The petitioner, who was a Sewadar/peon in the employment of the respondents, is stated to have retired on attaining the age of superannuation on 31.8.2005. The grievance of the petitioner is that no retiral benefits including pension, death-cum-retirement gratuity, leave encashment etc., have been released to the petitioner till date. On the issue in hand, the petitioner is stated to have submitted a legal notice dated 4.10.2005 (Annexure P1). It is, however, submitted that even a decision on the aforesaid legal notice has not been taken by the respondents.
Learned counsel for the petitioner states that the petitioner CWP NO.20239 OF 2005 2
would be satisfied if respondent No.2 is required to take a final decision on the legal notice dated 4.10.2005 (Annexure P1).
In view of the above, without going into the merits of the claim raised by the petitioner, we consider it just and appropriate to dispose of the instant writ petition by directing respondent No.2 i.e Deputy Director, Urban, Local Bodies, Ferozepur, to take a final decision on the legal notice dated 4.10.2005 (Annexure P1), by passing a well reasoned speaking order, within three months from the date of receipt of a certified copy of this order.
In case the petitioner is found entitled to any monetary benefits, the same shall be calculated and released to the petitioner within a further period of one month.
Disposed of accordingly.
Order dasti on payment of usual charges.
