Gopal Rao Ekbote, J. -
(1.) This appeal is from the judgment of our learned brother
Parthasarathi, J. given in W.P.No. 449 of
1971 on 9th November, 1971 whereby the
learned Judge allowed the writ petition
and quashed the impugned order by
directing the issue of a writ of certiorari.
The facts lie in a narrow compass and are
not at all in dispute.
(2.) The appellant before us was the
Village Munsif of Vontimitta Village in
Cuddapah District. He was removed
from service by the Sub-Collector on
10th August, 1963, on the ground that he
was slack in the collection of land revenue
and the loans advanced by the Government to the ryots. He preferred an appeal
to the Collector, but that appeal was dismissed. He carried the matter in second
appeal to the Board of Revenue. The
Board of Revenue also dismissed the
appeal on 20th May, 1964. A further
revision to the Government by him also
met with the same fact on 3rd June, 1965.
(3.) While the matter rested there, on an
application from the appellant, the
Government revised its earlier order and
set aside the orders of the lower authorities. The Government directed that the
punishment of removal from service be
modified to one of suspension for the
period during which he was out of office.
The appellant was directed to be reinstated on duty forthwith. This order was
passed in G.O. Ms. No. 1467 dated 30th
