Govt response on Prasar Bharati Union de-recognition petition sought by CAT

On the issue of de-recognition of emloyees’ associations in Prasar Bharti, the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has sought the Government's response on the petition filed by employees’ associations challenging the decision of the pubcaster.
A bench comprising Member Judicial Meera Chhibber and Member Administration Dr A K Misra directed the government to reply by 17 October on the plea of the employees for de-recognising their unions. The three petitioners - Association of Radio and TV Engineering Employees (ARTEE), AIR and DD Technical Employees Association, and the Programme Staff Association had earlier approached Delhi High Court challenging the office order of 8 September de-recognising all associations.

The petitioners then moved to CAT after Justice S Muralidhar of the Delhi High Court earlier this week said all matters under service rules should first be heard by the Tribunal and only an appeal can come to the Court.
