KAT orders issue of contempt notices

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, MARCH 29. The Karnataka Administrative Tribunal (KAT) has ordered that contempt notices be issued to the Principal and the former Principal of Government Pre-University College in Chamarajpet, Bangalore.

The contempt proceedings were initiated following an application by H. Anjane Gowda, lecturer in physics, who was promoted as Principal of PU Government College in Chamarajpet.

He said the retired Principal of the college, Sudhamani, and the current Principal, C.H. Bhagya, had violated the KAT orders of February 28, 2005 and, hence, sought issue of contempt notices against them.

158 lecturers promoted

The applicant said the State Government on January 6, 2005 promoted 158 lecturers and posted them as principals of various PU colleges in the State. The Government promoted Mr. Gowda, lecturer in physics, as Principal of PU College, Chamarajpet. Mr. Gowda was asked to take charge on February 28, 2005 as Principal after the retirement of Ms. Sudhamani.

The applicant said C.H. Bhagya, a lecturer, was posted to the PU College at Hiresave in Channarayapatna taluk. She, however, did not report for duty and, on February 24, managed to get a Government Order issued posting her as the Principal of the Chamarajpet college. She was asked to take charge after Ms. Sudhamani retired. The Government, however, did not give any posting to Mr. Gowda, who then moved the KAT.

The KAT on February 28 stayed the GO and Mr. Gowda went to the college to inform the Principal, Ms. Sudhamani, about it. He asked the Principal not to allow Ms. Bhagya to take over as Principal in view of the KAT order.

However, Ms. Sudhamani refused to accept Mr. Gowda's contention and handed over charge to Ms. Bhagya. The applicant said both Ms. Sudhamani and Ms. Bhagya had committed contempt by deliberately disobeying the KAT order.

The KAT has directed Ms. Sudhamani and Ms. Bhagya to appear before it on April 15 and adjourned further hearing on the matter.
