CORAM:- HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE JASBIR SINGH
Present:- Shri Gaurav Mohunta, Advocate for the appellants.
Respondent- plaintiff filed a suit for declaration to the effect that he be declared entitled to get his salary in the pay-scale of Rs.2000- 3200/- at basic pay of Rs.2450/- per month. He also claimed that he was entitled to get his salary fixed in the new pay-scale of Rs.5500-10500/- and that the order dated 29.1.2000 vide which step-up of pay was withdrawn be declared null and void. His suit was decreed. Appellants failed in appeal.
It is apparent from the records and has also been noticed by both the Courts below that pay of the respondent was stepped up in the month of October, 1996. Thereafter, vide order under challenge, without issuing any notice to him, the same was withdrawn on 29.1.2000. Courts below have further held that the appellants- defendants were not justified in withholding increments to be granted to the respondent from April, 1997. It has also been found as a matter of fact that in Gradation List, name of the respondent figures at Sr. No.30 whereas names of Fakir Chand Gupta and Kali Ram figures at Sr. No.238 and 264. By noticing that it has been R.S.A. No.4474 of 2005 
said that the respondent was senior to them and is entitled to get salary equal to them.
In view of reasons given by the appellate Court below in para No.10 of judgment dated 22.9.2005, no case is made out for interference in pure findings of fact.
