The undersigned is directed to refer to DoPT’s DO No. 11/1/2015-JCA dated 26.03.2018 on the subject cited above and to say that the comments of this Department in respect of Item No 15,16,17 & 21 are enclosed (Annex-A).

Annex-A

Item no. 15,16,17&21:- Parity/ Modified Parity in pension/revised pension/family pension of all pre-1996 retirees with those who retired on or after 01.01.2006 .

In accordance with an Office Memorandum dated 01.09.2008, for revision of the pension of the pre-2006 pensioners, the pension/family pension of existing pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners was to be consolidated with effect from 01.01.2006 by adding together (i) The existing pension/family pension (ii) Dearness Pension, where applicable (iii) Dearness relief upto AICPI (IW) average index 536 (Base year 19823100) i.e. @ 24% of Basic Pension/Basic family pension plus dearness pension as admissible and (iv) fitment weightage @ 40% of the existing pension/family pension. Para 4.2 of the Office Memorandum dated 01.09.2008 provided that the fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension, in no case, shall be lower than fifty per cent of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band plus the Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised Pay Scale from which the pensioner had retired and in the case of HAG+ and above scales, this will be fifty per cent of the minimum of the revised Pay Scale.

2. Clarification on various provisions of the OM dated 1.9.2008 were issued vide Department of Pension and PW OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) pt. 1 dated 3.10.2008. In regard to Para 4.2 of the OM dated 1.9.2008 the following clarification was issued:-

“The pension calculated at 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band plus grade pay would be calculated at the minimum of the pay in the pay band (irrespective of the pre-revised scale of pay) plus the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale. For example, if a pensioner had retired in the pro-revised scale of pay of Rs.18400-22400, the corresponding pay band being Rs. 37400-67000 and the corresponding grade pay being Rs. 10,000/- p.m., his minimum guaranteed pension would be 50% of Rs. 37,4001 Rs. 10,000 (i.e. Rs. 23,700).

The pension will be reduced pro-rata, where the pensioner had less than the required service for full pension as per rule 49 of the CCS(Pension) Rules, 1972 as applicable on 01.01.2006 and in no case it will be less than Rs. 3500/- p.m.

In case the pension consolidated as per para 4.1 of OM.No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 1.9.2008 is higher than the pension calculated in the manner indicated above, the same (higher consolidated pension) will be treated as Basic Pension.”

3. In the Agenda item, the JCM (Staff side) claimed that the revised pension/family pension of all pic-2006 pensioners/family pensioners would not be less than 50% of the minimum of the pay band l grade pay, corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which pensioner had retired, as arrived at with reference to the fitment tables annexed to Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No. l/l/2008-IC dated 30.8.2008.

4. In the last meeting of the Anomaly Committee the staff side argued that a reading of the recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission on the matter indicated that the intent of the Pay Commission was to grant modified parity to pro-01.01.2006 pensioners by allowing the same fitment benefit as is being recommended to the existing Government employees subject to the provision that revised pension shall not be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the pay band prescribed for the grade pay and the sum of the grade pay with reference to the minimum of the pay band plus the grade pay which is not consistent with the recommendation of the Sixth CPC. Officer of Department of Expenditure stated that this was not the intent of me recommendation of the Pay Commission. After some discussion, the Staff Side request the Official Side to examine the matter once again.

5. After the above meeting of the Anomaly Committee, the following decisions have been taken by the Government:

(i) Orders were issued vide this Department’s OM of even number dated 28.1.2013 for stepping up of pension of pre-2006 pensioners w.e.f. 24.9.2012 to 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band and grade pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner retired. Para 5 of this OM provides that in case the consolidated pension/family pension calculated as per para 4.1 of OM. No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 192008 is higher than the pension/family pension calculated in the manner indicated in the OM. dated 28.1.2013, the same (higher consolidated pension/family pension) will continue to be treated as basic pension/family pension.

(ii) Subsequently, in compliance of an order dated 1.11.2oll of the Hon’ble CAT, Principal Bench in OA No. 655/2010, order dated 29.4.2013 of Hon’ble, High Court of Delhi in WP (C) No. 1535/2012 and order dated 17.3.2015 of Hon’ble Supreme Court in SLP (C) No. 36148/2013, order were issued vide this Department’s 4 O.M. No.38/37/O8-P&PW(A) dated 30.7.2015 that the pension/family pension of all pre ~ 2006 pensioners/family pensioners may be revised in accordance with this Department’s O.M. No.38/3 7/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.1.2013 with effect from 1.1.2006 instead of24.9.2012.

(iii) Vide OM. No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 6.4.2016, it was decided that the revised consolidated pension of pre-2006 pensioners shall not be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the Pay Band and the grade pay (wherever applicable) corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale as per fitment table without pro-rata reduction of pension even if they had qualifying service of less than 33 years at the time of retirement.

6. With the issue of the aforesaid orders, the demand of the staff side in regard to modified parity to pre-2006 pensioners has been accepted and implemented.

Scheme for compassionate appointment – Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection

Compassionate Appointments : Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection – Ministry of Defence

Ministry of Defence
D(Lab)

Sub: Scheme for compassionate appointment – Relative merit points and revised procedure for selection.

The undersigned is directed to say that the Department of Personnel & Training under the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions is the nodal department for Government of India’s Scheme for Compassionate Appointments. While considering requests for compassionate appointment, a balanced and objective assessment of financial condition of the families of the applicants has to be made taking into account the assets and liabilities and other relevant factors. The main object of the Scheme is to alleviate the family of the deceased government servant/member of the Armed Forces from indigence and help it get over the emergency. Accordingly, vide Ministry of Defence I.D. No.271/93/D(Lab) dated 2.11.93, Ministry of Defence had developed a 100-point weightage system containing various parameters/attributes to decide the most deserving cases amongst the large number of applicants. The weightage system was revised in 2001 vide Ministry of Defence ID No. 19(4)/824-99/1998-D(Lab) dated 9.3.2001. Consequent upon implementation of the 6th CPC Report, parameters of all these attributes were further revised in 2010 vide MoD note No.19(3)/2009/D(Lab) dated 22.1.2010 and 14.5.2010. Presently, the attributes on 100-point scale are – Quantum of Family Pension (20 points); Terminal Benefits (10 points); Monthly income of family from other sources (05 points); Movable/immovable property held by the family (10 points); No. of dependents (15 points), No. of unmarried daughters (15 points); No. of minor children (15 points) and Left over service (10 points). As per the practice, compassionate appointment is given to the highest score earner.

2. Now, consequent. upon implementation of the 7th CPC pay structure, the financial parameters are required to be revised again. Certain organisations/ formations under Ministry of Defence have been requesting for revision of relative merit points and procedure for selecting the most indigent applicant(s) for compassionate appointment after death/medically boarding- out of the Government servant/member of the Armed Forces on whose income the family was wholly dependent.

3. As per 7th CPC structure, the minimum pension stands revised from if 3,500 pm. (as per 6th CPC) to 1 9,000 p.m. which approximately comes out to be 2.57 times the old pension. The Govt. of India have also approved this factor of 2.57 for working oUt revised pay, based on which DCRG, Family Pension and Leave encashment are calculated. Accordingly, the monetary parameters/attributes such as Family Pension, Terminal Benefits, Monthly income of earning member(s) and income from property and latest market value of the Movable/Immovable property have been revised by the multiplying the fitment factor of 2.57 or so, for arriving at the present-day weightage points. However, other non-monetary parameters/attributes viz. No. of Dependents, No. of Unmarried Daughters, No. of Minor Children and Leftover Service have been kept unchanged.

4. Accordingly, with the approval of the competent authority, various parameters on the loo-point scale of weightage system stand revised as under with immediate effect:-

(a) Basic Family Pension 1 Monthly Amount received under National Pension System

(20 points)

(b) Lump sum amount received by the family on death of Govt. servant (i.e. DCR Gratuity, GPF/PPF A/c balance, Leave Encashment, CGEGIS, LIC/PLI etc.) Lump sum Amount received under NPS etc.

(10 points)

(c) Annual income from movable/immovable property as well as Annual income earned by other member(s) of the family

(05 points)

(d) Movable/immovable property of the family (Latest Market Value) including Fixed Deposit/Bank balance etc. but excluding the lump sum amount received as mentioned in (b) above

(10 points)

(e) No. of dependents

(15 points)

(f) No. of unmarried daughters

(15 points)

(g) No. of minor children

(15 points)

(h) Left over service

(10 points)

(Total 100 points)

5. The revised guidelines will take place with immediate effect. However, cases already considered by the Boards of Officers constituted for considering requests for compassionate appointment as per the previous guidelines need not be re-opened.

6. However, for considering belated requests for compassionate appointment where the death/disablement of Govt. servant/member of Armed Forces took place long ago, weightage points towards ‘Terminal Benefits’ may be awarded in the following manner:-

(a) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred prior to 9.3.2001, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 2.11.1993 will be applicable;

(b) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred on or after 9.3.2001 till 21.1.2010, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 9.3.2001 will be applicable; and

(c) For cases where death of the deceased Govt. servant occurred on or after 22.1.2010 till 31.12.2015, parameters of ‘Terminal Benefits’ given in MoD ID note dated 22.1.2010 will be applicable.

7. All the concerned are advised to strictly follow these weightage points and guidelines keeping in view the instructions issued by the DoP&T/MoD, from time to time for assessing comparative merit of the applicants for compassionate appointment.

Ministry of Finance,
Department of Expenditure,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: (i) Deptt. of Expenditure, MoF’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2- 1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015

Through this missive, your kind attention is drawn towards Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010.

Now, as per instruction of the Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and who opted 6th CPC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

However, it has to come to our knowledge that, the benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as per the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant (RP) Rules, 2008 with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010(as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP) Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this issue of revision of option to switch over to the 6th CPC in view of unforeseen events etc. to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of finance). Despite elapse of more than 12 months, no response has been received in this regard from Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance) to resolve the genuine demands of these employees.

In this connection, it is stated that as these are the unforeseen developments or change of rule, the opportunity to revise option for fixation under the Rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be given to these employees in these conditions, as it is more beneficial for them as now. Had they were aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation would be extended in future (as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015), they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates of promotion/financial upgradation as per the option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

In view of the above, you are requested to issue necessary clarifications in this regard to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, the aggrieved staff should get the opportunity to re-exercise their option under rule-6 of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 and get the benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

With Regards!

Special Allowance to Nurses working in Operation Theater/Intensive Care Unit – revision of Allowances

Special Allowance to Nurses working in Operation Theater/Intensive Care Unit – revision of Allowances

No.I/5(g)/Part VI

Dated: 05/01/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Special Allowance to Nurses working in Operation Theater/Intensive Care Unit – revision of Allowances-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No.1-B/2012.

(ii) Railway Board’s OM No. E(P&A)I-2009/SP-1/Gen1/1 dated 09/07/2010 and 08/10/2013.

(iii) NFIR’s letter No.I/5(g) dated 08/11/2012 & no. I/5(g)/Pt.V dated 02/09/2013 and 13/01/2014.

(iv) Ministry of Health & Family Welfare letter no.Z.28015/2012013 – N dated 17th October 2013 copy endorsed to NFIR.

(v) Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)I-2012/FE-4/1 dated 23/01/2014.

(vi) NFIR’s letter No.I/5(g)/Part V dated 21/10/2014, 20/10/2015, 30/05/2017 & letter No.I/5(g)/Part VI dated 20/09/2017.

(vii) O.M.No.Z.28015/52/2017-N dated 27th September,2017 issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare to all ministries/departments (Government of India).

(viii) NFIR’s letter No.I/5(g)/Part VI dated 16/10/2017.

(ix) Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)I-2017/SP-1/MH-1 dated 27/12/2017.

Federation desires to invite attention of the Railway Board to the letters cited under reference relating to the NFIR’s PNM agenda Item No.1-B/2012.

During NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14-11-2017, the Official Side through Action Taken Statement on the agenda item conveyed that the advice of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare in the matter was still awaited and reminders have also been sent on 26/04/2017 and 11/10/2017 to ascertain the date of enhancement of the Allowance to Rs. 360/-p.m. from Rs. 120/- p.m.

Federation is surprised to note that though the instructions have since been issued by the Board revising the rate of Special Allowance, renamed as Operation Theater Allowance to the Nursing Personnel working in the specialized areas in the Railway Hospitals under the Ministry of Railways to Rs.540/- p.m. w.e.f. 1st July 2017, vide Board’s letter dated 27/12/2017, unfortunately the said letter does not mention NFIR’s PNM agenda Item. There is, therefore necessity to issue amendment to Board’s letter dated 27/12/2017.

Further to above, Federation desires to mention that the question relating to enhancement of Special Allowance from Rs.120/- p.m. to Rs.360/-p.m. pursuant to implementation of 6th CPC recommendations, is still unanswered and payment not arranged with back date.

NFIR,therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue corrigendum to Board’s letter dated 27-12-2017 for enhancement of Operation Theater Allowance from Rs.120/-p.m to Rs.360/- p.m also with retrospective effect, duly citing NFIR’s PNM agenda item.

Federation may be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Ministry’s OM of even no. dated 30.08.2016 wherein an issue raised by one of the Staff Federations vide PNM Agenda Item No.10/2016 was referred to M/o Finance for examination. The Federation had demanded that the basic pay for the purpose of calculation of increment in the 6th CPC should include Pay element of Running Allowance for the Running staff. This meant that increment of Running Staff should be calculated @3 % of {Basic pay + pay element (presently 30% of Basic Pay)}.

2. This issue was examined in Pay Commission Dte. of Railway Board and a copy of reply sent to one of the Zonal Railways is enclosed as Annex-I.

3. As regards the queries raised by M/o Finance vide 011/1 dated 01.02.2017, it is clarified that a portion of Basic Pay of the Running Staff is treated as a “Pay element of running allowance” which itself falls outside the definition. of Basic Pay as defined in FR(9) (21)(a)(i) but falls in the broader definition of the term “pay” as in FR(9) (21)(a)(iii). The pay element at specified rates is counted for specified purposes only. As per Rule No. 25 of “The Rules for payment of Running and other Allowances to the Running Staff on Railways, 1981″ read with para 3.23 of Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-80/RS- 10 dated 17.07.1981 (Annex-11), the pay element i.e. 30% of the Basic Pay of Running Staff will be reckoned as pay for specified purposes (not for all) such as Dearness Allowances, House Rent Allowance, entitlement to Passes, PTOs etc. It is pertinent to mention here that pay element is not reckoned as pay for Transport Allowance, Night Duty Allowance etc.

3.1   In accordance with para 2 of Board’s letter No. E(P&A) II-2005/RS-34 dated 26.12.2008 (RBE No.202/2008) (Annex-III}, pay element in the Running n Allowance for running staff would be 30% of the basic pay under Railway Service (Revised Pay) Rules,2008 for computation of specified benefits excluding retirement benefits. For the purpose of computation of retirement benefits of running staff, an additional quantum of 55% of the basic pay under RS(RP) Rules,2008 would be reckoned.

Sub: Revision of the 6th CPC Pay Scale of Rs. 4440-7440 (-1S)

Dear Sir,

Alter the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations the minimum entry qualification for Central Government job is kept as Matriculation or ITI. However candidates who are not Matric/ITI qualified are recruited in the -1S pay scale of Rs. 4440-7440 and kept in the same pay scale till they acquire the Matriculation qualification. However the pay scale is not yet revised even after the implementation of the 7th CPC pay scales w.e.f. 1/1/2016.  This is causing undue financial hardship to the concerned employees.  It is therefore requested that you may kindly consider the above issue and necessary instructions may please be issued revising the above pay scale w.e.f. 1/1/2016 on the basis of 7th CPC

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

7thCPC-Child-Care-Leave-CCL

No.NC/JCM/2017

Dated: August 4, 2017

The Secretary(DoP&T),
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
(Department of Personnel & Training)
North Block, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Child Care Leave – recommendations of the 7th CPC

It may please be recalled that, the 6th CPC, accepting the consistent demand of the Staff Side for grant of Child Care Leave to Women Central Government Employees, had recommended maximum two years CCL for women government employees for taking care of maximum two children, as a welfare measure the women government employee for taking care of maximum two children as a welfare measure. Women government employees were availing this specific leave for taking care of their children with 100% salary for a maximum period of two years, owing to certain difficulties having being experienced by the employer, certain conditions were subsequently laid down to avail CCL by women government employees.

One of the subsequently introduced conditions was that, they can avail their leave in maximum 3 spell during in a calendar year. While 7th CPC has duly acknowledged the requirement of CCL for women government employees as well as single male employees and recommended that the practice should continue as hitherto, additionally entitling single male employee to avail the same, but unfortunately, imposed another new condition that, although for the first 365 CCL 100% salary would be payable. However, for subsequent 365 days only 80% of their salary to be paid.

It may be appreciated that, provision of CCL to women government employees with the sole motto of taking care of their children, particularly at the time the children are in grave need of the same, a welfare measure at the same was being granted with 100% salary before the report of the 7th CPC came in the effect.

Therefore, imposition of the condition of 80% salary payable in the 2nd spell of 365 days is grossly unjustified and uncalled for and would result in withdrawal of a well acknowledged welfare measure.

It is, therefore, requested that the issue may be looked into in the light of the foregoing the earlier practice of payment of 100% salary of the entire 2 years may please be restored as a noble employer.

Comradely yours

7th CPC: Fixation of Pension

7th CPC: Fixation of Pension

7thCPC-Fixation-Pension

In implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendation of the Seventh Central Pay Commission (7th CPC), orders have been issued vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/16-P&PW(A) (i) dated 04.08.2016 for revision of provisions regulating pension/gratuity/ commutation of pension/family pension/disability pension/ex-gratia lump-sum compensation, etc. in respect of the employees retiring on or after 01.01.2016.v For revision of pension of pre-2016 civil pensioners, the 7th CPC recommended the following two formulations:

(i) Notional Pay of employees who retired prior to 01.01.2016 may be fixed in the Pay Matrix on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, by adding the number of increments he/ she had earned in that level while in service, to the minimum of the corresponding level in the matrix. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.

(ii) The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the 6th CPC recommendations, may be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.

7th CPC recommended that the pensioners may be given the option of choosing the formulation which is more beneficial to them. Orders were issued for revision of pension as per Formulation (ii) above vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/16-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 and the pension disbursing authorities were advised to make payment of revised pension accordingly without waiting for the revised pension payment authority. A Committee under the chairmanship of Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare was constituted to examine the feasibility of Formulation (i). The Committee observed that Formulation (i) as recommended by the 7th CPC might be difficult to implement in a large number of cases and this method may also cause anomalies.

In implementation of the recommendations of the aforesaid Committee, orders have been issued vide Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare O.M. No. 38/37/16-P&PW(A) dated 12.05.2017. It has been provided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016. Higher of the two Formulations i.e. the pension/family pension already revised in accordance with this Department’s OM dated 04.08.2016 or the revised pension/family pension as worked out by notional pay fixation method, shall be the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016.

There were around 55.51 lakh pensioners/family pensioners (including defence pensioners/family pensioners) as on 31.03.2016. All Pension Sanctioning Authorities have been advised to accord top priority to the work of revision of pension and issue revised Pension Payment Authority in implementation of the above orders expeditiously.

There is no proposal for creation of any other organisation for pension related issues.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office, Dr Jitendra Singh in a written reply to question by Adv. Narendra Keshav Sawaikar and Shri P. Nagarajan in the Lok Sabha today.

Pension to IAF Veterans

Pension to IAF Veterans

Pension of pre-2006 retired Junior Commissioned Officers/ Other Ranks (JCOs / ORs) have been assessed on the basis of rank continuously held for 10 months or more. However, protection of minimum of fitment table under 6th Pay Commission for the last rank held has been provided.

A Junior Warrant Officer (JWO) who has not served for 10 months or more continuously in the rank is entitled to receive initial pension in the rank of Sergeant. However, where the revised pension as on 01.07.2014 worked out in terms of OROP order, happens to be less than the existing pension as on 01.07.2014, the pension has not been revised to the disadvantage of the pensioner.

Further, the issue whether in the case of JCOs / ORs, the pension is to be paid on the basis of the last rank held instead of last rank pensioned under OROP was referred to the Judicial Committee on OROP. The Committee has submitted its report to the Ministry which is under examination.
