  1. As per Supreme Court of India RECORD OF PROCEEDINGS Diary No(s). 23663/2017, for similarly placed govt servants need not file the cases to implement the same in their favour.
    “Once the question, in principle, has been settled, it is only
    appropriate on the part of the Government of India to issue a Circular so that it will save the time of the Court and the Administrative Departments apart from avoiding unnecessary and avoidable expenditure.
    The present situation is that the stepping up is available only to those who have approached the Court.
    But since the issue has otherwise become final, we direct the Government of India to immediately look into the matter and issue appropriate orders for granting the pay-scale so that people need not unnecessarily travel either to the Tribunal or the High Court or this Court.”

Hence, this writ petition.It is not in dispute that the petitioner served between 01.04.2009 and 31.03.2010 and hence, he sought for increment for the service rendered and the same cannot be denied. The aforesaid judgment also took the same view.
