Dear Sir’s I was working at a senior position in a Pvt Bank and my services were terminated in June 2018 to which I filed an appeal to my MD in Aug 2018. Having kept the appeal pending and informing me via HR vide various communications that appeal is under consideration. In one of the last communication in Nov end wherein they informed me that appellate authority has gone thru the appeal and the decision is reserved and shall be informed to by a particular date. Finally I got a reply on 4th Dec that appeal in not maintainable for want of jurisdiction of the appellate authority and hence being returned. Kindly advise what really it means and how to proceed further legally. Thanks

Dear Sir, It appears your appeal is dismissed for want of jurisdiction so you may try for filing appeal before the authority having jurisdiction so that you can get proper adjudication of the matter.

Sir's My question is that once an appeal has been filed to the highest authority i.e MD which as per the Bank service regulations is the appellate authority or his nominee . Was it not the responsibility of the MD's team to put across the proper authority having jurisdiction in case he is not ? The return of appeal means that in the whole organisation there is no appellate authority having jurisdiction on termination matters ? How is that possible ? Is it not denial of natural justice ?

Sir , Many Thanks for your reply. At which place can move court . I am resident of NOIDA and my workplace was Meerut . Termination orders were served to me at my address in Noida. The Head Office of the organisation is in Mumbai and my Regional Office is also in Noida though my immediate superior sits in Lucknow. My appointment happened in Delhi and I would prefer Delhi as well.
