A brief note about CAT case


            I, along with Mr. K.S. Krishna Murthy, Treasurer, attended the hearing at CAT., New Delhi on 29.08.2011.  The Hon’ble CAT directed to represent on Annexure “A-1” to OA ie., letter No. 4-7/2008-PCC dtd. 24.03.2009 wherein it was mentioned that

“The common category of Stenographers in the field offices of Department of Posts have to be granted the revised pay structure for office staff working in organizations outside the Secretariat as notified by the CCS (RP) Rule, 2008 and the pay scale of common category posts can not be upgraded only in the case of a particular department.  Further, allowing upgradation of pay scales solely on account of (a) feeder grade post coming to lie in the same grade as the promotional posts; and (b) posts in the same pre-revised grade getting higher revised pay on account of the recommendations of the Sixth CPC will defeat the very purpose of de-layering for which the Pay Commission had recommended merger of pre-revised pay scales of Rs. 5,000-800, Rs. 5500-9000 and Rs. 6500-10500”.

As such, the case has been withdrawn for the time being.  THE CASE IS NOT DISMISSED.  IT IS STILL OPEN.  Please don’t get disheartened.  We will appeal again.

The said impugned order was actually a reply to our earlier representation dated 18.11.2008.  Hence, it was not felt necessary to appeal again and, in fact, we approached the CAT on the basis of the impugned order.  Next week, we will be filing again.  We will keep you informed
