New Delhi: A Delhi court has pronounced its verdict in favour of a private firm executive, 34 years after he filed a complaint against his dismissal.
Civil Judge Vikram passed the decree worth over Rs 22,000 plus interest on it in favour of Amritsar-based private firm`s former manager Gobind Ram, oblivious of the fact how would it implement the judgement, despite its failure to secure the presence of the two parties before it to pursue their cases after November 1996.
"The evidence in the case was over in July 04, 1985 thereafter revision against closing of evidence was also dismissed on November 04, 1996. For these many years suit was
pending at the stage of final arguments," the court noted while deciding the case in favour of Ram, who too had stopped attending the court since 1996.
"No advocate from either side addressed arguments. Even notices were also sent but none appeared to address arguments. Therefore the findings on issues will be given without hearing arguments," the court said, while passing its judgement.
The court awarded the relief to who had alleged that Taneja Skins Co Private Ltd, based at Sadar Bazaar here, had sacked him in February 1975 after paying him salary only up to October 1974.
