THOTTATHIL B.RADHAKRISHNAN, J.W.P(C).No.36620 OF 2004
Dated this the 13th day of July, 2007
The petitioner, then a conductor in the K.S.R.T.C., submitted his resignation on 11.6.1995. He has filed this writ petition in 2004 pointing out that on 16.9.1999, he filed a requisition to permit him to re-join duty as conductor. The plea made by him is that he had submitted his resignation on 11.6.1995 because he was ill and the respondents were refusing to grant leave. He was also under the threat of disciplinary proceedings for absence. According to him, he has been completely cured off his ailments and it was therefore, that he applied on 16.9.1999 to re-join duty.
2. Respondents have filed a counter affidavit on 28.2.2005 specifically asserting that the petitioner submitted a resignation which was not in proper form and that following the rejection of that resignation, he later submitted a resignation in proper form on 7.7.1995, which was made voluntarily and with a request that WPC.36620/04 Page numbers his resignation may be made effective from 7.7.1995. That application was considered by the Corporation and effected his resignation and the resultant vacancy has been filled up subsequently. In view of the aforesaid uncontroverted statement of the respondents, the relief sought for by the petitioner cannot be granted. The writ petition fails. The same is dismissed accordingly. No costs.
