While inviting your kind attention on the subject matter wherein it was requested many times for early issue of orders for implementation of the Judgment of Hon’ble Supreme Court.
A kind reference is also invited to the Directorate Memo No 23-8/97/PE-1(PCC) dated 03 July 1998 by which pay scale of Postmen and Mail Guard have been revised from pay scale Rs 2750-70-3800-75-4400 to Rs 3050-75-3950-80-4590 wef 10.10.1997. All India Postal Employees Union filed SLP No 6394/2007 before Hon’ble Supreme Court which was converted into Civil Appeal No 2010 /2009 demanding grant of upgraded pay scale of Rs 3050-4590 from 01.01.1996 instead of 10.10.1997 after dismissal of the matter before Hon’ble CAT PB New Delhi and Hon’ble Delhi High Court. This has the reference to the subject matter and the judgment was given on 07th May 2015 by the Hon’ble Supreme Court entitling monetary benefits effective from 01.01.1996 instead of 10.10.1997.
However after protracted correspondence for many years, the implementation order relating to Supreme Court Judgment was issued by your office vide letter No 2-1/ 2007-PCC dated 23rdMay 2018 to all concerned authorities for suitable action. In this connection, it is mentioned that implementation order are unnecessary being delayed at lower level by wrong interpretation causing mental agony and harassment to the affected members. In many divisions, in almost all the circles, the process of implementation is either almost stagnant or at snail placed.
The matter has already been over delayed and many beneficiaries of affecting this order would have been expired and their family pensioners are also awaiting the monetary benefits but further delayed action would also hurt them in the same way.
We would also urge upon you to intervene personally and direct the authorities by issuing special strict instructions with dead line so that left over beneficiaries could reap the benefits of long struggle of the above order assuring early action in this regard.
A line of reply as early as possible for the action being taken in this regard will be highly appreciated and requested for an acknowledgement of this communication.
