Babus took casual leave: Govt to HC on mass leave issue

The AAP government on Monday said in the Delhi High Court that the bureaucrats who allegedly went on mass leave to protest against its decision to suspend two of its DANICS officers in December 2015, had availed casual leave in their individual capacity.

The submission was made before a Bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, which was hearing a plea seeking action against bureaucrats who went on mass leave in protest on December 29, 2015.

"The records do not conclude that IAS and DANICS officers has resorted to any illegal action by way of availing casual leave. It is apparent that the officers had availed casual leave in their individual capacity. It is quite natural that officers either take casual leave or earned leave during the year end subject to the availability of adequate credit of leave and it was nothing unusual," the counsel for the Delhi government submitted.
