Union of India through its Secretary & Ors. Vs. Maj. Gen. Manomoy Ganguly [ALL SC 2018 August]

Keywords:- Service law

“we conclude that the view of the AFT that the post of DGMS (Army) is to be filled by the officer on the strength of ‘seniority-cum-suitability’, where seniority is a decisive factor and suitability is a secondary factor, is not correct. In the entire discussion resting with the aforesaid view, the Tribunal ignored the fact that it is not only seniority and suitability simpliciter but ‘inter se’ seniority and suitability.

If they have completed 10 years of service they should be regularised unless there is some valid objection to their regularisation like misconduct etc. Continue reading “Narendra Kumar Tiwari & Ors.
