NDTV claims that it was the first to find out the developments on this issue. It claims that NDTV has learnt that the Chief Justice of India (CJI) has written a four page long letter to the Law Minister asking for a pay hike to keep up with bureaucrats after the Sixth Pay Commission. This development has caused a big flutter in the cabinate.

Then, its isnt only about money - the issue appears to go beyond money, as it is also about status and power.
