RETIRED FROM GRADE IV WITH PAY SCALE OF 6500-10500
Originally, the Grade Pay granted to the pay band of Rs 6500-10500 was Rs 4200 .Later on the Grade Pay was increased to Rs 4600. But, when the new Concordance Table was prepared, the increased GP of Rs. 4600 was not taken into account. As a result, those who DOT pensioners retired from Grade IV are denied their due pension in the recently implemented pension revision based on order dated 12-5-2017. It is a very simple matter. But, bureaucrats in Delhi will not give the benefit to pensioners. Matter was discussed in SCOVA meeting on 23-3-2018. Only discussion; no decision. The official minutes indicates that:
“the proposal was not agreed to by Dept. of Expenditure. The matter has again been referred to Department of Expenditure for reconsideration on 22-2-2018. Department of Expenditure was requested to expedite their decision in the matter.”
Anomaly in fixation of pension of DoT employees absorbed in BSNL between 1-10-2000 and 30-7-2001 was discussed once again in the SCOVA meeting on 23-3-2018. As usual, only discussion; no decision. See the following lines quoted from the official minutes of SCOVA meeting of 23-3-2018
“ (vi) Anomaly in fixation of pension of DoT employees absorbed in BSNL between 1-10-2000 and 30-7-2001
DOT informed that the Hon’ble CAT in its order dated 16-12-2016 has allowed the petition filed by some absorbee BSNL pensioners who retired during 01-10-2000 and 30-07-2001. DOT has filed a writ petition in Delhi High Court against the order of Hon’ble CAT. Hon’ble High Court has granted stay on implementation of Hon’ble CAT order. The case will come up for hearing in High Court in October 2018.
DoT has separately moved a proposal to Department of Expenditure on a formulation suggested by DoPPW. Department of Expenditure has sought financial implications on the proposal. DoT is compiling information and would submit the same to Department of Expenditure.
[Action: Department of Telecom and Department of Expenditure.]”
THE AFFECTED PENSIONERS ARE ABOVE THE AGE OF 77.
MANY OF THEM LEFT THIS WORLD. BUT DOT WILL NOT BE MOVED.
