PhD increment (2 additional), Award & Convocation
July 2, 2012 at 5:33 am #67642
As per G.O. No. 37-SE/ES(S)/5P-37/2010 dated 05/01/2012, additional 2 increments is awarded to the phD holder having convocation date prior to 18.08.2005 (i.e. before the publication of Control of Expenditure Act). So, as per the said G.O. you will not get the benefit.
However, due to the non-availability of Upacharya (Prime Minister), you should not suffer. So, if you file a petition regarding this you might be considered. So, let the lawyer friends of this forum speak about this and the procedure of doing so, if feasible.July 5, 2012 at 6:22 pm #73081
Hi, friends, there is a good news for the PhD holder teachers. According to the Anandabazar Patrika, the kolkata High court cancelled the govt. view that additional increment can be given only for those teachers who has completed their PhD the control of Expenditure act was passed. The HC has found that the G.O. is not applicable for this matter and so every teacher will be eligible for 2 additional increment from the date of completing PhD. For details have a look at rhe paper athttp://www.anandabazar.com/5raj5.htmlAugust 18, 2012 at 7:05 pm #73697
Dear friend, you are eligible for incremental benefit for Ph.D. degree. With issuance of few High Court orders in recent time it is now not a matter of consideration that whether the degree was awarded before or after the Controller of Expenditure Act,2005 coming into effect (i.e. before or after the 18th August,2005). The G.O. dated 05.01.2012 that created embargo to the grant of increments to teachers acquiring PhD degree after enactment of the said act has been set aside by the court. See the court orders in Writ Petition No. WP 4532(W) of 2012 dated 04.07.2012 (Moniruzzaman case) and WP No. 6937(W) of 2007 dated 01.06.2012 (see reproductions attached herewith). So, you have legitimate claim for addl. increments if other conditions are satisfied. Best wishes. W.P. No. 4532(W)_on_4_July,_2012.pdf W.P. No. 4532(W)_on_4_July,_2012.pdf W.P.
