R N Rattan vs Oriental Bank Of Commerce & Anr on 19 October, 2015

1. During arguments in the appeal, learned counsel for the appellant
handed over a written note comprising four pages bearing date October 13,
2015 and said that arguments would be restricted to the said written note,
which forms the basis of the present decision.
2. In harmony with the said written note learned counsel for the
appellant argued four points in support of the appeal. The first point urged
was that relevant documents demanded on February 09, 1998 and thereafter
on April 22, 1998 and May 04, 1998 were not supplied and as a result
prejudice has been caused to the appellant. The second point urged was that
the Appellate Authority disposed of the appeal filed by the appellant against
the order passed by the Disciplinary Authority dismissing appellant from

service without any application of mind evidenced by the cryptic order
penned in the file by the Appellate Authority which reads: “concur with the
order of Disciplinary Authority and do not wish to interfere. The appeal is
hereby disposed”. The third contention urged was that the findings of the
Inquiry Officer on the charges were perverse. The last contention urged was
that the punishment was disproportionate because the bank did not suffer
any loss nor did the allegations concerning the charge question the integrity
of the appellant.
