JUDGEMENT

- (1.)The Petitioneris the Librarian in Sri Verateswara Oriental College, Tirupati, which is under the management of the Second-respondent-Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams and is affiliated to Sri Venkateswara University. The petitioner impugnes the proceedings of the first respondent-Commissioner of Collegiate Education dated 4-10-1989, stating that there is no provision for the post of Librarian in the Oriental Colleges and, there fore, the question of approving the pay fixation of the Librarian on par with University Grants Commission's scales does not arise.
(2.)The petitioner was appointed as Librarian on 9-9-1980 and she joined in the said post on 12-9-1980. Her services were regularised with probationary rights on 4-4-1988 in the scales of Rs.800-1450(D.A. merged scale) which is a State scale, with effect from 25-12-1987. In the year 1984, the scales applicable as laid down by U.G.C. came into effect, fixing the scale of pay Rs.700-1600 for Lecturers.
(3.)By G.O.Ms.No.491 dated 16-11-1984, the U.G.C. scales were made applicable to Librarians also and the authorities were directed to implement the said scales. On 29-11-1985 Sri Venkateswara University, by its proceedings, endorsed the application of the U,G.C. scales in accordance with the said G.O. Under G.O.Ms.No.91 dated 26-3-1987, the posts of Librarians were re-designated as Lecturers in Library Science. The petitioner possessed the requisite qualifications prescribed, to hold the post of Librarian which was redesignated as Lecturer.
