The Hon’ble Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 7747 of 2012, has observed that rules that were set to govern a single post of the same cadre cannot be isolated and granting a higher pay scale considering the qualifications of the single post is a clear violation of the rules and regulations. In this case, the Hon’ble Supreme Court ordered a direct recovery of the excess amount paid to respondent no. 4, though in instalments and from the officers who were directly involved in the decision-making process for granting benefit to respondent no 4.
