T Sampath Iyengar: Some time back there was a query in the Chronicle regarding the eligibility of the pensioners who have retired post after April 93, for the difference of salary, on the same principle as demand for recalculation. As the salaries were revised from 8-92 for class III and for Cl. I from 4-93, just as Gratuity was allowed from 8-94 but subsequently given, may I know if this group can legitimately claim difference of salary from 8-92 to 4-93. Some one kindly throw light.

C H Mahadevan: If M C Jain and similarly placed post Aug 92 retiree Class I officers are to be fixed on revised salary from 1/8/1992,by logical implication all Class I officers who entered the class before 1/8/1992 and continued in service till their retirement thereafter will also have to be given refixation of salary from 1/8/1992 and arrears for eight months will have to be paid. But LIC will not extend the benefit automatically.We have to knock at the doors of the judiciary.
