Proceedings in Hon. PB CAT in our contempt petition / Pension revision case:
Dear Sir, Please note that the Contempt Petitions filed in the captioned matters were registered as CP No. 301/2024 & CP No. 302/2024, and listed today as Items No. 2 & 3 before the bench comprising Hon'ble member Mr. Tarun Shridhar & Mrs. Pratima K Gupta at the Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench in Court No. 3. The Contempt Petition in the connected matter was listed as Item No. 1.
Proxy Counsel appearing for the Respondent in Item No. 3 sought an adjournment which was denied by the Ld. Tribunal since no adjournments were being allowed in Contempt Petitions. Counsel appearing for the Contemnors apprised the Ld. Tribunal regarding the Writ Petitions preferred by the UOI in the Delhi High Court assailing the Order dated 20.09.2023 (order sought to be implemented) and requested that the Contempt Petitions be notified to a date after 12.07.2024, i.e. the date in the Writ Petitions. However, the Ld. Tribunal observed that the Order dated 05.04.2024 of the Delhi High Court in the Writ Petitions does not restrain the Ld. Tribunal to proceed with any contempt proceedings and no notice has been issued. In view of the same, the Ld. Tribunal has directed the Contemnors to file their affidavit of compliance within 4 weeks.
Ms. Puri, appearing for the Applicants in Item No. 2 & 3, requested for a short date. However, the Ld. Tribunal fixed the matter for 03.07.2024, immediately after the re-opening of the Tribunal post the summer vacation, since 4 weeks had been given for filing the compliance affidavit and it would take an additional week for the Registry to place the same on record, which would not be possible prior to the commencement of the court vacation in June.
In case of any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Warm Regards,
