J.B.KOSHY & T.R.RAMACHANDRAN NAIR, JJ.W.P.(C).NO. 3393 OF 2004
Dated this the 3rd day of April, 2007.
Koshy, J.Petitioner and first respondent in the Writ Petition were recruited under the Sports Quota in relaxation to the normal recruitment rule as Lower Division Clerk and were allotted to the office of the 5th respondent herein. They joined the department on 31.8.1984. Both of them were not having the prescribed typing test before their recruitment as Lower Division Clerks. But the petitioner passed the typing test on 25.2.1986 where as the first respondent herein passed the typing test only on 18.5.1987. It is the case of the petitioner that he was considered senior. He was promoted in the vacancy in the year 2003. Then first respondent challenged it before the Central Administrative Tribunal. The case before the Central Administrative Tribunal was that respondent was considered as senior. In view of Annexure A5, by which those who pass the test after two years will lose seniority. Respondent relied on Annexure A11, wherein Annexure A5 was withdrawn and decided that seniority will be taken up according to advise as well as confirmation. However, it is the case of petitioner that in paragraph 3 in A11 itself, it is stated that the W.P.(C).NO. 3393 OF 2007 2 seniority as on the date of Annexure A11 will not be affected. Department has filed a seniority list before this court. On going through the order we are of the view that these facts were not considered by the Tribunal. Effect of A5, A11, who was considered as senior, when A11 was passed etc. were not considered. Therefore, Ext.P4 is set aside and case is remanded back to the Tribunal to reconsider the matter. The Writ Petition is disposed of accordingly.
