CORAM: HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE M.M. KUMAR
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE M.M.S. BEDI
PRESENT: Mr. C.S.S. Sisodia, Advocate,
for the petitioner.
M.M. KUMAR, J. (Oral)
The petitioner has prayed for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to consider his representation and legal notice (P-1 & P-2 respectively). The representation and legal notice are in respect of posting the petitioner from one place to another. Under law there is no legal right to seek posting at a particular place. It is well settled, no mandamus could be issued by this Court for deciding such like legal notice as there is no right to seek posting at a particular place, as has been laid down by a Constitution Bench judgment of Hon'ble Supreme Court in the case of Dr. Shivendra Bahadur v. The Governing Body of the Nalanda College, 1962 Supp. 2 SCR 144.
In view of above, we dismiss the writ petition.
April 25, 2006 JUDGE
C.W.P. No. 172 of 2005
