Employee can be dismissed for forging rent receipt: HC

Forging rent receipt can cost an employee his job as the Delhi High Court has held that such a person can be dismissed from service even in the absence of any rules.

Justice Rajiv Sahay Endlaw dismissed the plea of an employee that departmental inquiry and consequent dismissal from job for forging a rent receipt was illegal as the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy had no rules governing services.

"The element of faith between the employer and the employee is necessary and forms the basis of this relationship where both work for their respective gains. Once such faith and trust is breached, the employer cannot be forced to keep the employee in which it has lost faith.
