Subject: Fixation of Pay - Maj Gens
To: gchander@gmail. com
My dear Chander,
I had been to CDA(O) for some other work and happened to meet Mr Venkatesan, the DCDA looking after pensions. He has informed me that they are fixing the pay of all pre 96 Maj Gens as of 1.1.96 notionally at Rs 20000. So the pension would be Rs 10000. He tried to explain that this is arrived at looking at the seniormost Brigs then stepping up the pay of Maj Gens to give benefit of one increment etc but was generally incoherent in his 'logic'. I told him that this is not in accordance with the SC judgment but obviously he is just 'his master's voice'.
This is for your information and further necessary action in the contempt hearing. We will be getting peanuts as decided by the babus - the sons-in-law of the country who are above even God. What is mere SC?
