Bombay HC stays termination of MSRTC chief

MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Tuesday stayed a government order terminating Jeevanrao Gore from the post as chairperson of Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), without assigning any valid reason.

The state advocate general Sunil Manohar and Abhinandan Vagyani said the tenure and the appointment is at the "pleasure of the government" and hence the termination by the new BJP government was valid. Gore was appointed by the earlier Congress led government in September 2012. But Gore's case is that his appointment is for three years and he cannot be dismissed prior to that. The HC said it would hear the matter now in February to decide what the term "pleasure" would entitle the government to do and whether it meant that the government can terminate the appointment within three years.

Gore, an engineering graduate has held various significant posts in Maharashtra since 1991.

He said that the government has no powers under the Road Transport Corporation Act, 1950 to terminate the MSRTC chairman's job

The government had issued a notification on December 23, 2014, saying that the appointment of Gore and other directors of MSRTC was terminated. They were given one month's notice. The notification, however, did not mention any reason for terminating the appointments before completion of their three-year tenure.
