His grievance is that by the impugned order dated 21.4.1989 passed by the Executive Engineer, his services have been terminated without any notice or opportunity, which is as under :-

It appears that the services of the petitioner were terminated in terms of the appointment letter in which it was provided that the services could be terminated without notice to him.

The controversy involved in this writ petition is covered by the decisions of this Court in catena of cases. Civil Misc. Writ No. 25956 of 1997- Ajay Kumar Sharma V. State of U.P. and others decided on 10.1.2000 reported in (2000)1 UPLBEC-719 may be referred to in this regard wherein it has been held that appointment made under Dying in Harness Rules, 1974 is permanent in nature and cannot be terminated. Hence the condition in the appointment letter that services of the petitioner could be terminated without any notice is against settled position of law. Services of employee cannot be terminated without giving any opportunity of hearing  and except in accordance with law.

Following the ratio laid down in Ajay Kumar Sharma 's case(supra), the writ petition is allowed. Since petitione is continuting in service in terms of interim orders dated 21.8.1990 and is getting salary, month by month, question of issuance of any direction for payment of salary does not arise. It is made clear that in the circumatances the petitioner shall be entitled to all consequential benefits of permanent appointment. No order as to costs.

Dated 14.5.07
