    What about the teacher pensioners of Central Universities and State Universities ? No orders were issued to them, even after one and half a month. They are a neglected lot and these Senior citizens are treated in a partisan manner. How long they should wait ?

      State Govt is not implementing as per the directions of the UGC. in the state of Tamil Nadu. They give notional effect from the date as announced by the UGC but willing to effect financial commitments w.e.f. 01-Nov 2017. No announcement for the pensioners who draw UGC scales. Better of the order is passed earlier.

        Last Preference is given to the pensioners. Ministry of Human Resource Development has issued orders on 2-11-2017 for serving University Teachers, but no orders for University Teacher pensioners. Only after receipt of the orders from MHRD, Tamilnadu Govt. can act.

            Does the government want the votes of only govt. Staff and teachers in the 2019 election? What's the mistake made by others. Why others are not even cared. Too much attention to corruption. But no insistence of Minimum Wages Act to unorganized sector. Minimum wages fixation has not considered 7th pay commission recommendations. Why?

                Ministry of Human Resource Development has issued orders for serving University teachers in their order no. 1-7/2015-UII(1) dt 2-11-2017. Even after 20 days, no orders issued for University Teacher pensioners under UGC scales. Based on these orders, each State Govt. has to issue orders for the State Universities, separately for serving teachers and then to pensioners. The authorities involved should bestow humanitarian considerations in the case of pensioners National pensioners day is celebrated on 17th Dec every year, because of a judgement of Supreme Court, wherein it was pronounced that Pension is not a bounty or Gratis but is a remuneration for the past services rendered. Hope the authorities concerned will realize and issue orders before 17-12-2017
