Hon’ble CAT, Cuttack Bench ( O A No. 1196 of 2004 and O A No. 1213 to 1221 of 2004 ) uphold the order of Hon’ble CAT, Madras Bench (O A No. 679 of 2003)
Postal Directorate directs Chief PMG, Odisha Circle for implementation vide its letter No. 93-13/2012-SPB-II, dated 23rdJanuary, 2015
Odisha Circle implemented the order vide its Memo No. ST/26-15/2013, dated 04.02.2015
The Hon’ble CAT, Madras Bench in its order dated 19.03.2004 passed in O A No. 679 of 2003 (K Perumal and M Ramamswamy vrs. D G, Department of Posts and Other) observed, “.... action of the respondents is totally illegal and is incorrect. They cannot change the nomenclature, viz. ‘promotions’ made already to that of ‘financial up-gradations’ and deny the consequential benefits ....... In the matters relating to seniority, settled issues should not be disturbed/disorted after a long laps of time ..... the contention of the respondents that the promotions given earlier are to be construed only as financial up-gradations in our considered view cannot be accepted as the same is unreasonable and such an argument goes against the letter and spirit of the communications issued by the respondents themselves......”
The Hon’ble CAT, Cuttack Bench in its order dated 23.07.2008 passed in O A No. 1196 of 2004 and O A No. 1213 to 1221 of 2004 filed by Brahmananda Lenka and others directed the respondents to consider the case of the Applicants within a period of 90 days for grant of consequential benefits with promotion to next higher grade, namely HSG-II and HSG-I in the light of the decision of the Madras Bench of the tribunal which has been confirmed by the Hon’ble High Court of Madras.
The Order dated 23.07.2008 of Hon’ble CAT, Cuttack was subsequently upheld by the Hon’ble High Court of Odisha vide its Order dated 17.01.2012 which was examined by the Department in consultation with the Department of Personnel & Training and Department of Legal Affairs, Ministry of Law and Justice and finally it has been decided to implement the same in respect of the applicants of the above O A only.
Subsequently, the Postal Directorate, vide its letter No. 93-13/2012-SPB-II, dated 23rd January, 2015 directed the Chief Postmaster General, Odisha Circle to implement the above CAT’s order as specific to the applicants of the O A.
Accordingly, Circle Office, Bhubaneswar vide its Memo No. ST/26-15/2013, dated 04.02.2015 promoted 5 officials (the applicants) notionally to LSG, HSG-II and HSG-I and allotted 3 officials to Berhampur Region and 2 officials to Samablpur Region.
