ASHUTOSH MOHUNTA, J. (Oral)

The petitioner has prayed for removal of respondent No.4 as Lambardar of village Badanpur, District Jind.

A complaint was filed against respondent No.4 that as he has identified two women wrongly in a case with regard to sale of land, therefore, he should be removed. The Collector ordered the removal vide order Annexure P-1. However, the order of the Collector was set aside by the Commissioner vide order Annexure P-2 on the ground that the Lambardar identified the women in good faith as they were under a veil. In revision, the Financial Commissioner again upheld the order passed by the Collector vide order Annexure P-3. However, in review, vide Annexure P-4, on the basis of the report submitted by the Sub Divisional Officer the Financial Commissioner found that as the Lambardar has been working for a period of 25 years in a satisfactory manner and he had identified the [ 2 ]

women in good faith, therefore, he recalled his orders by giving one chance to respondent No.4 to be careful in future.

Counsel for the petitioner contends that as respondent No.4 has wrongly identified two women, therefore, he should be removed from the post of Lambardar.

We have perused the impugned order and find that respondent No.4 has performed satisfactorily during his tenure as a Lambardar and the identification was in good faith. As the women identified by him were in a veil, therefore, he has rightly been given a chance to be careful in future.

We find no infirmity in the order passed by the Financial Commissioner.

Accordingly, the writ petition is dismissed.
