for the petitioners.
M.M. KUMAR, J. (Oral)
This petition filed under Article 226 of the Constitution prays for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to refix the gratuity of the petitioners, who have retired prior to 1.4.1995, and to grant all consequential benefits and interest, in terms of the orders of this Court passed in C.W.P. No. 7446 of 2003, decided on 23.9.2005 (P-3).
For the relief claimed in the instant petition, the C.W.P. No. 13204 of 2006
petitioners have already sent a legal notice, dated 25.3.2006 (P-4) to the respondents.
Without going into the merits of the case, we deem it just and appropriate to direct the respondents to take cognizance of the legal notice, dated 25.3.2006 (P-4) sent by the petitioners and decide the same expeditiously preferably within a period of four months from the date a certified copy of this order is presented to them. If the claim of the petitioners is found to be meritorious and decided in their favour then the benefit accruing to them shall be disbursed within a further period of three months thereafter. It shall be appreciated if a speaking order is passed.
Petition stands disposed of in the above terms.
