2. Mr.P.K.Roy, learned counsel appearing on behalf of the applicant submitted that the applicant is a physically handicapped person (Orthopaedically handicapped) with 40% disability. He was appointed initially through the Staff Selection, as a clerk under physically handicapped quota on 17.06.1996 in the Establishment of the Controller of Defence Accounts(CDA), Govt. of India. The applicants such physical disability, entitles him to the benefits provided under the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, protection of Rights and full participation). Act, 1995. After passing of subordinate Accounts Service(SAS). Part 1 and part II successively, the applicant got 2(two) promotion out of turn, initially on 10.08.2000 as Auditor (after passing SAS part-1) and later on 28.04.2003 as Section officer (Accounts) (after passing part II examination) many of his seniors in the feeder grade were not promoted. The applicant got promotion to the higher grade of ‘Assistant Accounts Officer along with other on 02.04.2007, only when the vacancy in the set Grade had arisen. The Post of Accounts officer(AC), being to Group ”B” post was however not brought within reservation against 3% reserved quota for physically handicapped persons, by various departments of the Govt., of India till the year 2016, when the honorable Supreme Court, in a landmark judgment in the case of Raju Kumar Vs. Union of India in writ (Civil) No.1521 of 2008 and Civil Appeal No.5389 of 2016, after going through the provisions of Section 32 and 33 of the 1995 Act and all the relevant office Memorandum, issued by the Govt., of India, from time to time in relation to the matter, has declared and held that. Group “A” and “e” pasts should also be covered under the said 1995 Act.

3. Learned counsel further submitted that pursuant to the judgment passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, the inchoate right of the, applicant, to get the statutory benefit of reservation in promotion against Grade B Post, as a Physically Handicapped person, in to a full-fledged right. The applicant therefore, filed a representation, through proper channel, before the Controller General of Defence Accounts (CGDA) (AN).

But without extending the said statutory benefits to the applicant, the respondent authority has granted promotion to the post of Accounts officer, against unreserved category of posts, effective from the date of joining. The applicant therefore, has filed instant O.A. for a direction for antedating his said promotion to the past of Accounts Officer, on and from 2009, when the applicant found suitable under the 3% reservation against physically handicapped quota.

4.

5. The Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Rajeev Kumar Gupta and others V.Union of India and Others (2016) 13 SCC 153 in (Writ Petition No.521 of 2008) dated 30.06.2016 has held that; “We further direct the Government to extend three percent reservation to PWD in all IDENTIFIED POSTS in Groups A and Group B, irrespective of the mode of filling up of such posts. This writ petition it accordingly allowed”.

6. 6. Learned counsel further submitted that the impugned communication dated 18.05.2018, having been passed, in contravention of the judgment and order passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, the same has to be rendered as non-est in the eye of law and as such liable to be set aside.
