OA 1165/2010

This OA relates to Stenographers Grade C /Court Masters, who are working in the Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, seeking benefits of re-fixation of pay in the scale of Rs.6500-10500 at par with their counterparts in CSS/CSSS w.e.f. 15.9.2006 and re-calculation of arrears thereof. It is also prayed that the applicants are entitled to the grade pay of Rs.4600/- w.e.f. 1.1.2006 with arrears at par with their counterparts in CSS/CSSS.
2. We find that historical parity of Central Administrative Tribunal staff in respect of Private Secretaries has already been laid at rest on implementation of our directions by the respondents in S. R. Dheer & others v. Union of India & others (OA-164/2009) decided on 19.2.2009, which, in all fours, covers the issue raised by the applicants in the present OA.

3. At this stage, we find that the claim of the applicants instead of being turned down by the Department of Personnel & Training has been kept in abeyance by an order dated 15.5.2007 on the basis of the recommendations of 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC).

4. In these circumstances, we dispose of this OA with a direction to the respondents to treat the present OA as a representation on behalf of the applicants and decide the reliefs prayed for in this OA in the background of historical parity of Central Administrative Tribunal staff with their counterparts in CSS/CSSS, by passing a reasoned and speaking order within a period of two months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order.
Let a copy of the OA be issued to the respondents along with this order.
