Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Comilla
(Managing Committee of the recognizable Non-Government Schools) Regulations,
Without giving any
Opportunity of hearing
We could not find any authority in support of
the action taken by respondent 3, the Additional Deputy Commissioner (Revenue)
retiring the headmaster and asking him to hand over the charge of the office. I
le may be the ex-officio Chairman of the managing committee. But he has got no
power to direct the Headmaster either to retire or ask to hand over charge
independent of the managing committee, it is on record that the managing
committee considered the long devoted service of the headmaster to the school
in three meetings in his presence and in the last meeting when the resolution
extending the service was adopted he did not attend, lie cannot supersede the
resolution of such managing committee by executive flat. His action smacks of
bureaucratic mindset, which cannot be endorsed.
