  1. शासकीय सेवेत असताना निरनिराळया कालावधीत त्या कर्मचा-याचा काहीही दाेष नसतांना नकळत वेतन भत्याची रक्कम जादा केली जाते .अशा वेळी त्या कर्मचा-याला जबाबदार धरून ती रक्कम कित्येक वेळ सेवा निव्रुतीवेतनातूनही वसुल केली जाते.हा कर्मचा-यांवर हाेणारा अन्याय न्यायालयाने दूर केलेला आहे.त्या निर्णयाचे स्वागतच करावयास हवे.न्यायाधिशांना धन्यवाद ध्यायलाच हवे.
