Sub: Sharing of order dated l 1.10.2018 of Hon’ble CAT/PB/Delhi in O.A. No 2230/2014 filed by Shri Partha Protim Mukhopadhyay & Ors Vs UOl & Ors.
“5. The recommendations of the 6m CPC became enforceable w.e.f. 01.01.2006. The formula evolved by the 6th CPC is that the pay scale of an employee shall be revised by multiplying the basic pay of the employee as on 01.01.2006 with the factor 1.86. This is fact, is the ratio laid down by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in a batch of civil appeals. The plea of the applicant is that they have been wrongly placed in the pay scale of Rs. 7450-11500 instead of Rs. 7500- 12000.
- 6. The grievance is referable to the fixation of pay scales on the basis of 5th CPC recommendations. That in turn, became enforceable in the year 1996. The mistake, if at all, as regards fixation of pay scales has crept in the year 1996. There is nothing on record to disclose that the applicant has ever raised this contention either after the recommendations of the 5th CPC were implemented or before the Anomalies Committee constituted soon after the report of the 6th CPC.
- 7. At this length of time, the grievance even if genuine, cannot be redressed. The OA is accordingly dismissed.“
