The petitioner, an Executive Engineer in the service of the 1st respondent - Board is aspiring for promotion to the post of Deputy Chief Engineer.
2. In contemplation of certain disciplinary action he was placed under suspension on 16.10.2004. Thereafter, memo of charges was issued on 30.12.2004 and the petitioner was reinstated in service with effect from 12.6.2006. In view of the pendency of the disciplinary action though he was reinstated, overlooking his claim, a junior was promoted to the post of Deputy Chief Engineer by Ext.P1 order. In the aforesaid background, the petitioner submitted Ext.P3 -representation complaining about the promotion given overlooking his claim and requesting that he be promoted at the earliest.
3. Standing counsel for the respondents confirms the pendency of Ext.P3 before the 1st respondent. Taking into account the pendency of the Ext.P3 before the 1st respondent, I dispose of this writ petition directing the 1st W.P ( C) No. 22964 of 2007 2 respondent to consider and pass orders on Ext.P3, as expeditiously as possible, at any rate within six weeks from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment.
