Two appeals were made by both the employer and the workmen through a special appeal in the Supreme court of India. These appeals arose out of an industrial dispute between the employer and the workmen of Hindustan Times Pvt Ltd. The dispute was first referred for adjudication to the Industrial Tribunal Delhi by the order of the Chief Commissioner, Delhi. The award was made by the tribunal on March 16, 1959.

The employer challenged the award as regards Scales of pay, Dearness allowance, adjustments, Leave Rules, Gratuity and the retrospective effect of the award. The workmen also challenged the award as regards the scales of pay and dearness allowance in addition to attacking the awards on the grounds of Working hours, leave rules, night shift allowance, retirement age and procedure for taking disciplinary action.
