Pay Hike For High Court Staff : Supreme Court Requests Tripura HC To Defer Contempt Proceedings Against State

The Supreme Court on 22/07/2022 issued notice on a special leave petition filed by the State of Tripura challenging an interim order passed by the Tripura High Court which directed the state government to enhance the salary of the staff of the High Court as per the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission with effect from January 1, 2006.

In the order passed in December 2021, the High Court also directed the State to pay the salary arrears as well in three monthly instalments starting from January 2022. Later, the High Court initiated suo motu contempt proceedings against the State Government for not implementing the directions.

A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and AS Bopanna, while issuing notice returnable within 3 weeks on the State's SLP, requested the High Court to defer the contempt proceedings in the meantime.
