Briefing the functioning of the Steering Committee since its formation on 25/09/2014, the Convener of the Steering Committee has said that the Steering Committee has decided to intervene in the SLP filed against granting of MACP on promotional hierarchy by the Government against Shri M V Mohanan Nair (CAT Ernakulam), Shri Babu Ram, Smt Reeta Devi & Shri Dhirender Singh (CAT Chandigarh).The date of the case of Shri Mohanan Nair was listed as 08/10/2014 whereas the date of listing of Shri Babu Ram, Reeta Devi & Dhirender Singh is yet to be posted in the Supreme Court web site.As regards the engagement of advocates to defend the SLPs, the convener has said that Shri M V Mohanan Nair has engaged Justice Giri and Shri Babu Ram, Dhirender Singh and Smt Reeta Devi have engaged Adv O P Badhani to present their side.
Moreover, all India CPWD Engineers Association, National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees & CPWD Engineers Association have engaged advocates to file application for intervention in the case. Similarly, Shri Sanjay Kumar whose case is pending in the Delhi High Court has also decided to file an application before the Supreme Court in order to intervene in the case.
Leaders representing various Associations/Unions addressed the meeting and asked the Steering Committee to take the challenge very seriously and all possible efforts should be taken to resolve the issue positively and the case should properly be coordinated.
While discussing collection of funds to meet the expenses of the legal action, Convener of the Committee has said that Shri Mohanan Nair of CAT Ernakulam was not interested to go with the case because he was not in a position to bear the expenses of the senior advocate to be appointed to present his side. But following the formation of this SteeringCommittee at National level, some of the Central Government Employees under the leadership of Shri Harilal and Srikumar of MES come in support of Shri Mohanan Nair and has raised funds by collection from the affected Central Government Employees to meet his legal charges. But,  for  Babu Ram, Reeta Devi & Shri Dhirender Singh of Chandigarh have to be funded by this SteeringCommittee as these are low paid employees and they have no source of income to bear the legal expenses, the Convener said. The SteeringCommittee discussed the matter and unanimously decided to arrange financial support to Babu Ram, Reeta Devi & Shri Dhirender Singh to meet the legal expenses.

Thereafter, collection of contributionto meet the expenses of legal charges has been discussed and the representatives of the Associations present in the meeting voluntarily gave consents to give funds. Consents from 15 Associations viz. Census EDP Staff Association, Survey of India Group B Officers Association, IBM Administrative Staff Association, All India Central Ground Water Board Employees Association, Survey of India Ministerial Staff Association, All India Statistical Investigators Association, Statistical Officers Association, Akashwani-Doordarshan Camera man Association, Postal Engineers Association, All India Archeological Survey of India Employees Association, IMD Administrative  Staff Association, CPWD Assistant AD Association, All India CPWD Staff Association, All DDA Engineers Association,  Shri D P Sing &V M Tripathi of AIR, have been given to contribute Rs. 7,60,000. The representative of All India MES Civil Engineers Association has said that decision regarding contribution will be intimated to the Steering Committee by next meeting. Shri P S Prasad of Karnataka COC has said his COC will consider payment of contribution on receipt of a request letter on the matter from the Steering Committee.

It was also decided that no contribution will be paid in the form of cash and the amount need not be paid to the Steering Committee. The Associations have to pay contribution for which they have given consents in the meeting in the form of crossed cheque to the Advocates directly as per the directions of the Steering Committee under intimation to the Steering Committee.
