In winter, the heat of West Bengal DA Arrears case is at it’s peak. Whole India is looking forward about what is to happen in the Supreme Court.
There is no end to the state government employees’ agitation regarding West Bengal DA Arrears. The Calcutta High Court on May 20, 2022 directed the state government to clear the DA arrears of all the employees.
But the state Govt. did not obey this and filed a review petition. After this, the state Govt. approached the Supreme Court. The hearing of West Bengal DA Arrears case was on 14. 12. 2022. But Justice Dipankar Dutt himself walked away from the case. It is good to know that earlier he was brought in place of Justice Dinesh Maheshwari.
When asked about the reason for his decision to step down, Justice Dutta said, “All the state government employees were overjoyed after I came to this bench.” That’s why I felt I should step aside. For that, the Supreme Court informed that this hearing will be held in the third week of January next year.
