the appellant was appointed as a Lower division Clerk in the Technical
Education Department. He was transferred on deputation to the Transport
Department. In the impugned order he was repatriated to the Technical Education
Department. Calling that action in question, the appellant field the write
petition No. 2058/89. The learned single Judge of the High Court by order dated
16.7.1990 dismissed the same. On appeal, in Civil Special Appeal No.215/90, it
was confirmed by the Division Bench. by order dated May 13, 1994. Thus this appeal by special leave.
only controversy raised by Shri K. Madhava Reddy, the learned senior counsel
for the appellant is that in view of the letter addressed by the Technical
Education Department that his lien was suspended and he could not be taken back
into the service, the appellant has lost his lien in the parent department.
Therefore, he must be deemed to have permanently absorbed in Transport
Department. We find no force in the contention.
counter-affidavit filed by the state. it is stated that "Since the
petitioner was, admittedly, temporarily transferred to a tenure post, his lien
in parent department cannot be suspended under 1951 Rules. The claim of the
petitioner that his lien exist in Transport department is without any basis and
Wholly misconceived". In view of the above specific stand taken by the
state and it is also consistent with the rules that since the appellant being a
permanent employee in Technical Education Department, during his deputation in
the Transport Department his lien shall always remain in the parent department.
On his repatriation, he goes back to his parent department, namely, Technical
Education Department and he is entitled to his claims in his own right in that
appeal is accordingly dismissed. No costs.
