    You are talking of pay parity when taken parallel with another employee, take my case when I was a officer my pay was Rs 10000/ more than when I became a Manager, These anomolies are to be fought tooth and nail. As of now we are shouting sloguns Zindabad but these are going to lay the youngsters MURDA in the long run, youngsters are unable to see the hidden agenda of the managemant they are bent upon rediculing the seniors who are on the verge of retirement at the behest of theirt leaders , give a thought, decision making in not in the hands of any single person as claimed by your union. Oppose such policies and see to it that they are set right, do not just toe along the line , remember you are being toed in the pit and yoiur fall in inevitable. Jotted in the interest of the officers community.

    I would like to request you to remove anomaly in the promotion from
    clerk to officer cadre.

    As due to settlement, I would have got following pay if I was a on 01/05/2015

    Basic …..31,540+ stag increment (8) 10,480+ spe allow rs 1930+ PQP 2010+
    PPP ..1310= 47270

    While I got promotion from 25/02/2013 from clerk to officer cadre
    and my basic would be Rs 45950/-

    Sir, at the time of fitment, it should have been counted PQP+PPP+Sp allow
    to remove anomaly and then one increment for promotion should be given

    1. k p trivedi

      if this happens then who will want to be promoted as there will be very high responsibility under taken after pomotion
