CAT dismisses 22 rly employees’ plea for Group B status

The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), Chandigarh, today dismissed the application of 22 employees of The Railways, who were seeking the Group-B status instead of C in their services.

The Indian Railways Technical Supervisor Association and its members filed the case with CAT in 2014. The complaint said a recommendation regarding their Status B was accepted by the Central Government and orders were issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT). But, they were denied the same and were kept in Group C only. Most of the applicants are posted in Kapurthala.

However, the general secretary of the association had already challenged this in Principal Bench and the application was dismissed. Also, the Madras Bench of the Tribunal had dismissed the case earlier.
In its order, CAT said, “We find no justification for grant of Group-B status to the applicants.

The application is a gross abuse of process of law because the matter had already attained finality with the order dated February 21, 1992. The application is completely devoid of substance and is accordingly dismissed. No costs.”
