State of U.P. & Others
Hon'ble Rakesh Tiwari, J.
Heard learned counsel for the parties and perused the record.
The Standing Counsel at the out-set raised a preliminary objection that the controversy involved in this writ petition is covered by the decision of this Court rendered in the General Manager N.E. Railway, Gorakhpur & Others Vs J.R.Khatnani & Others, 1975 (31) F.L.R. 246, wherein it is held that once an employee is transferred and posted to a particular place acceptance of the transfer order by the employee is immaterial and even though he may join his duties or physically may not go to the new place of posting he will deemed to be posted there in the eyes of law and his place of posting cannot be deemed to have changed merely because he disobeys the transfer order.
He states that in the instant case the petitioners have been transferred from the State of Uttar Pradesh to the State of Uttaranchal as they have been shown in the list of employees transferred to the State of Uttaranchal. In view of the aforesaid decision they will be deemed to have been transferred to the State of Uttaranchal, as such the writ petition would be maintainable before Uttaranchal High Court.
The learned counsel for the petitioners contends that the petitioners have neither been relieved nor served with any such order of transfer. It is further contended that some persons from the aforesaid list of employees have approached this Court and have been granted interim order.
List this case for 10.7.2006 for addressing the appropriate Court on the question of jurisdiction.
Status quo as on date shall be maintained till 10.7.2006.
While listing the case next the name of Sri Satish Mandhyan shall also be shown as the counsel for respondent-Union of India.
