Equal Pay for Equal Work

Articles 14 and 39(d)--'Equal pay for equal work'-- Concept of--Whether permissible to have two pay scales in same cadre for persons having same duties and responsibilities-?

Here are the two different views of the Apex court on the subject Equal pay for equal work principle. 

A) Randhir Singh vs Union Of India & Ors on 22 February, 1982

No doubt, equation of posts and equation of pay are matters primarily for the Executive Government and expert bodies and not for the courts, but where all things are equal that is, where all relevant considerations are the same, persons holding identical posts may not be treated differentially in the matter of their pay merely because they belong to different departments. 

 B) Secretary, Finance Department and others v. West Bengal Registration Service Association and others, 1993 Supp (1) SCC 153, which thus reads: "Ordinarily a pay structure is evolved keeping in mind several factors, e.g., 
(i) method of recruitment, (ii) level at which recruitment is made, (iii) the hierarchy of service in a given cadre, (iv) "minimum educational/technical qualifications required, (v) avenues of promotion, (vi) the nature of duties and responsibilities, (vii) the horizontal and verticle relativities with similar jobs, (viii) public dealings, (ix) satisfaction level, (x) employer's capacity to pay, etc. 

The principles relating to granting higher scale of pay on the basis of equal pay for equal work are well settled. The evaluation of duties and responsibilities of different posts and determination of the pay scales applicable to such posts and determination of parity in duties and responsibilities are complex executive functions, to be carried out by expert bodies.

All General Secretaries 

Dear Comrades,

            8th March is observed as International Women's Day world over. Across the world, the women are asserting their rights with the slogan 'half the sky is ours'.
            The media is full of reports on atrocities against women, even against little girls. The national capital is leading in these inhuman, insane acts against girl child and women.

            This International Women's Day may be observed so as to initiate the campaign against these evils.          

 The workers movement is to be build up, the role of women is very important in this movement to face the challenges before us.

            With greetings,
                                                                                                                                Yours fraternally


Secretary General

The International Women' day which falls on 8th March is observed throughout the world. The UN theme for the International women's day 2013 is "A promise is a promise; time for action to end violence against women". This year in India, we saw a massive uprising against the atrocities on women immediately after the barbarous sexual assault on student in Delhi.  She later succumbed to the injuries suffered during the assault. 

                 Thousands of young men and women, students and common people assembled at Vijay Chowk and elsewhere in Delhi and other parts of the country demanding stringent action against the culprits besides asking the Government to make enactment to protect the women. Empowerment of women is an issue that has to be focused and taken to its logical end. There is no shortcut for that. Raising the conscious level of the society at large through sustained campaign and struggles is the only way out. It is a painstaking path, but there is no other alternative.

The brutalities against women, attempt to dispossess the women of their right to property is the outcome of the patriarchal system that has taken roots in our country. In our society today women are being portrayed as a commercial commodity an offshoot of the impact of the neo liberal economic policies where except profit nothing matters. The fight for empowerment of women, hence, cannot be separate from the struggle against finance capital driven neo-liberal economic policies.
