The authentic reports of EPFO indicate the meagre range of the UNLIVEABLE PENSION being provided to the EPS 95 pensioners as given in transperancy
Exhausted of all sorts of efforts by countless memorandums , non violent street protests in dist places , state capitals all over the country and New Delhi time to time over the past more than 10 years , the EPS 95 pensioners having not received the necessitated relief against the genuine demands of pension , are coming to New Delhi again from the different places of the country and camping there in December 2023 with the firm decision of DO or DIE to seek justice from your honble govt on the grievances of pension of EPS 95 .
Does this MOST UNDESIRABLE STEP of SENIOR CITIZEN – EPS 95 PENSIONERS of OUR DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY with a service of about 25 to 40 years who are supposed to
take rest living in peace at their age , travelling a long distance to New Delhi from nook and corner of their places in old age with physical ailments for seeking a liveable pension for survival under better conditions warrants is a matter to be kindly taken note of it with seriousness and sensitiveness by the honble govt that deserves for immediate decision in the interest of all these EPS 95 pensioners valuing their prime life contribution of service for the overall growth of nation with requisite contribution to pension fund as well , and above all given the concern of humanity that matters much.
The pension issue of EPS 95 has stood unresolved even after your honble govt completing 2 terms in power the assurance of which was given by the leaders of BJP , the video recording of which is held with the EPS pensioners.
Kindly let the honble govt settle the pension issues with no further delay before it is too late happening any untoward incidents any where in travell / movement of protests for justice .
They now have lost all their patience waiting for a liveable pension to survive their life with some economic security and human dignity.
So let further inaction kindly not be continued to prompt them to undertake long distance travel to New Delhi given their old age condition with health issues for survival
that needs to be met with only by a regular source of liveable pension on which they depend .
The EPS 95 pensioners surviving with unrest are continuously looking at your honble govt for the economic security by a liveable pension at minimum on the present valuation of recommendation of Koshiyari committee report 147 and fair pension on last drawn actual wages with requisite contribution to the pension fund relaxed of the conditions of cut off date and joint option for higher pension in the context that the conditions of higher pension on actual wages are all impractical and non operative obviously because many many companies / factories are not in existence by closure and loss/destruction of the records of provident fund contribution statements over the long period of time or non- accessibility of the records as demanded by the EPFO .
Sensing the burning critical life of EPS 1995 pensioners the honble govt may kindly take quick decision on the genuine demands of pension issue placed to prevent their risky movement in old age condition encountered of diabetics, high blood pressure and cardiac problem for travell to New Delhi .
We have kept hope with the honble govt for the kind action of the honble NDA Govt towards well-being of EPS 95 pensioners in order that they happen to enliven their life with pleasure getting smile on their faces in coming days of festivals and opening of Sri RAM TEMPLE at Ayodhya !
With high regards ,
