Stepping up of pay of Assistants/Steno Gr.C of CSS/CSSS

An important letter

If there is any error in the order dated 29-8-2011 the applicant can file a MA(Review Application) before the Hon'ble CAT, New Delhi by 29-9-2011 as per CAT Procedure. The impugned order dated 24-3-2009 should either be set aside or quashed or OA be dismissed if the applicant prays before the Hon'ble CAT to set aside impugned order dated 24-3-2009. However as the applicant's advocate pressed to withdraw the OA with liberty to file afresh so as to reconsider impugned order dated 24-3-2009 and also the Hon'ble CAT agreed the same the case was dismissed. As such, in my opinion, impugned order dated 24-3-2009 needs further elaboration and should not be contradictory with Ministry of Finance, OM dated 13-11-2009 wherein pay scale of 6500-10500 were upgraded to 7450-12000 w.e.f. 1-1-2006. As the Department felt not possible to layer 5000-8000, 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 again as per recommendation of 6CPC wherever 6500-10500 goes to 7450-12000 the scales of 5000-8000, 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 should follow. Hence Steno II, I and PS of outside Secretariat should be entitled 7450-12000 w.e.f. 1.1.2006 in terms of MOF OM dated 13-11-2009 and DOP impugned order dated 24-3-2009. In such assumption Steno-II and I of my office fixed pay at grade pay of Rs. 4600 w.e.f. 1.1.2006 and arrears drawn but till date no recovery is made.
