    1.Good to know the repeated opportunity Canvass for the option exercise for their benefit. Can
    be made automatic to those beneficiers and they may be adviced accordingly and save time &
    money in time. The CPC is automatic to all.

    2.And what about the implementation of old case(s).? My case (the only one) is pending from
    1996 onwards from ICF. On repeated appeal it was considered as genuine and recommended by the
    admin in 2005 (10yrs to process) and the finance discouraged on financial grounds(!?) to the
    Board for orders. On repeated appeals and discussions it was again considered and recommended
    as the only case in 1999 (another 5 years to process) and now the Board responded as NO SCOPE
    in 2010 May. When the CPC benefit is uniform to all my genuine single case in…
    3. I retired in May 2010 and is appealing for justice till now. An pXL sheet was also prepared
    on the difference in Pay alone (about 2.5 lakhs). and submitted.
    4. This further affected my settlement, pension from June 2010 and in 7CPC pension benefits. 5. The total loss is is about 5+ lakhs so far. in addition to my appeals and personal visits to
    the Board by about one lakh.
    6. Will it be looked in and paid with applicable interest as per rules on my repeated appeals?

    7. Is there any one to look at it?
