The decision of the CHQ AIPRPA to call the Postal Pensioners to stage a protest demonstration in front of HPOs / Divisional Offices / ROs / Circle Offices against the undue delay in disbursement of enhanced FMA to POSB accounts holding Pensioners stands communicated to the Secretary Department of Posts. The E-Mail communication sent to DG Posts is as follows:
Sub: Postal Pensioners protest against undue delay in disbursement of enhanced FMA to POSB Account holding Pensioners - reg.
The Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare had issued the order for enhancement of FMA from 300/- to 500/- w.e.f. 19-11-2014. The above orders have been implemented for bigger departments like Railways. Even the Postal Pensioners who have Savings Accounts in Banks have received the payment. But the Postal Pensioners who have POSB Accounts for drawing their pension alone are yet to get the payment. This is without any logic and the distress amongst the Postal Pensioners is very deep. This Association had preferred an earlier email to you on this issue. Incidentally NFPE Federation also addressed a letter to Directorate in this matter. However, there seems no progress.
Under these circumstances. if the payment continues to be delayed further, the Postal and RMS Pensioners under our AIPRPA have decided to stage a protest demonstration in front of HPOs / Divisional Offices / ROs / Circle Offices according to local conditions on 12.01.2015.
