34

Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur of J&K High Court while dismissing a petition challenging the order dated July 10, 2018, whereby petitioner stand relieved from the place where she was attached and has been asked to report to original place of posting at Govt. Middle School, Bonakoot, observed that employee does not have an indefeasible right to remain attached at a particular place for perpetuity.

Petitioner Shaheena Jabeen challenged the order dated 10th July, 2018, whereby she stood relieved from the place where she was attached and was asked to report to original place of posting at Govt. Middle School, Bonakoot.

The order impugned was issued in compliance to the circular No.22-GAD of 2018 dated 06.07.2018 whereby all employees who stood attached were directed to be repatriated to the parent departments/ organizations with immediate effect.

Clause (iii) of the said circular, however, envisages that where continuation of an employee on attachment is warranted under exceptional circumstances, the department concerned shall process that case for approval of the concerned Advisor for extension in his period of attachment.
