As India celebrates ISRO and the partial success of Chandrayan 2, reports state that scientists at the organisation are protesting a reduction in salary.
The June 12 order reportedly came about a month before the launch of the Chandrayan 2 mission, which was pushed from the initial July 15 launch date after the scientists discovered a glitch.
So the order came into effect on the 1st of July and has resulted in more than 90% of all employees of ISRO losing about Rs 10,000 per month.
Meanwhile, the scientists at ISRO haven't taken this move in a good stride. Many have said that they are entirely dependent on their salaries. The Space Engineers Association has also written a letter to ISRO chairman K. Sivan regarding the same.
