AIRF’s memorandum to 7th CPC:-
Article 39, Clause (d) under the Directive Principles of our Constitution provides that “The state shall in particular direct its policy towards securing …. “Equal pay for equal work – for both men and women”.
“… It is the intention of the Assembly that in future, both the Legislature and the Executive should not merely leap service to these principles, but they should be made basis of all Legislative and Executive actions, that they may be taking thereafter in the name of governance in the country.”
“The core of the Constitution lies in Part III & IV in the Fundamental Rights and the Directive Principles of the State Policy. These are conscience of the Constitution…”
“The Directive Principles of the Constitution did not countenance the invidious distinction which was sought to be made on the basis of the character of the employer.” (Para 63, page 41-42 Vol.I).
“Since the Government has the controlling, if not the sole interest, in the Public Sector Undertakings, and is also the authority for appointment and removal of the members of the Board of Management, it cannot disown responsibility for such vital matters as the pay scales adopted by the Undertakings and the disparities between those scales and the pay scales applicable to its own Employees”(para 64, page 42, Vol.I).
