Pay 5th and 6th Pay Commissions salaries to teachers- Delhi High Court orders unaided schools

Delhi High Court (Valmiki J. Mehta J.) today provided relief to as many as 48 teaching and non-teaching employees by directing Arya Vidya Mandir and C.L. Bhalla Dayanand Model School to pay to their employees arrears of salaries in terms of 5th and 6th Pay Commissions within 3 months, failing which, the schools have also to pay 9% interest. These directions came on the petitions filed by the employees of these schools through Adv. Ashok Agarwal. Mr. Ashok Agarwal appearing for the teaching and non-teaching staff argued that by not paying due salaries and other benefits to the employees, the unaided private schools are exploiting them. Rejecting the plea of financial constraints raised by unaided schools Justice Valmiki J Mehta held that financial constraints cannot be held as valid ground for unaided private schools to deny salaries, DA, ACP and MACP benefits due to their employees under 5th and 6th Pay Commissions. Ashok Agarwal, Advocate M-09811101923 19.07.2013
