            In such a case, the Review Petition shall be placed before the members who passed the order for consideration by circulation.  If one of them is of the view that it merits a hearing, then the petition shall be placed before that Bench for preliminary hearing.  In such a case, it would not be necessary to seek orders of the Chairman.

 

2.         Review of order passed by the bench of which one member belongs to the local Bench and the other is a member of another Bench.

 

            In such a case, the Review Petition shall be sent for consideration by circulation to the members who passed the order.  If one of them is of the view that it merits a hearing, then the petition shall be placed for preliminary hearing.  For that purpose, the Vice-Chairman of the local Bench shall seek  orders of the Chairman.

 

3.                  Review of  order in which both the members have ceased to be members of the Tribunal.

 

In such a case, the Vice-Chairman shall place the Review Petition for preliminary hearing before a Bench consisting of any two members of that Bench.  It would not be necessary to seek orders of the Chairman in such a case. 

 

4.         Review of order in which one of the members has ceased to be a member of the Tribunal.

 

            If one of the members who passed the order is available in that bench, the Vice-Chairman shall constitute a bench with him/her and any other member of the bench and place the petition for preliminary hearing.

 

            If not, the Vice-Chairman shall constitute a Bench consisting of any two members of that Bench.

 

5.         Review of order when both the members who passed the order are members of other Benches.

 

                        In such a case, the Vice-Chairman shall arrange to send the Review petition to both the members to consider the petition by circulation.  If one of them is of the view that the petition merits a hearing, then the petition shall be placed for preliminary hearing.  For that purpose, the Vice-Chairman shall  seek orders of the Chairman.

 

REVIEW OF ORDERS PASSED BY A SINGLE MEMBER BENCH

 

II.        (a)        If the single member who decided the case continues to be a member of that   bench, the petition shall be placed before him/her for consideration by circulation.  If the member is of the view that the petition merits a hearing, it shall be posted before him/her for preliminary hearing.

 

            (b)        If the member who decided the case has become a member of another Bench of the Tribunal, the Vice-Chairman shall send the petition to him/her for being considered by circulation.  If the member is of the view tat the petition merits a hearing, then the petition shall be placed for preliminary hearing. For that purpose the Vice-Chairman shall seek orders of the Chairman.

 

(c )       If the single member who passed the order has ceased to be a member of the Tribunal, then the Vice-Chairman shall post the petition for preliminary hearing before any member of the Bench.  In such a case, it would not be necessary to seek the orders of the Chairman.

 

III.       If the Review Petition is not summarily dismissed, further hearing shall be by the very same Bench constituted as per the aforesaid provisions.

 

IV.       Orders of the Chairman may be sought when a situation not covered by the above provisions arises or when in the interest of justice it is necessary to deviate from the same.

 

Note.-  The above procedure shall mutatis mutandis be followed in the Principal Bench.
