There is very simple rule that if you were employed in any PSU and shifted to another then to get pay protection it is very much essential either your application was forwarded through yout past employer which means through proper channel or if not then they had issued you NOC to join in the new PSU.


Ashwini read this but  look at DPE website I feel there r circulars on pay protection when some one changes between PSU

DPE per provisions of pay protection in  central PSU's,Department of public enterprises has not issued any circulars for employees below board level employees. For board level employees there are guilines. At the time of interview it should be ascertained from the employer about payprotection. also it should be ensured about payprotection in the appointment letter. if appointment letter is silent regarding pay protection we should writtenly seen clarification regarding payprotection from the employer.

many CPSU have the clause of pay protection in their service rules for the executives coming from other CPSU.DPE has openied that the pay protection will be as per respective managements of CPSU.

better approach the management diplomatically showing/enclosing the various payprotection policies of various CPSU(we get get payprotection policies by RTI act from CPSU concerned) also enclosing various financial liabilities on you due to reduction in basic pay by writtenly enclosing the periodic commitment of payments like houseloans and insurance policies etc. and try to approach  GM rank and above officials regarding the issue.

after your complete efforts,rest god will take care.
