The Peer Team invites the attention of concerned authorities to the following areas of concern for further growth and consolidation of academic activities of the college:

The college can start post-graduate courses in some disciplines as per student demands, in addition to the existing PG courses in Hindi and English.

The State Government may enable the college to fill the vacant positions with regular teachers, at least in some disciplines on priority.

The college can initiate certain Diploma/Certificate Courses in Communicative English, Music (Vocal & Instrumental), and Computer Awareness as programme options for the students, so that they pass out with value-added skills.

Student facilities such as Career Guidance Cell and Placement Cell have to be further strengthened.

The college can create a Research Promotion Cell and motivate the teachers to undertake Research Projects, Teacher Fellowships etc. from UGC and other apex agencies. The teaching staff has to take further interest in Organizing and attending academic seminars and conferences. They can utilize the facilities such as seminar/conference grants and Participation of Teachers in Academic Conferences (PTAC) from UGC and similar bodies.

The college is suggested to create a Quality Enhancement Cell to continuously monitor and catalyze the improvement of academic activities.

The teachers can undertake Self-evaluation and / or Student Feedback to further improve their quality of teaching. Shift to more interactive teaching by employing available Audio-Visual facilities, case studies, simulations and group discussions etc.

Facilities for Public Campus Telephone and more Internet access to the students need to be provided.

The college can create Departmental Libraries particularly in the PG Departments.

A Certificate Course on Computers for non-science students.

The college library has to procure more research journals. It can be further strengthened with the assistance of INFLIBNET.

Linkages with the local Scientific Instruments Industry are to be strengthened.

The college is suggested to establish Mathematics, Commerce and Language laboratories.

Date of Decision : May 12, 2009.

Sanatan Dharma College (Lahore) Ambala Cantt through its Principal. ....... Petitioner .
Raj Kumar s/o Shri Gainda Ram, r/o Shahapur, District Ambala, and another....... Respondents.


Mr. Vikrant Sharma, Advocate, for the petitioner.
Mr. J.S. Cooner, Advocate, for the respondent No. 1.

In the present writ petition, the challenge is to the award dated 20.11.2008 (Annexure-P-4), vide which the reference has been answered in favour of the workman, holding him entitled to reinstatement in service alongwith all the consequential service benefits including continuity of service and full back wages.

Counsel for the petitioner contends that the appointment of the workman was as Cycle Stand Attendant on part time basis. He continued to work as such but thereafter his services were terminated on 10.04.2005 as per workman and as per Management on 31.03.2005. The Labour Court has come to a conclusion that the workman had completed more than 240 days in service and that factual position cannot be disputed. However, he contends that since it was an appointment on part time contract basis, therefore, provisions of Section 25-F of the Industrial Disputes Act were not required toC.W.P. No. 5205 of 2009.

be complied with. He further contends that the post on which the workman has been ordered to be reinstated is a public post which could only be filled up after complying with the provisions as contained under the statutory rules governing the service, and further after giving an advertisement and thereafter selection process. Since the appointment of the workman was merely on an application submitted by him without calling for any further application or consideration or selection process, the appointment was de
hors the statutory rules governing the service and, thereafter, he was not entitled to reinstatement as he was not holding any post.

On the other hand, counsel for the respondent-workman contends that the factual position with regard to the workman completed more than 240 days in the 12 preceding calendar months from the date of his
termination, is not disputed. Although, the workman was appointed on public post on contract basis, if his services were to be terminated, the requirement of fulfilling the provisions as contained under Section 25-F of the Industrial Disputes Act was mandated under the Industrial Law. That having not been complied with, the findings as recorded by the Labour Court, cannot be faulted with.

Counsel for the respondent further submits that the workman was appointed as a full time Chowkidar and, therefore, the contention of the Management that he was a part time worker and that at the Cycle Stand, is not sustainable. He further contends that the award passed by the Labour Court is fully justified and does not call for interference by this Court.

I have heard counsel for the parties and have gone through the records of the case.

There is no dispute with regard to the fact that the appointment of the workman was de hors the statutory rules as his appointment was not in consonance with the requirement of law for making regular appointment. It is also not the case of the workman that the appointment of the workman was made as per rules governing the service. Whether the workman was a part timer or full timer that really would not determine his right to hold the post. The question is whether the appointment of the workman was as per
the statutory rules governing the service. Thus, if the appointment of the workman was not in consonance with the provisions of the statute governing the service, the workman would not be entitled to hold the post.

Hon'ble the Supreme Court in the cases of Ghaziabad Development Authority and another Versus Ashok Kumar and another, 2008(4) S.C.C. 261, Mahboob Deepak Versus Nagar Panchayat, Gajraula, (2008) 1 S.C.C. 575, M.P. Administration Versus Tribhuwan, (2007) 9 S.C.C. 748, and State of M.P. and others Versus Lalit Kumar Verma, (2007) 1 S.C.C. 575, has held that the termination although in violation of
the provisions as contained under the Industrial Disputes Act does not entitle the workman to reinstatement in case the appointment of the said workman is not in consonance with the statutory rules governing the service.

That being the position, the impugned award dated 20.11.2008 (Annexure-P-4), passed by the Industrial Tribunal-cum-Labour Court, Ambala, ordering reinstatement of the workman, is not sustainable.

However, in the light of the fact that the service of the workman was terminated not in consonance with the Industrial Disputes Act, the workman would be entitled to compensation to settle equities between the parties as per the judgment of Hon'ble the Supreme Court in the case of Telecom District Manager and others Versus Kesheb Deb, 2008 (4) S.C.T. 33, and a Division Bench of this Court in the case of State of Haryana Versus Ishwar Singh and another, 2008(3) S.C.T. 788. The workman had worked with
the petitioner-management from 01.07.2001 to 10.04.2005, therefore, the workman is held entitled to compensation of Rs. 35,000/-.
