Best CAT Lawyer in Chandigarh Panchkula Mohali

Being an advocate myself, I wonder at times, what sorts of matter would come to this court and why? But now with passage of time, I just know it which matter would be in High Court Punjab and Haryana and which will be before Central Administrative Tribunal Chandigarh.

Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) was established to adjudicate service matter disputes and claims of organizations, departments and institutions under the aegis of Central Government or ministry directly managing the organ/arm of the department.
