May 1: PCSIR retirees have been suffering owing to late payment of pension. A number of letters have appeared in these columns, as well as in other papers, but no permanent solution has been sought to mitigate the suffering of scientists and their supporting staff.
Now the pension for March is still awaited, and there is no indication, whatsoever, as to when it would be paid. The authorities concerned should look into the matter.
