Shiv Saha v. Principal Narayan Arya Kanya Snakotar Mahavidyalaya & Ors. - WRIT - A No. 18013 of 2002  RD-AH 5563 (10 November 2005)
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 18013 of 2002
State of U.P. and others........................................Respondents.
Heard Sri Gopal Chandra Saxena, the learned counsel for the petitioner and Sri Ashish Agarwal holding brief of Sri Kshitij Shailendra for respondent no.1 and Sri Neeraj Tripathi for respondent nos.4 and 5 and the Standing Counsel for respondent No3.
The petitioner was appointed as a peon in the institution on a contract basis for a period of one year on an adhoc basis by an order dated 14.3.2001. The appointment order clearly indicated that the term of the appointment would be for a period of one year and that he would be paid remuneration of Rs.1500/- per month and that his services could be terminate at any point of time by giving one month's notice and that in any case he would not be entitled to claim a permanent appointment on the post in question. Upon the completion of the period of one year, the Management extended his services for 45 days by an order dated 13.3.2002. By an order dated 19.4.2002 the petitioner was intimated that his services would come to an end on the expiry of the period, i.e., w.e.f. 1.5.2002. This order has been challenged by the petitioner on the ground that the post is still continuing and that the work is required by the educational institution and, therefore, he should be allowed to continue in service.
In my opinion, the arguments raised by the learned counsel for the petitioner is misconceived. The appointment letter clearly indicates that the petitioner was appointed on contract basis for a limited period and his services has come to an end automatically by efflux of time upon the completion of the period. The appointment order further indicates that the petitioner was not entitled to make any claim on the post in question.
In view of the aforesaid, the petitioner having been appointed on a contract basis for a specified period is not entitled for any relief. The writ petition fails and is dismissed.
