Employee can't be denied promotion on ground of quarrel with wife: HC

The Madras High Court has held that an employee cannot be deprived of promotion on the ground that there is some family quarrel between him and his wife.

Justice D Hariparanthaman was disposing of a petition filed by one A Velusamy working as an Assistant Audit officer in the Chief Internal Audit officer, Audit Branch, Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation, Chennai.

The petitioner had sought a direction to authorities to include his name in the panel for promotion to the post of Internal Audit officer.

In his order, the judge said: “If there is only some family dispute between the petitioner and his wife relating to their marriage, the same cannot be put against the petitioner for promotion. Even if a private complaint for bigamy is pending, I am of the view that the same cannot be put against the petitioner”.
