PROVINCIAL ASSEMBLY OF THE PUNJAB

Bill No. 7 of 2014

PUNJAB EMPLOYEES’ EFFICIENCY, DISCIPLINE & ACCOUNTABILITY (AMENDMENT) BILL 2014

A
B i l l
further to amend the Punjab Employees Efficiency,
Discipline and Accountability Act, 2006.

Preamble.– Whereas it is expedient further to amend the Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability Act 2006 (XII of 2006) for purposes hereinafter appearing;
It is enacted as follows:-

1. Short title and commencement.– (1) This Act may be cited as the Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability (Amendment) Act 2014.
(2) It shall come into force at once.

2. Amendment in section 19 of Act XII of 2006.– In the Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability Act 2006 (XII of 2006),for section 19, the following shall be substituted:-
“19. Appeal before the Service Tribunal.– (1) An employee, other than the employee mentioned in section 2(h)(i), aggrieved by a final order passed under section 16 or 17 may, within thirty days from the date of communication of the order, prefer an appeal to the Punjab Service Tribunal established under the Punjab Service Tribunals Act 1974 (IX of 1974).
(2) If the Appellate Authority or the Chief Minister does not pass any final order on the departmental appeal or the review petition filed under section 16 within a period of sixty days from the date of filing of the departmental appeal or the review petition, the aggrieved employee, not being the employee mentioned in section 2(h)(i), may prefer an appeal to the Punjab Service Tribunal within ninety days of the filing of the departmental appeal or review petition.
(3) On the exercise of the option in terms of subsection (2), the appeal or, as the case may be, the review pending before the Appellate Authority or the Chief Minister shall abate to the extent of such employee.”

STATEMENT OF OBJECTS AND REASONS

The certain employees of different Universities upon imposition of penalties under the Punjab Employees Efficiency, Discipline and Accountability Act, 2006 preferred appeals before the Punjab Service Tribunal in terms of section 19 of the Act. It has been held by the Supreme Court and the Punjab Service Tribunal that employees of corporations including universities are not civil servants and they cannot invoke the jurisdiction of the Punjab Service Tribunal established under Article 212 of the Constitution. In order to resolve this controversy, it is proposed that all such employees of corporations may be excluded from the category of employees who have right to approach the Punjab Service Tribunal against order passed in departmental appeal or review. Such employees, however, if aggrieved by any order passed in departmental appeal or review, may approach the courts of general jurisdiction including the Lahore High Court. Hence this Bill.
