    In spite of my remainder in writing I am neither invited nor informed for the retirement party along with others who retired on 31.5.2010 in ICF. My settlement amount was also despatched to me without any detail. I had to ask for the split a/c and the same was received by post in Novr.2010. My claim for the delay, and interest were not been responded so far. The same was registered with the Grievance cell with no impact. My appeals to the RB and to all concerned were left ignored. This is the state. But now this G.O. on paper is only on academic value only. Besides my option on pay fixation recommended by ICF after repeated appeals and follow up are of no value so far. This had resulted me a loss of about 3 Lakhs in service, settlement and pension. In addition in 7CPC pensioner benifit. A total sum of about 5 Lakhs so far, in addition to postal epenses ,Additionally my personal cot on visits to NDLS. Whom to approach further? How to get the genuine eligible dues recurringly increasing? Will the Govt look at this loan case?
