Satya Narain Sharma v. Plant Protection Officer And Others - WRIT - A No. 13272 of 1997  RD-AH 4935 (26 October 2005)
Court no. 31
Civil Misc. Writ Petition no. 13272 of 1997
Satya Narain Sharma vs. Plant Protection Officer
Hon'ble Bharati Sapru, J.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner Sri Manav Bhargava holding brief of Sri Akhilesh Mishra and have perused the record.
The controversy involved in the instant case is that the petitioner claims that he has been wrongly terminated by way of the impugned order dated 31.3.1997 (Annexure 12 to the writ petition). The termination order records that the petitioner was engaged as a temporary employee in the Plant Protection Division in the Agricultural Department. It appears that as per the terms of employment, the services of the petitioner were terminated after giving him one-month notice and without putting any stigma against him that is to say it was a discharge simplicitor.
Learned standing counsel has placed before the court appointment letter issued to the petitioner (Annexure 1 to the writ petition) which records that the petitioner was engaged on a temporary post and his services were liable to be terminated at any time without giving any reason after giving him one month notice. It is not denied by the petitioner that he has accepted appointment letter and the terms & conditions contained therein. The nature of appointment was completely temporary and subject to the terms & conditions of the letter of appointment. The impugned termination order has been issued by the respondents under the terms & conditions of letter of appointment. It cannot be said that any unfairness has been done to the petitioner.
In view of the facts and circumstances of the case as narrated above, I do not think that the petitioner has made out any case, which would warrant interference by this court in exercise of its extraordinary jurisdiction as conferred by Article 226 of the Constitution.
The petition is, accordingly, dismissed.
