assessment need based requirement was done, nor sanction from head office
before granting the advances was sought, nor post-facto confirmation was
obtained and no security documents were obtained in most of the cases.

service on March 19, 1986 and the appeal filed against the said order was
also dismissed. Besides filing the appeal before the appellate authority

petition the appeal was also dismissed the writ was accordingly amended.
During the pendency of the writ petition P.K.Mudgil passed away thus his
legal heirs were substituted. The writ petition was dismissed by the learned
Single Judge vide the impugned order dated August 10, 2009 hence the
present appeal.
