My name is YR Suri and I am fighting for some justified constitutional rights for employees of Public Sector Undertakings (PSU’s) like Indian Drugs and Pharmaceuticals Limited (IDPL). Every day, it is getting difficult to defend the employee’s rights. This task would be simplified if there were a unification of criteria, there is currently discrimination in taking a decision and applying policies on issues that I believe are unfair, unethical and totally disproportionate. For example, the same benefits of wage revisions are denied to people with a voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) or retired employees of IDPL which are given to a few of their choice in the same organisation.
Constitutional Provisions are being denied intentionally by the Government of India (GoI) and the Indian judiciary to the class of citizens who claim their rights as per set rules and guidelines formed and implemented on innocent citizens. However, in newspapers, we see Constitution Day is celebrated.
I am citing a burning example below:
The undersigned on behalf of thousands of employees wants to know where equality and justice is for those relieved during their middle age.
To implement the decision of Sh. AB Vajpayee the then PM of India “CCEA in its meeting held on 4.2.1999, decided to close down IDPL ( A giant Drug Manufacturing Public Sector Undertaking of Government of India) to attract private players in the pharmaceutical sector. At the dawn of 2002, under the threat of retrenchment and ultimate closure of IDPL every employee of IDPL relieved during 2003’ from the services of IDPL (A Giant Drug Manufacturing PSU of GOI) calculating their service dues on un- revised pay scales of 1988-90. Most of the employees were in the age group of 35-45 when they lost their means of earnings, their status and their routine’ the juncture when one plan for a shelter of their own and other social liabilities of their growing children and their dependent parents. A skimpy amount ranging to Rs.200, 000-Rs.400, 000 was calculated as terminal benefits.
As per provisions in “Salient Features of Revised VR Scheme 2002 of IDPL point No.3-xvi” reads with point no.3 of Department of Public Enterprises,(DPE) Ministry of Heavy Industry, Government of India (DPE’s O.M. No. 2(32)97-DPE (WC) GL-XXII) dated 05-05-2000 “reads that Ex-gratia will be recalculated on the basis of revised pay scales implemented subsequent to VRS/VSS and the difference will be paid”.
During 2009’ GOI implemented wage revisions in IDPL; after implementation of wage revisions in IDPL we represented for extending the benefits of revised pay scales as per provisions in Revised VRS 2002 of IDPL and as per provisions in DPE guidelines of GOI for recalculation in this regard.
Concerned ministry and the management refused to abide by their own decision and policies. We approached Indian Judiciary “THE GUARDIAN of DECISION and POLICIES” for impartial justice in the matter for extending the benefits of revised pay scales as per set rules and guideline of GOI, to the class of employees those relieved during 2003 but regret to mention, Judiciary gave support to GOI and refused to see the contents, facts and circumstances of the petition and back-out from their own verdicts on DECISION and POLICIES and dismissed the petition. Hence err in deciding the matter intentionally, which is bad in the eyes of law.
Though, above benefits of revised pay scales must be extended uniformly as per natural law and also as per provisions in the implemented policies by the concerned ministry, but are refused. Hence in the interest of impartial justice as per Constitutional provisions, if Modi Ji is really working for the Corruption Free India as the Head of Socialist, Sovereign, Democratic, Republic (SSDR) of India’ I request the concerned ministries to intervene the matter;
Therefore in order to be able to cope with the inequalities, I beg, I implore and implore to their lordships that a unification of criteria at the time of deciding a petition by going through its contents and circumstances (instead seeing the cover of the petition) is obligatory for all. Hence I pray before the Indian Judiciary (CJI of Supreme Court of India) to re-open the Curative Petition (C) No.215 of 2016 for prudent justice and also the management of IDPL along with concerned ministry to adhere to the matter of IDPL VRS & Retired employees for implementation of every clause/rules, decision and policies framed in the revised VRS 2002 of IDPL instead of a few of their choice.
