This file reportedly, repeat reportedly, contains incorporation of the Opinion dated 03 Sep 13 of the Ld Attorney General for India i.e applicability of the Hon'ble Court's order is to be with effect from 1.1.1986 and not as on 1.1.1986 and deduction of Rank Pay for fixation of pay in the 5th has to be reversed i.e with effect from 1.1.1996 and its effect on re-fixation wef 1.1.2006.

Two issues will be left to be decided
Either by the Hon'ble Court - whether there was a minimum pay for each rank recommended by the 4th CPC and whether the ceiling of the integrated pay scale needs to raised to the extent of restoration of amount of Rank Pay
By the Ld Attorney General, if the Service HQ SoC dated 25 Nov 13 forwarded by MoD to LA (Def) has been put up for the opinion of the Ld AG.
