CAT to remain suspended till May 3

By IndianMandarins- 22 Apr 2020


Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) benches adjudicating matters related to service of central government employees will remain suspended till May 3, 2020.

Though some relaxations have been made by the government in view of certain activities aimed at ensuring the supply of essential commodities particularly food grains apart from measures to provide a livelihood to the poorer sections. The offices are permitted to function in a highly restricted manner without permitting entry of, or any physical contact with, the public in general.

“It is therefore decided that the functioning of, and hearing in, the benches of the CAT shall remain suspended till May 3, 2020. The feasibility of working on certain days already declared as holidays or vacation shall also be considered once the functioning begins,” a statement issued in this regard says.

The information received so far has revealed that the high courts are not functioning and exceptional cases are dealt with through video conferencing. In almost all places, the benches are located at hotspots. The representatives of Bar have also expressed their difficulty in filing or pursuing the cases in this situation.
