case, for issuance of a writ in the nature of certiorari for quashing order
dated 18.07.2018 (Annexure P-6) passed by the Education Tribunal,
In brief, the case set up is that respondent No.2 was under
contractual employment of DPSG, Palam Vihar, Gurugram and was served
with termination order dated 16.11.2017. The said order was challenged
before the Education Tribunal wherein an application under Section 8 of the
Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (hereinafter referred to as the Act of

a written contract of service with every employee of such school and as per
Section 20 (3) (e) of the said Act, any dispute arising out of any breach of
contract between the employee and the managing committee with regard to
pay and other allowances, leave of absence, age of retirement, contributory
provident fund and other benefits and any disciplinary action leading to the
dismissal or removal from service or reduction in rank of the employee, will
be referred to the arbitration. Once a contract of service has been entered
into specifying terms and conditions of service of an employee, his
allowances, age of retirement etc. and a dispute arises with regard thereto
including a dispute regarding dismissal or removal from service or
reduction in the rank, the matter has to be referred to the arbitration.
Learned counsel appearing for the petitioner would further
argue that even though the Education Tribunal has been set up in terms of
the judgment rendered by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in TMA Pai
Foundation and others Vs. State of Karnataka and others (2002) 8 SCC
481, it would not be able to adjudicate a dispute which has arisen between
the employer and employee in case a service contract has been entered into
between them, containing a clause for arbitration. It is also argued that
service contract has been duly signed by both the parties and therefore, the
matter has to be necessarily referred to arbitration, which has not been done
in the present case, as the application under Section 8 of the Act of 1996
stands dismissed.
The question that arises for consideration is whether an
Education Tribunal can entertain the matter where a service contract has

The matter has not reached finality, so at this stage, no party can state that they have won or lost. The Hon'ble court has not considered the matter on its merits and has fixed the matter for hearing all the parties on 31.07.23 on the question of whether the Tribunal can hear the matter or whether it has to be referred for arbitration as per the service contract. Hopefully, the court would hear the matter on that date and you can be sanguine of success.
