Know the jurisdiction of CAT

Central Administrative Tribunal was created under the Act of Parliament to deal with the service disputes of central government employees, central government undertakings and autonomous bodies under the central government.

An amendment in Article 232 of the Constitution of India was carried on and all cases related to the central government were transferred from High Courts to Central Administrative Tribunal or CAT as it is called. At present there are 17 benches of CAT across India to deal with the service matters of central government employees. The lawyer appearing before the CAT are called the CAT lawyer.


The provisions of the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985 do not, however, apply to members of paramilitary forces, armed forces of the Union, officers or employees of the Supreme Court, or to persons appointed to the Secretariat Staff of either House of Parliament or the Secretariat staff of State/Union Territory Legislatures.

Special notification with regard to the adjudication of the disputes of the employees of Delhi Government and various bodies of the Delhi Government has been done, pursuant to which the service dispute of the Delhi Government employees is now taken up by CAT for adjudication.

The issues on which any employee can approach CAT:

  • Recruitment disputes, disputes with regard to interpretation of recruitment rules
  • Appointment disputes
  • Suspension disputes, misconduct issues
  • Charge sheet and departmental inquiry
  • Issue of memo, warning letter and all issues related to ACR
  • Promotion and demotion issues
  • Transfer and posting issues
  • Pay scale fixation and grant of MACP, FNSG issues
  • ACR issues and matters
  • PCA Act matters related to charges of PCA
  • CVC matters
  • CBI matters
  • All punishment matters
  • Removal, termination, discharge, dismissal matters
  • Retirement and VRS issues, fixation of pension issues
  • All other issues and incidences related to service
  • All issues related to interpretation of FRSR, CCA, CCS, OMs of DOPT, circulars and all other related documents

The category of cases filed before CAT are Original Application or OA which is filed in accordance with the prescribed format and the instructions issued for proper and just adjudication of the matter. One has to take the services of an expert CAT lawyer.

After filing of the OA by the Expert CAT lawyer, the listing of the case is ordered by the Registrar of CAT and depending upon the nature of the relief, the case is listed either before a single judge bench or a double judge bench.

Since CAT is a specialized court of dealing with the disputes related to appointment, recruitment, transfer, posting, suspension, removal, dismissal, penalty, promotion, pension, chargesheet etc, all the rules and regulations of various departments alongwith the FRSR and the OMs of DOPT are considered besides considering the general laws and the disputes are decided on the basis of the same. The CAT lawyer engaged for the OA should be well versed with all these.

As such the disposal of the OA before the CAT is very quick and effective. The objective of establishing CAT for early disposal of the disputes of the central government employees is being achieved.

Other categories of cases to be filed before CAT are MA or Miscellaneous Applications which are interlocutory in nature and have a limited prayer. MA can only be filed in a OA either by the applicant who has filed the OA or by any of the affected persons by the outcome of the said OA.
