Special Appeal Defective No. 408 of 2016, whereby the
intra-court appeal was dismissed affirming the order dated
10.12.2015 passed by the learned single Judge in Writ-A No. 49921 of 2015.
(3.) Brief facts of the case are that respondent Dhirendra Pal Singh was Assistant Store Superintendent with the Irrigation
Department of the State of Uttar Pradesh. He stood retired on
30.06.2009 on attaining the age of superannuation. At the time of his retirement GPF, leave encashment and 70% of
gratuity and pension were cleared, but rest of the 30% of
gratuity and computation of pension were held up. The stand
of the appellants is that there were some discrepancies in the
stock in the store of the department and some enquiries were
going on as to loss caused to the public exchequer. After
making representations when the remaining amount of
gratuity and pension was not cleared, the respondent filed
Civil Suit No. 338 of 2012. However, the same was dismissed
as withdrawn as the appellants/State authorities, vide order
dated 23.07.2015 finally, on the basis of alleged discrepancies
withheld the remaining part of gratuity and pension of the
respondent and, vide order dated 06.08.2015, directed
recovery of Rs.7,26,589/-, from the retiral dues payable to the
respondent, which was challenged in the writ petition.;
