Present: Shri B.K.Bagri, Advocate for the petitioner Shri B.S.Rana, Addl.A.G. Haryana
Shri N.S.Dhillon, Advocate for respondent No.6 Jasbir Singh, J. (Oral)
This writ petition has been filed with a prayer that the directions be issued to the respondents, especially, respondent No.3, to deduct outstanding amount of personal loan of Sh.Shri Ram Saini, Assistant, Office of District Employment Officer, Kurukshetra, from his dues, and deposit that amount with the bank, to clear the loan account of above said person.
It is not in dispute that Sh.Shri Ram Saini had raised a loan from the bank under the Scheme known as "All Bank Saral Loan Scheme", made for salaried persons. At the time of getting the loan amount, he has given following undertaking:-
"Undertaking from the borrower authorizing the Bank to receive money towards his/her terminal dues payable by the employer in case there is any outstanding lying in his/her Loan Account under All Bank Saral Loan Scheme. Also, Irrevocable Letter of Authority given by the borrower to the Bank to deduct loan installments from Savings Bank Account.

It is also not in dispute that Sh.Shri Ram Saini had already died and respondent No.6 is entitled to get benefits, after his death. Money equal to the amount due, is still available with the government. Counsel for CWP No. 14566 of 2006 - 3 -
respondent No.6 states that she has no objection if the said amount is paid to the bank to clear loan account of Sh.Shri Ram Saini, the deceased.
In view of fair stand taken by respondent No.6, we direct respondent No.3 to pay the amount, which is payable to respondent No.6, after death of Shri Saini, to the bank. Needful be done within two weeks from the date of receipt of a certified copy of this order. The balance amount, if any, shall be paid to respondent No.6, thereafter, forthwith.
