Sir,I m working in an educational institution which is under MHRD. Can I approach CAT for service matters
Jurisdiction of Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) is provided under Section 14 of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985. A person working under the Central Government can directly approach the CAT for getting justice in service related matters.
However, a Notification by the Central Government under Section 14(2) of the above Act is necessary to apply the jurisdiction of CAT to persons working under local or other authorities within the territory of India or under the control of the Government of India and to corporations or societies owned or controlled by Government (not being a local or other authority or corporation or society controlled or owned by a State Government).
Therefore, you’ll have to check whether such a notification has been issued in respect of your educational institution which is under the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) of the Government of India. You can check a list of such institutions which have been notified, at the website of CAT and this list is available at the following link: http://cgatnew.gov.in/writereaddata/Delhi/docs/Jurisdiction%20of%20CAT.pdf.
Try to find out whether your institution is listed in the above list.
