The challenge is on Ext.P6 Government Order dated 21.11.2003, to the extent it treats the period of suspension of the petitioner as eligible leave. The period of suspension is from 3.10.2002 to 21.7.2003. As per Ext.P6, taking note of the appreciable conduct on the part of the petitioner, the proposed disciplinary action has been dropped. However, the period of suspension was directed to be treated as eligible leave. Except for the statement that "the period of suspension will be treated as eligible leave", there is no consideration as to why the period is not treated as duty, despite the appreciable conduct of the petitioner. That apart, according to the petitioner, as per Ext.P11 Government Order dated 25.6.2001, the petitioner had been completely exonerated of the charges levelled against him. Thus it is fairly clear that there is no proper application of mind with regard to the exercise of power under Rule 56 of Part III K.S.R. with regard to the regularisation of the suspension period. I quash Ext.P6 to the extent of the regularisation of the suspension WP NO.11001/04 2 period with a direction to the Government to consider the matter afresh with notice to the petitioner, on proper application of mind on all relevant aspects and to pass appropriate orders within three months from the date of production of a copy of the judgment. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
