sir,Partial & discriminatory implementation of CAT’s Orders for Petitioners only: DOP&PW issued the order dated 26-8-2014 for grant of arrears from 1-1-2006 but restricted the same to the Petitioners alone – a stand which had never been taken by the Government at any stage prior to 15-5-2014. This is in reference to Railway Senior Citizens’ WS, letter and Paras therein: No. RSCWS/ CHD/2014-10 Dated: 4-11-2014- Subject: Re-fixation of pension of all affected Pre-2006 Pensioners from 1-1-2006 as per accepted Recommendations of Sixth Pay Commission & as per CAT judgment in OA 655/2010 – upheld by Supreme Court of India.
I am submitting, for your kind perusal, some points herein, with a hope/which may help in the matter ( Our RPFPWA is also representing on this issue but no results so far):
The Honorable Supreme Courts' Judgment Order dated 02-5-2011, in SLP Appeal (Civil) in W P No.14263 of 2004 in the Honorable High Court of Delhi envisaged –‘ to effect promotion from the date of eligibility and to extend this facility to all who are in similarly placed situation and to give similar treatment, even though they are not the Petitioners ‘. The same principle may kindly be applied herein also .
Honorable Supreme Courts’ Judgment Order dated 17-4-1989…Prem Devi Vs. Delhi Admn.—SCC-SLPL-1989ATLJ 330 (/ 730) - “…. The facts as are not in dispute the case of one of the employees having been decided by the Court it was expected that, without resorting to any of the methods, the other employees identically placed would have been given the same benefits which would have avoided not only un-necessary litigation but also of the waste of time and the movement of files and papers which only waste public time..”
Honorable Supreme Courts’ Judgment /Order in:
Yanamandra Guananada Sharma Vs. Union of India and others— 1991 (2) ATJ 123 (Calcutta)—30-5-1991…“… We have noticed that, in spite of several judgments of the Tribunal and confirmation of the said decisions by the Supreme Court, the respondents, the Union of India are sticking to their own views & are not extending the benefits of decided cases to the persons similarly circumstanced until they are constrained to move the Tribunal. In short, the respondents are indirectly fomenting unnecessary litigations and wasting public money, making it prestige issue. This attitude of the respondents is deplorable and we express our deep displeasure over the same. The respondents as model employers are expected to take reasonable attitude and rational view of the whole thing and to act according to settled law of the land instead of bittering the relationship of the master and servant in this manner. We expect in future, respondents (Govt.) will behave rationally as a model employer instead of driving the desperate employee to take to legal recourse. All decisions of this type should be treated as judgments in rem and be applied to the persons similarly circumstanced…” ”… as we are opinion that the respondents could have prevented this unnecessary litigation by themselves extending the benefits to the applicant as prayed by him, by treating earlier decisions on this issue as judgments in rem…”.
Let the DoP&W of GOI work with BROAD PROSPECTIVE AND WITH POSITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARDS PENSIONERS DULY IMPLEMENTING AND HONORING THE JUDGMENTS/ORDERS OF OUR HONORABLE APES COURT.

HONORED SIR,
1) Let the DoP&W of GOI work with BROAD PROSPECTIVE AND WITH POSITIVE ATTITUDE TOWARDS PENSIONERS DULY IMPLEMENTING AND HONORING THE JUDGMENTS/ORDERS OF OUR HONORABLE APEX COURT IN REGARD TO IMPLEMENTATION OF ITS ORDERS/JUDGMENTS NOT ONLY TO THE PETITIONERS, BUT ALSO TO ALL THE EMPLOYEES/RETIREES WHO ARE IN SIMILARLY PLACED SITUATIONS, EVEN THOUGH THEY MIGHT HAVE NOT BEEN THE PARTIES TO THE PETITIONS. There are several judgments/Orders on this issue by the Honorable Apex Court to protect and safe guard the Fundamental Rights under Article 309.

2)DoP&T the most beneficial instrument of GOI by which all C.G employees are getting justice. Let the GoI reiterate CIRCULARS once in three years TO see that the OMs are scrupulously implemented without their own interpretations.
For Example: THE RAILWAY BOARD RPF REPLY VIDE NO. 2007.SEC.E.RTI.2 , DATED 19.22 SEPT.2008 SHOWED INTERPRETATION OF DoP&T OM . No.22011.4.98-ESTT.D. DATED 12-10-1998 ON THEIR OWN APPLICATIONS, THUS , THE RETIRED EMPLOYEES/ RPF PENSIONERS LOST THEIR PENSION BENEFITS AND IN THEIR PLACES JUNIORS ARE ENJOINING..

Service improvement of retired CCS employees is indeed a praiseworthy initiative. Let the improvement measures reflect its true motivation in letter and spirit. Pensioners of Survey stream in Geological Survey of India, Northern Region, Lucknow, have been deprived of due service benefits on account of merger, financial up gradation and revised MACP. Office order to this effect is issued more than a year ago. Barring GSI, Northern Region, Lucknow other offices of GSI have given this service benefit quite a long time back. The reason of inordinate holding in grant of due service benefits is not known. Competent authorities prefer silence about this log jammed situation. I do pray for early settlement of this impasse.

Sir
The government enacts acts frames rules and issue several instructions to safe guard the intrests of senior citizens. But the officials do not understand the spirit of the rules and ignore the pleas of pensionrs make in ordinate delays in attending their problems. Hence there is an urgent to fix the responsibilty for the delays and stringent action on such people. Afterall the same officials are tommorrows pensioner/sr.citizens and are likely to face similar situations. I quote an examplr here...
I retired on 31.8.2011 while on deputation to UPSC. As per extant rules pension to be fixed on last pay drawn by the parent organisation, (rule86 of railway pension rules&rule49). But railways fixed the pension on notioal pay that i would have drawn in cadre as on 31.08.2011. So far they have not revised the pension citing unconnectedvrules ignoring the CPO direction which is based on railway board instructions dt.25.9.1989. Nearly 3 years passed. It is nothing but harrasment. There such cases in abundance.hence fix responsibility for inaction/wrong action.

Date: 19-11-2014
To
Honorable Justice Sri. A.K. Mathur,
Chairman,
VII Central Pay Commission.
Honored SIR,
Railway Protection Force Pensioner’s Welfare Association, South Central Railway, Secunderabad heartily welcome your good honor and all the other VII CPC officials to Hyderabad. RPFPWA founded in the year 2011 is having around 250 members and serving the pensioner’s problems/grievances and other pending pension matters through RPF and SC Railway administrative officers.
Sir,
It is submitted that the RPF now has emerged as one of the Super Force in dealing with all the matters appertaining to Indian Railways, our Force Personnel are being taken on deputation to work in various Ministries/Departments. Railway Protection Force (RPF) is one of the Central Armed Police Force charged with protecting the Indian Railways with certain legal powers under various Acts, investigate cases, and prosecute the accused in the Courts of Law. In addition, it is submitted that RPF duties and functions over Indian Railways/or on any other duties outside Railways, are same as that of other CPOs (Central Police Organizations/CPMFs (Central Para-Military Forces) in the assigned jurisdiction like that of BSF, CRPF, CISF, ITBT, RAF.
The RPF functions under the supervision, control and command of the Ministry of Railways through its Director General, RPF. The duties of the Railway Protection Force include: To do all conducive means for the free movement of the railways; Protection and safeguarding of railway property; Protection and safeguarding of passenger, their belongings and passenger areas. The erstwhile British Raj ‘Company Police’ evolved into present RPF in 1957 passing through "Watch and Ward" phase from 1872-1954, and as "Railway Security Force" from 1954-1956,and expanding with certain legal powers. For maintenance of an effective and disciplined Force, the RPF Rules and Regulations, The RPF Act, 1957 was accordingly modified for carrying out the purposes of the Act, and the RPF Rules 1987.
Sir,
It is submitted that while the RPF functions under Ministry of Railways, the other CPOs/CPMFs works under Ministry of Home Affairs. Though RPF is also a Uniformed Force, the VI CPC made out recommendations for RPF separately and for the CPOs / CPMFs separately. The same were implemented by the concerned Ministries from 01-01-1996.However, in later years, the GOI extended the same pay scales of CPOs/CPMFs and the Ministry of Railways implemented the same to the RPF as that of other CPOs/CPMFs from the date of the Orders. Due to this different dates of implementations, the RPF Pensioners who retired prior to 2006, (between 1986-2006) are not getting the Grade Pay as that of RPF Pensioners who retired after 01-01-2006. While some of the pre-2006 retiree Inspectors get Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- and some others get Rs.4200/-, and so on for other ranks also.
Sir,
It is submitted that your good honor may kindly consider to recommend the same pay scales/Grade Pay, etc., and other perks similarly as that of other CPOs/CPMFs, so that the RPF Officials/Pensioners shall also be treated at par with that of other Central Govt. Armed Forces of the Union of India, and also get the same benefits right from the date of implementation of the VII CPC, for this act of kindness, we shall ever be grateful and oblige.
Most respectfully and humbly submitted for favor of kind consideration.
Yours faithfully,
(V.SESHADRI)
PRESIDENT
