KURIAN JOSEPH, J.W.P.(C) No.37271 of 2003 Dated 21st December, 2006.

The writ petition is filed mainly with the following prayers :-
(i) "Issue a writ of certiorari or any other appropriate writ, order or direction calling for the records leading to Ext.P14 and quash the same; (ii) Issue a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate writ, order or direction commanding the respondents to permit the petitioners to continue as Watchman/Helper/ Attender/ Clerk/ Computer Operator in the service of the third respondent with all service benefits as if Ext.P14 order were never issued." Since Ext.P14 is passed only by the second respondent, it is for the petitioners to approach the Government, particularly since the second respondent has relied on a direction issued by the Government in passing the impugned order. Accordingly, the writ petition is disposed of as follows :- In the event of the petitioners approaching the Government within two months from today, the matter will be duly considered by the Government with notice to the first two petitioners as the representatives of the rest of the petitioners, and the third respondent and appropriate orders in accordance WP NO.37271/03 2 with law thereon will be passed expeditiously. While passing orders as above, the contention of the petitioners that the judgment in O.P.No.20042/98, based on which the Government issued the direction was set aside by this Court by the judgment in W.A.105/01, will also be taken into consideration by the Government. The interim order dated 26.11.2003 will continue till such time.
