July 5, 2015 05:54 IST, The State government has informed the Madras High Court that the recommendations of Shetty Commission which framed pay structure and service conditions of subordinate court employees would be implemented in three months.
When the matter came up for hearing before the First Bench comprising Chief Justice S.K. Kaul and Justice T.S. Sivagnanam, the State Finance Secretary appeared in person in the court.
The Advocate-General undertook to ensure that the recommendations of the Commission are implemented within three months from Friday.
The case was later posted for October 10.
The first National Judicial Pay Commission under retired judge K. Jagannatha Shetty submitted a report after examining service conditions, including the pay structure of subordinate court employees.
The Tamil Nadu government had accepted the recommendations in its entirety in 2008 and accepted to implement them from 2008.
During the course of hearing in April this year, the High Court had directed the Chief Secretary and the Finance Secretary to appear in person if the recommendations were not implemented in two months.
Earlier, when the case came up in October last year, the government had sought six months time.
