Decision Regarding Appointment on Regular Basis under Rule 17-A Instead of Contract Basis
The petitioners were appointed under the benefit of Rule 17-A of Punjab Civil Servants (Appointment & Conditions of Service) Rules, 1974 on contract basis instead of regular basis. This Court has already held in numerous cases that such appointment shall be made on regular basis. In this view of the matter, respondent No. 3 present in Court, undertakes that the petitioner’s services will be regularized within five days commencing henceforth.
In view of the above undertaking made by respondent No.3, learned counsel for the petitioners feels satisfied and does not press this petition. This petition stands disposed of being fructified.
