Supreme Court asks states to pay 60% arrears within 3 months to judicial officers

The Supreme Court today directed all state governments to make payments of arrears of judicial officers of subordinate courts in view of implementation of increased pay scales for them.

A Speacial Bench of Chief Justice S H Kapadia and Justices Aftab Alam and K S Radhakrishnan said state governments will have to pay 60 per cent of the arrears within three months while the remaining would be disbursed within nine months.

The special Bench, which was set up last week to hear the matters relating to infrastructure of subordinate courts, in its next hearing would examine the issue of pension for judicial officers.

The hike in pay scales is to be implemented with effect from January 2006 as per the recommendations of apex court-appointed committee which had submitted its report in July 2009.

CORAM :
HON'BLE THE CHIEF JUSTICE

HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE K.S. RADHAKRISHNAN

UPON hearing counsel the Court made the following
O R D E R

In continuation of our earlier Orders, we have examined the charts submitted by learned Amicus Curiae on Allowances [like, Sumptuary allowance, Medical Allowance, Hill Area/Remote Area
Allowance, Robe Allowance and Domestic Help Allowance]. The chart indicates the burden on each of the States on account of the Allowances being sanctioned from 1st January, 2006. As far as pay scales are concerned, the States have agreed to implement the recommendations of Justice Padmanabhan Committee. The Allowances thereon constitute a miniscule amount, as indicated in the chart placed by learned Amicus Curiae.
In the circumstances, we hereby accept the Report of Justice Padmanabhan Committee in toto as far as Allowances are concerned. The arrears will be paid from 1st January, 2006. Many of the States
appearing before us have also accepted the recommendations of Justice Padmanabhan Committee as far as Allowances are concerned. Accordingly, we direct the States to implement Justice Padmanabhan
Committee Report on the above Allowances with immediate effect. The arrears will be paid according to the formula suggested by justice
Padmanabhan Committee. Accordingly, sixty per cent of the arrears will be paid within three months and remaining forty per cent will be paid within nine months thereafter.
