Stating that the reason to dispense with a departmental inquiry “smacked of bias against labour class”, the Delhi High Court has set aside an order by the Delhi Vidyut Board dismissing four employees on allegations of corruption.

The Court has thus directed Delhi Vidyut Board to pay the dismissed employees arrears of back-wages calculated from the date of their respective dismissals up to the date of superannuation. It has also directed Delhi Vidyut Board to pay other statutory payments like leave encashment, gratuity, PF, pensions etc . . .
