  1. Honourable Secretary, Mines; Mr Balvinder Kumar, please arrange to do the needful for justified settlement of my pension revision on MACP. 3% increment in pay fixation on first ACP for pay and pension revision on MACP has been paid to my colleagues at GSI, Nagpur. Departmental approval is there, still the PAO has not given this pay increment as per his personal opinion. He has sought clarification from the COA, GSI, Kolkata. Interventions from Additional Secretary and Dy Secretary (Admn) , Department of Expenditure has been ignored. Similarly, directives of Assistant CGA and CPAO have also been ignored. DOPT has said to settle this issue, in case any clarification is required from DOPT, DOPT will clarify this issue. Four years, twelve registered PG Portal grievances and many interventions from distinguished authorities could not resolve this stalemate. I most humble beg to draw your kind attention please, so that I am not deprived of natural justice.
