to. The respondent No.6 filed an affidavit-in-opposition controverting the statements made in the Writ Petition, stating, inter alia, that after bifurcation of the then Dhaka City Corporation, due to retirement of the earlier Chief Accounts Officer, the petitioner was given additional charge as Chief Accounts Officer of the Dhaka North City Corporation and current charge of the Dhaka South City Corporation respectively. However, by the impugned order dated 29-3-2012, respondent No. 6 was transferred to the post of Chief Accounts Officer of Dhaka North City Corporation and Respondent No.7, was posted as Chief Accounts Officer of the Dhaka South City Corporation under deputation as per Rule 8 of the XvKv †cŠi K‡c©v‡ikb Kg©Pvix PvKzix wewagvjv, 1989.
11. On 29-3-2012, for the purpose of appointing Chief Accounts Officer in the Dhaka North City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation, the Government placed the service of Respondent Nos. 6 and 7 to the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives. Earlier, the Chief Accounts Officer of Dhaka City Corporation retired from his service and for smooth functioning of the accounts section, the petitioner, who was at that time working as Deputy Chief Accounts Officer, was given additional charge and current charge of Dhaka North City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation respectively. By giving the said charges, the authority neither gave any promotion to the petitioner nor any right had accrued to the petitioner to be promoted to the said post. The petitioner sought remedy against Dhaka North City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation, but in the instant case, the petitioner has not served any notice upon the Dhaka North  City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation and, as such, the Rule issued in the said writ petition is liable to be discharged.
12. As per Rule 8 of the XvKv †cŠi K‡c©v‡ikb Kg©Pvix PvKzix wewagvjv, 1989, there is a provision for appointment on the basis of deputation and the Respondent Nos. 6 and 7 have been appointed as Chief Accounts Officer of Dhaka North City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation respectively by complying with the said Rule and as such, there is no illegality.
13. In 1990 an organogram was approved by the Dhaka Municipal Corporation, which was approved by the Ministry of Local Government, by the said organogram, the post of Deputy Chief Accounts Officer was Created for the first time. In the said Organogram, it has been specifically provided that the Chief Accounts Officer will be appointed by deputation. But the writ petitioner has willfully suppressed this fact. After filing the writ petition, the petitioner is still functioning as the Deputy Chief Accounts Officer of Dhaka North City Corporation and by the Impugned Order, his service has not any way been disturbed and there is no reason of the petitioner to be aggrieved by the impugned Order and as such the Rule is liable to be discharged.
14. The petitioner filed an affidavit-in-reply against the Affidavit-in-Opposition filed by the respondent No.6. It is stated that as per Rule 8 of the Dhaka Pouro Corporation Employees Service Rules, 1989, the authority can transfer any employee on deputation to any post in the City Corporation and/or by complying with the said Rule. Respondent No.6 has been transferred from his earlier post of Director, Railway Audit Department to the post of Chief Accounts Officer, Dhaka North City Corporation, which is without lawful authority, since, as per Rule-8 of the Dhaka Pouro Corporation Employees Service Rules, 1989 the authority can transfer any employee to any post, subject to the Schedule of the said Service Rules -1989.
15. Item No-17 of the Schedule of the said service Rules provides that the post of Chief Accounts Officer shall be filled in either by promotion or by direct appointment. There is no scope to transfer any employee on deputation to that post i.e. the post of Chief Accounts Officer. Therefore, it is apparent that the authority posted Respondent Nos. 6 and 7 in the said post of Chief Account's Officer of Dhaka. North City Corporation and Dhaka South City Corporation respectively in violation of Item No. 17 of the Schedule of the Service Rules-1989.
16.
