The applicant Vikalp Yadav submitted that by way of an order dated January 01, 2020, he was posted as Deputy Conservator of Forest at Kotgarh, Shimla district. Just after a stay of nine months at Kotgarh, he was transferred to Nurpur, Kangra district on October 29, 2020. Before he could complete his tenure of two years at Nurpur, he was again transferred to Rampur on March 22.

Pursuant to order he gave his joining report at Rampur on March 25, 2022. Now, just after a period of 15 days, he has once again been transferred to Sarahan, Shimla district.

The applicant argued that order dated April 11, 2022 cannot be sustained it being contrary to the provisions of the Indian Forest Service (Cadre) Rules, 1966 and the principles laid down by the Supreme Court in TSR Subramanian and others Vs. Union of India and others.

“Let the respective written statements be filed by the respondents a day prior to the date fixed with advance copies to the applicant,” says the bench in the order.
