apparently applied to the National Projects Construction Company (NPCC)
for the post of Sectional Officer (C), in February, 1975. By letter dated

his existing public or Government employer- in case he was a public servant.
He attended the interview and was selected for the post. He sought two

facilitating the petitioner to join NPCC. On 27.04.1975, he joined NPCC and
started working in that organization.
