It was also decided that on his joining the civil employment, he would be deemed to be a civil employee and would accordingly be entitled to only such of the benefits like relaxation of age etc. as admissible to civil employees in the normal course. Vide this Department’s O.M. No. 36034/21/87-Estt.(SCT) dated 07.11.1989, it was clarified that the instructions of 02.05.1985 shall not apply to those ex-servicemen who have been re-employed or are re-employed by private companies/autonomous bodies/ public sector undertakings/ government offices on casual/contract/temporary ad-hoc basis and who can be removed from such service at any time by their employer concerned.

Important Cat Judgement regarding MACP – Confederation News
IMPORTANT CAT JUDGEMENT
DECLINING REGULAR PROMOTION BEFORE THE DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION OF ACP OR MACP SCHEME SHOULD NOT BE A BAR FOR GRANTING ACP/MACP
Refusal to accept promotion, earlier to 09.08.1999 when the ACP scheme was promulgated, does not make an employee ineligible for grant of first financial benefits under ACP scheme when the scheme came into force only on 09.08.1999
Facts: The Applicant (who was appointed on 08.03.1980), while working as Radio Mechanic in India Meteorological Department refused his promotion due to family circumstances, when his promotion order was issued on 30.07.1998.
The Assured career Progression Scheme came into force on 09.08.1999. The Applicant having completed 12 years of service and stagnating in the same post of Radio Mechanic was rejected for the financial benefit of ACP on the ground that he refused his promotion when offered on 30.07.1998 earlier to the introduction of ACP scheme on 09.08.1999.
Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP) was introduced for financial upgradation on 19.05.2009. As per this scheme, an employee will be entitled for three financial upgradation after completion of 10, 20 and 30 years of continuance of service. The Applicant became eligible for 1st ACP in 2000 and 2nd MACP in 2010. The grievance of the Applicant is that, he was denied 1st ACP and 2nd MACP. Hence he filed this OA challenging the Office Orders 10/11-12-2008 and 20-9-2010 whereby he was denied the financial upgradation.
The Respondents state that he refused promotion issued by Order dated 30.07.1998. In terms of DoP&T O. M. No. 35034/1/1997 Establishment (D) (Vol. IV), dated 18.07.2001, the Applicant cannot be said to stagnate in the same post. Hence the 1st ACP benefits was refused. The Applicant annexed the judgement of Bombay Bench of the Tribunal as appeared in Swamynews of July, 2008.
The Bombay Bench of the CAT held that “If an employee has refused the promotion before the enforcement of ACP Scheme, the facts would remain that he has actually not been given any financial upgradation which he could have been before regular promotion. He remains on the scale of pay still stagnated”. In view of this clarification, the clarification of Respondents cannot be accepted. Ernakulam Bench of CAT in OA No. 768 of 2005 considered condition No. 10 makes it amply clear that if an employee is accepting ACP benefit, he is deemed to have given unqualified acceptance for regular promotion on occurrence of vacancy subsequently”. That precludes factoring of past refusal while given ACP benefit.
In view of the above, refusals of promotion earlier to 9-8-1999, has no effect on the grant of financial benefit under ACP scheme. Hence, the clarification given no Doubt No. 38 by DoP&T cannot be accepted in this case as the Applicant herein refused promotion earlier to the coming of ACP Scheme. In that view, refusal of grant of 2nd financial upgradation under MACP scheme amount to punishing him for the second time. Hence, the eligibility of benefits under ACP scheme has to be recknoned on the actual date namely 9-8-1999. Hence declaining promotion earlier to 9-8-1999 is no reason to deny the first ACP introduced on 9-8-1999. Hence, a direction was given to Respondents to grant the Applicants benefits under the ACP scheme irrespective of the fact of their refusal of promotion earlier to 9-8-1999. Time given for implementation was 6 weeks.
In view of the above, same relief given by Bombay Bench is to be followed in this case also.
In the result, the impugned Order, dated 10/11-12-2008 and 20-9-2010 are set aside. The Respondents are directed to grant financial benefits under the ACP scheme to the Applicant in 12 weeks from the date of receipt of this order.
This the OA stands allowed.

BCPC Final Memorandum to 7th CPC
MEMORANDUM ON PENSION AND OTHER RETIREMENT BENEFITS
CHAPTER – I
The Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, Resolution No.1/1/2013-EIII(A) dated 28th February, 2014 in its Para 2(f) has included the following terms of reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission:
“(f) To examine the principles which should govern the structure of Pension and other retirement benefits, including revision of pension in the case of employees who were retired prior to the date of these recommendations, keeping in view that the retirement benefits of all Central Government employees appointed on and after 01.01.2004 are covered by the New Pension Scheme (NPS).”
1.2 The principles that should govern the structure of pension etc have to be evolved taking into account the relevant constitutional provisions as well as judicial pronouncements by the Supreme Court of India in this regard.
1.3 Article 366(17) of the Constitution of the Country defines pension as under:
“ Pension: Pension means a pension whether contributory or not, of any kind whatsoever payable to or in respect of any person and includes retired pay so payable; a gratuity so payable and any sum or sums so payable by way of the return, with or without interest thereon or any other addition thereto, of subscription to a Provident Fund.” From this what is to be inferred is that the gratuity as well as commutation are also part of the pension as a whole. These are also to be treated as pensionery benefits.
1.4 The IV CPC went into the conceptual question of pension in detail. Some of the observations contained in their report are relevant in understanding the purport in the background in which the Central Government employees are placed today. This is reproduced below:-
“Para 2.13: Part II: The concept of “pension” however old in its origin, had the latent and real desire to provide for an eventuality – known and unknown. The known eventuality was old age and probable reduction in earning power, while the unknown eventuality was disability by disease or accident or death. Its real purpose was security, Even though the beginning was oblique, indiscernible and faint, but the germ of an effort to provide security ran through the provision and it is natural that it should have grown and flowered with the development of human understanding and desire to look after and provide for those who deserved it for man has constantly been seeking means by which to enhance his economic security. But the extension of the pension provision from military service to civilian public employment, resulted largely from consideration for the employees and the pressure of their organisations. Some benevolent employer goes to the extent of regarding pensions as an absolutely indispensable complement of wages – a terminal benefit. That, however, is apart from another aspect bearing on pension – the social aspect. The demographic structure of the population is changing because of the greater expectation of life. Thus, those who are now in middle age are going to be nearly twice as big an economic burden to their children as their parents are to them. The problem in such cases, has been tackled as a social obligation, including social insurance for citizens generally.”
“Para 2.17: In the very nature of things, every employee, who lives long enough, reaches a stage of diminished outturn of work or what may generally be called nonproductive years. That may, speaking generally again, be set to be the responsibility of his employer for whom he has spent the best years of his life. In a welfare state that may also be set to be the responsibility of the Government (where he is not in his employment) and, in more modern society, it may also be set to be the responsibility of the individual. So all three namely, the employer, the Government and the employee or one or the other of them, may be expected to contribute towards the pension according to the social or administrative set up of the country or society where the individual undertakes the service but the one common feature and object of pension is to provide for the old age of the employee for the simple reason that time has eroded his capacity to earn and he is unable to provide for himself. In a country like ours, where we have solemnly resolved to constitute it into a “Socialist” Republic and to secure to us all social and economic justice (Preamble), it behoves the Government to take care of its employees by providing terminal benefit like retirement pension when they become entitled to them. We may refer to the directive principle of the State Policy enshrined in Article 39 (a) of the Constitution that the State shall in particular direct its policy towards securing that the citizens have the justify to an “adequate means of livelihood” ….. If, such a citizen is an employee of the State, is it out of ordinary, and not as of a Constitutional directive, that the State should appreciate its duty to provide for him by means of a pension and/or other terminal benefits? (emphasis added) …. The concept of pension, therefore carries within it the germ of certainty, periodicity, and “adequacy”. ……. Ours is a Socialist State and the fundamental aim of Social security is to give individuals and families the confidence that their level of living and quality of life will not, in so far as, be greatly eroded by any social or economic eventuality, including the age of superannuation or oncoming disability”
1.5 The concept of pension has been explained more precisely in the Encyclopaedia of Social Sciences, Vol.11 as under:
“administrators and civic leaders interested in the improvement of Government services formulated the idea of pension as an efficiency device necessary for the orderly and humane elimination of superannuated and disabled employees no longer able to function efficiently for the proper operation of the system of promotions, for the attraction of better type of employees and for the improvement of working morale”
1.6 On the doctrinal approach the Encyclopaedia further states that:
“ A doctrine recently advanced and more far reaching in its implications regard the Public Service as the logical pioneer in the meeting of the old age problem as it affects wage earner in modern society. This doctrine considers a pension as a compensation paid to the employee for the gradual destruction of his wage earning capacity in the course of his work. Retirement being a proper charge against the employees, entire period of active service, the employer should make contribution towards the employees eventual retirement during each year of service of the employee, in a manner similar to that in which he annually sets aside a reserve against depreciation and obsolescence of his plant and machinery. Pensions, according to this doctrine, are an absolutely indispensable compliment of wages.”
1.7 In para 2.20 the IV Pay Commission has observed:
“but even though the Government service pension scheme in our country is non-contributory, it has been contended again by way of doctrinal approach, that this is not really so and that some allowance is made for the missing contribution while determining the salaries”
1.8 The Supreme Court in their Landmark Judgment (which has been approvingly quoted by the 5th CPC in D.S.Nakara and others Vs Union of India (AIR 1983 SC 130) held that Pension is neither a bounty nor a matter of grace depending upon the sweet will of the employer. It is not an ex-gratia payment but payment for past services rendered. It is a social welfare measure rendering socio economic justice to those who in the hey-days of their life ceaselessly toiled for their employer on an assurance that in their old age they would not be left in lurch. The 5th CPC paying due respect to the above observation of the Honourable Apex Court in Para 127.6 of its report has stated that the pension is the statutory, inalienable, legally enforceable justify of employees which has been earned by the sweat of their brow.
As such the pension should be fixed, revised, modified and changed in ways not entirely dissimilar to the salaries granted to serving employees.
1.9 While examining the goals that a pension scheme should seek to sub-serve, the Honourable Apex Court held that “a pension scheme consistent with available resources must provide that the pensioner would be able to live:
(i) free from want, with decency, independence and self respect, and
(ii) at a standard equivalent at the pre retirement level”
The Court observed that we owe it to the Pensioners that they live, not merely exist.
1.10 From the above observation of the Supreme Court it is clear that pension is payable by the employer i.e., the Central Government to its retired employees which is their statutory and legally enforceable justify from which they cannot be deprived. That the amount of pension must be enough to enable a pensioner to live free from want with decency, independence, and self-respect and at a standard equivalent at the pre-retirement level.
1.11 Keeping the above observations and principles and judicial pronouncements in view, we submit below our suggestions for restructuring the existing pensionery scheme in appropriate chapters. We have made our submissions only in respect of issues where we want Commission to consider improvements in the existing provisions.

Promotion of Self-Certification in place of affidavits and attestation by Gazetted Officers
Less Government More Governance
A citizen friendly and accountable administration is the focus of the Government. A series of steps to achieve this goal have been initiated. These include simplification of procedures, identification and deletion of archaic laws/rules, identification and shortening of various forms, leveraging technology to bring in transparency in public interface and a robust public grievance redress system.
Promotion of Self-Certification in place of affidavits and attestation by Gazetted Officers is one important step in this regard. This greatly reduces the time and effort on the part of both the citizen as well as the Government officials.
Leveraging the power of information technology brings with it the advantage of transparency and speed. One of the focus areas of Government is to reduce the decision making layers to the minimum while allowing for faster means of information sharing/dissemination.
The Government has launched a website firstname.lastname@example.org for this purpose. This is a citizen centric platform to empower people to connect with the Government and contribute towards good governance. Suggestions are also received on the PMO website. It also seeks expert advice from the people, thoughts and ideas on various topics that concern India. Citizens can join the discussion to share, debate and add value.
Dr. Jitendra Singh Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions gave this information in Lok Sabha today in a written reply to a question by Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Shri B. Vinod Kumar and Shri Anantkumar Hegde.

Memorandum to 7th Pay Commission – AINTSSA submitted on 30.7.2014
MEMORANDUM TO SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
Member, Naval Heaquarters JCM Council,
Confederation of Defence Recognized Association
All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff Associations.
Address: F-10/105, Kings Ville, Green City,
Ambarnath (East), Thane-421501.
Mob. No. 08655481087
AINTSSA/BBM-DO/31 /VII CPC
30 Jul 2014
The Member Secretary,
7th Central Pay Commission,
Post Box No. 4599,
Hauz Khas Post Office,
On behalf of All India Naval Technical Supervisory Staff Association, I welcome and wish all the success to the 7th Pay Commission in their mission of evolving pay structures and other related matters, which is expected to be fair enough for the government employees to lead a dignified life and perform their duties effectively and efficiently.
AINTSSA represents about 4000 Technical Supervisors working in Indian Navy in various Naval establishments of the Nation. They are basically from all the branches of engineering – including Civil , Mechanical , production, Electrical , Computer, Electronics & Telecom Engineering etc. They supervise and guide around 26000 workforce of Navy.
We present this memorandum to 7th CPC representing the following categories in the Indian Navy:
Around 2400 Chargeman
Around 1600 Foreman
Degree of skills, strain of work and requirement of knowledge, experience & expertise, continued & updated technical knowledge with effective training, mounting responsibility and accountability, multifaceted work contents, working condition with hazards and fatigue, mental & physical strain pertaining to these categories have been elaborately explained in the subsequent explanations.
The key to efficiency and competitive spirit in work lies not only in getting appropriate salary for the job but also with dignity & status. We welcome the provisions provided in the terms of reference. Those strategies are to be evolved in order to attract talents and retain them in service which is considered to be the need of the day in the globalised era.
Important role of these middle level managers was recognized by 3rd & 4th CPC which exclusively granted appropriate pay scales to technical supervisors based on their job contents and other factors. But it was shattered by the V & VI CPC which completely ignored their duties and responsibilities and diluted their status by seriously disturbing their relativity.
Further the fact that Naval Dockyards, NSRYs, Training centers and Ship building establishments of Indian Navy are basically technical organizations and the safe successful and efficient performance of the organizations lies primarily in the hands of their technical work forces who are supervised, trained and overseen by these technical supervisors.
7th CPC is requested to look into the serious anomalies caused especially by the Sixth CPC which have demoralized the category due to non-redressal of these anomalies – as brought out in this Memorandum. We request the Pay Commission to kindly evolve a replacement scale to the categories and ensure natural justice and dignity.
Technical Supervisors shoulder the direct responsibilities of safe, efficient & ‘Failure proof’ production, repair, maintenance and operation of almost all the systems of Naval warships of Indian Navy. Reduction of manpower in artisan staff, introduction of new ships, addition of new assets and introduction of new & modern technologies etc, have substantially added to their duties and responsibilities over the years. Other departments provide only necessary support to them in order to enable them to discharge their functions.
It is unfortunate that both 5th and 6th Pay Commissions had underestimated the significance and sensitiveness of the work-content of the technical supervisors, their responsibility and accountability. Many vital factors like their ‘Professional qualifications’ & ‘greater responsibilities’ as well as the accountability towards public safety and efficiency of the Nation went out of sight of both these Pay Commissions.
But, supporting categories like Accounts, Teachers and Nurses who were all along in the lower pay scales than the Technical Supervisors, were given up-gradation and were placed even two grades higher than Technical Supervisors. Worse and even more humiliating is the fact that the pay of categories like MCM, which work under the Technical Supervisors, were also equated with them – undermining the Supreme Court judgment of “the supervisor’s pay cannot be equal to the person being supervised”.
It is our earnest request that 7th CPC may consider the facts brought out in our memorandum. Commission is requested to remove various obstacles that come in the way of attracting talents to the technical supervisory cadre of Indian navy and in improving the efficiency of working system for which the Commission may kindly provide appropriate replacement scales for Chargemen and Foremen, which may justify the relativity of the emoluments in accordance with the job contents, working conditions, accountability & responsibilities, multi-faceted skills & critical management capacity.
I, also earnestly believe that we may be summoned for tendering oral evidence before 7th CPC in line with the earlier CPCs.

Payment of DA on Pension of Ex-Servicemen
Guidelines issued by the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare for payment of Dearness Relief to re-employed pensioners have been extended by this Ministry to the ex-servicemen re-employed in civil posts. These guidelines are as under:-
- The pay of re-employed pensioners who held posts of the ranks of Commissioned Officers at the time of their retirement is fixed at the same stage as last drawn before their retirement. These pensioners are not entitled to any Dearness Relief on pension on their re-employment in civil posts.
- The pay of re-employed pensioners who held posts below the ranks of Commissioned Officers (PBOR) at the time of their retirement is fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which they are re-employed. Such pensioners are entitled to Dearness Relief on pension on their re-employment in civil posts.
- If the pay of re-employed pensioners who held posts, below the ranks of Commissioned Officer (PBOR) at the time of their retirement before attaining the age of 55 years, is fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of the last pay drawn is being given, the pay is treated as fixed at a minimum of the pay scale for the purposes of ignoring the entire pension and allowing Dearness Relief on pension.
It is expected that the aforesaid guidelines are being implemented by all banks uniformly without prejudice to the ex-servicemen category. This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Arun Jaitley in a written reply to ShriMahendra Singh Mahrain Rajya Sabha today.
