Chandigarh, January 24
In a significant judgement, the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has declared the act of relieving a part-time lecturer from Government Home Science College by the UT Administration as illegal. Ordering her immediate reinstatement, the judgement stated that the lecturer would be deemed to be in service with immediate effect and would be entitled to all benefits of pay and allowances on the terms she was working up to the date of her removal with all arrears.

The complainant, Ms Seema Jaitly, a part-time lecturer in Government Home Science college, had been relieved from her services by the Administration last year. The Administration’s had selected, Dr Simmi Arora, through the UPSC for a regular post in her place.

Ms Seema Jaitly filed a complaint against the Administration Education Secretary, UT, Principal, Government Home Science College, Chandigarh, and Dr Simmi Arora, lecturer, alleging that she had been removed illegally since there was no vacancy against which regular selection could be made in the Government Home Science College and that the regular appointment was made for the Arts and Science College, Chandigarh.

The Administration in its reply to these allegations had questioned the validity of Ms Jaitly moving the court challenging the decision of the Administration.

A Division Bench comprising Judges, Mr Jasbir S. Dhaliwal, and Mr J.L. Negi, observed, “She (an applicant) has every right to come to the tribunal with the plea that the Administration has flouted the directions given in her favour. Even otherwise, when an eligible person comes to the tribunal challenging selection and appointment of someone on the ground that he or she is eligible for such post, and that selection has been wrongly made, the tribunal will have jurisdiction and such applicant shall have locus standi to raise such an issue”. The Tribunal also observed that the objections raised by the administrative official were found to be baseless.

The tribunal also said, “Administration may post, Dr Simmi Arora, in the cadre of Government Arts and Science College, against existing vacancy for which we have held, her to have been selected according to the rules, applicable to such post.”
