To

All PCsDA/PCA(Fys) /CsDA/CFAs

Subject:-Payment of Legal Fee to Central Govt. Counsels – clarification reg.

With reference to the existing provisions relating to payment of Legal Fee to Central Govt. Counsels, certain doubts raised by the office of PCDA have been taken-up with the Ministry of Law & Justice, Department of Legal Affairs (Judicial Section) for clarification/guidelines. Based on the clarifications received, the summary of the points of doubt and clarification are as given below:-

No. Existing provisions and point of doubt Clarification
(i) The revised fee structure applicable to Govt. Counsels of Supreme Court/ High Court/CAT/Distt. Courts has been notified by Min. of Law & Justice, Dept. of Legal Affairs vide their OM bearing No. 26(1)/2014/Judl. dated 01.10.2015. As per the said OM dated 01.10.2015, payment of legal fee for

non-effective hearings in a case has been restricted to five (05) and payment of legal fee for Conferences in a case has been restricted to four (04).

Point of Doubt

In case, the Govt. Counsel has been changed during the pendency of a case who has already been paid for maximum number of non-effective hearings & conference, whether the newly appointed Govt. Counsel can be paid fee for another five (05) non-effective hearings & (04) conference or not.

The OM No.26(1)/2014-Judl. Dated 01.10.2015 itself restricts the payment to a maximum of five non- effective hearings. Hence, a new counsel appointed during the pendency of a case will not be eligible for payment for non-effective hearings in case the limit of five as stated in above in above- mentioned OM is exhausted.
(ii) In case, a proxy Counsel has appeared on behalf of nominated Govt. Counsel, Whether legal fee {effective or non effective} can be paid to the CGSC for hearings appeared by proxy counsel. When proxy/private counsel has appeared on behalf of the Govt. Counsel in a matter, such nominated counsel is not entitled to payment of fee bill.

The relevant OM dated 01/10/2015 is available on the website of the Ministry of Law & Justice, Department of Legal Affairs.

2. All the legal fee bills of Govt. Counsels may be regulated accordingly.

Ref: HQ office letter No.AT/II/2455-VI dated 06.07.2018

It has been inferred in Para 5 of the aforesaid letter that the provisions of Para 8(iii) of DoP&T OM No 3/3/2016-Estt (Pay-II) dated 01.05.2017 and hence Para 3(v) of DoP&T OM No 3/19/2009-Estt (Pay II) dated 05.04.2010, which is analogical to para 8(iii) of OM No 3/3/2016-Estt (Pay-II) dated 01.05.2017, are applicable only for the pay fixation of retired Gr A officers on re-employment and not for the pay fixation of PBORs on re-employment in civil posts. Accordingly, pay fixation of persons who retired as PBOR and got re-employed in civil posts, in the revised structure of 6th CPC is to be regulated as per the provisions laid down in para 4(b)(i), 4(b)(ii) read with para 4(d) of DoP&T OM No 3/19/2009-Estt (Pay II) dated 05.04.2010.

Army Persons to buy Personal Clothing

07 JUN 2018

The Seventh Pay Commission has awarded monetary compensation to jawans for allowing purchase of personal clothing items of uniform to be purchased under arrangement to be made by the Army. An annual remuneration of Rs 10,000/- has been paid to all jawans in lieu of selected items of personal clothing. Accordingly, Army has made arrangements for purchase of quality cloth to be made available through CSD outlets and stitching to be carried out under unit arrangements or any other means that the individual jawans may wish to get their clothing stitched as per authorized specifications. This provision is applicable to Central Armed Police Forces as well. It is, therefore, incorrect and inappropriate to single out Army on this issue through inadequately researched articles in the media.
