Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh discusses Insurance and Pension related issues with Dr Jitendra Singh

14 MAY 2018

A delegation of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), represented by its Pratiraksha (Industrial) unit called on the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and discussed wide range of issues related to Central Government employees, including Insurance, Pension, promotions and other matters.

In a memorandum presented to the Minister, the delegation submitted that the Central Government Employees Group Insurance Scheme was notified on 1st November 1980 and came into effect from 1st January 1982. The scheme is intended to provide Central Government employees, at a low cost, on a wholly contributory and self-financing basis, the twin benefits of an insurance cover to their families in the event of death in service and a lump-sum payment to augment their financial sources on retirement. However, the BMS demands that the government should immediately notify the customized Group Insurance Scheme for Central Government employees with low premium and high risk cover.

The memorandum also expressed discontentment of a section of employees for being left out from the provision of minimum guaranteed pension under National Pension Scheme (NPS). It requested that a minimum pension be guaranteed equivalent to 50% of the employee’s last drawn Basic Pay plus Dearness Relief for neutralization of price rise.

Among other issues raised by the delegation was the demand for one-time relaxation for compassionate appointments. This has become important because a large number of wards are waiting for their appointment on compassionate grounds to look after their family.

The delegation also demanded the framing of an appropriate transfer policy in all cadres in favour of single woman/single mother employees. They requested that whenever such women are given postings, it should be mandatorily ensured that they are placed at stations closest to their hometown or the place of their choice.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that he will direct the DoPT to process the issues related to them, while other issues related to other Ministries will be referred for the perusal and views of the respective Ministries.

Payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners

O/o the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension)
Draupadighat, Allahabad-211014
Circular No. 200

No. AT/Tech/263-XXIII

Dated: 12/04/2018

Sub: Payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners: Clarification thereof.

Ref: This office Circular No. 166 dated 07/03/2013, Circular No. 173 dated 07/04/2014 and Circular No. 179 dated 12/05/2015.

Provisions for payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners is laid down in Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions (Deptt. of Pension & Pensioners Welfare) OM No.45/73/97-P85PW(G) dated 02/07/1999 issued under this office Important Circular No. 07 dated 13/08/1999. As per the ibid OM, before 18/07/ 1997, in terms of the existing orders, Dearness Relief to pensioners and family pensioners is to remain suspended during the period a pensioner/family pensioner is re-employed/employed under the Central or State Govt. or in a Statutory Corporation/Company/Body/Bank under them in India or abroad. The above facts are also applicable to the pensioners and family pensioners permanently absorbed in Statutory Corporation/Company/Body/Bank under the Central or State Government.

2. Representations from various agencies as well as pensioners/family pensioners including Pension Disbursing Agencies are being received for clarification on Payment of dearness relief to re-employed pensioners and employed family pensioners. The matter has been examined in this office and following points are clarified.

3. However, w.e.f. 18/07/ 1997, it has been decided by the Govt that:

(i) In so far as re-employed pensioners are concerned, the entire pension admissible is to be ignored at present only in the case of those civilian pensioners who held post below Group ‘A’ and those ex-servicemen who held post below the ranks of Commissioned Officers at the time of their retirement. Their pay, on re-employment, is to be fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which they are re-employed. Such pensioners will consequently be entitled to Dearness Relief on their pension.

(A) For this purpose, the Central Government Departments concerned, including subordinate organizations. State Government, Corporation/ Company/ Body/ Bank etc. employing a Central Government pensioner shall be required to issue of certificate indicating the following:

(a) The re-employed pensioner retired from a civil or military post in the Central Government and was holding a post not included in classified as group ‘A’ or a post below the rank of commissioned officer in the armed forces;

(b) The entire amount of pension sanctioned by the Central Government was ignored in fixation of the pay on re-employment i.e. no part of the pension was taken into account in such fixation of pay in the pay scale of the post in which the Central government retired / retiree was re-employed / absorbed; and

(c) The pay of the re-employed/absorbee was/is fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which he had/ has been initially re-employed after his retirement from the Central Government.

(d) If the pay fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of the last pay drawn is being given.

(B) In the cases where PBOR (below Commissioned Officer) retired before attaining the age of 55 years and re-employed thereafter and their pay fixed at a higher stage because of advance increments and no protection of the last pay drawn were given, the pay should be treated as fixed at a minimum for the purpose of ignoring the entire pension and allowing Dearness Relief on pension. For benefit of advance increments, the policy for the same should exist in the re-employing department and a copy of such policy matter should be enclosed with the required certificate. But, after granting benefit of advance increments, the last pay drawn by the pensioner is protected, the pensioner in such case will not be entitled for dearness relief on pension.

Illustration 1: A Military pensioner was drawing the pay of Rs. 6,330 in the pay scale of Rs. 5,770-140-8,290 from 01/07/2002 and retired from service on 31/ 10/2002 before attaining the age of 55 years. He was granted a military pension of Rs. 3,165. He was re-employed in a Civil Post on 01/12/2003 in the pay scale of Rs. 5,000-150-8,000. The post which the pensioner held in the Army before retirement is a non-commissioned post. If his pay is fix for Rs. 5,600 / – after granting 4 advance increments in re-employed post, then he will be entitled for dearness relief on pension as his pay fix for Rs. 5,600/- in re-employed post is less than Rs. 6,330/- already drawing in the Army before retirement. However, if his pay is fix for Rs. 6,500 / – after granting 10 advance increments in the re-employed post, then he will be not entitled for dearness relief on pension as his pay fix for Rs. 6,500 / – in re-employed post is more than Rs. 6,330 / – already drawing in the Army before retirement as his last pay has been protected.

Illustration 2: If the pensioner quoted in Illustration 1 above is re-employed in a Civil Post in the pay Scale of Rs. 7,500-250-12,000, his pay is required to be fixed at the minimum of the pay scale of the re-employed post for payment of dearness relief on pension. Any advance increment granted in such situation, will disqualify dearness relief on pension.

(ii) In all other cases of re-employed pensioners, no dearness relief shall be admissible on pension during the period of their re-employment.

(iii)

(A) In terms of the existing orders on the subject, the pay of re-employed pensioners who held Group ‘A’ post or posts of the ranks of Commissioned Officers at the time of their retirement is to be fixed at present

  • at the same stage as last drawn before retirement or, if there is no such stage, at the stage next above the pay last drawn;
  • at the maximum of the pay scale, if the pay last drawn is more than the maximum of the pay scale of the post in which re-employed;
  • at the minimum of the pay scale of the post in which re-employed, if it is more than the pay last drawn.

(B) Further, the pay on re-employment is required to be fixed after ignoring only a portion of the pension as revised time to time received for the previous employment. In view of the fact that (i) the pension is taken into account in such cases and not entirely ignored; (ii) The pay in the post of re-employment is not required to be fixed at the minimum of the scale in all cases; and (iii) Dearness Allowance at the rates applicable from time to time is also admissible on the pay fixed in terms of the orders on the subject, these re-employed pensioners will not be entitled, in addition, to any Dearness Relief on their pension.

(iv) Disability element of disability pension is also a type of pension. As such dearness relief on such service / disability pension (including disability element) during re-employment is required to be regulated as per the above procedure.

(v) Payment of dearness relief where discontinued due to re-employment, shall become admissible only with effect from the date they cease to be re-employed. The Pension Disbursing Authority shall require such a pensioner to produce certificate of cessation of re-employment from the office in which the pensioner had been re-employed.

(vi) However, dearness relief is payable to those re-employed pensioners who get consolidated pay without dearness allowance, consolidated fee, daily wages, or elected as Members of Legislative Assembly or Parliament, Ministers / Deputy Ministers of Central or State Government, Indian Red Cross Society and Extra Departmental Agents in the Department of Post.

(vii) As regards employed family pensioners, since the family pension received by the eligible dependents of Central Government employees is, in any case, not taken into account in determining their pay on employment, Dearness Relief at the rates applicable from time to time shall be admissible on their family pension.

Enhanced DA after Retirement on 30th June and 31st December to be considered for Retirement Benefits

Shri. JVSR.Krishna raised an important issue in our comments forum. Considering the merits of this issue, we posted here to draw the attention of authorities concerned to take necessary action to address the grievances of similarly placed retiring government servants.

Dearness Allowance & Dearness Relief:

As per the prevailing conditions, Govt of India sanctioning DA once in 6 months i.e. 1st Jan. & 1st July. Based on consumer price index, due to raise in the inflation for the period of once in 6 months i.e. 1st Jan. to 30th June & 1st July to 31st December respectively DA being sanctioned to those Central Govt. employees and as DR to the Central Govt. Pensioners. This DA/DR is cumulatively added every month, for administrative convenience, it was being sanctioned once in 6 months. For those Central Govt. employees who were having DOB 1st of any month are being forcibly superannuated on the last working day of the preceding month. Particularly, those who were having DOB 1st Jan. & 1st July, though they have completed 6 months, sanctioned DA was not considered for calculating Retirement benefits viz. Gratuity & Leave encashment purpose.

Retired Government servants is entitled for revised rate of D.A

whether a retired Government servant is entitled for revised rate of D.A., which comes into force after such Government servant retires from service on attaining the age of superannuation.

As per the Honble. CAT judgement, DA was allowed for calculation of retirement benefits; to those retired on 30th June (DA was sanctioned next to their retirement date. The said case was appealed in Honble. High Court of A.P. the WP was dismissed, further, Govt. of India appealed as SLP in Honble. Supreme Court of India, there also it was dismissed.

Orders were issued for implementation of DA to the Central Govt. Servants, who were working in Accountant General Office, Hyderabad. The same was implemented.

Since, it is a common issue, individuals who were worked in various Departments of Central Govt. should not insisted that who ever will proceed litigation, it will be implemented. It shall be implemented across the board to all the employees to save the money & man power of Govt. of India to avoid litigations.
