CAT judgement on transfer before retirement

Govt employees near retirement should not be disturbed: CAT,NEWDELHI 110 001 New Delhi, Sep 5 (PTI) The Central Administrative Tribunal has held that government employees on the verge of superannuation should not be disturbed merely because they have stayed for a considerably long period at a particular place. The apex tribunal said that such a benefit should be extended to superannuating employees to retire peacefully at a particular place after years of dedicated service. "Merely because the applicants have a long stay and the transfer order could not be implemented so far would not by itself constitute sufficient reason. "There is an objective based on considerations of welfare behind such provision in the transfer policy as it would enable a person about to retire after a long and devoted service to make arrangements for settling down thereafter with his family, acquire a house if not already done," Member N D Dayal said.
