  • Obstinate mind set of Geological Survey of India, Northern Region, Lucknow officers have withheld revised pension to Survey stream workers on account of up gradation of post and revised MACP. Revised pensionary benefits have been given to eligible Survey personals in other offices of GSI, still why the retired eligible Survey personals were denied to get the due pension benefit is just beyond comprehension. Now in partial modification of earlier erroneous office orders an office order is issued after about two years. We the pensioners of Survey stream wish that there should not be further delay in fixation of due revised pension and payment of arrear.
