MUKUL MUDGAL, J. (oral) -
(1.) Rule DB. With the consent of the learned counsel for the parties, the
writ petition is taken up for final hearing.
(2.) This writ petition is an off shot of OA No. 110/1994 filed by the
respondent No. 1 before the Jodhpur Bench of Central Administrative Tribunal (in
short 'CAT') against the adverse remarks recorded in the ACR and the recorded
warning. The said OA was allowed by the judgment dated 13th November, 1998 by
the CAT, Jodhpur Bench in the following terms:-
"i) The impugned order dated 10.1994, OM dated 15.1.96, 25-2-86, 6.5.87 and
7.3.89 are quashed;
ii) the recorded warning issued vide respondents' memo dated 15.1.86 is
set aside and the adverse entries in the ACRs for the year 1985-86 of the
applicant are expunged and declared as non-est.
iii) the applicant will be entitled to all service benefits which he would
have been entitled to but for the existence of the recorded warning and the
adverse remarks in the ACRs for 1985-86."
(3.) In order to implement the above judgment of the CAT, the petitioner
took a view that since the post of Station Director for which the promotion was
sought was a selection post a DPC was required to be held. Accordingly, a
review DPC was held on 23rd November, 2001. The said review DPC declined the
promotion to the respondent No. 1. The respondent No. 1 filed a Contempt
Petition No. 12/2002 before the CAT, Jodhpur Bench challenging the convening of
the review DPC which contempt petition was dismissed holding as follows:-
"In the contempt proceedings, this fact cannot be considered as to whether the
review DPC was justified or not in not recommending the applicant for promotion.
It can be the subject matter of fresh O.A.";
