A child who is not earning equal to or more than the sum of minimum family pension and dearness relief thereon is considered to be dependent on his/her parents. Therefore, only those children who are dependent and meet other conditions of eligibility for family pension at the time of death of the Government servant or his/her spouse, whichever is later, are eligible for family pension.

3. Grievances were being received from various quarters that the divorce proceedings are a long drawn procedure which take many years before attaining finality. There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of a daughter of Government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life of one or both Government employee/pensioner & spouse, but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority.

4. The matter has been examined in this department and it has been decided that the clarification “grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed tn a competent court during the life time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death-provided the claimant fulfils all other conditions for grant of family pension. In such cases, the family pension will commence from the date of divorce” given by Government of India. Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions’, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare vide 0M No.1/13/09- P&PW (E) dated 19.07.2017 would also apply mutatis mutandis to divorced daughters of Armed Force personnel.

5. This issues with the concurrence ofthe Finance Division of this Ministry vide their ID No.10(09)/2015/Fin/Pen dated 17.10.2017.

6. Hindi version will follow.

7th Pay Commission – SBI Releases arrears for Veterans

7th Pay Commission – SBI Releases arrears for Veterans

Public sector bank State Bank of India (SBI) said that it has released Rs 3,323.24 crore in arrears to defence pensioners as part of the 7th Pay Commission on Friday. The bank released the amount to about 9.94 lakh pensioners, Rajnish Kumar, managing director (national banking group), said in a statement.

Last month, the bank released about Rs 4,003 crore worth in arrears to 4.60 lakh retired services pensioners. The bank serves to the largest share of central government pensioners across the country and to about 50 percent of total defence pensioners.

This means that so far, roughly Rs 7,300 crore worth in arrears has been released to defence pensioners till now.

In October, the defence ministry had said that it had deferred the representation of the armed forces for a percentage-based system rather than a slab-based system for determining disability pension to the Anomaly Committee of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC).

The move followed criticism from the opposition parties and the defence forces over a letter issued on September 30, which had stated that a slab-based system will replace the percentage method of calculating the pension for the disability pension for the Army, Navy and the Air Force personnel.

“Service Headquarters have represented that the percentage based system should be continued under the 7th pay commission for calculating disability pension for Defence Services at par with their Civilian counterparts. The Ministry has referred the representation of the Service Headquarters to the Anomaly Committee of 7th pay commission for consideration,” a statement by the defence ministry stated.

Panel on OROP not hearing individuals: ex-serviceman tells HC

Panel on OROP not hearing individuals: ex-serviceman tells HC

New Delhi: Delhi High Court was today told that the one-member judicial commission, set up to deal with grievances of ex-servicemen on One Rank One Pension (OROP), was not hearing issues raised by an individual but dealing only with contentions raised by organisations.

The Centre refuted the claims before a bench of justices B D Ahmed and Ashutosh Kumar saying the commission was hearing the grievances raised before it not only by organisations but by individuals also.

The bench was hearing a plea seeking directions to Ministry of Defence and the commission, headed by Justice (Retd) L Narasimha Reddy, “to give an effective public hearing to those affected or aggrieved by implementation of OROP”.

When the matter came up for hearing, petitioner S P Singh told the bench he had approached the commission with his grievances but was not heard and told that the panel was only hearing the contentions of organisations.

The petitioner also claimed that armed forces officers were sitting with the panel despite the fact that it was a one-member judicial commission.

Central government standing counsel Anurag Ahluwalia refuted the claims of the petitioner saying the commission was also hearing the grievances of individuals and the officers were present to assist the panel.

He also said the petitioner was heard by the panel.

The bench then asked the petitioner to file an affidavit stating that he was not given an opportunity by the commission to put forth his grievances and posted the matter for further hearing on September 28.

The Centre had earlier told the court it has extended by six months the term of the one-member panel on OROP.

The petitioner, who is an ex-serviceman, has said that as per a Ministry letter dated April 13, “Defence Forces pensioners/family pensioners, Defence Pensioners’ Associations can submit their suggestions/views on the revised pension as notified, to the MoD, through post or by email within 15 days i.E. By April 29, 2016″.

The petitioner had contended that this information was not published in the newspapers and, therefore, people were not informed about it. He had said that the time given to forward the representations was “very short”.

The Centre had told the court that date for forwarding suggestions and representations was later extended to May 15.

Issue of Pension Slip to Defence Pensioners/family pensioners: PCDA

Issue of Pension Slip to Defence Pensioners/family pensioners: PCDA

Office of the Principal Controller of Defence Accounts (Pension),

Draupadi Ghat, Allahabad-211014

Circular No. 184

No. AT/Tech/70-XXIV

Dated: 06.06.2016

Sub: Issue of Pension Slip to Defence Pensioners/family pensioners.

Attention is drawn to RBI letter No. DGBA.GAD. N o. H-10975/45.05.031/2006-07 dated January 9, 2007 instructing all the agencies banks to issue pension slip to all the Armed Forces Personnel/Defence Civilian Pensioners including family pensioners at the commencement of pension and thereafter whenever there is a change in the quantum of pension. RBI’s above instruction was also forwarded by this office to all banks vide this office circular N o. 128 dt. 13.07.2007.

Besides above, whenever any circular was issued by this office after 6th CPC implementation, Pension Disbursing Agencies were requested to send intimation regarding disbursement of revised pension to this office in the format prescribed with the circular concerned. Pension Disbursing Agencies were simultaneously requested to provide invariably a copy of the said format to the pensioner concerned. A brief details of circulars issued and format prescribed for intimation of revision to be carried out by PDA to this office as well as pensioners is given below.

Sl.No. Circular No. & date Proforma
1.  397 dt.18.11.2008  Annexure –IV
2. 430 dt.10.03.2010 Annexure C
3. 501 dt. 17.01.2013  Annexure D
4. 502 dt. 17.01.2013 Annexure C
5. 555 dt. 04.02.2016 Annexure B
6. 57 dt. 17.09.2008  Annexure-II

However, it has been brought to the notice of this office that Pension Disbursing Agencies are not providing the details of revised pension/family pension to the pensioners/family pensioners. Thereby due to lack of knowledge pensioners are not sure about correctness of the amount of the arrears being paid to them and most of them have a sense of suspicion against the revision.

To overcome above suspicion, it is requested that an explanatory sheet as per the enclosed format may be provided to all defence pensioners/family pensioners invariably.
