 Relief for Government Employees: 7th Pay Commission Arrears Set to Be Cleared, High Court Directs Action

-By ArdorComm News Network

In a significant development, former and current government employees are set to receive relief regarding their pending 7th Pay Commission arrears. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has assured the Delhi High Court of its commitment to expedite the clearance of these arrears, providing a ray of hope for affected individuals.

During the court proceedings, representatives from the MCD affirmed their dedication to resolving the issue of outstanding arrears related to the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. It was revealed that an amount of approximately Rs. 738 crore, referred to as “basic tax assignment,” is anticipated from the Delhi government, which will facilitate the prompt disbursement of arrears to the employees.

Furthermore, the MCD has pledged to address the retirement benefits of former employees within a timeframe of 12 weeks. Additionally, the corporation has undertaken to ensure timely payment of salaries and pensions for both current and former employees in the future.

The High Court bench, chaired by Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Manmeet Pritam Singh Arora, emphasized the importance of fulfilling these commitments. It directed the Delhi government to release the Rs. 738 crore 7th CPC arrears within a stringent timeframe of just 10 working days.

Failure to adhere to these commitments could lead to contempt proceedings against the MCD Commissioner, as emphasized by the court. To monitor progress closely, the case has been scheduled for compliance review on July 23, 2024.

While the Delhi government has assured the court that necessary paperwork is underway for the payment process, it has requested an extension until April 25 to complete the formalities.

The case underscores the Delhi High Court’s proactive stance in addressing delayed salary and pension payments under the 7th Pay Commission, as well as outstanding arrears. The court’s intervention reflects its commitment to safeguarding the rights and welfare of government employees affected by these delays.
