HC orders status quo on GO till June 15

Chennai,June 04: The Madras High Court has ordered status quo till June 15, 2008 with regard to a Government Order (GO), terminating the services of a para-medical staff appointed through contract.
The above order was given by Justice M Sathyanarayanan on a petition filed by Tamil Nadu Government Hospitals Workers Union Treasurer K Varadarajan, seeking to quash a GO, dated this February 28, of Director of Public Health and Preventive Medicine. The petition also sought a direction to the government not to terminate the petitioner from service and regularise his service as a lab technician.
The petitioner contended that he and over 2,500 others were appointed by the government through a private contract in various primary health centres to the posts like drivers, ECG and lab technicians and data entry operators.
He submitted that they were in service continuously for a meagre salary of Rs 1300 to Rs 3000 and the government through the above GO proposed to terminate their service with effect from June one, 2008 and all the para-medical posts be filled in time scale of pay through the employment exchange.
The petitioner contended that he was entitled to be regularised in service as he had completed 280 days in service in 24 calendar months and the GO was contrary to law and violation of Article 14 of the Constitution
