Delhi High Court in its decision dated 23.09.2013 in W.P.(C)237/2013 in case of Deepika Jain vs Rukmini Devi Public School ordered the school to make payment to Deepika Jain in terms of 6th pay commission for the period from 1.1.2006 to 11.10.2007. The Court held "petitioner will be entitled to not only to arrears which would be payable to her but also the enhancement of salary in terms of the 6th Pay Commission Report for the period from 1.1.2006 to 11.10.2007 as prayed for in the writ petition."
