Secy. Genl. S.C.Maheshwari’s message to BPS stake holders (COMMUNICATE, COORDINATE & CONSOLIDATE)
We have to exert to spread awareness about pensioners contribution to the nation and the society, their service conditions & entitlement for pension, which never has been a defined benefit in this country . Even after retirement, their rich experiences /knowledge & talents guide and assist the younger generation. A good number of serving Personnel are not aware of their service conditions and post-retirement entitlements as guaranteed by the constitution, service contracts & by the Supreme Court pronouncements .Majority of pensioners, especially those living in remote areas or retired from lower rungs remain in dark about latest developments benefitting them. Social media and modern technology have made it easier to interact. Large section of Civil society considers exiting pension system for pre 2004 employees to be a defined benefit & a burden on exchequer which is infact is not so. May be this is a result of misconception created by Governments to cover their own mis-governance . Projection of real facts can remove these ill-feelings and change their attitude towards pensioners/family pensioners. Small groups of thoughtful committed pensioners spread over the country can bring a change in the attitudes of the society and the Govt. Most of the times counseling is required to motivate the would-be retirees to understand the issues and join hands with old pensioners. Let us then through our affiliates & associates launch a communication drive.
