It has also been averred that the arrears of salary have been paid to the petitioner and case for grant of family pension has been prepared and sent to the Accountant General (A&E), Haryana vide memo dated 27.10.2006. Similarly, ex-gratia employment case has also been sent to the competent authority for approval.
In view of the fact that effective steps have been taken to implement the directions issued by this court, I do not deem it appropriate to continue with this petition which is accordingly disposed of with a direction to the respondents as well as the Accountant General (A&E), Haryana to finalize and release family pension to the petitioner forthwith and not later than one month from today.
