(5.2)   That the clause 3 of the Scheme (A-1) is arbitrary and unconstitutional and ultravires to the extent it makes the scheme applicable only to those casual labourers who were in employment on the date of issuance of the said scheme, ie; :______..

 

(5.3)     That the impugned cut-off date is unconstitutional and ultra vires and creates unreasonable classification between the Casual Labourers and has no nexus with the object of granting temporary status to the similarly situated casual labourers so as to avoid their exploitation and unfair labour practice.

 

(5.4)     That the respondent Union of India has created distinction between the Casual Labourers which is not based on any intelligible differentia which can distinguish Casual Labourers grouped together for the purpose of extending the benefits under the Scheme and has no nexus with the object of stopping unfair labour practice sought to be achieved, by the Scheme of 1993.
