Sub: Sharing of Judgement- Applicability of Hon’ble CAT/Chandigarh’s judgement dated 12.03.2016 in OA No. 060/211/2014 (IRTSA Vs UOI& Others).
It is brought to your notice that an OA No. 060/00211/2014 was filed by Indian Railways Technical Supervisors Association (IRTSA) in Hon’ble CAT, Chandigarh for grant of Group “B” status to various categories of Railway employees such as JEs, SSEs, Chemical and Metallurgical Superintendents (having Grade pay of Rs.4200, Rs.4600 in PB-2).
2. In its judgment order dated 12.03.2016, Hon’ble CAT, Chandigarh has stated “ We find no justification for grant of Group-B status to the applicants. The oA is a gross abuse of process of law because the matter had already attained finality with Order dated 21.02. 1992, letter dated 27.04.1992 and orders dated 19.04.1994 and dated 04.01.1996. The OA is completely devoid of substance and is accordingly dismissed. No costs”.
3. The above judgment of Hon’ble CAT. Chandigarh in the above mentioned OA upholding the “Classification of posts in Indian Railways” may be brought on record by filing appropriate application/additional affidavit in consultation with Railway Advocate wherever cases on the same issue are pending. A copy of the said judgment is available on official Indian Railways website http://www.indianrailwavs.gov.in at the following location :- Ministry of Railways -> Railway Board ->About Indian Railways -+ Railway Board Directorates -> Pay Commission -> Pay Commission VI.
