पेंशनभोगियों के लिए आनुमानिक वेतन वृद्धि

2045. डा.सी.एम.रमेशः

क्या प्रधानमंत्री यह बताने की कृपा करेगे किः

(क) कया केन्द्रीय प्रशासनिक अधिकरण, इलाहाबाद शाखा, इलाहाबाद ने दिनांक 26/2/2021 के अपने आदेश में यह कहा है कि ‘जो कोई भी अलग-अलग वर्ष में 30 जून को सरकारी सेवा से सेवानिवृत्त होता है, वह आनुमानिक वेतन वृद्धि का पात्र है और ऐसे मामलों का निर्वचन हमेशा ‘सर्वसंबंधी!’ होता है और इसका निर्वचन ‘प्रकृति में व्यक्तिबंदी’ के रूप में नहीं किया जा सकता है, तत्संबंधी ब्यौरा क्या है; और

(ख) इस मामले के संबंध में उच्चतम न्यायालय के दिनांक 23/07/2018 के आदेश के मद्देनजर और पुनर्विचार याचिका सं. 1731/2019 के संबंध में दिनांक 08/08/2019 के आदेश के अनुरूप कार्मिक एवं प्रशिक्षण विभाग उक्त के संबंध में इन पेंशनभोगियों के लिए आवश्यक आदेश कब तक जारी करेगा, तत्संबंधी ब्योरा क्‍या है और यदि नहीं, तो इसके क्या कारण हैं?

उत्तर

कार्मिक,, लोक शिकायत तथा पेंशन मंत्रालय में राज्य मंत्री तथा प्रधान मंत्री कार्यालय में राज्य मंत्री (डॉ. जितेन्द्र सिंह)
(क) केन्द्रीय प्रशासनिक अधिकरण, इलाहाबाद बेंच ने ओ.ए.सं. 330/00146/2020 में अपने दिनांक 26.2.2021 के आदेश में अन्य बातों के साथ-साथ यह देखा कि वेतन नियतन से संबंधित मामले सरकार की एक समान नीति द्वारा शासित होते हैं और इसलिए इन मामलों में कोई भी निर्णय हमेशा ‘सर्वसंबंधी’ (इन रेम) होता है और व्यक्तिबंदी (इन पर्सोनम) रूप से निर्णय के रूप में इसकी व्याख्या नहीं की जा सकती है।

राजस्व विभाग, प्रतिवादी सं. 1 ने सूचित किया है कि ओ.ए.सं. 330/00146/2020 में दिनांक 26.2.2021 के आदेश को इलाहाबाद उच्च न्यायालय, इलाहाबाद के समक्ष रिट याचिका डब्ल्यूआरआईए 7911/2021 के माध्यम से चुनौती दी गई है।

(ख) 30 जून/31 दिसम्बर को सेवानिवृत्त हुए केन्द्रीय सरकारी कर्मचारियों को कल्पित वेतन वृद्धि के मामले में कई निर्णय/आदेश अदालतों/सीएटी द्वारा सुनाए गए हैं। पी. अय्यामपेरूमल के मामले में वर्ष 2017 की डब्ल्यू. पी. सं. 15732 में मद्रास उच्च न्यायालय के दिनांक 15.09.2017 के निर्णय के संबंध में उच्चतम न्यायात्रय के दिनांक 23.07.2018 और दिनांक 08.08.2019 के आदेशों को सर्वसंबंधी’ नहीं मानकर व्यक्तिबंदी (इन पर्सोनम) माना गया था।

दूसरी ओर, इसी विषय पर एक समान मामले में भारत संघ बनाम सखा राम त्रिपाठी के मामले में एसएलपी (सी) डायरी संख्या 6468/2019 को खारिज करते समय उच्चतम न्यायालय ने दिनांक 29.03.2019 के अपने निर्णय के तहत कानून के प्रश्नों को खुला रखा है।

इसके अतिरिक्त रेलत्र मंत्रालय के मामले में दिनांक 30.06.2014 को सेवानिवृत्त हुए एक कर्मचारी को सीएटी, बेंगलुरू बेंच ने कल्पित वाषिक वेतन वृद्धि की अनुमति दी है, इस मामले में उच्चतम न्यायालय ने एसएलपी (सी) संख्या 4722/2021 में दिनांक 05.04.2021 के आदेश के माध्यम से दिनांक 18.12.2019 के उक्त आदेश के क्रियान्वयन पर रोक लगा दी है।

    I do agree that Govt must honor the judgment of Honorable Madras High Court and verdict of Honorable Supreme Court. This will save valuable time of not only pensioners but also of Govt.

THE SENIOR CITIZENS WHO ARE IN GOVERNANCE HAVE LOT OF DISRESPECT TOWARDS SENIOR CITIZENS IN “PENIONERS” SEGMENT, from either central government or banking industry.

    I fail to understand that once the matter relating to grant of notional increment has been settled by law i.e.the verdict of hon,ble Madras High Court as well as orders of various CATs & finely the Supreme Court of India rejecting the appeal filed by the central govt,then why the central govt is denying for the legitimate benefit to the pensioners retired on completion of twelve months service time & again not honoring the court,s orders. Their intentions do not seem to be fair rather malafide , because the annual increment is earned by duty which is the cardinal principle & once the same is earned the same cannot be denied on mere technical grounds or pleas. In the instant case the majority verdicts are in favour of pensioners then why the Govt. is adharing to exceptional comments of rare orders which do not seem to be just & adequate on the subject.
