Ram Sarup Ganda, (Special Leave to Appeal (Civil) No. 20264 of 2004, decided on 2.8.2006). It is undisputed that the rules known as Haryana Civil Service (Assured Career Progression Scheme) Rules, 1998, have been interpreted by Hon'ble the Supreme Court in the aforementioned C.W.P.

Accordingly, the instant petition is allowed. The needful shall be done in accordance with the time schedule given by Hon'ble the Supreme Court.
