Disciplinary Proceedings – Conclusion of

Disciplinary Proceedings are said to conclude when the disciplinary authority passes an order on the report of the Enquiry Officer. On receipt of the enquiry report the disciplinary authority may adopt any of the following three courses:
(a) He may accept the finding of guilt recorded by the enquiry officer and after supplying copy of the enquiry report to the delinquent employee, proceed to pass the penalty order.
(b) He may disagree with the findings of the enquiry officer and remit the matter for further enquiry.
(c) He may disagree with the findings of the enquiry officer exonerating the employee and himself after giving show cause notice to the employee, proceed to pass orders imposing penalty on the delinquent employee
Thus, disciplinary proceedings do not conclude merely with the recording of findings by the enquiry officer when he submits the enquiry report. Gulam Gausul Azam and others v. State of U.P., 2014 (5) AWC 4657.
