The prayers in this writ petition are as follows:- "i) Issue rule nisi and call for records; ii) Issue an appropriate writ or direction as to why the order dated 18.12.2018 passed in OA. No. 042/00141/2018 by the Ld. Tribunal shall not be quashed and set aside as the same has been passed without appreciating relevant material and facts; iii) Issue a writ in the nature of certiorari for quashing and setting aside the impugned transfer order dated 12.01.2018 issued by the respondent authority declaring the same as illegal and unconstitutional; iv) Pass such further order(s)/ direction(s) which this Hon'ble Court may deem fit and proper to secure ends of justice.
