Letter Published in GulfNews UAE on 6July 17 Seniors suffer
This is with reference to the seventh pay commission hike in India. On the one hand, while I applaud hiking the salaries and benefits of government employees, on the other hand I am completely disappointed for the fate of senior citizens. Those senior citizens who are not getting a pension and are depending only on their deposit interest are the most affected people today. The government should think about their fate and a decent hike in interest rates on deposits should be implemented without further delay.
From Mr K. Ragavan
