For redressal of the grievance of the applicant, a committee was constituted as early as 27 September 2011 and as such, this has been got adjourned on several occasions. Today, the counsel for the respondents seeks three months more time as the Committee is to be reconstituted in view of the retirement of one of the members. It is not exactly known to the Tribunal as to the stage up to which the committee has reached. As sufficient time has already expired, it is appropriate that two months and no more time is granted for the Committee to arrive at a decision and communicate the same to the applicant. Reply to the OA shall also be filed immediately after arriving at a decision, so that this can be considered accordingly.
In view of the above, the following directions are issued.
(a) The Committee shall decide the issue within two months from today.
(b) Reply shall be filed within a week thereafter on the basis of the decision of the committee.
List this case for further consideration on 12.03.2013.
A copy of this order be made available to the counsel for the parties.
