Our contempt petition pending before Delhi High Court came up for hearing today at 12:45 on 19/02/2020.

GS(ITSA) along with EB members and Officers Deployed in BSNL were present in the Court.

ITSA counsel argued strongly to repatriate all the officers quoting that the respondent is delaying the implementation by diverting the issue and entire judgement will become in fructuous after 2023. Officers are getting retired without getting benefit of working in government.

ASG pleaded the court that they have paid the pending salary will also be paid by 31st March.
