Mumbai, Sep 24 (UNI) Members of the Confederation of Atomic and Space Scientists/Technologists (COAST) have expressed utter dismay over the Central Pay Commission (CPC) dishonouring a 40 per cent technology excellence pay package envisaged by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Members of COAST, who met in Bangalore on September 21, felt that the decision would be remembered as a classic example of dishonouring highest authority's directive by a subordinate functionary such as Pay Commission and amounted to disrespect to the chair, according to a release issued here.
The meeting decided to approach their respective Secretaries with their observation that the common directives issued by the Government to Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Department Of Space (DOS) and Defence Research and Development Organisation were implemented by Defence Research and Development Organisation in true spirit, while the same was either delayed or denied in DAE and DOS.
COAST also agreed that they will approach their heads to dissolve the hand picked committee set up to look into the anomalies in CPC and reconstitute the same with an ombudsman as chairman of the committee with participation of COAST's representatives along with experts, who understand the complexity and intricacies of the issue. COAST is equipped with development of a mathematical model to confirm that anomalies exist in the CPC and need to be corrected at the earliest.
