  21. महोदय जो कर्मचारी और अधिकारी भारतीय डाक तार विभाग द्वारा नियुक्त किए गए थे और अब सेवानिवृत्ति के पश्चात् भारत सरकार उनको पेंशन का भुगतान कर रही है। उनके लिए सातवाँ वेतनमान लागू करना चाहिए। ऐसा न करना उनके साथ सरासर अन्याय है। और चिकित्सा सुबिधा भी प्रदान करनी चाहिए ।

  24. Government must apply the clause of profitability for central/state Govt Departments this will be justice to mitigate non revision of pay scales of BSNL team, Nearly all ministries/departments working for welfare of State then why BSNL team is linked with profitability clause this team is also on the job like others.

      • Supreme court has held that pension is not a bounty. It is not at the wish of the govt. or any other person. It is our right. for pension, do not be a begger, Pay/Pension revision has not been done due to certain inefficient leaders, They are always in a mood to go on strike, By the meager strength of BSNL at present, there are chances that employees/ pensioners have to suffer on that count.

  27. Though the IDA rates are revised w.e.f. 1st Oct 2018, but as usual all retired employed who are taking their pension through Post Offices will be paid not before January 2019, as post offices get the order through Nagpur and Nagpur takes about 3 t o4 months time to issue orders to all post offices. This I am observing since 2001, as I am taking my pension from post office at Pune. Will some body look in this type of harassment.
