IN THE matter related to employees’ union of Jabalpur Municipal Corporation (JMC) seeking implementation of circular related to regularisation of daily-wage employees, single bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court comprising Justice Subodh Abhyankar on Friday directed the petitioner Nagar Nigam Karmachari Parishad Jabalpur to submit a fresh representation along with all relevant documents before the respondent authorities within a period of two weeks from today and respondents shall decide the same in accordance with law taking into account documents filed by the petitioner and passing a speaking and reasoned order within a period of six weeks from the date of its filing.

The single bench has heard petition filed by Nagar Nigam Karmachari Parishad Jabalpur against the Madhya Pradesh Government. The petitioner before this court is a registered body of employees of Jabalpur Municipal Corporation who has filed this petition for implementation of circular dated October 7, 2016, which relates to regularisation of daily-wage employees.

Counsel for the petitioner submitted that the aforesaid circular was issued on October 7, 2017, but thereafter no action has been taken by respondents although the departmental communication is going on.  Counsel for the petitioner further submitted that some of the corporations have already implemented the aforesaid circular but so far as the respondent, JMC is concerned, the members of the petitioner’s union are awaiting implementation of the same.
