Yesterday, 23-1-2019, the Shimla Bench of CAT Chandigarh has given a good judgement. It says DCRG, Leave encashment, Commutation etc should be granted based on revised pay with 78.2% IDA with effect from 1-1-2007. With regard to pay arrears from 1-1-2007 up to the date of retirement, the Judgement is disappointing. We hope that the concerned pensioners who approached the court will go for further remedial action.
Court has allowed the arrears of Retrial Benefits as prayed that is Commutation, DCRG, and leave encashment as per revised notional pay.
✔For pay arrears from 1-1-07 to 9-6-13 the court observed that if it is paid to serving employees then it should also be paid.
✔For pension arrears from date of retirement to 9-6-13 has not specifically mentioned by the court as perhaps it was not mentioned in the prayer itself.
