    It was informed Grade pay of JE is fixed 4200/- considering merging of grade 500-8000/-5500-9000/- and 6500-10500/- resulting the grade pay calculated 40% of 10500/-=4200. it means all grade was marged to 6500-10500/. but now it is found unions and government has separated 5th cpc grade 6500-10500/- and given grade pay of 4600/- which is may not be treated as justice. sr technicians are getting grade pay of 4200/- where as technical supervisors are kept in same grade,due your act all promo tees to JE post are getting less pay/pension and loosing prestige.this is not expected. IRTSA , AIRF, NFIR, all are soughting for SSE only and deviding te3chnical supervisors sprites. please arrange proper justice. Thanks Narayan chandra Chatterjee Retaired JE CLW
