Timeframe to appeal against single bench judgement
(Querist) 17 November 2017
This query is : Resolved
Hi sir, My name is Raj Kumar. I won the case (7015/16) in Honourable high court of Delhi on 30 of October. In this case the judge reserved the judgement on 23 May 2017 and delivered it on 30 October 2017.
Judgement came in my favour, and the Judgement directed my employer to issue the offer of appointment within four weeks. Although four weeks yet to completed, but when I asked the HR department of my employer about the further process, they said that have no idea about this. Is it possible? They must have received the judgement copy. Also I have intimated them by email and also sent them hard copies of the judgment. In case they go before divisional bench , what is the timeframe to appeal before divisional bench?
