Meanwhile, the defendants were directed not to proceed for further postings/ adjustments of defendants 5 to 910 following their promotion in terms of impugned orders, till next date of hearing.
The plaintiffs, herein, are aggrieved of promotional order passed in favour of promotee defendants in terms of order impugned, hereinabove, precisely on the ground that their promotional order has been passed in violation of approved seniority, which is against promotion policy of bank. In fact, the bank has resorted to pick and chose and has deprived plaintiffs of acquiring promotional benefits as they were similarly situated with promote officers; That in the first order defendants 794 to 910 were not promoted on account of inferior APRs but subsequently they too have been promoted, this shows that the promotion order suffers from malafide exercise of powers by defendants.
