M/S.Imayam Publications Pvt. Ltd vs The Asst. Provident Fund ...

Madras High Court|28 September, 2017


The petitioner has preferred this Writ Petition challenging the order of the second respondent-Tribunal, dated 01.09.2017 in E.P.F.A.No.37 of 2017, wherein the Tribunal has directed the writ petitioner to deposit 30% of the award amount determined under Section 7-A of the Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act. The petitioner will have to pay 75% of the amount in terms of the provisions of the said Act and the Rules made thereunder. On the petition filed by the petitioner for waiver of the condition to deposit 75% of the amount, the Tribunal has permitted the petitioner to deposit 30% of the award amount, in which this Court finds no illegality. The request for reduction of the amount to be paid on the ground that there is financial constraint, cannot be a ground for this Court to entertain this Writ Petition. The interim order passed by the second respondent-Tribunal is perfectly valid in law and this Court finds no reason to interfere with the same. Hence, the Writ Petition is dismissed. However, taking note of the time limit that would expire on 03.10.2017, the petitioner is permitted to deposit the amount on or before 10.10.2017, as ordered by the Tribunal, in E.P.F.A.No.37 of 2017, dated 01.09.2017. No costs. W.M.Ps. are closed.
