    It’s greatly disappointing as Board Level/Below Board Level Officers have got their enhanced gratuity arrears leaving out the Supervisors of Central Govt. PSU’s entirely. The DPE of 26.11.2008 a Nodal authority of Ministry of Heavy Industries clearly stated that Non Unionised Supervisors are also to be given enhanced gratuity wef 01.01.2007. Dont know why this “U” turn in case of Central Govt. PSU Supervisors. Can anyone help us to push this matter forward as it grossly violates the notifications of the DPE?
