Smt. Moonga Devi v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - A No. 57745 of 2005  RD-AH 5657 (11 November 2005)
Hon�??ble Rakesh Tiwari ,J
Heard counsel for the parties and perused the record.
It is not denied by the respondents that the petitioner retired from service on 30.4.2005 from an institution of Nagar Nigam, Kanpur Nagar and that she has not been paid the retiral dues and pension. According to Government order dated 13.12.1977 the pension papers of a retired employee should be prepared and sent to the authority concerned for sanction of pension and retiral dues etc., before six months from the date of his retirement.
The controversy of the instant writ petition is squarely covered by the controversy involved in Civil Misc. Writ No.21297 of 2004 Rasheed Ali Vs.State of U.P. and others decided on 20.9.2005.
In the circumstances, no useful purpose would be served by keeping this petition pending, hence the petition is being decided without calling for counter affidavit.
In view of ratio decided in Rasheed Ali�??s case (supra) this writ petition is allowed with the direction that the retiral dues of the petitioner from the due date till the date of payment shall be paid by the respondent nos. 2 and 3 with 10% compound interest within a period of one month from today and they will ensure payment of pension to the petitioner, month by month as and when it falls due, otherwise the State Government will act in accordance with law against the erring officials of Nagar Nigam and will also recover the legitimate amount due to the petitioner as arrears of land revenue within one month thereafter and pay the same to the petitioner forthwith within a week of recovery. Cost is assessed as Rs.5000/- on respondent nos.2 and 3 to be paid to the petitioner within a month for not taking action for payment of pension and other retiral dues within time in accordance with G.O. dated 13.12.77 and in making the poor retired employee run from pillar to post for her legitimate retiral benefits without any just cause.
