Animal Husbandry (Non-Ministerial) Class III Service Rules, 1992 - It
has been noticed by the State Government that duties and responsibilities as also prescribed qualifications for the posts of Milk Recorders and Junior Field Investigators are different -
Still further, Junior Field Investigator has been noticed as a promotional post from amongst the Milk Recorders - It is on the basis of valid and cogent reasoning that a view has been taken
while rejecting the claim of the Milk - Recorders seeking pay parity with Junior Field Investigators. (173) P.L.R.
Animal Husbandry (Non-Ministerial) Class III Service Rules, 1992 - Milk Recorder - That claim qua
pay could have been considered qua such Milk Recorders like the petitioners who had joined on the post prior to Service Rules, 1992 having come into force, is also without merit - Acceptance
of such a prayer would necessarily result in a situation whereby in one single cadre of Milk Recorders, two different classes would be created - It is impermissible in law to admit different
pay scales to the incumbents holding the same posts and shouldering the same duties and responsibilities. (173) P.L.R.
Animal Husbandry (Non-Ministerial) Class III Service Rules, 1992 - The principles governing `equal pay for equal work'
and grant of pay scale to a particularpost - Decisions with regard to equivalence of posts, maintaining pay parity, revision of pay scales etc. lie in the
sphere of policy making which, in turn, would be within the domain of the executive - In taking any such decision, relevant para-meters would require to be gone into in the nature of the
qualifications prescribed, method and manner of recruitment, duties, job content, degree of responsibility, financial constraints of the State Government etc. - Such exercise is not to be
undertaken at the hands of this Court in exercise of its extraordinary writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. (173) P.L.R.
