W.P.(C) NO.21132 OF 2005
Dated this the 1st day of August, 2007
J U D G M E N T
The petitioner was a Revenue Officer working in the Aluva Municipality and retired on superannuation w.e.f. 30/6/99. He is challenging Ext.P9 order dated 31/5/05 issued by the first respondent fixing his liability to the extent of Rs.98,382 . The ground on which it is challenged is that, the liability has been fixed in violation of Note 3 under Rule 3 Part III of KSR, in as much as it is beyond the three year period prescribed therein. This contention is unassailable and on that ground petitioner is entitled to succeed. Ext.P9 will stand quashed, but however without prejudice to the right of the respondents to recover the said amount by other means as is permissible under law. Writ petition is disposed of as above.
