Heard Sri D.N. Sharma, learned counsel for the applicant, perused the pleadings and the documents annexed there with the OA.3. This matter is related to release of HRA which was held up by the respondent authority vide its order dated 10.06.2020. Sri D.N. Sharma, learned counsel appearing for the applicant submitted that without any valid reason, payment of HRA to the applicant was stopped by the respondent authority vide order dated 26.03.2020 and held up vide order dated 10.06.2020. After so many correspondences over telephone, applicant made a representation to the SPOs, Dhubri vide his letter No. A1/Misc/Glp Sub Divn. Dated 17.04.2020 for releasing of HRA. However, same has not been responded till date.4. From the perusal of applicant’s application dated 17.04.2020, Annexure –A/13, page 162 made before the Superintendent of Post Offices, Goalpara Division, Dhubri, it appears that only two lines are there in the said application.5. In view of the above, we deem it fit and proper to direct the applicant to approach before the respondent authorities for redressal of his grievances. Accordingly, without going into the merit of the case as well as without issuing notice upon the respondents, we direct the applicant to make a comprehensive representation before the respondent No. 3 i.e. Superintendent of Post Offices, Goalpara Division, Dhubri within a period of fifteen days from the date of receipt of this order. On receipt of such representation, the respondent No. 3 shall consider and dispose of it by passing a reasoned and speaking order within a

period of two months thereafter.6. Whatever decisions to be passed by the respondent No. 3 shall be communicated to the applicant forthwith.7. With the above directions, O.A. stands disposed of at the admission stage itself. No order as to costs.
