With just Rs 1,000 as monthly pension, plight of retired HMT employees needs to be heard
The retired employees of the Hindustan Machine Tools are in distress. The retired employees who are now senior citizens of the country say that they have been deprived of their arrears since 1992 and the 1997 scale for over 15 years now. Many had approached the Kerala High Court seeking justice. In a 2014 order the HC had said that it is of the view that the Government of India should consider the plight of the retired workers of the HMT.
