who says the penalty is ineffective. the penalty is enhanced and the da is fully competent to do so. i dont agree that he can call for papers and revise the orders suo moto. if suo moto action is to be taken the only course is by the reviewing authority. if procedure is to be followed then the d e can appeal to the next authority than the one who has now imposed the penalty. if unfortunately such an authority who has imposed this penalty happens to be h.o.d then the gm is the last and then go to President as per RII ask for rrt etc.in any case how did the p.branch allowed such things in the first instance. either the apo dpo etc. etc. who must have been processing the case must have pointed this out. I still remember one Mr. Rajamani(may his soul rest in peace)OS pointing out such things to the apo who in turn will practically wait at the doors of the officer who has passed such orders and get them rectified before issuing. of course, there have been cases where some dy.hods, hods or in the division branch officers arguing that they are right and that APO OS had put their foot down saying that they are supposed to know better as far as such rules are concerned than the mechanical civil engineers or optg. commercial officers!!!!!!!!!!
