"Finally the Government Servant's Conduct Rules do not have the force of the law of the land. Once this was contested by Mr. Sudhir Kumar who claimed that the Constitution of India has provisions for promulgating Conduct Rules. But such provisions are temporary in nature like, say, an ordinance. "
Sorry, it is not me who claims that these rules are statutory, these are sttutory ane enforceble in court and will remain so even if I change my views. Please read first line of the rules and also provision to Article 309 of the consitution.
Sorr these rules are not really temporary in nature like, say, an ordinance in fact these rules will prevail till replaced by legislation. These rules are not at par with ordinance because ordinate has a life of 6 mopnths. There is no provision for lapse of these rules.
