I wish to remind you that this issue is not going affect employees retired
between 01.11.2012 to 30.05.2015 only.
Those who are going to retire hereafter also will be affected.
Those who already retired will repay excess pension paid.
Those who are going to retire will be given less pension at the time of
disbursement itself. That is all.
Employees under NPS will also be affected, as contribution to NPS
will be of 2% Increase instead of 15% increase.
As these section of employees left with more number of service,
they will be the worst sufferer.
That is why I am talking about this.
“Why you have not revealed this at the time of M.O.U .dt 23.02.2015”
I wish to remind you what I said at that time (20.03.2015) :
(Read Grade Pay as “Spl.Allow.” as named now.)
“I am receiving too many queries about introduction of Grade Pay.
It is mentioned in the joint circular by award staff unions.
My view on Grade Pay is:
I do not support grade pay. The load should be on basic pay only.
Grade pay concept will spoil all future benefits.
Grade pay in central govt., was introduced to neutralise
the clubbing of two or more scale of pay.
In banks there is only one pay scale for clerks and Sub staff as well.
If scale 1,2 and 3 of officers are merged , then grade pay may be necessary.
However let us wait for final outcome.
Till such time let us express our concerns to give pressure to unions
to take right decisions.”
This post is still available in my Blog/FB.
Some comrades comment “all along the negations you supported the unions, but now
you find fault with them.”
My reply is when the war is between unions and Govt.,/IBA I stood by unions as a true union member. Now the war is between comrades and unions, I stand by my comrades.
Who is responsible for this set back of lesser % of wage revisions and back stabbing within the settlement?
In my view the reasons are
1. Attitude of Govt.,/IBA
2. Big brother attitude of “Big Brother Union”
