Sub: Request for payment of pension to the P&T pensioners on 1.4.2016 – Reg.
Ref :This Union letter of even no. dt. 28.3.2016.
First of all, we are thanking very much to our CPMG, TN for accepting our request and issued order for making payment of salary on 1.4.2016 itself by cash, in the event of failure in Finacle. However, the order is silent on effecting payment of pension on 1.4.2016, though we have requested for the same in the letter cited under reference.
As per CCS Pension Rules 1972, it is mandatory to pay the pension on the last working day of the month and during the month of March, it is on 1st April of the year. Hence it is not correct to stop payment or postpone the pension payment to any other convenient date to the Infosys, for their failure in maintaining the services.
We request the CPMG, TN, therefore, to consider the same and cause necessary action to effect payment of pension to the pensioners on 1st April.2016. as in the case of payment of salary.
With profound regards,
( J. RAMAMURTHY)
