THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The All India Rubber Board Pensioners’ Welfare Association has alleged they are being discriminated against  despite the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations to extend the benefits to the pensioners of the  Rubber  Board and other autonomous bodies  under the Central Government.

In a  memorandum to the Prime Minister , the association said all the Rubber Board employees  should be
entitled  to pension and death -cum- retirement  gratuity  (including family pension, extraordinary pension and computation pension) as provided under the Liberalised  Pension  Rules and the family pension scheme  for Central Government employees.

P N Narayanan Nair,  association president, urged the Centre to discharge its duty  towards all the employees as per rules in the event of the board’s dissolution.  

He said despite Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’ assurance the pensioners will receive all the benefits as per the recommendation of the Pay Panel recommendations, the Centre is yet to issue orders in this regard.

“As the Rubber Board was constituted under the Act passed by Parliament and functions under the Ministry of Commerce, the pensioners and family pensioners are also governed by the Central Civil Service (pension) rules and their pension is being revised as per the Government Order based on Central Pay Commission recommendations as amended from time to time, it has been pointed out. Under  the Centre’s office memorandum last year  in relation to the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, all pensioners  were entitled, said the memorandum.
