Today, CAT Ernakulam took up our OA 346/18 for arguments. All the Central government pensioners are getting pension @50% of their last pay drawn now irrespective of their date of retirement. But it is not applied in the case of BSNL staff retired before 2006 though all are covered by the same CCS Pension Rule 1972. As a test case, we filed an application against this injustice before CAT Ernakulam. We want that all BSNL pensioners retired before 2006 should also get their pension re-fixed at the rate of 50% of their last pay drawn with all consequential benefits. P S Ramankutty, All India President of AIBSNLPWA is the first applicant.
The case was listed and postponed again and again several times. Finally, today the case was taken up for arguements. Government pleader argued that the new orders are not applicable to IDA pensioners. Our lawyer Adv. Sreeraj countered the same effectively.
Finally, the Judge reserved the case for decision. While going through the arguments and orders, if he desires so he may ask some clarification from the advocates. Otherwise he may pronounce his judgment on a later date which is not declared.
Anyway, arguments are over. 
That is a progress.
