         Dated this the 17th day of December, 2010

                         J U D G M E N T

The petitioner is working as Re-touching Artist Grade-I

in the Government Press, Mannanthala. According to the

petitioner, he is entitled to be promoted as Supervisor

(Plate Making/Reproduction), as per the Draft Special Rules

framed, which is pending finalisation. The petitioner

therefore submits that, in view of Exts.P6 & P7 judgments,

the respondents are bound to make promotions in

accordance with the Draft Special Rules, which is not being

done. The petitioner submits that, the petitioner is now put

in charge of the post of Supervisor (Plate

Making/Reproduction) and he is to retire from service on

31.03.2011. The petitioner therefore seeks the following

reliefs:

i) Declare that the petitioner is entitled to get promotion to
the post of Supervisor (Plate Making) in the Government
Press, Mannanthala which arose on 29.06.2010 in
accordance with Ext.P5 Draft Special Rules;

ii) Issue a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate writ,
direction or order directing the respondents to forthwith

W.P.(C)No. 37455 of 2010
-2-

promote the petitioner to the post of Supervisor (Plate
Making) in the Government Press, Mannanthala;

iii) Issue a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate writ,
direction or order directing the Respondents to fill up the
vacancy of Supervisor (Plate Making) which arose on
29.06.2010 in accordance with Ext.P5 Draft Special
Rules as directed by this Hon’ble Court in Exhibits P-6
and P-7 judgments.

iv) Issue a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate writ,
direction directing the respondents to consider Exhibit
P-8 representation in the light of Exhibit P-6 judgment
and promote him to the post of Supervisor (Plate
Making) in the Government Press, Mannanthala, which
arose on 29.06.2010;

I have heard the learned Government Pleader also. In

the facts and circumstances of the case, I am of opinion

that, it is only appropriate that the 2nd respondent considers

the claim of the petitioner for promotion in the light of

Exts.P6 & P7 judgments. This shall be done as

expeditiously as possible, at any rate within two months

from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment, after

affording an opportunity of being heard to the petitioner.

S. SIRI JAGAN
JUDGE
