LAWS(SC)-1982-1-24
SUPREME COURT OF INDIA (FROM: PUNJAB & HARYANA)
Decided on January 19,1982

G D Hans Appellant
VERSUS
HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA Respondents

JUDGEMENT

- (1.) This appeal by special leave is filed against the order dated 28/07/1977 passed by the High court of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh dismissing the writ petition C. W. P. No. 1094 of 1977 filed by the appellant at the stage of admission. On going through the papers we are of the view that this was a fit case which should have been admitted by the High court and disposed of by a judgment on merits. We, therefore, set aside the order passed by the High court and remand the case to the High court to dispose of the writ petition on merits. We request the High court to consider the submission which was made before us by Shri P. P. Rao that without prejudice tothe merits of his case that he might be permitted to proceed on voluntary retirement instead of the order of dismissal passed against him. We leave this request to be considered by the High court. Since disciplinary proceedings were initiated in the year 1973 we feel that it is desirable that this case should be disposed of by the High court as early as possible and preferably before the end of April, 1982. We hope that the High court will be able to dispose of the case as suggested above.;
