P3 NFPE General Secretary wrote on our behalf to DOP
Dear Comrades / Friends,
The CHQ as well as the State Organisation of AIPRPA was brought to the knowledge that due to the non-issuance of endorsement orders by the Directorate of Postal Department, no family pension was granted to the spouses of the deceased postal employees covered under New Pension Scheme [now renamed as National Pension Scheme]. The suffering people complaint prompted the AIPRPA to seek intervention at the DOP level through the NFPE. As per our request the General Secretary NFPE P3 Union has written to the Secretary Department of Posts to take action immediately in this matter. The AIPRPA thanks the General Secretary P3 NFPE as well as the Secretary General NFPE Comrade M.Krishnan for his kind intervention in this urgent matter. The copy of the letter written by General Secretary P3 is placed hereunder for the information of all. If any such case of denial of family pension to the spouses of deceased postal employees under NPS are noted in any circles, the cases may pl be brought to the notice of the CHQ for intervention.
