Government to provide all benefits to the member of retiring staff on the retirement day.
Hyderabad: The Telangana state government has issued strict orders to altogether departments regarding treatment of retiring government employee.
All retirement profits must be paid on the day of the leaving and a car should be set to drop the retiring employee home with self-respect on her or his last working day, irrespective of the cadre, the government has ordered.
Retired staffs have complained that their pensions and leaving benefits are not paid and they are ended to run around offices for months and even years to claim it.
Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who go over the issue of post-retirement profits to employees with officers of the finance department newly, took a serious view of sectors not complying with these orders despite repeated reminders and being ‘insensitive’ towards retiring workers.
“We should be profound towards retiring employees. The Employee have rendered over 30 years of service. When they give up work and leave the job, we should treat them with respect and self-respect. Be it Group-I officers or Group-IV staff like junior accountants, junior assistants, or office attendants, the respective sections in all sections should bid a warm farewell, hand over all stepping down benefits and arrange a car to drop them home with self-respect,” Mr Rao said.
Following the Chief Minister’s guidelines, the finance principal secretary K. Ramakrishna Rao gives out instructions to all departments in this respect.
The order stated: “Every crown of the department should take on the work of preparing pension papers six months earlier the date on which a government servant is due to give up work.”
In this honor, the government has issued instructions time and over for adherence to the above orders. Even after such orders, it is brought to the notice of the government that the ratio of cases received before the date of leaving is very little which is causing needless delay in payment of pension to the senior citizen even in cases where there are no punitive cases awaiting them.
“As per the instructions of CM, it is once again reiterated to comply with the existing orders and forward pension papers six months earlier the retirement so as to ensure that the government servant gets terminal/pensionary profits on last working day. All HoDs may take essential steps on priority for the sum of all the pensionary profits on the retirement day and also the position for a car to drop the retiring employee at home with dignity.”
