A plea seeking alteration of the date of birth in records by an employee at the fag end of career should not be entertained, the Madras High Court has said while dismissing a review application.

“If an employee seeks an alteration of his date of birth on the eve of his retirement, then a court of law must be doubly careful and cautious in accepting the request, as the attitude or tendency among the employees to raise such a plea comes only at the fag end of their career.

“Therefore, such a plea for alteration at the eleventh hour should not be entertained because of the possible wide ranging ramifications and repercussion to follow, which may result in compounding the problem in a manifold ways,” said a division bench comprising Justices M Venugopal and S Baskaran while dismissing the review application on July 24.

The application was filed by one Jeyaratnakumar to review a division bench order which declined to effect changes in records related to his date of birth.

The petitioner was appointed as Assistant Public Prosecutor in the Department of Prosecutions by the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission in 1995 on the basis of his date of birth of June 1, 1960.
