SALARIES OF JUDGES OF THE SUPREME COURT AND HIGH COURTS INCREASED

The Cabinet in its meeting held yesterday decided to increase the salaries of Judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts. This revision has been necessitated because of the increase in the salaries of the Central Government employees on acceptance of the recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission. 


The Chief Justice of India will now get a salary of Rs.1,00,000/- p.m. plus Dearness Allowance(DA) thereon. Judges of Supreme Court and Chief Justices of High Courts will draw a salary of Rs. 90,000/- p.m. plus DA thereon whilst the Judges of High Court will draw a salary of Rs.80,000/- p.m. plus DA thereon. This will be effective from 01.01.2006. 40% of the arrears of salary will be given in the current financial year and the balance 60% in the next financial year.
The Government has also decided to double the existing limit of both sumptuary allowance and furnishing allowance for all the Supreme Court and High Court Judges. This will be effective from 01.09.2008.
Necessary Government order will issue after effecting amendment in the relevant legislation.
