basis. One Shri P. Rosi Reddy, Supdt, Central Excise &
Customs Hyderabad (whose name is appearing at serial
no. 3560 of all India seniority list of Superintendent of Central
Excise & Customs Group-B issued as on 31.12.1992 by
CBEC) joined as Dy.S.P. in CBI on deputation basis as per
the notification and after joining as Dy.S.P. CBI, his pay
was fixed at Rs. 2575/- with effect from 15.2.91 in the
scale of Rs.2200-75-2800-EB-IOO-4000/-.
S.P. of CBI filed one O.A. before the Hon'ble CAT,
Principal Bench, New Delhi for enhancement of their pay
scale and the Hon'ble CAT passed one interim order and
the Central Govt. by accepting above interlocutory order
enhanced the pay scale of Dy. S.P., CBI from Rs.2000-
3500/- to Rs.2200-4000/-. However, in the final judgment the Hon'ble CAT did not approve such enhancement of pay scale and directed to maintain the pay of Dy.S.P./CBI at Rs.2000-3500/-. After the judgment has been passed by the Hon'ble CAT, the Central Govt., did not follow the observation passed in the judgment and continued to pay the higher scale of pay of Rs.2200-4000/- under its notification dated 08.02.96. Central Govt. did not take any step for maintaining the parity in the pay scale of Supdt. Central Excise and Customs as well as Dy. Central Intelligence Officer/IB and allowed the disruption in the parity resulting in various grievances and agitations by the concerned officers in the Department of Central Excise and Customs as well as IB. After the implementation of the 5th. CPC, the Central Govt. fixed replacement scale of Rs.8000/-Rs. 13,500/- for Dy.S.P. of Police in CBI. However, to retain the parity the scale of pay of Dy. Central Intelligence Officer in IB was fixed in the above higher scale of pay of Rs. 8000-13,500/- but the same scale was not allowed to the Supdt. Central Excise and Customs and they were given replacement scale of pay Rs. 6500-10,500/-.
the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission, the grade pay of Superintendent of Central Excise and Customs has been fixed to Rs. 4800- in PB-2 and grade pay of Rs. 5400/- in PB - 2 for those Supdts who have completed more than 4 years w.e.f. 01.01.2006.
the appropriate authorities came to the conclusion that
the higher scale of pay has to be granted to remove the
disparity then there is no reason for allowing two different
dates to give effect and the higher scale of pay should be given from the same date as in the case of categories of employees relating to which it is proposed to remove the disparity.
