Govt of NCT of Delhi & ANR vs Somvir Rana[TGT] & ORS
UPON hearing the counsel the Court made the following
We find that there are several matters in which the aggrieved employees have been going to the Tribunal, then to the High Court and thereafter those matters are brought before this Court at the instance of the Union of India/NCI of Delhi.
Once the question, in principle, has been settled, it is only appropriate on the part of the Government of India to issue a Circular so that it will save the time of the Court and the Administrative Departments apart from avoiding unnecessary and avoidable expenditure.
The present situation is that the stepping up is available only to those who have approached the Court. But since the issue has otherwise become final, we direct the Government of India to immediately look into the matter and issue appropriate orders for granting the pay-scale so that people need not unnecessarily travel either to the Tribunal or the High Court or this Court.
With the above observations and directions. the special leave petitions are dismissed.
Pending application(s), if any, shall stand disposed of.
