  1. Why this stepmotherly treatment for pensioners of Autonomous bodies & especially ICAR pensioners! The ICAR has done wonderful service to farming community.

  2. I appeal to Hon’ramble Prime Minister & Finance Minister to look into the basic needs of the pensioners & their limited resources which unethically overlooked and just torturing the pensioners. Morally the pensioners should be viewed more with humanitarian feelings instead of as inhuman as compared to employees of ICAR in service and other central government pensioners which is the first time when BJP is always takes care of government employees under the leadership of most respected Shri A.B. Vajpaee the then PRIME MINISTER even by Congress govt. This sort of inaction with inhuman manner with ICAR pensioners may surely bring unpopularity as a whole. This should be addressed immediately on PRIORITY without any further delay.

  3. Can the PPO OFFICE OR HON’BLE
    MINISTER OF FINANCE CAN APPRISE TIME FRAME FOR REDRESS ALL OF SUCH AGONY! SO LONG!

  4. The delaying tactics of ICAR towards the payment of DR to ICAR pensioners/family pensioners can not be appreciated in any way.

  5. Throwing a ball in the courtyard of finance ministry by ICAR for approval etc is also a way to make delay in action.

  6. The inordinate delay in the grant of D. R.& implementation of 7th CPC benefit to pensioners/family pensioners of autonomous bodies including those of ICAR needs immediate action for redressal of their true sufferings, particularly when the same have already been released to their central govt. counterparts.

  7. It is highly irregular, irresponsible, inhuman, no sympathy towards the poor pensioners, family pensioners of ICAR (Autonomous body) left by step mother treatment on behalf of the Finance Ministry not granting necessary funds towards payment of revised pension on 7th pay commission announcement also DA to ICAR it pensioners Family pensioners is arbitrary, regretted, inction of Central Government against law. Therefore, keeping in mind growing popularity of BJP in country the Prime Minister Narendra Modiji may initiate early action to release need funds to ICAR in the above regards is requested.

  8. Hon’bless PM Shri Modi ji may personally intervene in the issue being dragged resulting harassment & financial loss to ICAR PENSIONERS which is the first time on the regime of BJP that too with the greatest popularity. We don’t understand the logic behind this to delay to issue the necessary notification to ICAR as FA DARE expressed his helpless as M/o Finance approval is yet to be issued.

  9. The middle of May has come and still ICAR is waiting for the reply. The financial crisis is only for pensioners. CSIR has already given all the benefits to pensioners and our organization ICAR is sleeping.

  10. It is rather deplorable the attitude of the Govt towards it’s pensioners and family pensioners. A welfare state resorting such activities putting the very senior citizens under pressure is not praiseworthy. Many of them would not be able to enjoy the benefits as fate overtake them The FM should consider all aspects and release funds to meet the expenses so that ICAR could issue orders and release the definite to the pensiobers/family pensioners. Holding the benefits on the plea of assessment of the Institution is not right as it can be done any time.

  11. I would say that it is very depressing for the pensioners of Autonomous bodies except CSIR to wait endlessly for some benefits accruing to them by way of DA and 7 CPC. May be the demonstration could be preventing the government from releasing the amount needed. But the pensioners are not the right choice.

  12. It is really a sad commentary on the working of the most efficient govt.under the dynamic and vibrant leadership of our honourable prime minister.Action on the issue of the awarding the benefits of the 7th pay commission to the pensioners of the autonomous bodies has been pending with the finance ministry since last March.This needs to be redressed on priority as this has caused enough hardships to the retired employees of ICAR

  13. May I request the concerned authorities to fix up at least / approximate the month & year to pay the 7th CPC recommended pension to the poor & pity retired scientists of ICAR ?

    1. It is said that the ICAR scientists have to generate their own funds to
      meet their pension in future. OK It may be applicable /possible for those who are in service as Scientists, National Fellows & National
      Professors ,provided, if the Got. find/ fix up some schemes for them.
      Whereas ,is it possible to apply this criteria to the retired scientists to
      pay the pension for them ? I am to say that there is no source for the retired scientists to generate funds/ money for ICAR and get back as their pension.

      I request the concerned to take action to pay the pension as per norms of 7th CPC to Retired Scientists of ICAR.

  14. It is unfortunate that ICAR has not yet issued notification extending the 7 cpc and 2 DRs to its pensioners/fam.pensioners even after receiving clarification from the DOPPW and MOF that the Administration ofm the central AB can taske decision in this regard since they have already communicated implementation of the same to central AB also.

  15. Sir,
    May I humbly, request the Secretary (DARE) & Director General (ICAR) to propose to set up a cell, to look into the welfare of the ICAR retired
    Scientific Staff ? For example , I am a ICAR retired scientist,is not at all
    individually informed about the position of the implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations on the revised Pension & DA with effect from 01-07-2016 , either by the ICAR or by the concerned Director.
    (for me is the Director CIBA Chennai ).

  16. I fully agreed with the comments of my fellow pensioners.It is said that the ICAR scientists have to generate their own funds to
    meet their pension in future. OK It may be applicable /possible for those who are in service as Scientists, National Fellows & National
    Professors ,provided, if the Got. find/ fix up some schemes for them.
    Whereas ,is it possible to apply this criteria to the retired scientists to
    pay the pension for them ? I am to say that there is no source for the retired scientists to generate funds/ money for ICAR and get back as their pension.Moreover we ICAR employees are dealing with Small & Marginal farmers only.

    I request the concerned to take action to pay the pension as per norms of 7th CPC to Retired Scientists of ICAR.

  17. From time to ICAR Institutse have developed so many technologies in all fields of Agriculture such as our Fisheries Institute conducted research on development of Fisheries. Raised Trout, Mahaseer, Mirror Carp Fish etc. stocks by artificial breeding. During my service tennure, the fry were stocked in natural water bodies in presence of concerned authorities State Departments with out having any payment. As I remember in Kashmir one of the IVRI Centre developed Vaccine for the sheep and the said vacine were
    also given to the State Sheep Husbandry Departments with out any cost. Now the ICAR Pensioners has to raise the funds for the implement of 7th CPC ?

  18. Sir,on enquiring about non credit of my old pension without DA w.e.f. January 2016 onwards,SBI Vikaspuri,New Delhi-18, where my pension is regularly received w.e.f.01/08/2011, SBI,VP replied that no credit was available from I.A.R.I.The pension was later on credited on same day @ old pension without DA payable on 01/07/16 & 01/01/2017.

  19. Sir, Since finance ministry and adm.min. will not issue separate orders for autonomous body pensioners as no orders were issued during 5th & 6th CPC for pensioners. So every pensioners of autonomous body of ICAR should go and meet/let him know who is responsible for not clearing this issue to our beloved PM those who stay near by Delhi since PM wanted to look in good eyes to his pensioners who gets very poor pension in this hardship days specially pre-06 pensioners and our PM wishes to offer like one rank one pay to neglected pensioners of pre-6th Pay commission.

  20. I am a disable person and a deponent family pensioner of ICAR
    and that is the main income of my family
    Therefor i like to know the status of implementation 7th CPC

  21. What is the difference between central govt employees and autonomous employees. Both are same category and doing different kinds of work.whether the central employees are born in silver spoon and what is return getting from those employees to govt exchequer why there is a disparity between central employees and other employees in central govt. The responsible for making disparity between central govt employees and other employees is the predecessor of this govt. In my opinion autonomous employees return is more than central govt employees.eg what is the profit from postal dept to govt of India which is migure or minus they are receiving all benefits of 7 pay benefit. Therefore.I kindly request the finance minister to look into the matter favourable and issue early order to all employees those getting govt salary without any disparity. I also request Sri Amith Sha Ji please see and resolve the problem immediately otherwise message has already spreading that the BJP govt is doing nothing to govt employees

  22. a land mark judgement delivered by the Supreme Court of India on 01 07 2015, Civil Appeal no. 1123 of 2015 has gone unnoticed and except for a brief letter from Shri S R Sen Gupta to IBA, no other union has taken any steps. The salient features of the judgement:
    1. The bench has authoritatively ruled that Pension is a right and the payment of it does not depend upon the discretion of the Government. Pension is governed by rules and a Government Servant coming within those rules is entitled to claim pension.
    2.The judgement has recognised that the revision of pension and revision of pay scales are INSEPARABLE.
    3.The bench has reiterated that on revision the Basic pension cannot be less than 50% of the Basic Pension in the minimum of the Pay Band in the revised scale corresponding to the pre-revised scale.
    4.The government CANNOT take a plea of financial burden to deny legitimate dues of the pensioners.
    5.The Government SHOULD AVOID unwarranted litigation and not to encourage any litigation for the sake of litigation.
    6. When pension is upheld to be a right and NOT A BOUNTY, as a corollary to the averment that revision of pension and revision of pay scales are INSEPARABLE, upgradation of pension is also a RIGHT AND NOT A BOUNTY.
    THE JUDGEMENT IS BASED ON THE DECISION ON D S NAKARA CASE.
    The above details are available in the latest issue of Canara Bank Retired Officer’s Association Circular no 3/2016 dated 1st August 2015.
    The judgement is very clear and I wonder how no one has noticed the important aspects and why no one has taken up the matter with the IBA/Govt.
    Why no one has reacted to the judgement is surprising and perplexing.
    While agitation is on why can’t we take recourse to court also as Supreme Court advocates are offering their services. One ruling by SC that govt can’t deny pension for lack of funds regarding OROP every year and VRS case
    This case may also be taken at the Law and bring ICAR to court

  23. Those who are in service now are going to retire one day or other. they will face same music as we facing now . if they do good to us indirectly they are benefited . so better you realise now and help poor fasmilyprnsioners

  24. Those who are in service now are going to retire one day or other. they will face same music as we facing now . if they do good to us indirectly they are benefited . so better you realise now and help poor fasmilyprnsioners so it is requsted that concerned authorities may do thr favour

  25. Sir,
    May I humbly, request the Secretary (DARE) & Director General (ICAR) to look into the welfare of the ICAR retired
    Scientific Staff ? I am a ICAR retired scientist,is not at all
    individually informed about the position of the implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations on the revised Pension & DA with effect from 01-07-2016 , either by the ICAR or by the concerned Director.

    The inordinate delay in the grant of D. R.& implementation of 7th CPC benefit to pensioners/family pensioners of autonomous bodies including those of ICAR needs immediate action for redressal of their true sufferings, particularly when the same have already been released to their central govt. counterparts.

  26. It is very sad and unfortunate to say that even after one and half year have over but the dearness relief(2) and 7 cpc benefits were not extended to the ICAR pensioners/f.pensioners. The CG and ICAR are playing with the future of these pensioners especially those pensioners who have reached their fag-end of life. The present condition is that no body is bothered to think about their grievances even though these are the legitmate rights of the pensioners. What is uae of having a very much strong govt. at the centre! Only God can help us

  27. Will the ICAR be kind enough to extend the benifit of 7th pay commission and DA and medical allowance to the pensioners and family pensioners.
    Because ICAR had adopted mutatis mutandis Govt. of India all service Rules i.e;FR,SR,CCS Conduct Rules etc.
    While Govt. Of India departments were shifted to ICAR as was the case with CPRI.
    more over ICAR is a state or authority in terms of Artical 12,14,16,19 and 226 of Constitution of India as per Supreme Court judgement of 31.12.1986.

    Further ICAR had adopted the Govt. Of India CCS(Pension)Rules 1972 which clearly find mention in “Audit Manual”of ICAR.

    Moreover as per judgement dated 1.7.2015 of Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 1123 of 2015.
    Pension is a right and the payment of it does not depend upon discreation of Govt.
    And that revision of pension and revision of pay scale are inseparable.
    And financial burdon can not be excuse.
    And upgradation of pension is also a right and not bounty.

    ICAR has its Executive Council where the decision can very easily be taken for pension to the employees. There is no need to seek clarification from Govt. It is lame excuse that some clarification has been sought from the Govt.

    Since in service employees have been paid the benifit of 7th pay commission why the pensioners being deprived without any feasible reasioning.

  28. In the face book it has been flashed that the Honourable Minister of Agriculture has approved our pension related file . let our pensioners take note of this for information and share this news among us

  29. The Government of the day is denying the right of pensioners on one pretext or other. The pensioners are being treated badly. Pension is a right guaranteed under the Constitution. Sooner or later the Government ought to grant the same to the pensioners why to delay and trouble the pensioners at the evening of their lives.

  30. Yes, it is the tendency of the present Govt. to delay to extend any benefit, especially to pensioners who are running in their last stage of their lives. Even the ICAR is not showing any interest, especially the present DG who is the Secretary to GOI who is having the statutory powers.. It is very unfortunate that now a days the life has become very difficult, the pensioners are denied their legitmate rights.

  31. All the central autonomous organisations employees are classified as second class.The CG employees are the only priorities of this govt.This is evident that the revised pay,pension and dearness relief have not been released.In some cases,the same are kg released on piecemeal basis.These attitude have become extremely rigid and harmful to the employees of central autonomous organisations.

  32. Has the arrears for retired iari pensioners released or not can any body clarify this. Kasi pathi, son of Dr v v chenulu
