CORAM: HON'BLE MR.JUSTICE J.S. KHEHAR
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE S.D. ANAND
PRESENT: Mr.H.S. Batth, Advocate for the petitioner.
J.S. Khehar, J. (oral)
The petitioner is stated to have discharged duties in the office of the Chief Electoral Officer for the period from 9.1.1998 to 14.2.1998. This factual position has been acknowledged. Despite the aforesaid, the petitioner was denied both compensatory leave, as well as, honorarium. The claim of the petitioner is that he should be granted either of them. In order to claim either of the aforesaid benefits, the petitioner approached the Central Administrative Tribunal, Chandigarh Bench, Chandigarh (hereinafter referred to as the `Tribunal') by filing Original Application No.252-CH of 2006. The same was dismissed by the Tribunal on 19.4.2006, by holding that the plea raised by the petitioner was barred by limitation stipulated in section 21 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985.
We required learned counsel for the petitioner to explain to CWP NO.17810-CAT of 2006 2
us how he could overcome the determination rendered by the Tribunal.
Learned counsel for the petitioner, however, could not tender any explanation to wriggle out of the provisions of section 21 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985.
In view of the above, we find no merit in the instant writ petition. The same is, accordingly, dismissed.
