I feel having served till 31/12/2007 and having taken the new scale as per 6th PC from 1/1/06 to 31/12/07, it is not fair to deny the full pension who have retired till 31/08/2008. What crime has been done by the central government employees, to deny the full pension. Is there any other way to convince the government to grant full pension those who have retired after drawing the new scales as per 6th PC and retired before 01/09/2008. I read in that many affected pensioners have sent their grivences to the anomoly committee formed by the government. Can any body give some information about this.
