J.S.KHEHAR, J. (Oral)
The petitioners were inducted into the service of the respondents as Anganwari Workers on a fixed honorarium. Since, the honorarium was not paid to the petitioners, they have approached this Court by filing the instant writ petition.
Out of 45 petitioners, 3 petitioners have already been paid their honorarium, and for the remaining petitioners, the respondents have brought cheques, so as to discharge the liability of honorarium payable to remaining 42 petitioners. 42 separate cheques have been handed over by learned counsel for the respondents to learned counsel for the petitioners in Court today. The aforesaid cheques have been accepted as payment in lieu of the honorarium payable to the petitioners. Learned counsel for the petitioners, however, states that liberty be granted to the petitioners to claim any further amount that may be due to them, in CWP No.7506 of 2004 
case the payment made in Court today is inadequate, by filing civil suits.
In view of the above, the instant writ petition is disposed off with liberty to the petitioners to seek any further amount that may be due to them from the respondents, by filing the civil suits, in case the amount paid by the respondents is found inadequate.
