HUMAN RIGHT VIOLATION INFLICTED AND PERPETRATED AGAINST THE ERSTWHILE 5512 NOW SURVIVING HARDLY 2700) ALL ARE 70 YEARS + OLD FOOD DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEES EAGERLY AWAITING TO SEE THEIR PENSION IN THEIR LIFE TIME
In our case we had been sending several Grievance petition in the matter of sanction of central government liberalized pension to the left over 5523 foodtransferee employees of whom only about 2700 are alive . The grievance disposal by nodal officer in the Food Department is far from satisfactory for obvious reasons and the matter is being allowed to linger on and it is for time for your good self to interfere and restore the confidence in the pg grievance mechanism of the Central Government. That was the reason why my exclusive prayer direct to your honor Sir.
Having failed to get justice I am per forced to knock at the door or right from Highest Authorities of this Great Nation including His Excellency the Vice President of India and His Excellency the Vice President of India was kind enough to find reason on our grievance and advised the Chairman, Food Corporation of India to take action on my grievance petition Sir. Even after that no action forth coming.
Dear respected Sir,
Great injustice and human right violation has peen inflicted , rather perpetrated on the erstwhile employees of the Food Department who were transferred en mass to the Food Corporation of India during 1967 when 5512 employees out of them were singled out and denied pension even after the IV pay recommendations had come to our rescue according to which all cpf optees be should be brought to Central Government Pension Scheme with effect from 01/01/1986. It is a fact on record that there are hardly 3037 employees all India still alive now out of 5512 ex Central Government Department of Food Employees as per bio data submitted by FCI as early as during 2007-08 to the Food Department each day waiting to see our liberalized pension order before our demise and as we are struggling to meet our day to day life became costlier owing to old age medical care. We are employees of Government of India Food Department surviving +70age who are denied pension even after recommendations of two Parliament committee on petition of 14 and 15 Lok Sabha who had confirmed with records documents,evidence that we were wronged and rightly due for pension. As a follow up Food Department had at the fag end of tenure of previous UPA Government was pleased to recommend to the Cabinet for amending the Section 12 A of the Food Corporations Act 1964 to enable the food transferees to opt for liberalized pension scheme of the Central Government which was made available to the Central Government employees after the IV Pay Commission recommendation.
Soon after election the NDA government saw merit in our case and submitted Cabinet Note dated 12/3/15 (reiterating the earlier UPA Cabinet Note dated 20/02/14 (which could not be implemented due to General Elections then). With a view to curtail delay in amending FCI Act 12 A and as per avowed policy of the the Honorable Prime Minister with good intention PMO advised the Food Dept followed up with letters dated 9/9/15 18/9/15 for issuing executive order (more so when the Pension Ministrys 1987 circular is already available but not implemented by the Food Department) in consultation Pension Welfare department rather Amendment to 12 A of FCI Act for delivering quick justice. But the Executives had deliberately made our case to go back to square one for resorting amendment to 12 A of FCI Act citing legal hurdle . In the normal course the Food Department ought to have referred the draft executive order as suggested by Pension department for legal vetting but instead they had sought legal advice for issuing executive orders which is contrary to the spirit of PMO directives. The Food Department now trying to put the blame for the delay on the Finance Ministry where as it is on record that the Honorable Finance Minister had accorded Finance Department of Expenditure Department
