JAMMU: Justice M.K Hanjura on Wednesday quashed the premature retirement of Noor-ud-Din Wani, I/C SMC (RL), Srinagar, of the Agricultural Production Department with the direction to the State to reinstate the petitioner and grant him all the consequential benefits, within a period of one month from the date the certified copy of this order is served on them by the petitioner.
Justice Hanjura observed that the impugned order bearing No. 1279-GAD of 2016 dated November 21, 2016, cannot stand the test of law and reason because it is not based on any material from which a reasonable opinion could be derived to put forth the plea that the petitioner has outlived his utility as a Government servant or that his conduct was such that his continuance in service would be prejudicial to the public interest. “Merely that a case or cases have been registered against the petitioner by the Vigilance Organisation cannot form the basis of retiring him compulsorily”, the court observed. With these observations, the court quashed the aforesaid order.
