 (9) SCC-709 holding that relief of regularization in service cannot be granted by High Court in exercise of extraordinary powers under Article 226 of the Constitution.
Accordingly, the writ petition is dismissed. No order as to costs.
