Heard learned counsel for the petitioner as well as Learned Standing Counsel for the State-respondents and Sri Ashok Mehta, learned counsel on behalf of the respondent-Official Liquidator. With consent of the learned counsel for the parties this writ petition is being disposed of at this stage.
It is the case of the petitioners that they are retrenched employees of the erstwhile U.P. Cement Corporation Limited, which has been liquidated vide order dated 8.12.1999.

Cement Corporation Limited have already been absorbed on Group ''C' posts. The petitioners have further submitted that with regard to such grievances, they have already filed representations before the respondent-authorities, which have yet not been decided and hence this writ petition has been filed.
