THE SYMBOL OF RESISTANCE AND FREEDOM - NELSON MANDELA NO MORE - AIPAEA PAYS ITS HOMAGE TO THIS GREAT SON OF AFRICA
"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."

ORDER OF THE HON' HIGH COURT DISMISSING THE APPEAL FILED BY THE DOP AGAINST THE JUDGMENT BY THE HON' PRINCIPAL CAT, DELHI ON THE STEPPING UP OF PAY IN ACP IN THE CASE FILED BY THE AIPAEA
IN THE HIGH COURT OF DELHI AT NEW DELHI
UNION OF INDIA and ANR. ..... Petitioners
Represented by: Mr.S.M.Zulfiqar Alam, Advocate
ALL INDIA POSTAL ACCOUNTS
EMPLOYEES and ANR ..... Respondents
Represented by: Mr.B.K.Berera, Advocate
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE PRADEEP NANDRAJOG
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE V. KAMESWAR RAO
O R D E R
Since counsel as above appears for the caveator/respondent, the
caveat stands discharged.
1. Having heard learned counsel for the parties, in view of the law
declared by the Supreme Court in the batch of appeals, lead matter being
CA No.3250/206 Commissioner and Secretary to Government of Haryana and Ors.
Vs. Ram Swaroop Ganda and Ors., copy whereof has been annexed at pages 121
to 136 of the writ petition, we find no merit in the writ petition for
W.P.(C) 7421/2013 page 1 of
the reason the Supreme Court has categorically held that while granting
upgradation as per the ACP scales, if a senior starts receiving salary
less than the junior, the salary of the senior has to be stepped up.
2. Relevant facts are, as noted by the Tribunal, that in the
Department of Posts, Lower Division Clerks were entitled to be promoted
as Junior Accountant and therefrom to Senior Accountant. Those who were
appointed as LDCs and earned two promotions i.e. to the post of Junior
Accountant and Senior Accountant were not entitled to the benefit of ACP
scheme which envisaged a financial upgradation after 12 years? service if
no promotion was earned and a second financial upgradation if within the
next 12 years no further promotion was earned. The result was persons
appointed as Junior Accountants by direct recruitment after those who
were promoted to said post from the post of LDC, earned one promotion to
the post of Senior Accountant. They were granted the ACP benefit after
12 years? service. The result was that LDCs who were senior as Junior
Accountants as also as Senior Accountants stagnated at the pay scale of
Senior Accountant. Those who were appointed as Junior Accountant and
were promoted thereafter as Senior Accountant started receiving the next
higher pay scale.
3. The Tribunal has correctly opined that the principle of stepping up
of pay would be applicable.
4. There is a complete parity with the law declared by the Supreme
Court in Ram Swaroop Ganda?s case (supra).
5. The writ petition is dismissed in limine.
6. No costs.
W.P.(C) 7421/2013 page 2 of 3
Dismissed as infructuous.
