Suresh Shukla v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 37870 of 2003  RD-AH 4289 (17 October 2005)
Hon. Tarun Agarwala, J.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner and the learned Standing Counsel appearing for the respondents.
The petitioner alleges that he was given an appointment on the post of computer operator in the office of respondent no.5. Initially payments were made by cheques and thereafter payments were made in cash. The petitioner alleges that now the salary was not being paid. Consequently, the present writ petition was filed for a mandamus commanding the respondents to pay the salary and permit him to work on the post of computer operator. Subsequently, the petitioner moved an amendment application which was allowed and a prayer was incorporated for quashing the oral order of termination dated 3.11.2003. The respondents have filed a counter affidavit alleging that no post of Computer Operator has been sanctioned by the State Government and, therefore, no such post exists in the department. The petitioner, was however appointed for doing certain job work for which he was paid the remuneration. The petitioner has filed applications given by the respondents for the job work, on which an order for payment of remuneration has been made. This fact has been denied. The petitioner has no where stated that he was not doing any job work and that he was performing the regular work of computer operator in the department.
In view of the aforesaid facts, that no sanctioned post existed in the department coupled with the fact that the petitioner has not filed any appointment letter issued in his favour, the petitioner is not entitled for any relief.
The writ petition fails and is dismissed.
