MP HC imposes fine on petitioner for rushing to HC


Jabalpur Mar 16 (ILNS) The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on the petitioner for not giving time to the authority concerned to decide his representation and immediately rushing to the High Court.

The matter pertains to a petition filed by one Rajeshwar Mehto, seeking direction to the respondents to delete the words ‘contingency paid employee’ from his service record because his services have already been regularised.

Advocate for the petitioner, Jitendra Arya submitted that his client filed a representation in this regard before the authority concerned and prays that the same may be decided at the earliest.

Justice Nandita Dubey of Jabalpur bench observed that the petitioner has filed representation to the concerned authority on March 1, 2021 and thereafter, the petition was drafted and notarized on March 4, 2021, and submitted before the High Court and received by the office on March 9, 2021.

The court held, “The petitioner has not thought fit to give time to the authority concerned to decide his representation and has immediately rushed to this court. The court directed the petitioner to deposit a cost of Rs 2,000 for wasting the time of the court within a period of one week from the day of passing the order. The amount should be paid in the account of the MP High Court Bar Association,” ordered the court.

While disposing of the petition, the Judge directed the competent authority to decide the pending representation of the petitioner within eight weeks, after a certified copy of this order is received by them. ILNS/SNG/JR
