MAIL SENT TO DG DEPARTMENT OF POSTS ON POSTMAN JUDGMENT
The Director General
Department of Posts
New Delhi – 110001
Sub: Refixation of Pension for Postmen Pensioners on the basis of the Supreme Court Judgment on SLP Civil Appeal Number 2010 OF 2009 delivered on 7-5-2015 – regarding.
This Association hastens to bring to your kind notice that consequent on the disposal of the Civil Appeal noted above with the judgment for granting monetary benefit notionally from 1.1.1996 to 10.10.1997, the Department of Posts has to issue an order for implementation of the above benefit. Though there will not be any payment of arrears of wages or salary is involved, the notional benefit will necessitate refixation of pension of all the post-1.1.1996 Postman retirees. Due to delay in issue of orders by the Department of Posts, thousands of pensioners belonging to Postman cadre retired since 1996 are yet to receive their due benefit.
This Association therefore requests for quick release of appropriate orders taking into consideration that the issue had been prolonged for a number of years in litigation. We also request for refixation of pension without any need for personal representations from the pensioners concerned.
