VIJAY MANOHAR SAHAI, J. -
(1.) WE have heard Mr.Gajendra P.Baghel, learned advocate appearing for the petitioner.
(2.) THIS writ petition has been filed by the petitioner challenging the order of the Central Administrative Tribunal,
Ahmedabad Bench, Ahmedabad, dated 03.05.2011 in Original
Application No.29/09 along with MA 49/09 as mentioned in the
prayer of the writ petition.
The petitioner was serving as a part time sweeper under the respondents. She joined as part time sweeper in the year
1984. In December, 1987, she was given work for 7 hours by letter dated 8.12.1987, which she claims to be full -time casual
employment. By order dated 14.12.1989, the petitioner along with
14 others were granted temporary status as per the Scheme of granting temporary status introduced by the Department of
Telecom. By order dated 18.7.2003, the petitioner was converted
as a full time casual labourer. Subsequently vide order dated
13.05.2005, the petitioner was absorbed as a regular mazdoor with effect from 25.07.2004 after one year's service.
(3.) WE do not find any illegality in the impugned order passed by the respondents. The claim of the petitioner is that she
was entitled to be treated as a full time casual labourer with effect
from 8.12.1987 as work was taken from her for a period of 7 hours
but the same has not been accepted by the Tribunal and we do not
find any reason to take a contrary view. Further the impugned
order of Tribunal is of the year 2011 and this petition was filed in
August, 2014 though the affidavit was shown on 26 th December,
2013 but the writ petition has been filed on 10.07.2014. The petitioner is guilty of latches and the latches has not been
explained. Therefore, this writ petition is devoid of any merits and
is, accordingly, dismissed. There shall be no order as to costs.;
