    All kinds of tricks are being done by the Government to deny or delay the legitimate dues of its employees and pensioners. India being a welfare state, denial of legitimate due of its senior citizens is shameful. The course open is the judiciary where from justice could be had but the sad fact is how many senior citizen will survive to enjoy the fruits. There is no hope left in this Government.

    Still the orders for hike in DR from July 2016 for autonomous pensioners have not been issued. Do not know why there is so much delay—.

    Very sorry to say that the order for DR to pensioners of autonomous bodies getting 6th pay pensions has not been released by the concerned finance ministry.

    Agree with Shalabh Agarwal. CG employees have to wait and watch.

  • Shalabh Agarwal 8 years ago

    now seperate DA order indicates that either Govt will not implement 7 cpc pay hike or it will take indefinite time to implement otherwise there was no need to issue seperate order.Seems that now onwards there will be two DA orders issue one for CG employees and another one for Autonomous bodies employees.

  • This topic is mis leading/ deceiving the CGE and pensioners because hunger will be fulfill with food not with talks.

    Autonomous bodies want 7th cpc recommendations….but thanks to god finance ministry remember autonomous bodies ….aotonomus employee feel like "souteli aaulad"

  • Shalabh Agarwal 8 years ago
