HC directs setting up of PF Tribunal in states


The petitioner, the Karwar-based Janatha Credit Co-Operative Society, had moved the High Court stating that to redress any grievances related to the Provident funds, one should go to New Delhi if they want justice from the tribunal, which the poor litigants cannot afford. The petitioners said that if a tribunal is set up in the State, it will be helpful for the employees at large.

Government Counsel M C Nagashree submitted that thousands of such cases related to Provident Funds are waiting for justice.
Justice Ram Mohan Reddy, who heard the matter has directed the Union Law Ministry to set up a tribunal at least in the State if not in all districts to help the poor litigants.
The Court has also directed the Ministry to report regarding the steps taken to set up the PFT within six months and report the same to the Court.
