Implementation of Judicial Orders in Public Service: A Call for Uniformity


In the realm of public service, adherence to judicial orders stands as a cornerstone for fostering trust and fairness among employees. The recent directive by the Hon'ble Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) in New Delhi, encapsulated in its judgment dated 03.03.2023 in OA No. 4474/2018, bears testament to this principle. The case, initiated by Shri Sanjeev Kumar and others from the Postal & RMS Account cadre, has significant implications for similar cases across the country.


In response to the CAT's directive, the Directorate has extended its approval to implement the judgment, emphasizing its non-precedent status for future cases. However, a crucial aspect highlighted in the CAT's order warrants attention – the principle of parity. Referring to established legal precedents, the CAT underscores the obligation to extend similar benefits to those in analogous situations, even if they haven't pursued legal recourse.


This raises pertinent questions regarding the uniform application of judicial orders across different administrative circles. While the directive from the Directorate sets a precedent within its jurisdiction, the broader implication of the CAT's principle of parity necessitates a holistic approach.


In light of this, it becomes imperative for the Director General Posts to issue comprehensive guidelines to all circles, emphasizing the spirit of the CAT's order. By ensuring consistency in the interpretation and application of judicial directives, the risk of prolonged litigations can be mitigated, fostering a culture of equity and transparency within the organization.


Furthermore, it's crucial for administrative authorities to recognize the broader implications of individual judicial orders. While each case may have its unique circumstances, the underlying principles of fairness and equal treatment must remain sacrosanct.


By embracing a proactive approach towards the implementation of judicial directives, public service organizations can not only mitigate legal risks but also uphold the principles of justice and equity upon which they are founded.


In conclusion, the case of Shri Sanjeev Kumar and others serves as a reminder of the pivotal role of judicial orders in shaping organizational policies and practices. Through diligent adherence to legal mandates and a commitment to fairness, public service entities can navigate complex legal landscapes while fostering an environment conducive to employee welfare and organizational harmony.
