The writ petition is filed with the following prayers:-
"(i) To issue a writ of certiorari or other appropriate writ or order quashing Ext.P13 as unjust, illegal and unconstitutional. (ii) To issue a writ of mandamus directing the 1st respondent to take a decision in Ext.P10 untrammelled by the observations in Ext.P13. (iii) To declare that the petitioner is entitled for the same rate of pay and other service benefits which he has been paid after the promulgation of GO because the work done by him before and after the said GO is of same nature and same standard and of same responsibility."
2. The main contention of the petitioner is that for the only reason of delay in processing the claim for the scale of pay for the same work done by the vocational lecturers, the petitioner should not have been denied the scale of pay from the date he discharged the duties. The 2nd respondent in Ext.P13 impugned order has taken a stand that such policy WPC NO.39284/03 Page numbers matters are to be decided by the Government. Inviting reference to Ext.P14 judgment of the Supreme Court, it is submitted that the petitioner has to be given pay parity. There is no counter affidavit.

Thereafter the 1st respondent will consider the matter adverting to the contentions taken by the petitioner and pass appropriate orders thereon in accordance with law, within another four months.
