Decided on February 28,1996

MUNICIPAL CORPORATION OF DELHI Appellant
VERSUS
ROHTAS Respondents

JUDGEMENT

J.K. Mehra, J. (ORAL) - (1.)IN the present case the Management of MCD is challenging the decision of the Labour Court rendered under Section 33-C(2) of the INdustrial Disputes Act whereby the Labour Court had taken upon itself in an application under Section 33-C(2) the determination of the dispute relating to conditions of service between the employer and employee and the entitlement of the workman on the basis of law laid down by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in the cases of Dhirender Chamoli and Surender Singh. The determination of right is not based on the contract of employment or any prior adjudication and is in the nature of determination which could be undertaken only as a reference of the dispute under the INdustrial Disputes Act. Such prior determination or written contract of employment alone give rise to an existing right in favour of the workman and only the benefits flowing therefrom can be computed under Section 33-C(2) of the INdustrial Disputes Act. This question has since been settled by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in "MCD Vs. Ganesh Razak & Anr." and other connected civil appeals reported as JT 1994 (7) SC 476. Mr. Aggarwal concedes that the case of the present respondent is covered by the said judgment of the Hon'ble Supreme Court. Both counsel have agreed that the present case is covered by the said judgment and that in the light thereof the impugned order cannot be sustained. IN the circumstances the petition is accepted and the Rule is made absolute and the impugned order of the Labour Court is set aside.
(2.)NO order as to costs.
