Haryana State and another
CORAM:- HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE VINEY MITTAL
PRESENT: Shri Sushil Bhardwaj, Advocate for the appellant.
Shri D.S.Nalwa, DAG, Haryana.
The plaintiff having concurrently lost before the two Courts below has approached this Court through the present Regular Second Appeal.
The plaintiff filed a suit for declaration challenging the order dated May 12,1997 passed by defendant No.2, General Manager, Haryana Roadways, Karnal whereby his salary was fixed at the minimum pay scale for a period of four years.
The facts which emerge from the record that the plaintiff was posted as driver with Haryana Roadways. He was charge sheeted under Rule 7 of the Punjab Civil Services (Punishment and Appeal), Rules 1987.
The suit was contested by the defendants. It was claimed that while passing the punishments orders, procedure and the rules had been duly followed.
Both the Courts below have concurrently held that no evidence had been led by the plaintiff to show that the departmental rules/procedure had not been followed while passing the punishment orders. Consequently, the suit of the plaintiff was dismissed and his appeal failed before the learned First Appellate Court.
It is well settled that a Civil Court cannot sit in appeal over the departmental proceedings or the punishment orders passed by the a competent authority.
Nothing has been shown that the findings of fact recorded by the learned Courts below suffer from any infirmity or contrary to the record.
No question of law, much less any substantial question of law, arises in the present appeal.
