I m Central Govt servant posted at Kanpur. In matter of Pay Stepping up my peer group applied in CAT Principal Bench N Delhi(I was not party in that case). I had separately applied to my office for stepping up and the matter is exactly similar as was filed in Principal Bench. My office has declined my request on flimsy grounds.
Due to weak arguments from petitioner, Principal Bench awarded judgement in favor of Union of India. The peer group then approached Delhi High Court and the matter is pending for hearing in July.
I m still sure to have merit in my case and chances of winning. I want to know whether I can approach CAT allbad in such circumstances or should I go somwhere else. Further if at all my case is admitted at CAT Allahabad, then can CAT Alld pass judgement in my favor(of course after looking the merit of the case) knowing the fact about the judgement of Principal Bench N Delhi i n favor of UoI?
