Dated this the 7th day of August, 2007
J U D G M E N T
Petitioner is stated to be working as Lecturer in Economics in St. Pius X College, Rajapuram in Kasargod District. He had joined the service on January 1, 1997 in the pay scale of Rs.8000-275-13500.
2. It is admitted by the petitioner that his pay was fixed at Rs.9,100/- at the time of appointment. It is not in dispute that petitioner was holding Phd. Degree in the discipline concerned. It is also beyond controversy that appointment of the petitioner was approved by the University
3. Grievance of the petitioner is that his pay is not being fixed as provided under Rule 28A of Part I KSR. It is pointed out by the learned counsel that in several similar circumstances, Rule 28A was made applicable and benefits of pay revision were given. Though petitioner has sought to quash Clause 8 of Ext.P1 order of the Government, learned counsel submits that petitioner will be satisfied if an appropriate direction is issued to respondent WPC NO.6928/06 Page numbers No.1 to take a decision on Ext.P4 representation. In that view of the matter, I do not propose to deal with the merit of any of the contentions raised by the petitioner. It is made clear that it will be open to respondent No.1 to take a decision in the matter strictly on its merit and in accordance with law, as expeditiously as possible, at any rate, within three months from the date of receipt of a copy of this judgment. Respondent No.1 shall ensure that petitioner is afforded sufficient opportunity to be heard before any decision is taken in the matter. It will be open to the petitioner to produce all relevant records in support of his plea before respondent No.1 at the time of hearing. The writ petition is disposed of as above.
