PRESS NEWS: Government employee can't seek promotion after refusing it: Supreme Court

The Economic Times-       26.10.2014

NEW DELHI: A government employee, whose promotion is canceled owing to his refusal to accept it, cannot ask for it at a later stage, the Supreme Court has said.

The apex court set aside the order of the Madhya Pradesh High Court which had directed the state government to restore the promotion of one of its employees whose promotion was cancelled after he turned down the offer as he did not want to get transfered to some other place.

"As we find that it is the respondent himself who is responsible for cancellation of the promotion order as he did not join the promoted post, the impugned order of the high court is clearly erroneous and against the law," a bench headed by Justice J Chelameswar said.

When ‘postman of the yore’ came knocking

On a dull Saturday morning, a few residents of Madhavanagar were pleasantly surprised to have their letters delivered by a barefooted postman dressed in ‘kachche panche’ (dhoti) and ‘petha’ (head gear), who also held a spear with jingling bells tied to it. In his left hand, he carried a lantern.

The postman, A.S. Chandrashekhar, also a theatre artiste who goes by the name GPO Chandru, explained to the bemused citizens the significance behind his attire.

“When postal services were introduced in October 1854 in India, this was the uniform of postmen. With no transport facility then, the postmen would cover long distances on foot. In some places there was a relay system, where postmen would deliver letters to their colleagues to reach the final destination,” he said.
With India Post, Karnataka, celebrating Postal Week till October 15, Dinesh Khare, Deputy Chief Postmaster, Bangalore GPO, toldThe Hindu that the objective of the exercise was to showcase the journey that the Postal Department had undertaken thus far. “The postmen used to carry a spear with jingles attached to it. The spear was for protection and the bells were used to inform others of their arrival,” he said.
