  1. Head clerks,Head commercial clerks,ASMs etc., of 1950s recruitment retired in scale 1400-2300 itself(pre-1996)due to failure of cadre restructuring.V CPC reduced them to lower scale while merging scales.we should have been given 5000-8000 with Min Pesion of 6750/-.Trade unions have done injustice us because we are not belong to "MIGHT IS RIGHT" categories.Pl render justice to atleast some surviving pensioners.
