Article 323 A deals with administrative tribunals. It states that “Parliament may provide by law for the judgement or hearing by administrative tribunals of arguments and criticisms concerning hiring and conditions of individuals working in public services regarding matters of the State or local or Union or any other authority within the regions of India or under the power of the Indian Government or any agency owned or supervised by the Government.”

Article 323 A of Indian Constitution

In a word, administrative tribunals are quasi-judicial institutions (similar to court processes) that settle disputes concerning the employment and service requirements of those working in government. The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) was established in accordance with Article 323A.

Article 323 A reflects the form of tribunals for public service problems alone, and only the Parliament can appoint them. Article 323 A allows for the selection of only one tribunal for the Centre and one for each state, or two or more states.

  • There is no inquiry into the hierarchy of tribunals.
  • The Tribunals were set up to ease the workload of courts, accelerate the decisions, and provide a discussion that would be operated by lawyers in the areas under the jurisdiction.

On the other hand, Article 323 deals with the reports of the Union Public Service Commission and State Commission related to the work done by the respective Commission.
