Answer

Correct Option is Both

Central Administrative Tribunal (was set up in 1985) is a multi-member body consisting of a chairman and members. 1. With the amendment in the Administrative Tribunals Act, 1985 in 2006, the members have been given the status of judges of High Courts. 2. They are drawn from both judicial and administrative streams and are appointed by the president. 3. They hold office for a term of five years or until they attain the age of 65 years, in the case of chairman and 62 years in case of members, whichever is earlier. Chandra Kumar case (1997) Supreme Court declared appeals against the orders of the Central Administrative Tribunal shall lie before both Supreme Court and high court. But it is not possible for an aggrieved public servant to approach the Supreme Court directly against an order of the Central Administrative Tribunal, without first going to the concerned high court. Hence both statements are correct.
