Ad hoc service can't be counted for
seniority: HC
Chandigarh,Sept 30 ,2013 -Ad hoc
service put in by a government
employee cannot be clubbed with
regular service for the purpose of
seniority. However, it may be counted
for the purpose of pensionary benefits.
This judgment has come from the
Punjab and Haryana high court, clearing
the confusion of a large number of
government employees who had joined
service on an ad hoc basis and were
later regularised.
The court headed by justice Paramjeet
Singh gave the judgment in a case in
which the erstwhile Punjab State
Electricity Board had moved the high
court in a civil revision petition , seeking
the setting aside of an order passed by
the executing court. The latter had
directed the board to count the ad hoc
service rendered by upper-division clerk
Surinder Kumar for the purpose of
seniority, which now the high court has
found to be perverse and erroneous.
Surinder Kumar was appointed by the
board at its executive engineer's office
in Ahmedgarh (Sangrur district ) on an
ad hoc basis on October 12, 1976. His
services were regularised on November
15, 1977. The board, vide its order
dated June 23, 2005, ordered
regularisation of Kumar's ad hoc
service from October 12, 1976, to
November 15, 1977, as well. But this
order was withdrawn by the board on
January 24, 2006.
Surinder Kumar had challenged the
board's order in the court of law on the
ground that once the board had
regularised his service, it could not be
withdrawn later and his ad hoc service
should be counted towards seniority.
Considering his arguments, the
executing court had passed the order in
Kumar's favour.
However, the appellate court of
additional civil judge (senior division),
Patiala, later ordered the board to
consider the ad hoc service rendered by
Kumar according to rules within three
The board, however, approached the
high court for clarification on the issue.
The board's counsel also made it clear
that there were clear-cut judgments of
the apex court on the issue that ad hoc
service cannot be counted for seniority
and one such judgment was passed in
the case "State of Haryana and others
vs Vijay Singh and others".
