No Special Allowances for Judges in North-East High Courts, Says Law Ministry

The Union Law Ministry has told the Gauhati High Court that Judges posted in the four high courts in the northeast are not entitled to a special monetary allowance extended to officers of all-India services posted in the region.

The ministry cited the seventh pay commission award, where a recommendation to extend the special allowance to other services was not accepted by the government. "The proposal for grant of additional monetary incentive allowance to judges of high courts of northeastern states has not been agreed to," the department of justice in the law ministry informed the registrar general of Gauhati HC.

The judges of High Courts in the northeast had demanded a special allowance at the rate of 25 per cent of their basic salary in addition to other perks, as granted to officers of all-India services to motivate them for a "longer period".

The working strength of the HCs of Gauhati, Meghalaya, Manipur and Tripura is 24 against an approved strength of 37. [Source: TOI]
