Chattu Lal v. Managing Director (p.c.d.f.) Ltd. Lucknow And Others - WRIT - A No. 59893 of 2005  RD-AH 2697 (12 September 2005)
Hon'ble Amitava Lala,J.
Hon'ble Praksh Krishna,J.
Miss Sarita Jhingan,learned counsel appeared for the petitioner and Mr. G.D.Misra, learned counsel appeared for the respondents.
An order has been passed by the authority concerned on 25.7.2005 in a disciplinary proceeding of the petitioner only by making censure entry. The writ petition has been filed on 6.9.2005 beyond the prescribed period for appeal and without exhausting the remedy as prescribed under Regulation 86 of U.P. Cooperative Socities Employees Service Regulation 1975. Learned counsel for the petitioner cited two cases reported in AIR 1951 (All.) 257 ( Moti Lal & Ors. Vs State of U.P. ) and 2001 (3) UPLBEC 2571 ( Pradeep Kumar Singh vs State of Sugar Corporation) to satisfy the court that in spite of alternative remedy the petitioner can file a writ petition for the purpose of appropriate relief. We found in both the judgments that in an exceptional circumstance that can be done and we are aware of the same. But the present case is not an exceptional circumstance where the provision of appeal will be ignored, therefore, appeal is the alternative remedy. At the time of making appeal if the petitioner found difficulty because of expiry of the period, he can make an application before such authority to exclude the period from the date of order and the date of receiving certified copy of the judgment ready for delivery by the department.
Thus, the writ petition stands dismissed. No order is passed as to costs.
