Gopal Rao Ekbote, J. -
(1.) The principal
question which has to be answered in
this appeal is whether a public servant
against whom disciplinary proceedings
are initiated is entitled as of right to be
legally represented before the Tribunal.
(2.) The essential facts are that M.
Narasinga Rao, who originally instituted
the suit but died during its pendency,
had entered service as pay clerk on 1st
June, 1951. He had to make a securily
deposit of Rs. 3,700. After about two
years of his service it was discovered that
Rs. 10,000 were missing from his cash
box. The Railway Police, Vijayanagaram took up the investigation. In
the meanwhile M. Narasinga Rao Was
kept under suspension with effect from
I4th July, 1953. The Railway authorities made enquiries after following the
required procedure. As a result M.
Narasinga Rao was dismissed from service
in February, 1958. His security dfposit
also was forfeited.
(3.) M. Narasinga Rao preferred appeal
to the Railway Administration. His
appeal, however, Was dismissed.;
