Subject: Payment of arrears accruing in respect of deceased pensioners/family pensioners to the nominee/legal heir.

On death of the pensioners/family pensioners, the pension account is closed by the bank and the balance amount in the account of pensioners/family pensioners is paid to the nominees/legal heirs. However, it is observed that the life time arrears arising subsequently on account of Pay Commission etc. are not paid to the nominees/legal heirs of the deceased pensioners/family pensioners either on account of fact that the pension/family pension is not revised by the concerned Pension Sanctioning Authority (PSA) or the amount of arrears of revised pension/family pension is not paid due to closure of the bank account. In such cases action is to be taken by the concerned Pay & Accounts Officer as per provision of para 7.5.6 of the Civil Accounts Manual (copy attached).

DP&PW vide its OM No. 1/22/2012-P&PW (E) dated 10th July, 2013 (copy enclosed) has clearly defined the procedure so that nominees/legal heirs of pensioners/family pensioners are not subjected to harassment in claiming the payment of arrears of pension.

In view of the above, all the Head of Offices/PAOs/CPPCs of banks are requested to comply with the procedure as mentioned in the above OM of DP&PW for speedy settlement of claims of pension arrears.

Equal Basic Pension Under 7th CPC

EQUAL BASIC PENSION UNDER SEVENTH CPC

The 7th Central Pay Commission had recommended two formulations for revision of pension of employees who retired before 01.01.2016 and the employees were given option to choose whichever

formulation was beneficial. As per the first formulation, the Commission recommended for revision of pension based on notional pay arrived at by adding the number of increments an employee had earned in the appropriate level while in service.

This formulation was later on examined by a Committee under the Chairmanship of Secretary, Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare. The Committee recommended that instead of counting of increments earned in the retiring scale and applying directly to the 7th Pay Commission Pay Matrix, a more scientific and rational method would be to refix pay in each successive Pay Commission as per the formula for revision of pay right up to the 7th Pay Commission.

This method of fixing notional pay and pension would benefit a larger number of pensioners as compared to the increment method which benefits only a select segment of pensioners who served for a longer period in the retiring scale without being promoted to a higher grade. This has been accepted by the Government and appropriate orders have been issued.

Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff

Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff-reg.

Dated: 11/01/2018

The Member Staff,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners pursuant to Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th CPC – Concordance Tables for pension revision to the former Running Staff-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. 2016/F(E)III/1(1)/7 dated 11/07/2017.

Railway Board’s attention is invited to the instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 11/07/2017 (RBE No. 66/2017) vide which DoP&PW’s orders together with Concordance tables for revision of Pension of pre-2016 Pensioners/Family Pensioners have been circulated. The Concordance Tables circulated by the Board, unfortunately do not cover the pension revision of former Running Staff as no separate tables in favour of them staff have been circulated so far. Reports received by the Federation (NFIR) reveal that the Pension/Family Pension of pre-2016 Running Staff is not being revised by the Zonal Railways due to non-provision of separate Concordance Tables by the Railway Board.

In this connection, NFIR desires to clarify that in case of former Running Staff Pension/Family Pension is required to be calculated taking into account the Basic Pay + 55% add on pay element. A sample calculation sheet of the Pension in the case of pre-2016 Running Staff is enclosed as Annexure to this letter for appreciation and quick action.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to communicate the Concordance Tables to the Zonal Railways for revision of Pension/Family Pension of former Running Staff. It is also urged that the Concordance Tables be finalized on the basis of specimen (vide Annexure to this letter) and instructions issued to the GMs of Zonal Railways.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary


Annexure to NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B.-Part II

Running Staff retired on 31/12/2005.      

Basic Pay = Rs. 9525
On 01/01/2006 = Rs. 9525 x 30% = Rs. 2858
Pay on 31/12/2015 = Rs. 9525 + 2858 = 12383 x 2.26     = Rs. 27985
Notional Pay on 31/12/2015 = 27985 + GP 4200/-
Pay on 01/01/2016 = Rs. 27985 x 30% = 8396
Rs. 27985 + 8396 = 36,381 + GP 4200 = 40,581
Rs. 40,581 x 2.57 = 1,04,294/-
Pay element (55%) = Rs. 1,04,294 x 55% = Rs. 57,362
Settlement pay = Rs. 1,04,294 + 57,362 = 1,61,656
Monthly Pension = Rs. 1,61,656 ÷ 2 = 80,828

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

How, the battle is lost
One rank one pension denied

OPTION 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of Pension/Family pension of pre-2016 Denied inspite of availability of service records of over 80% of old pensioners.

The alternative given vide OM dated 12.5.2017 though to some extent it will benefit a good % of old pensioners, it cannot make up the lifelong loss old pensioners will suffer due to denial of option 1. Ever since Honourable Supreme Court land mark judgement dated_____ in UOI vs D S Nakra. In the hide and seek game with UOI for 100% parity between present & past Civil Pensioners Bharat Pensioners Samaj had this time secured Penalty Corner but the Babu in DOP & PW foiled the final hit.

Why only DOP& PW, our own people must share the blame! The war veterans whom we had been supporting for years in their struggle for one rank one pension were the first to oppose ‘Bharat Pensioners Samaj‘ demand for 100% parity/one rank one pension through electronic media as well as through representations (backed by their serving HODs) to GOI pleading that they only are entitled to this benefit and not the Civil pensioners

The final blow was delivered in the 7th meeting of feasibility committee on 17.10.2016 when as mentioned in Para 4 of the official minutes vide No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) GOI Ministry of Personnel, P.G. and Pensions -DOP &PW dated the 31st October, 2016 (placed here under). JCM (staff side) agreed with govt’s alternative proposal.

Basic pension of ex-servicemen increased 2.57 times: President Pranab Mukherjee

Basic pension of ex-servicemen increased 2.57 times: President Pranab Mukherjee

Pokhara (Nepal): The basic pension of ex-servicemen of the Indian Army has increased by 2.57 times as compared to pension of December 31, 2015, President Pranab Mukherjee today said here while addressing ex-servicemen of the Gurkha regiments in the Indian Army.

Mukherjee, who is also the supreme commander of the armed forces, lauded the valour and discipline of the Gurkha soldiers in guarding the borders of India.

Mukherjee, who is on a three-day state visit to Nepal, visited the Pension Office for Gurkha ex-servicemen here in the last segment as large number of these soldiers live here after retirement.

The scenic Pokhara Valley, nestled in the shadow of towering snowcapped peaks of Dhaulgiri, Machapuchare, and Annapurna is home to a large number of soldiers of the famed Gurkha regiments in the Indian Army.

The President received a warm welcome here with people dressed in traditional clothes carrying flags of India and Nepal had lined up the roads from airport to hotel where he stayed briefly and then from hotel to pension office of the Gurkha regiments ex-servicemen.

People stood there throughout the stay of the President who was in the city for nearly an hour playing drums, dancing and waving as his convoy passed through the streets of Pokhara city.

“According to the seventh Pay Commission the basic pension has increased 2.57 times under the One Rank One Pension scheme as compared to basic pension on December 31, 2015,” Mukherjee said.

He said being the supreme commander of the Indian defence forces, it was a matter of great satisfaction and pride that all the welfare schemes of ex-servicemen are being implemented in Nepal on time.

The President said there are 32,000 Gurkha soldiers in Indian Army besides 1.26 lakh ex-servicemen from the community. Mukherjee said India will never hesitate to take all possible steps for the welfare of ex-servicemen.

“Every year about Nepalese Rs (NPR) 3,100 crore of pensions is being distributed in Nepal. In the current financial year, the target is to distribute about NPR 4,000 crore of pension as per One Rank One Pension and Seventh Pay Commission,” he said.

Brief of the meeting to discuss 7th CPC recommendation for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners : NC JCM Staff Side

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Brief of the meeting held under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Pension), Government of India on 06.10.2016, to discuss 7th CPC recommendation for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners

 

In the meeting, referred to above, the Official Side expressed doubt to have details of service particulars, i.e. date of promotion and subsequent increment etc., specially pre- 01.01.2006 retirees. As such, it may not be feasible to fix-up pension, taking into account of increment received in the post from which one has retired from service.

As per opinion of the Secretary (Pension), “if recommendation No.1 is accepted, Service Record of certain persons may not be located. This will lead to number of litigations. However, we have produced certain pension dockets wherein all these things are available (where calculation of Qualifying Service was undertaken) and such option should be left with individual pensioner as per ones advantage. The Official Side lastly suggested that, parity in pension, as was granted after the recommendation of V CPC, w.e.f. 01.01.1996, may be adopted for determining the method (notional) of all pre-01.01.2016 pensioners.

Next meeting in this regard will be held at 10:00 hrs. on 13th October, 2016. Further, the matter of National Pension System (NPS) will be referred to a separate committee. We have impressed upon the Secretary (Pension) that, four months time is running out. As such, decision on revision of pension of pre-01.01.2016 retirees and the matter of the NPS should be decided without any further loss of time. Meeting on Allowances, which was slated to be held on 13th October, 2016, has been postponed to 25th October, 2016.

Item No. Recommendation for past Defence Forces personnel Decision of Government
1 Revision of Pension of pre 7th CPC retirees
The Commission recommends the following pension formulation for Defence Forces Personnel who have retired before 01.01.2016 :

(i) All the Defence Forces who retired prior to 01.01.2016 (expected date of implementation of the Seventh CPC recommendations ) shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by this Commission, on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the matrix. This amount shall be raised, to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree, by adding the number of increments he 1 she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. Military Service Pay shall be added to the amount which is arrived at after notionally fitting him in the 7th CPC matrix. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.

(ii) The second calculation to be carried out is as follows. The pension, as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations, shall be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.

(iii) Pensioners shall be entitled to the higher of the two.

It is recognized that the fixation of the pension as per formulation (i) above may take a little time since the records of each pensioner will have to be checked to ascertain the number of increments earned in the retiring level. It is, therefore, recommended that in the first instance the pension, may be fixed in terms of formulation (ii) above, till final fixation of the pension under the Seventh CPC matrix is undertaken.

(Para 10.2.87 & 10.2.88 of the Report)

Both the options recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission as regards pension revision be accepted subject to feasibility of the implementation.
