With due regards, your attention is invited to the letter cited under reference on the subject matter whereby MoL&E, Govt of India has been requested to issue necessary clarification/instructions so that disparity amongst the civilian employees of Min of Defence & Min of Railways may be removed.
It is worth to mention here that Hon’ble CAT Hyderabad Bench ordered on 04.04.2014 in OA No. 1372/2012 and Hon’ble CAT Principal Bench ordered on 25.04.2018 in OA No. 650/2016 in favour of employees.

However, it is regretfully reminded that the matter is still pending in Min of Labour & Employment, Govt of India which is causing discontentment amongst the non-petitioner civilian employees of MoD.
