Dated this the 27th day of March, 2012

JUDGMENT

Thottathil B.Radhakrishnan, J.

The short issue is whether the respondents ,who are Railway employees, are entitled to arrear of pay on revision of scales with effect from 1.1.1996. They were refused such benefit till 18.2.2003 as per Annexure-A3.

That has been interfered with by the Tribunal. We find no rationale to refuse relief to the Railway employees particularly when such relief has been granted to the employees of the other sector covered by the Pay Commission Order.

We find no jurisdictional error or legal infirmity to say that there is any injustice against the establishment on the basis of the impugned order. No ground made out for interference under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India.

The writ petition fails and accordingly it is dismissed. No costs.
