J&K, Ladakh to come under jurisdiction of CAT soon

Tweeted by @DrJitendraSingh
Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office, Jitendra Singh has said that Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh will soon be covered by the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT). Addressing the annual conference of the CAT in New Delhi, he said the tribunal will have jurisdiction to handle disputes and other issues related to the UT services. The CAT so far had jurisdiction only over central services issues in Jammu and Kashmir.

Dr Singh said that in due course of time, an exclusive bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal will be set up in Jammu and Kashmir and till then the Chandigarh bench of the tribunal may attend to the service disputes and other cases from the Union territory.

In this regard, he had a discussion with CAT Chairman Justice L. Narismha Reddy.

Dr Singh reiterated that the CAT has been an essential organ of the government towards the achievement of a complaints-free delivery system. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has assured the help of the IT Department and use of artificial intelligence in the functioning of the Tribunal.
