I thanks Malik ji for sharing the judgement but I support the view of Akarshan ji.
In my view, the judgement delivered by any High Court is not binding if you are not falling under its jurisdiction. Also, one has to read fully the judgement delivered and infer it to present circumstances whether it is applicable.
In Maharashtra, special allowance denotes Cost of living allowance i.e. dearness allowance and therefore PF attracts on the special allowance in Maharashtra.
