Dt 09/02/24.

To,

Sri Narendra Modi ji, 

Hon. Prime Minister of India, New Delhi. 

Respected sir,

Please go through the following points which made ill fate of old aged EPS Pensioners and do justice.

The government has already increased its contribution of NPS of Central government employees from 10 percent to 14 percent. 

The  government has also announced increase of NPS of public sector bank employees from 10 percent to 14 percent of banks contribution. 

Where as the government is not ready to accept the Koshiary committee report for increase of government contribution to 8.33 percent from 1.16 percent to EPS pensioners. 

The wonder is the government is not paying even 1.16 percent on above RS 15000/- salary in respect of EPS pensioners who worked for decades in PSU’s. for the development of the country. 

The government has removed ceiling on family pension of RS 9284/-  for PS Banks. 

Where as the government imposes a ceiling on EPS pensioners salary of RS 15000/- for the purpose of fixation of EPS pension. 

The government says  the family pension of PS banks is *paltry* and increased to 30 percent of last drawn salary. This would result in increase of family pension to RS 30000/- to Rs 35000/- . p.m. 

While the government which was in opposition during 2013  fought for increase of minimum pension to RS 3000/-  is now  not ready to increase the minimum pension from RS 1000/- saying that no funds.

Further the government argues in Supreme Court against the poor old  aged EPS pensioners with the EPS pensioners hard earned mony. 

Why The government is very rigid on EPS pensioners while kind enough at government employees and PS Bank employees, it is a thousand dollar question. 

When the government pensioner gets RS 100000/- as pension, how far it is justified getting RS 1000/- to RS 3000/- as EPS pension. 

How far it is justified to still drag the old aged EPS pensioners to the courts for the legal genuine justified reason when the matter was settled in various high courts in thousands of writ petitions and in supreme Court in eleven appeals.

How far it is justified to delay the cases of EPS pensioners in high courts and supreme Court for years. 

The minimum pension of EPS pensioners  RS 1000/- :

Worth less than 10 punds, 

Worth Less than 15 dollers. 

What can be bought with these RS 1000/-. 

Wether such ill fate of old aged EPS pensioners do not tarnish the image of our country before the world. 

There are some reports in the news that India stands 40 th rank out of 43 ranks in pension payments. This situation is purely because of RS 1000/- of minimum EPS pension and putting ceiling on wages for the purpose of EPS Pension.

If such is the position how the world countries recognise India as developing country. Wether the image of India do not tarnish among world nations.

Wether Sri Narendra Modi PM of India who is doing wonders and becoming world famous and expected to become a world leader is not aware of such ill fate of EPS pensioners or the matter is mis guided to him by the concerened. 

I would not like to see the Prime Minister of INDIA without  Sri Narendra Modi ji. But I can’t give a guarantee that every EPS pensioner feels the same who may vote against the present party  which is ignoring the ill fate of old aged EPS pensioners. 

The government is taking care of most of the serious issues neglected by the previous governments for the decades, but it is not known why it is not considering the reasons for defeat of the party posts with  as little as less than one thousand votes in many places. Why it can not be attributed to be a reason of un happyness among the EPS pensioners. 

Why the party should lose for a small ignorance. 

Hope The CBT members will definitely  look in to the matter and ill fate of EPS pensioners and settle  once for all. 

In view of the above I submit the following for your kind consideration and to take a decision immediately. 

To Sanction EPS pension on actual salary as per RC GUPTA judgment to all pre 01/09/14 EPS pensioners immediately. 

To sanction minimum EPS pension of RS 10,000/-. 

To link EPS pension with price Index. 

To revise EPS pension for every Five years. 

To Allow Medical facilities to EPS pensioners. 

To pay 8.33 percent contribution on salary to Pension Fund. 

To sanction RS 5000/-p.m. to the non-members.

Hoping  for the best. 

G Narayana.

An EPS PENSIONER.
