Two days after English daily reported about ex-SAI employees awaiting their revised pension,the pensioners are still waiting for any word from SAI officials. The pensioners are due to get the arrears of the last two years apart from the revised pensions. While the serving employees of SAI are getting the revised salary and other benefits since September,2008,the retired employees are still waiting for their turn.
“We have written several times to the concerned authorities but nothing has been done. Even after the reports got published in some newspapers,we have not heard any word from SAI authorities. It is our legitimate right and we will fight for this,” shared a retired employee on the condition of anonymity.
Adding further he said that the arrears for the last two years are also pending and they are hoping that the matter will be resolved soon. “The arrears are also due and we don’t know what is causing the delay in the process. We don’t expect such callousness towards this matter from the SAI authorities,” said the retired employee.
Anoher employee shared that it was only after the reports that he came to know about the pending arrears. “SAI has never approached us in this case and most of us don’t know about the matter. It is very unfortunate that we have not got the arrears and revised pension,” shared the employee.
