DR DISCRIMINATION


In his post Sri Venugopalan has stated that WP No.6667/1997 filed by Sri Asthana in Jaipur HC was for parity in DR between pre-Aug.97 and post-Aug.97 pensioners. It is not so. In fact, when this Writ was filed in the year 1997, the discrimination in DR formula had not arisen at all. The Government Notification dt. 21-6-2000 providing for 100% neutralisation in DR for post-1-8-97 pensioners and denying same for pre-1-8-97 ones brought the discrimination.

Sri Asthana!s Writ Petition No.6667/1997 was for parity in DR formula between employees and pensioners from inception of Pension Scheme i.e.1-11-1993. His contention is that Pensioners and Employees were not paid DR/DA at same rates. My view on this is different and according to me there is no case at all.
