Sir i am sudesh pachauri working in a central govt department since 2013. I filed an O.A. In cat jabalpur in September 2019 regarding expunging the adverse remarks from my apar and granting me promotion retrospectively by upgrading my apar. I have been deprived of promotion in last 3 DPCs while being considered for the same in each of them.
When i call my advocate for the status he hardly replies and not meet when i go to his office he doesn't allow to meet and his assistant tells check the status on website. I am getting very depressed and frustrated as one and half years have been passed and i am not getting anything out of it...even my colleagues and junior start making fun of me in the office..my family life also started getting disturbed because of all these... Kindly suggest me what can i do so that the said trial in the CAT could be done faster. Thanks
If you are not satisfied with the performance of your lawyer change him/ her immediately.
You will appreciate there is stalemate in functioning of judicial system all over the world and India including CAT due to pandemic COVID-19. Accordingly there is minimum proceedings in your case as well. You will have to wait till normalcy after COVID-19.
No comments can be passed on the basis of limited facts posted by you, hence it is necessary to peruse case file.
Thanks all the respected sirs for your precious time....sir as per conversation with my lawyer's assistant notice from registrar has been sent in January 2020. But the respondents reply is awaited. Thanks
CAT(Procedure) Rules require that the respondent should file their reply within one month of the service of the Notice. As the delay is inordinate, you may instruct your advocate to file an IA to decide the OA on merits without any longer waiting for the reply to be filed. It would be advantageous if directions are got issued for production of the concerned file.
"sir as per conversation with my lawyer's assistant notice from registrar has been sent in January 2020". This information does not appear to be correct. It is the prevailing practice that, before filing, advance copy of applications/petitions are served on the Government Counsel.
