  2. राज्य सरकारों के सेवा निवृत्त कर्मचारी अधिकारी भी चिकित्सा सुविधाओं का लाभ प्राप्त कर रहे हैं। बी एस एन एल के कर्मचारी अधिकारी ही इस सुविधा के लाभ से वंचित कब तक रहेंगे।

  3. Why and how Government has freezed the DA/IDA of pensioner, money are required to the pensioner for their treatment in their old age, Government also not giving the medical allowance and not paying the medical bills since long, this is injustice on the pensioner, Unions are requested to try for revoking these orders.

  4. SAIL is a CPSU where IDA is different for Executives and Non-executives. How can I know the IDA of Non-executives from 1st Oct-2020. Please clarify.

    Thanking You.

      • Internet link का address क्या है जहां से पेंशन पै स्लिप download की जा सके.

      • PNB has made provision for pension pay slip thorugh its app mpassbook, you may like to use the facility if you happen to have a PNB account

  8. Why the government has not extended the standard deduction limit,
    The prices of essential commodities are very high.

  9. DA increase is a partial compensation of growing increase in cost of essentials and living and even though increase in DA is appreciated, this is an indication of the governments lack of control of prices of essential items, especially fuel costs and the enormous increase in cost of petrol, diesel, CNG, PNG is highly deplorable.

Though increase in DA is appreciated, this is an indication of the governments lack of control of prices of essential items, especially fuel costs. enormous increase in cost of petrol, diesel, CNG, PNG is highly deplorable.

  11. Abnormal increase of consumer goods and uncontrolled price of commodities leads this much increase. This increase of 8DA is only a compensatory one to the employee wing what about the normal citizen’s ability to procure consumables. Is not at all happy thing failure of govt in Toto.
