Media coverage of Guru Gobind Singh Group (Sikh Educational Society), Chandigarh Chandigarh, Chandigarh
History of the Sikh Educational SocietySES was formed in the Pre-Independence days in Lahore when the three main communities of Punjab were engaged in the competitive efforts to modernize their educational, cultural and social environment; and to promote their respective religeo - socio - economic interests. The Sikh leaders of the day felt it necessary to establish a Sikh College at Lahore. The ideological inputs of eminent educationists like Principal Niranjan singh and Principal Bawa Harkishan Singh fructified with the socio-political lead given by eminent Sikh leaders like Master Tara Singh, Giani Kartar Singh, S. Mangal Singh and others. The prominent leaders of the Sikhs whole-heartedly supported the new venture of organizing a Sikh Educational Society which established the Sikh National College at Lahore. Philanthropists like S.B. Inder Singh, father of S.Baldev Singh, ex-Defense Minister of India made big contributions and Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala also pitched in by making a handsome endowment to convert the idea into reality.
Partition of the Country played havoc with this noble venture. But the progressive leaders of the Community did not lose heart. They started the Sikh National College at Qadian (Distt. Gurdaspur) in the area vacated by the Ahmedias in 1948. This College is still being run by the Society inspite of heavy odds.
It was followed by another laudable effort through the initiative of S. Harguranad Singh, M.L.A. by opening the Sikh National College, Banga to cater to the educational needs of rural Doaba, in 1953, at a site provided by the Committee looking after the historic shrine, sacred to the memory of Sri Guru Hargovind Sahib.
These ventures were climaxed by the efforts of S. Kapur Singh, Ex-Speaker of Punjab Vidhan Sabha and others. They persuaded the Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee, Amritsar who had earlier brought a big chunk of land in Sector 26, Chandigarh to meet the educational needs of the Community. The SGPC consented to lease the land to the Sikh Educational Society for establishing a modern educational complex in this area. Sri Guru Gobind Singh College was the first to be set up here in 1966, followed by the Guru Gobind Singh College for Women in 1973, and Guru Gobind Singh College of Pharmacy in 1982.
Guru Gobind Singh Collegiate Public School was set up in the year 1992 after the Three Year Degree course pattern was adopted by the University and an English Medium School was deemed to be necessary for quality education up to the Secondary level. Because of old age, S. Kapur Singh handed over the responsibility of managing the S.E.S Institutions and the Sikh educational Society to S. Ajit Singh Sarhadi, in 1987 after a long and fruitful innings lasting 26 years. S. Ajit Singh Sarhadi was a revered Sikh, an Advocate, a Parliamentarian, a scholar and a committed Panthic leader. He served the Society as its leader till the year 1994. During his stewardship, the academic and administrative control of the S.E.S was further strengthened and the Institutions were put on the path of excellence. He also thought it proper to hand over the responsibility of this august Body to Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra, M.P. the then President of S.G.P.C., in the year 1994.
During the tenure of Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra, the S.E.S Institutions, not only consolidated their position financially but also several buildings like Boys Hostel, Girls Hostel, Seminar and Multi-purpose Halls and the Khalsa Birth Tercentenary Arts Block added glory to the Educational complex of the S.E.S. Colleges in Sector 26, Chandigarh. Similarly, Sikh National College Qadian and Sikh National College Banga also continued to grow.
We can say with a sense of pride that our Institutions are in the frontline of Private affiliated Colleges of Panjab. It may not be out of place to mention that the General Body of the Sikh Educational Society is represented by prominent former Vice-Chancellors, Educationists, Retired Judges, senior Army and Civil Officers, political and Social Leaders, Eminent Industrialists, Doctors, Engineers and other prominent Sikhs from different walks of life.
We propose to provide information about the educational, cultural, sporting and other activities and achievements of the Six Educational Institutions run under the aegis of SES.

K.S. GAREWAL, J.
Harcharan Singh Khanna joined as Lecturer in History in Sikh National College, Banga in 1965. This college is run by Sikh Educational Society, Chandigarh. In 1997 the petitioner was transferred to Sri Guru Gobind Singh College, Chandigarh also under the same Society. The
petitioner and retired on September 30, 1997 on attaining the age of 60 years.
The petitioner received Rs. 59,602/- on account of 75% gratuity on January 15, 1998. The College only paid 75% of the gratuity and withheld the rest, stating that this would be released after implementation of pension/gratuity scheme by the government. The petitioner's gratuity had
been computed on the basis of unrevised pay scale whereas the petitioner's pay was revised from January 1, 1996 and fixed at Rs. 15760/- in the scale of Rs. 12000-420-18300. This is apparent from the certificate issued by the College Principal dated September 9, 2003 (Annexure P/4), which reads as under:-
Certified that Sh. H.S. Khanna has worked in this College as Lecturer in History. He joined his duties in this college from 17.8.1967 and retired from service w.e.f. 30.9.1997 after attaining the age of superannuation. He was drawing a basic pay of Rs. 5250/- PM in the unrevised pay scale of Rs. 3700- 5700 which was revised from 1.1.1996 and his basic pay was fixed at Rs. 15760/- in the revised pay scale of Rs. 12000-420- 18300 at the time of his retirement.
The petitoiner sought re-calculation of his gratuity claiming
dearness allowance and relied upon the instructions of the university dated February 28, 1997 (Annexure P/5) in respect of raising of maximum limit of gratuity to Rs. 2.50 lacs with effect from April 1, 1995.
Finally in response to many representations of the petitioner, the matter was considered by the Sikh Educational Society, Chandigarh, on October 9, 2003 (Annexure P/12). It was recorded in this order that the revised pay of the petitoiner on the date of his retirement was Rs. 15760/- in the revised scale of Rs. 12000-18300. It was also noted that in terms of Regulation 7 of Chapter VIII (E) of the Panjab University Calendar Volume-I “... gratuity of sum equivalent to one fourth of his ** 'Pay' law
drawn for each completed six monthly period of qualifying service subject to 16-1/2 (sixteen and half) times the ** 'Pay' provided that in no case gratuity shall exceed the amount as fixed by the Punjab Government from time to time for its employees....” While concluding, it was noted that the Chandigarh Administration had not provided grant of gratuity or pension to the employees of the non-government affiliated colleges. However, as a gesture of goodwill, the Sikh Educational Society decided regarding
payment of gratuity to the retirees in principle. The age of retirement for the purpose of gratuity will be 58 years. The petitioner's representation was thus rejected.
In the joint written statement filed by the Sikh Educational
Society and Siri Guru Gobind Singh College, it was pleaded that the petition was not maintainable, as the respondent was a Society not amenable to writ jurisdiction.
It was also pleaded that the petitioner was trying to enforce a contract of personal service against a private body through the present petition filed by him. It was reiterated that there was no statutory rules for payment of gratuity to a retiree but the governing body has decided in principle to pay gratuity to its retirees and the age for payment of gratuity has been fixed as 58 years. This was as per the the Panjab University Calendar which provided that the amount of gratuity should not exceed the amount fixed by the Punjab Government. The employees of the Punjab Government retire at the age of 58 years, therefore, the same age of retirement has been fixed for the purpose of payment of gratuity.
Gratuity is something payable to an employee on the
termination of his employment, which may be on superannuation, on retirement or resignation, on death (in which case gratuity would be paid to the heirs of the deceased employee) or on disablement due to accident or
disease. Furthermore, gratuity is calculated as a sum payable based on the last drawn salary. Therefore, it follows that the last drawn salary on the date of superannuation has to be considered. You cannot have a situation where you retire an employee on superannuation on attaining the age of 60 years but pay gratuity to him in accordance with what he was drawing when he completed 58 years. This is what the respondents have sought to contend, age of retirement for the purpose of gratuity would be 58 years.
The petitioner retired on September 30, 1997 on attaining the age of 60 years. He must receive gratuity on his last drawn pay and not by considering his age of retirement to be 58 years.
For the aforestated reasons, this petition is allowed, Annexures P/12 and P/13 are hereby quashed and it is directed that the respondents would make payment of gratuity to the petitioner on the basis of the revised pay applicable from January 1, 1996 and on the basis of his last drawn revised pay. The balance amount of Rs. 1,65,048/- (subject to computation) shall be paid to the petitioner within two months from today at the rate of 7.5% interest (from the date it is due till the date of payment).
The petitioner shall also be entitled to costs of Rs. 7500/-.
