Framing of Rules for URC Employees
The Unit Run Canteen employees are getting paid as per the rules regulating the terms and conditions of the services of the civilian employees of the URCs, issued by Army Headquarters in April 2003. These rules were made as per the directions of Hon`ble Supreme Court.
It has been held by the Hon`ble Supreme Court in its order dated 28-4-2009, in the case of R.R. Pillai Vs the commanding officer HQ SAC(U), that employees of the URC are not government servant.
Unit Run Canteens (URCs) employees are not Government employees, hence recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission are not applicable to them.
