O R D E R (Oral)
Per: Smt. Leena Mehandale, Member (A)
Shri Alok, learned counsel, volunteers to accept notice on behalf of the respondents. He fairly submits that this is as per Section 20 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985, that the respondents should be given a proper chance to consider the representation preferred by the applicant before the OA is entertained by this Tribunal. In case the applicant is still aggrieved by the final outcome of his representation, he would be at liberty to approach the Tribunal as per
law. Accordingly, a direction may be given to respondents to consider the representation.
2. Though this case is posted today for admission, with the consent of both sides, the case is taken up for disposal under Section 20 of the AT Act, at the admission stage itself. Heard the learned counsels for both the parties. The pleadings along with the documents annexed to the O.A. have been perused.
3. After hearing the learned counsel for the parties, I am of the considered opinion that the ends of justice would be met with, if a suitable direction is given to the Competent Authority of the respondents to consider and decide the said representation dated 21.12.2011 at Annexure A-7 within a period of three months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order and to try to redress the grievances of the applicant by passing an appropriate order as per law. Ordered accordingly. Liberty is granted to the applicant to approach the Tribunal if he is still aggrieved by such order. The OA stands disposed of at the admission stage itself. No costs.
