It is a futile exercise to cling on to the subject regulation
The title to that para of PR is Rate Of Pension and not updation of pension
The directive is a formula to rise 86/87 retirees' pension to perceptible level at the time of pension implementation WE cannot befool the judiciary with the bloomers PR carries in wording in that segment
PR cannot have a set formula for Updation
It is at the behest of MOF
Even bipartite is negotiation done for updation every 4 years with agreement arrived at.
It is true that negotiating Unions /associations have failed us in the past.
It is unfortunate that AIBPARC is creating road block for updation to start with pre 2002 retirees .Everything otherwise nothing is illogical
Pre 2002 retirees are worst affected lot
Denial of 100% Da neutralisation is deepest cut for them
As somebody said the loss is nearly 8 lacs
All of them are in the evenings of life and the average remnant life span will be another 3 years
Full fledged updation to them will not cover the loss they have suffered and the extra amount they get over the next batch (post 2002) will be illusory.
Beginning with pre 2002 will be laying a road map .,Otherwise there is risk of road remaining rugged never navigable
Let us not try to upset the APPLE CART
Republic Day Greetings to one and all
