SANT LAL DHAWAN Versus HARMAIL SINGH TOHRA AND ANRS

IN THE HIGH COURT FOR THE STATES OF PUNJAB AND HARYANA AT CHANDIGARH.

Date of Decision: 11th January, 2008...

Sant Lal Dhawan ....Petitioner through Mr. G.P.Vashisht, Advocate
Versus
Harmail Singh Tohra and Ors. ...Respondent through
Mr. P.S.Ranu, Advocate.

CORAM:
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE SURYA KANT.

1. Whether Reporters of local papers may be allowed to see the judgment?

2. To be referred to the Reporters or not?

3. Whether the judgment should be reported in the Digest?

SURYA KANT,J.(ORAL)
This contempt petition has been filed alleging, inter-alia, that the respondents have willfully and deliberately violated the order dated 5th December, 2002 (Annexure P-1) passed by this Court.

The facts may be noticed briefly.

The petitioner retired as a Lecturer (Selection Grade) from G.S.S.D.G.S. Khalsa College, Patiala in October, 1996. He was entitled to be paid gratuity immediately on retirement but the same was paid to him on 15th March, 2003 only.
The petitioner claimed interest on the delayed payment and his claim was accepted by this Court in CWP NO. 16297 of 2001 which was allowed in terms of CWP No. 13798 of 2000, thereby entitling him to claim interest @18% per annum.

The Management of the College felt aggrieved against the grant of interest @18% per annum and approached the Hon'ble Supreme Court. Their Civil Appeal No. 4330 of 2007 has been partly allowed vide order dated 14.9.2007 and the Hon'ble Supreme Court has reduced the rate of interest from 18% to 12%.

In this manner, the petitioner is entitled to be paid interest @12% per annum on the delayed payment of gratuity.

It is contended by learned counsel for the petitioner that arrears of interest have been paid to the petitioner only on 9th January, 2008, therefore, the petitioner ought to have been paid
interest till the said date but the Management has restricted the same up to 15th March, 2003 only. This fact is disputed by learned counsel for the respondents.

Having heard learned counsel for the parties, I am of the considered view that there appears to be no deliberate or willful disobedience of the order dated 5th December, 2002 at the instance
of the respondents. There is, however, a dispute with regard to entitlement of the petitioner qua interest as determined by the Hon'ble Supreme Court. Since the arrears of interest for the period
from October, 1996 to 15th March, 2003 (i.e., the date when gratuity was paid) have been paid to the petitioner only on 9th January, 2008, the Management is undoubtedly liable to pay interest to the petitioner @12% on the arrears of interest also w.e.f. 16th March, 2003 till 31st December, 2007. Let the said amount be calculated and paid to the petitioner within three months from today.
Disposed of.

Rule discharged.

GENERAL SHIV DEV SINGH DIWAN GURBACHAN SINGH KHAL Vs STATE OF PUNJAB and OTHERS Civil Writ Petition 6977 of 2009

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB and HARYANA, CHANDIGARH

Date of Decision: May 08, 2009

General Shiv Dev Singh, Diwan Gurbachan Singh Khalsa College, Patiala ....PETITIONER(S)
VERSUS
State of Punjab and Others .....RESPONDENT(S)

CORAM:
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA

PRESENT: -
Mr. Sameer Sachdeva, Advocate, for the petitioner.

AJAI LAMBA, J (Oral)
Learned counsel contends that the petitioner is entitled to release of grant-in-aid.

The same, however, is not being released and therefore, the petitioner-College is not in a position to pay the salaries.

In this regard, learned counsel has relied on the decision dated 21.3.2009 of this Court in Civil Writ Petition No.4464 of 2009 titled ‘BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr vs. State of Punjab and Others’.

Notice of motion.
Mr. Anil Sharma, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab, on the asking of the Court accepts notice. Copy of the petition has been handed over.

Learned counsel for the respondents has not been able to dispute that the grant-in-aid is required to be released in terms of judgment relied upon on behalf of the petitioner.

In the case of BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr (supra), this Court, while relying on judgment dated 18.12.2007 in C.W.P. No.14340 of 2006, titled `Arya College, Ludhiana Vs. State of Punjab and Others’ and decision dated 24.4.2008 rendered in Civil Writ Petition No.5393 of 2008, titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and Others’, has held:-

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgment rendered in Arya College’s
case (supra) and decision rendered in C.W.P. No.5393 of 2008, decided on 24.4.2008, in case titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and others’, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 3 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner. So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid is
concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representations to the respondents.

In Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara (supra), the following has been held by the Division Bench of this Court:-

Learned counsel for the petitioner has placed reliance on the judgments State of Maharashtra versus
Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, 1995(5) Supreme Court Cases 730, Government of A.P. and Others
versus G.V.K.Girls High School, 2000(8) Supreme Court Cases 370, and State of Haryana and others
versus Babita Yadav and Others, 2004(13) Supreme Court Cases 734, to contend that the paucity of funds or financial contributions cannot be taken a ground to deny the grant-in-aid to Government recognized private colleges while extending such facility to recognized private colleges by the State.

After hearing the learned counsel for the parties, we are of the considered view that the case of the petitioner is squarely covered by the decision in the State of Maharashtra versus Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, Government of A.P. and Others versus G.V.K.Girls High School and State of Haryana and
others versus Babita Yadav and Others (supra). The State Government cannot take up the ground that due to paucity of funds, it is unable to give grant-in-aid to the colleges.

In view of the above, we hold that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid as claimed by the
petitioner within a period of three months, after the clearance of the objections by the petitioner. The
petitioner shall try to clear all the objections raised by the State Government within a period of one month from today. As far as balance 10% of the amount of grant-in-aid case is concerned, the petitioner may submit a separate representation to the respondents. The respondents are also further directed to release the grant-in-aid to the petitioner in future also in time.

In another judgment dated 19.2.2008 rendered by a Division Bench of this Court in Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007 titled `The Managing Committee, Guru Gobind Singh College, Saghera, Barnala, District Sangrur vs. State of Punjab and Another’, similar view has been taken as in the case of Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara (supra).

It has been brought out that State of Punjab filed a Special Leave Petition before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India directed against the judgment rendered in Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007. The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India while dealing with SLP No.15798 of 2008 dismissed the petition on 8.12.2008 by passing the following order:-

Delay condoned.
We find no merit in this petition which is accordingly dismissed. However, two months time is granted to the petitioner State of Punjab to release the amount which is due and payable to the respondent College subject to removal of objections pointed by the High Court in the impugned order.

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgments to which reference has been made hereinabove, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 4 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner. So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid due is concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representations to the respondents.

Petition is allowed in the above terms.
