Judgments on Inquiry Report

Wednesday, November 03, 2010
Inquiry Report

Inquiry report — Non supply of inquiry report, held, is inconsequential if the employee does not show as to how he is prejudiced thereby.

Inquiry Report

Inquiry report — The respondent, in the present case, was not furnished with a copy of the inquiry report, and the disciplinary authority straightforward passed the order of removal — The report of the inquiry officer and the detailed order of the Disciplinary Authority became available to the respondent only alongwith the order of removal, and he did not have any opportunity to make his submissions on that report to defend the charges anytime prior to the punishment of removal being decided and imposed — Held, by not giving the inquiry report and the adverse order of the disciplinary authority, the respondent was denied the opportunity to represent before the finding of guilt was arrived at and thereby he was certainly prejudiced.
