Subject: RE: NDTV PROGRAMME ON OROP - RESPONSE BY MEMBERS - "REPORT MY SIGNAL" - EMAIL 441/2010 - (H to Z-1) - 13 SEP 2010 (USA CT)
like most of you I also watched the NDTV prog on OROP.
I have only the follwing arguments to support our case –
1 OROP is a commitment of the successive govts and the civil servants should find the ways and means to implement this rather than put legal and other obstacles to it.
2 when the lady gave the argument that OROP is tenable for the Secretaries to the govt of India because they get fixed pay and not to others because they have a scale of pay and it would tentamount to revising their salaries from retrospective effect ( when they were not in service ), our argument shoud have been---- aren't the ''fixed pays of the old retired secretaries also being revised retrospectively ( when they were not in service ) to enable them to get the same pension as th recently retired ones? How is that legally tenable?
