Through the instant writ petition, the petitioner claims pension and other retiral benefits which became payable to the petitioner on his retirement on attaining the age of superannuation. In this behalf, it is pointed out that the petitioner retired on attaining the age of superannuation on 31.1.2006. He thereafter addressed a legal notice to the respondents dated 2.6.2006 (Annexure P4). It is, however, pointed out that no decision has been taken thereon till date. Learned counsel for the petitioner states that the petitioner will be satisfied if the instant writ petition is disposed of with a direction to respondent No.3 i.e. the District Food Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Controller, Mansa, requiring him to take a final decision on the legal notice dated 2.6.2006 (Annexure P4).
Notice of motion.
On our asking, Mr. Ashok Aggarwal, Additional Advocate General, Punjab, accepts notice on behalf of respondents No.1 to 3.
CWP NO. 15108 of 2006 2
Learned counsel for the respondents states that he has no objection to the disposal of the instant writ petition in terms of the prayer made by the learned counsel for the petitioner.
In view of the above, without going into the merits of the claim raised by the petitioner, we consider it just and appropriate to dispose of the instant writ petition by directing respondent No.3 i.e. the District Food Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Controller, Mansa, to take a final decision on the legal notice dated 2.6.2006 (Annexure P4), by passing a well reasoned speaking order within three months from the date of receipt of a certified copy of this order. In case the petitioner is found entitled to any monetary benefits, the same shall be calculated and released to him within a further period of one month.
Disposed of accordingly.
Order dasti, on payment of usual charges.
