Friends, we, the pensioners, are passing through difficult times.  Inflation is unrelenting.  Prices of essential commodities have been sky-rocketing.  It is becoming increasingly difficult for the pensioners and family pensioners to make their both ends meet within their meager pensions and family pensions.  Government has not conceded our demands such as same fitment benefit to pre 1.1.2006 pensioners as given to working employees, implementation of   modified parity w.e.f., 1.1.2006, 50% DR merger w.e.f., 1.1.2011, raising of FMA  to Rs.1200/- per month, restoration of commuted portion of pension after 12 years, extension of new benefits of VI CPC  such as full pension for 20 years of service and last pay drawn for pension calculation to pre 1.1.2006 retirees, RELHS &  FMA benefits to secondary family pensioners, revision of ex-gratia rates of SRPF [C] retirees and their families w.e.f..,1.1.2006, time-bound disposal of pensioners’ grievances, liberalization of retirement and complimentary and widow pass rules for companion in the same class without paying the difference, etc.  Benefits such as house rent and transport allowances, festival advance,  funeral grant, ex-gratia in lieu of PLB, reduction of age limit for additional pension, etc., are all essential for pensioners and family pensioners to live in reasonable comfort.  There are no satisfactory answers to all these demands in the meetings of SCOVA. There is no other effective grievance redressal machinery for pensioners.   There is all round frustration among pensioners all over the country. It is high-time that we raised our voice jointly & severally for immediate steps to meet our just demands and aspirations.
