3. Mr. E. Lalsangluaia, learned for the petitioner submits that in spite of the materials on record which clearly reflected that the petitioner has been in service since 1978, formal regularization however, has not been accorded. He further submits that as the petitioner was appointed against a sanctioned post, there should be no impediment on the part of the respondents to regularize his service from the date of his initial appointment.

6. It is understood that as regularization of the petitioner has been approved, all consequential benefits as entitled shall be accorded to the petitioner, and entire process shall be completed expeditiously preferabl
