I had retired from the services of Textiles Committee, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India in March 2016 as Deputy Director. But my earned leave encashment was withheld for many months and finally settled after recovering a hefty sum.
The recovery being of excess payment made during pay fixation as per Sixth Pay Commission. The recovery was initiated as per Ministry of Textiles letter no. 19.04.2014-Estt dated 11.05.16. But the referred letter also stated that recovery has to carried out as per instructions of DOPT contained in their OM No.18/03/2015-Estt(Pay-I) dated 02.03.16. The DOPT memorandum has been issued based on a Supreme Judgement which prohibits recovery of excess payment from retired employees. So it is very clear that Textiles Committee cannot recover excess payment from me. The unfortunate thing is still the excess payment is being made to the current employees.
Kindly help me in approaching a court of law.
