Friends, we salute to Shri M.Subramanyam, Supdt. of Chennai ( Ex Gen. Secretary of Inspectors Association
branch)for his relentless effort to fight for grade pay Rs. 5400 in High Court of Chennai. Hon’ble High Court has finally allowed his Writ Petition no. 13225/2010 and directed the Revenue Secretary to extend the benefit of grade pay of Rs.5400 to ACP Inspectors after completing four years in grade pay of Rs.4800/-. Salem
While deciding the WP no. 13225/2010, Hon'ble Court held that " In fact, the Government of India having accepted the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission ,issued a resolution dated 29.08.2008 granting grade pay of Rs.5400/- to the Group B Officers in pay band 2 on non-functional basis after four years of regular service in the grade pay of Rs. 4800/- in pay band 2. Therefore,denial of the same benefit to the petitioner based on the clarification issued by the under Secretary to the Government was contrary to the above said clarification and without amending the rules of the revised pay scale, such decision cannot be taken. Therefore we are inclined to interfere with the order of the Tribunal.
Accordingly, the writ petition is allowed setting aside the order of the Tribunal, dated 19.04.2010 passed in O.A. No.167 of 2009.The respondents are directed to extend the benefit of grade pay of Rs.5400/- to the petitioner from 01.01.2008 as per the resolution dated 29.08.2008. No costs".
