While announcing the hike then, he had said: “We can’t leave these loyal officers in such low standard of living.”

He added that financial difficulties or debts of the retirees will also be looked into.

“We will also compensate them for the material suffering they went through during the last period. I will deal with their problems and debts, and this file is in front of me now and I will start working on it.” — Wam
