Punjab Haryana High Court major relief that the government cannot discontinue increase citing retirement

Apr10,2024 | Surinder Dalla |

After the directions of the Punjab Haryana High Court, now the government cannot deny the benefit of annual increment on one date to the employees who have completed one year of service on the last date of the month of retirement. The division bench of the High Court has issued these orders rejecting the appeal of the Punjab government against the orders of the single bench. If on the date of retirement of a Government servant one year has elapsed since his last increment, the Punjab Government shall deprive the employee of the benefit due on that date. The Government considers him retired on the last day of the month and on the first of the following month he is considered retired and deprived of the benefit of increment. After the instructions of the Punjab Haryana High Court, now the government cannot refuse to give the benefit of annual increment on one date to the employees who have completed one year of service on the last date of the month of retirement. The division bench of the High Court has issued these orders rejecting the appeal of the Punjab government against the orders of the single bench. Malghar Singh, a resident of Mohali, filed a petition in the single bench of the High Court through advocate Gitanjali Chhabra and said that if one year of the last increment is completed on the date of retirement of a government employee, then the Punjab government will pay the outstanding amount on the same date. The Government considers him retired on the last day of the month and on the first of the following month he is considered retired and deprived of the benefit of increment. The employee is entitled to HC from the first date
The petitioner stated that he gets the benefit of pay increment throughout his service period and when the time of retirement comes he is denied increment on one day's application. A single bench of the High Court had ordered the Punjab government that if one year has elapsed since the date of retirement from his last increment, the employee is entitled to the annual increment which was due on the earlier date. The increase due to the order of the High Court has a direct impact on the retirement benefits of the employees. In 2022, the Punjab government filed an appeal in the division bench against this decision of the single bench. On Tuesday, the High Court rejected the appeal of the Punjab government and accepted the order of the single bench.
