HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE MARKANDEY KATJU HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AFTAB ALAM For Appellant(s) Ms. A.Subhashini,Adv. Ms. A.Subhashini For Respondent(s) Mr. Subramonium Prasad,Adv. Mr. B.D. Sharma Mr. L.N. Gupta Mrs Lalita Kaushik UPON hearing counsel the Court made the following ORDER (Parveen Kr. Chawla) (Indu Satija) Court Master Court Master REPORTABLE IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION CIVIL APPEAL NO.7258 OF 2002 Delhi Transport Corporation ..Appellant versus Mool Chand ..Respondent ORDER This Appeal has been filed against the impugned judgment of the High Court dated 06th November, 2001. It appears that there was a Voluntary Retirement Scheme (for short 'VRS') in the Delhi Transport Corporation, hereinafter referred to as the 'Corporation', in 1993 which contained a provision for pension. The respondent herein did not apply under that VRS Scheme.

Subsequently, the Corporation framed a new Scheme dated 13.12.1995 in which it was specifically stated that those employees who opt for VRS under the new Scheme will not get pension. Respondent, admittedly, applied under this scheme.

Since, there was a specific provision in the VRS Scheme dated 13.12.1995, we fail to see how the High Court has held that the respondent will get pension in addition to VRS benefits.

In view of above, we find that the impugned judgment of the High Court is erroneous and it is hereby set aside. The Appeal is allowed accordingly. No Order as to costs.

Civil Appeal Nos.2301/2007 and 2302/2007 Learned counsel appearing for the appellant in these appeals has stated that in view of the earlier order of this Court dated 12th March, 2007 passed in Special Leave Petition(C)No.4135 of 2007, these appeals may be dismissed. We order accordingly.
