The greatest distance in the world is just 14 inches. From the mind to the heart. It is most difficult to manage the balance between them.

Uploading of a book titled “Disciplinary Proceedings – Why Administrative Tribunals interfere”

Yashwantrao Chavan Academy of Development Administration (YASHADA) had published the book titled “Disciplinary Proceedings – Why Administrative Tribunals interfere” authored by me in 2007. This book had a Forward by the then High Court Justice Hon. Mr. J. N. Patel who later on became Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court.

This book had received a good response and all the copies have been sold out long back. There has been a constant demand from the officers and employees of the State and Central Government to update and re- print this book. However, due to my health related problems and other pre-occupations, it has not been possible for me to update the book and give it for publication. Therefore, the scanned copy of this book is uploaded on my computer blog “ Departmental Enquiry”. The viewers may click on the photo of the book given at the end of this blog.

  The viewers and readers of the book may please note that the provisions under the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985 and rules thereunder and also Maharashtra Civil Services (Discipline and Appeals) Rules 1979 and Central Civil Services (CCA) Rules, 1965 mentioned in the book are  as they were existing at that point of time and they have not been updated. However, the contents in the chapters such as Protection to civil servants – Article 311 of the constitution, Criminal Proceedings and Disciplinary Proceedings, Scope of interference by Administrative Tribunals, Procedure for conduct of disciplinary proceedings, Appreciation of evidence and preparation of findings, Imposing Penalties, Principles of Natural Justice and instances of their violation, Reasonable Opportunity and instances of its denial, various Case Law, will be quite useful for reference.
