- It is rumoured by some of the persons that nothing is done by PRPA or Sunil Kumar in the case of modify parity and it is done by Railway Unions. No doubt, the basic efforts were done by Railway Unions to get the modify parity, but in that order by inserting para-5, the pro-rata pensioners of MTNL were refused to give this benefit by the GOI. Thereafter, Sunil Kumar filed petition in the name of PRPA vs GOI in the court to remove the para-5 from the main order. Then, court issued the order in favor of PRPA but the GOI did not implemented. After the given time by the court, Sunil Kumar filed contempt petition in the court for implementation of court order and also filed the caveat in the high court. The GOI did not move to the High court and Court ordered to make the payment. Thereafter, GOI made the payment of arrear in the court to Sunil Kumar and Ram Nath . Thereafter, the payment of others have released.
- It is experienced that it is difficult to get relief on Association/Union plate form and on other part, the individual appeals are properly listened. The PRPA has filed the 16 petition/filing in the court at different level and in some of the filing the decisions have come in favor and in some of the filing the prayers are dismissed. Even today, three cases are pending at different level. The cases filed on individual level or in very individual group, resulted in success. The latest example of CHGS up-gradation of pro-rata pensioners. In the Indian judicial system, it is time consuming. As & When, decision of any pending case comes, it will be informed on the site.
- In the CGHS up-gradation, total seven groups have got the order from the court and the case of two new groups are filed in court & waiting for order.
- Everyone is free to move to the court for their legitimate right. The PRPA is in the last appeal in the court with very few members and these are in a position to bear the expenses of court till last. None has to worry about Sunil Kumar and PRPA.
