    G.P. of UDC is 2400/-. On promotion after a long time to Asstt after 31 Aug 2008 he gets 9300+4600. He also not got the NFSG i.e. 4200, as the effective date of NFSG is 22.6.2011.
    But Asstt between 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008 has got their pay fixed at 13860+4600.
    Nobody has sympathy with those employees who has contributed 20-25 years of their service.
