• BSNL - Conduct, Discipline and Appeal Rules, 2006 - Treating the period as Dies-non is not one of the punishments prescribed under the Rules - Neither his seniority nor his career progression or retirement entitlement would be affected by such an order passed by the Authority - Show cause notice was issued by the Accounts Officer (PC) who had no authority to issue the same - On a careful perusal of the entire file, we find that it was only the Disciplinary Authority who has ultimately issued show cause notice for dereliction of duty, misconduct and indiscipline and passed the impugned order - Therefore, the initial show cause notice issued by the Accounts Officer (PC) does not have any impact on the proceedings initiated as against the writ petitioner by competent Disciplinary Authority.  (180) P.L.R.
