Sub : – Non-payment of provisional pension and leave encashment – case of Shri G. Srinivasa Rao, SSO(P), Khammam, Telangana circle – reg.
Ref: – CGM Telangana letter no.TT/SCT/FCC/GS/GMTD-KHM/2019-20 dated at Hyderabad the 21.04.2020.
With reference to the letter cited above, we would like to draw your kind attention to the subject captioned above, for favour of needful intervention.
Shri G. Srinivasa Rao, SSO(P), Khammam, has retired under VRS-2019. However, his payment of exgratia and other terminal benefits have not been settled till date. This is due to a complaint that, the official had produced a false caste certificate.
In this connection, the CGM Office, Telangana, has already written to the Sr.GM (Estt.), BSNL Corporate Office, seeking clarification, whether Leave Encashment could be paid to Shri G.Srinivasa Rao. Thereafter, the CGM Office, Telangana, vide letter cited under reference, has once again sought clarification from the Corporate Office, whether provisional pension and leave encashment could be paid to Shri G. Srinivasa Rao. In this regard, it is very important to note one of the contents of the CGM, Telangana, letter no.1-15/2019- PAT(BSNL)Part-1 dated 30.01.2020, wherein it is stated that, they had already written a letter to the complainant for the confirmation of his complaint (owning or disowning the charge that Shri G.Srinivasa Rao had produced a false caste certificate) and that, the complainant has still not given any reply to the query.
From the above mentioned facts, one can understand that, the payment of exgratia, as well as the other terminal benefits of Shri G. Srinivasa Rao have been with held, based on a frivolous complaint from someone. It is needless for us to mention here, how much financial sufferings and mental agony that a retiree would be undergoing due to the non-payment of exgratia, pension, leave encashment and other terminal benefits.
Keeping the above mentioned facts into consideration, I request you to kindly revisit this matter and to issue necessary instructions to the CGM, Telangana, for the following:-
a) Immediate payment of provisional pension to Shri G. Srinivasa Rao, pending settlement of the dispute regarding his caste certificate.
b) Immediate payment of Leave Encashment to the official.
I fervently request you to kindly take the needful action, with the view to mitigate the sufferings of the aggrieved official.
