The District Collector has asked retired government employees and teachers and family members of government employees and teachers who died in service to send petitions on their grievances relating to the grant of retirement and pension benefits such as Provident Fund and gratuity to the Collector (in two copies) within 15 days.

The Collector said in a release that the petitions would be forwarded to the departments concerned and steps taken to get reply from the officials. A meeting of the officials of various departments has been arranged at 11 a.m. on April 4 to enable the petitioners, whose grievances have not been redressed, to meet the officials and discuss their cases in the presence of the Collector. The officials would explain to the petitioners the action taken by them on their petitions.
