I am working in a government department in India (Delhi). Here is the gist of my case.
An officer submitted a complaint against me for being discourteous. Acting on his complaint, I was issued a memorandum by the administration to explain my position within five days from the receipt of the memorandum. I submitted the reply in time. Subsequently, administration asked the complainant to file a rejoinder in response to my reply. Now, that complainant officer is brooding over the case. It is more than six months ago. The administration is not taking any action against him for non-submission of the rejoinder. The complaint is still on.
My Question: What is the time limit for submitting a rejoinder in such cases? What could be the course of action if that time limit is over?
Thanks in advance to everybody whosoever happens to be my saviour.
