Some more important news related to Supreme Court DA case, please check to avoid doubt

WB DA Case: West Bengal government employees are currently getting Dearness Allowance (DA) at the rate of 6 percent. However, payment of Dearness Allowance (DA) at the central rate has been a long-standing demand of all government employees and teachers. The matter of Dearness Allowance (DA) dues has already reached the Supreme Court. Many important news related to this case came to light in the Supreme Court.

Shyamal Kumar Mitra, President of the Confederation of State Government Employees Central Committee, has given some important information regarding the Dearness Allowance Case (WB DA Case) pending in the Supreme Court.

Firstly, the senior lawyer in the case, Vikas Ranjan Bhattacharya, was physically unwell. One issue was whether he would be able to attend the hearing of the case on November 3. In this regard, Shyamal Babu said that the physical condition of Vikas Babu is now stable, he will participate in the hearing of the case online from Kolkata.

To avoid doubt, he also clarified one more thing. Many people feel that the Supreme Court’s victory in this expensive allowance case will only benefit West Bengal government employees. Teachers of government sponsored schools will not benefit from this matter. However, he made it clear.

Since teachers cannot appear in SAT (State Administrative Tribunal), only government employees filed this case in SAT. However, it was mentioned that the suit is for the outstanding salaries of all those who are getting salaries as per ROPA 2009. Therefore, teachers from all government aided schools of West Bengal are being included in it.

However, the state government said in its affidavit in the Supreme Court that there are a total of three lakh twenty thousand employees. Here the numbers were calculated excluding teaching staff. However, if the Supreme Court’s Maharaghbhata judgment is only for government employees in West Bengal, teachers and education staff can file separate cases.
