Life is a trip. The only problem is that it does not come with a map. We have to search our own routes to reach our destination.

Roznama or Daily Order Sheet- Importance of

Daily order sheet or Roznama is very important document in the process of conduct of departmental inquiry.It is a running record of all the important events taken place during the course of conduct of inquiry.The court or tribunal may at times ask the disciplinary authorities to produce the same. In the absence of Daily order sheet it is difficult to ascertain whether the proper procedure was followed during the conduct of inquiry. If the daily order sheet is not maintained , in the absence of any other evidence, the court may come to the conclusion that no reasonable opportunity was given to the charge employee and the order of penalty may be set aside.However whenever the dispute arises as to what happened during the inquiry, the statement of the inquiring authority is generally taken as correct as held by the supreme court in the case of Union Of India V/S T.R. Varma ,AIR 1957 Sc 882. The said judgement is available at serial number 35 in the list under the caption Disciplinary Proceedings- Important Judgments.

Disciplinary Proceedings- Presentations

I am invited for taking sessions on various aspects relating to Departmental Proceedings, in the various training programmes conducted by reputed training institutes like Yashvantrav Chavan Academy of Development Administration , Pune, National Institute of  Defense Financial Management, Pune, Rashtriya Chemicals & Fertilizer's training institute Mumbai etc. While taking the sessions I had made Power Point Presentations which were found to be very useful for the participants as well as myself. These presentations include not only the related topics but also the questions and answers to judge whether the participants have acquired the knowledge which will be helpful to them while dealing withe cases related to disciplinary proceedings.  

I thought that these presentations will be useful not only for Government employees but also to the   of regular and guest faculties which take the sessions on disciplinary proceedings in the training programmes  conducted for State Government employees and the Central Government employees. I have therefore uploaded a few  presentations on  this blog. They can be downloaded by clicking on     Presentations under the caption " Disciplinary Proceedings". The viewers may send me their feedback if any to me on my email address,
