KURIAN JOSEPH, J.W.P. (C). NO. 2181 OF 2004
Dated this the 23rd day of August, 2007.
J U D G M E N T
Petitioner approached this Court aggrieved by Exhibit P2 letter issued by the second respondent whereby his promotion has been withdrawn after his retirement. There is no counter affidavit.
2. After an incumbent retired from service whether it is permissible to withdraw the promotion itself is a question to be considered. The fact remains that the petitioner has worked in the promoted post. The contention of the respondents is that there was no such post available. In any case, the petitioner should have been atleast issued notice before the impugned letter was issued. I quash Exhibit P2 without prejudice to the liberty to the respondents to pass orders in accordance with law, after affording an opportunity for hearing to the petitioner. This writ petition is disposed of as above.
