justice M Dhandapani observed that it is implicitly clear that the courts, in exercise of its power of judicial review, cannot extend the examination to the correctness of the act of the disciplinary authority, but only limit itself to the manner in which the decision has been arrived at by the authorities and whether the same is in accordance with law.

Madurai: The Madras high court has dismissed a plea moved by a driver employed in a government office challenging his dismissal from service as he caused two accidents.
The court was hearing a petition filed by S P Balasubramanian who joined as a jeep driver at the Tamil Nadu Forest Plantation Corporation Limited in 2007. The petitioner was imposed with a punishment of dismissal from service as he caused two accidents in 2007 and 2008, and causing Rs 1,46,073 loss towards repair of the vehicle.

  • Referring to Supreme Court directions, justice M Dhandapani observed that it is implicitly clear that the courts, in exercise of its power of judicial review, cannot extend the examination to the correctness of the act of the disciplinary authority, but only limit itself to the manner in which the decision has been arrived at by the authorities and whether the same is in accordance with law.
    The judge observed that the petitioner was under probation and his service has not been regularised on the date of award of punishment. It is also well settled that during the probationary period, there is no necessity for the employer to initiate any inquiry and the services of the employee can be terminated at any time. However, as a matter of precaution and without violating the principles of natural justice, the authorities have gone ahead with the inquiry and dismissed him from service.

Border talks only after Nepal map issue sorted, hints India
India is unlikely to hold boundary talks with Nepal until Nepal amends the unilateral step by the Oli govt of changing its map to include areas which India claims as its own. The message was relayed to Nepalese foreign minister Pradeep Gyawali this week. India would engage Nepal on development, connectivity, trade etc., but it would not be business as usual, said govt officials.

Government hardens stand, asks unions for law repeal ‘alternative’
Hardening the government’s stance ahead of the next round of talks scheduled for Tuesday, agriculture minister N S Tomar on Sunday called on farm unions to come up with an “alternative” to their demand for the repeal of the new agri laws. Farm representatives, however, said Singh’s comment indicated that the Centre was not willing to talk on their core demands.
GO TO BRIEFS
The judge said that a careful perusal of the entire records relating to the inquiry, it clearly transpires that the disciplinary authority has applied his mind to the report and all the other materials while imposing the punishment and the same was also confirmed by the appellate authority.
The judge observed that the punishment imposed on the petitioner is reasonable considering the nature of delinquency and no sympathy can flow from this court for such an act.
