The Delhi High Court has dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking direction from the central government to withdraw the posting of all army officials and personnel from Assam Rifles.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma said a PIL is not maintainable in service matters and any individual aggrieved with his posting with Assam Rifles has the liberty to approach the court.

“The relief not granted by the division bench again forms part of the prayer clause in the present PIL. Otherwise also, in service matters, no PIL is maintainable,” observed the bench, also comprising Justice Subramonium Prasad, in its order dated October 17.

“The present writ petition is not maintainable. Liberty is granted to any individual posted in Assam Rifles and aggrieved with the matter. The petition dismisses with the above observations,” the court ordered.

The petitioner, a retired Assam Rifles commandant, objected to the posting of army officers with Assam Rifles in the PIL. He urged that there should be an end to violation of the Assam Rifles Act, Rules and Regulations related to posting matters.
