New Delhi, Oct 22 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Wednesday fined a company Rs.100,000 for lowering the dignity and honour of judicial officers in an employment advertisement. Directing D.S. Group, the manufacturer of Rajnigandha Pan Masala, to pay the amount within four weeks, a division bench of Justice Mukul Mudgal and Justice Manmohan said the money would be deposited in the name of Bachpan Bachao Andolan, an NGO working for the rights of child labourers.
The court accepted an apology tendered by the company over the advertisement following a complaint by the petitioner, advocate Sunita Tiwari.
In September last year, the company had invited applications for its legal head, with the eligibility criteria being mentioned as “LL B, LL M or a retired judge with contacts in the judiciary”.
The petitioner alleged the advertisement was malicious and lowered the dignity and honour of judicial officers.
