S K Tripathi vs Secy. Agriculture Produce on 15 July, 2015

2 min read

The petitioners in this petition are the daily wage
workers working for the Delhi Agricultural Produce
Marketing Committee. Their trade Union is also a petitioner
in this petition. The principal prayer of the petitioners in
the petition is that their services should be regularised and

that they should be appointed on substantive basis since
they have been rendering the services as casual labourers
for nearly six to seven years. The members of the trade
Union were 591 in the year 1986, when this petition was
filed.
Shri Tapas Ray, learned counsel for Delhi Agricultural
Marketing Produce Committee submits that after this
petition was filed the services of 568 daily wage earners
working under the Committee belonging to different
categories have already been regularised against
substantive vacancies and that there are only 132 daily
wage earners whose services have still to be regularised.
He further submits that steps will be taken as early as
possible by the Committee to regularise the services of these
remaining 132 workers also depending on the availability of
the vacancies and that unless and until the cases of these
132 workers are considered for regularisation the
Committee will not submit any outsider in the place of any
of them. He further submits that the services of these 132
persons will not also be terminated until their cases for
regularisation are considered. We feel that the submission
made by Shri Tapas Ray, learned counsel for the Committee
meets the requirements of this petition. We direct the
Committee to comply with the submission made on its behalf
by Shri Ray as early as possible.
