The First case OA 655/2010 was field in CAT PB by S-29( Railway officers who are having more than 33 years of service) association pleading for Modified parity to pre-2006 pensioners.
Another three set of petitions were filed by others pleading for full parity with post 2006 pensioners including 50% pension to less than 33 years of service in CAT PB & cases numbered OA/3079/2009,OA 0306/2010,OA 0507/2010.
The CAT PB clubbed all the three cases together & heard the argument. The judgement was also given together in all these four cases.
The Govt filed appeal in DHC against the verdict of CAT PB & again all these four cases Numbered WP(C) 1535(Modified parity only), 2348-2350(Full parity & 50%) were clubbed & heard by DHC.The judgements were given together but under respective cases.
Here Govt filed a curative petition in SC together & could not succeed.
Here after the Govt splitted the cases & filed an SLP in SC numbered SLP (C) 23055/2013 only against WP(C) 1535 (OA 655/2010 for modified parity only) & the SC dismissed the SLP. Consequently the Govt paid the amount to Members of the petitioners only.
After this The Govt filed SLP in SC against the verdict of DHC in rest of the 3 cases 2348-2350 & the cases numbered by SC as SLP(C) 36148-36150(Full parity & 50%) were heard together & dismissed on 17/03/2015 & ordered to pay the arrears w.e.f.01/01/2006 with in 4 months .The deadline for compliance of this judgement has expired on 17/07/2015.The petitioners of SLP 36148-50 have to approach the SC for contempt of court for non-implementation of court order.The recent Circular dated 30/07/2015 issued by DOPPW is only extending the applicability of judgement in OA 655/2010 to applicants other than petitioners in the above case.Hence this Circular have no effect on the pre2006 pensioners who are having less than 33 years of service.
