The Madras High Court has said it is granting the last opportunity to the Tamil Nadu government to comply with its order of August 12 this year relating to the implementation of the First National Judicial Pay Commission.

The panel was constituted to examine the service conditions of subordinate court staff of the States and Union Territories and submit a report on the steps to improve the conditions.

The First Bench consisting of the Chief Justice S.K. Kaul and Justice M. Sathyanarayanan said it was giving two weeks time to the Principal Secretary concerned to file his affidavit, failing which he would have to be personally present in the court.

The court passed the order on a writ petition filed by the Tamil Nadu Judicial Ministerial Officers Association, represented by its general secretary. In the petition filed through counsel, R. Neelakandan, the association said the Tamil Nadu government had so far issued G.O.s for implementing only a few recommendations and rejecting several other suggestions of the Commission as either not feasible of compliance or not justifiable.
