(All Head of Department under Min. of Defence)

Subject: – Implementation of Govt’s decisions on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission-Revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners, etc.

Reference: – (i) GOI, Deptt. of P&PW O.M. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A), dt. 6th July, 2017.

(ii) This office important circular no. C-164, bearing no.G1/C/0199/Vol-I/Tech, dated 30th May 2017.

GoI, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievance and Pensions, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare has issued a CONCORDANCE TABLE vide O.M. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A), dated 6th July, 2017 for revision of pension of pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners based on notional pay fixed as on 01.01.2016. A copy of the same has been uploaded on this office website www.pcdapension.nic.in for easy accessibility of all concerned. This table should be used to arrive at notional basic pay in the pay matrix of 7th CPC.

2. Reference of this office DO letter of even no. dt. 02/06/2017 is also invited, under which it was requested to all HODs that a Nodal Officer may be nominated who can be contacted for expediting the process and resolving any issue which is encountered. Details such as telephone number, mobile no., email -id etc. may kindly be intimated immediately if not already done, by email to gograntonecivil.dad[at]hub.nic.in .

3 Reference may kindly be made to this office circular no. C-164 dated 30.05.2017 wherein methodology for revision of pension consequent upon issue of GOI, DP&PW OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A), dated 12.05.2017 was conveyed. Several queries in form of letter, email, phone calls are being received for clarification of certain provisions of the ibid circular. It has been decided, therefore to circulate such clarification through this circular. Hence, topic wise clarifications are appended below:-1

a). HOO Code:

(i) At Para 20 of the circular C-164 dated 30.05.2017, it was mentioned that HOO code shall to be obtained by sending email to pcdapedp.cgda@nic.in in the prescribed proforma duly signed by Head of Office (HOO) and Head of Department (HOD). It has been seen that request for HOO code allotment is being received in this office in very sparse manner. Since, this code is mandatory for preparation of LPC-cum- Datasheet and also for transmission of PPOs to Head of Offices, it is requested to impress upon the Head of Offices functioning under your jurisdiction to kindly forward the request for allotment of HOO code immediately in prescribed manner. It is worthwhile to mention here that the term ‘Head of Department’ refer to organization such as OFB, AOC, ENG., DRDO, AF, Navy, DAD, Coast Guard etc. and Head of Office indicates the Unit (say a Factories under OFB, a laboratories under DRDO etc.) which are required to send claim for pension sanction/revision to this office. It is also planned to soon modify existing LPC-cum- Datasheet which is presently being used for processing regular pension claims for other types of pension including superannuation etc. Therefore, timely allotment of HOO Code will avoid any delay in preparation of pension claims.

(ii) It may be kept in mind while filling HOO registration form that column ORGANISATION should be filled with organisation code(as being filled in 1st column of existing LPCs) of HOD. For example if HOD is Factory organisation then ORGANISATION Column shall be filled as : 01.

(iii) It has been observed that in some cases HOO Code has been allotted, but the same isshowing error while filling LPC-cum- Datasheet through Utility because the leading zero is dropped and then the code consists of 5 digits only. The utility has been updated and the revised version of the utility is now available on this office website www.pcdapension.nic.in .

b) LPC-CUM-DATA SHEET

(i). HOO Name (Column2):- It has also been observed that in the field of ‘HOO Name’ name of officer holding that appointment is mentioned. In this regard, attention is invited to filling instructions of Column 2 which mentions clearly that the column will be filled with ‘office name’ of the pensioners. For example if Govt. employee retired from HQ CWE SHIMLA HILLS JUTGAON CANTT SHIMLA, this column shall be filled as HQ CWE SHIMLA. In no case, name of the officer who is Head of the Unit or appointed to act as HOO under Delegation of Financial Power Rules 1976 should be mentioned.

(ii) In the field of PPO no., slashes ‘/’ are also being indicated. While it is clearly mentioned in filling instruction that PPO no. should be filled without slashes. For example if PPO no. is C/MISC/10250/2016, it should be filled as CMISC102502016 .

(iii) Date of Birth, Date of Appointment and Date of Retirement should be filled in (MMDDYYYY) format. For example if Date of Birth is 5th February 1950 it shall be filled as 02/05/1950. Alternatively calendar facility provided in the utility may be used.

(iv) It has been observed that pay scale at the time of retirement is not being filled in the corresponding column as provision mentioned under the caption ” PAY DETAILS”. For example: if, Govt. employee retired under 4th CPC in Pay scales 5900-200-7300 with last pay drawn 6100/- all columns from 4th CPC Pay Scale and onward should be filled properly. For example :-

4th CPC Scale (as 01.01.1986) : 31 (5900-200-7300)
4th CPC Pay/Notional Pay (as 01.01.1986) : 6100
5th CPC Pay (as 01.01.1996) : 29 (18400-500-22400)
5th CPC Pay/Notional Pay (as 01.01.1996) : 18400
6th CPC Pay Band(as 01.01.2006) : 4 (PB-IV)
Grade Pay (as 01.01.2006) : 10000
6th CPC Pay/Notional Pay (01.01.2006) without grade pay : 44700
7th CPC Level of Pay : L14
7th CPC Pay Index : 1
7th CPC Notional Pay (as on 01.01.2016) : 144200

(v) Basic Pension as on 01.01.2016 (Column 29) It has been observed that in some cases this column is filled with 50% of notional pay as on 01.01.2016, which is not correct. Filling instruction in this regard is very clear, this column is meant to reflect basic pension as on 01/01/2016 as per pre-revised scale of 6th CPC. In other words pensionary entitlement under 6th CPC should be multiplied by 2.57 and this results need to be reflected in this column.

(vi) Name of PDA (Column 45) : As per filling instructions if PDA is Bank (Code-9), then filling of Column no. 45 to 51 i.e. PDA Station, Name of Bank, Bank Account no., IFSC code of Paying Branch and BSR Code of CPPC must not be left blank.

c) Vetting of Data Sheet

(i). At Para 20 of the circular C-164 dated 30.05.2017, it was mentioned that in the annexed proforma of LPC-Cum-Data Sheet, the claim will be forwarded along with all concerned documents by the H.O.O/H.O.D to PCDA (Pension) Allahabad after getting it vetted from PAO/LAO attached. In this connection it is clarified that it is not necessary to get LPC-cum- Datasheet vetted by both authority i.e by PAO and LAO. Any one of the two may vet the LPC-cum- Datasheet before forwarding to this office.

4. In view of the foregoing, Head of Departments are requested to issue suitable instructions (along with copy of this circular) to all the Head of Offices under their administrative control to ensure that claims on the subject matter are floated in accordance with clarification given in above Paras without delay. It is further requested that HOD’s may evolve suitable mechanism to monitor progress in forwarding of LPC-cum-Data Sheet by their sub -offices functioning as on Head of Office.

No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A)
Ministry of Personnel, PG & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare

3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan
Khan Market, New Delhi
Dated :12.05.2017

Office Memorandum

Sub:- Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners, etc.

The undersigned is directed to say that the 7th Central Pay Commission (7th CPC), in its Report, recommended two formulations for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners. A Resolution No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated 04.08.2016 was issued by this Department indicating the decisions taken by the Government on the various recommendations of the 7th CPC on pensionary matters.

2.Based on the decisions taken by the Government on the recommendations of the 7th CPC, orders for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners in accordance with second Formulation were issued vide this Department’s OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016. It was provided in this O.M. that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016 of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners shall be determined by multiplying the pension/family pension as had been fixed at the time of implementation of the recommendations of the 6th CPC, by 2.57.

3.In accordance with the decision mentioned in this Department’s Resolution 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated 04.08.2016 and OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016, the feasibility of the first option recommended by 7th CPC has been examined by a Committee headed by Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare.

4. The aforesaid Committee has submitted its Report and the recommendations made by the Committee have been considered by the Government. Accordingly, it has been decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, 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. This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed. 50% of the notional pay as on 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 as per the first Formulation. In the case of family pensioners who were entitled to family pension at enhanced rate, the revised family pension shall be 50% of the notional pay as on 01.01.2016 and shall be payable till the period up to which family pension at enhanced rate is admissible as per rules. The amount of revised pension/family pension so arrived at shall be rounded off to next higher rupee.

5.It has also been decided that higher of the two Formulations i,e. the pension/family pension already revised in accordance with this Department’s OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 or the revised pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 above, shall be granted to pre-2016 central civil pensioners as revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016. In cases where pension/family pension being paid w.e.f. 1.1.2016 in accordance with this Departments OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 happens to be more than pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 above, the pension/family pension already being paid shall be treated as revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016.

6. Instructions were issued vide this Department’s OM No. 45/86/97-P&PW(A) (iii) dated 10.02.1998 for revision of pension/ family pension in respect of Government servants who retired or died before 01.01.1986, by notional fixation of their pay in the scale of pay introduced with effect from 01.01.1986. The notional pay so worked out as on 01.01.1986 was treated as average emoluments/last pay for the purpose of calculation of notional pension/family pension as on 01.01.1986. The notional pension/family pension so arrived at was further revised with effect from 01.1996 and was paid in accordance with the instructions issued for revision of pension/family pension of pre-1996 pensioners/family pensioners in implementation of the recommendations of the 5th Central Pay Commission.

7. Accordingly, for the purpose of calculation of notional pay w.e.f. 1.1.2016 of those Government servants who retired or died before 01.01.1986, the pay scale and the notional pay as on 1.1.1986, as arrived at in terms of the instructions issued vide this Department’s OM 45/86/97-P&PW(A) dated 10.02.1998, will be treated as the pay scale and the pay of the concerned Government servant as on 1.1.1986. In the case of those Government servants who retired or died on or after 01.01.1986 but before 1.1.2016, the actual pay and the pay scale from which they retired or died would be taken into consideration for the purpose of calculation of the notional pay as on 1.1.2016 in accordance with para 4 above.

8.The minimum pension with effect from 01.01.2016 will be Rs. 9000/- per month (excluding the element of additional pension to old pensioners). The upper ceiling on pension/family pension will be 50% and 30% respectively of the highest pay in the Government (The highest pay in the Government is Rs. 2,50,000 with effect from 01.01.2016).

9.The pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with provisions of Para 4 and 5 above shall be treated as ‘Basic Pension’ with effect from 01.01.2016. The revised pension/family pension includes dearness relief sanctioned from 1.2016 and shall qualify for grant of Dearness Relief sanctioned thereafter.

10.The existing instructions regarding regulation of dearness relief to employed/re-employed pensioners/family pensioners, as contained in Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare O.M. No. 45173/97-P&PW(G) dated 02.07.1999, as amended from time to time, shall continue to apply.

11. These orders would not be applicable for the purpose of revision of pension of those pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of the CCS (Pension) Rules or compassionate allowance under Rule 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules. The pensioners in these categories would continue to be entitled to revised pension in accordance with the instructions contained in this Department’s M. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A)(ii) dated 4.8.2016.

12. The pension of the pensioners who are drawing monthly pension from the Government on permanent absorption in public sector undertakings/autonomous bodies will also be revised in accordance with these orders. However, separate orders will be issued for revision of pension of those pensioners who had earlier drawn one time lump sum terminal benefits on absorption in public sector undertakings, etc. and are drawing one-third restored pension as per the instructions issued by this Department from time to time.

13.In cases where, on permanent absorption in public sector undertakings/autonomous bodies, the terms of absorption and/or the rules permit grant of family pension under the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or the corresponding rules applicable to Railway employees/members of All India Services, the family pension being drawn by family pensioners will be updated in accordance with these orders.

14.Since the consolidated pension will be inclusive of commuted portion of pension, if any, the commuted portion will be deducted from the said amount while making monthly disbursements.

15.The quantum of age-related pension/family pension available to the old pensioners/ family pensioners shall continue to be as follows:-

Aqe of pensioner/family pensioner Additional quantum of pension
From 80 years to less than 85 years 20% of revised basic pension/ family pension
From 85 years to less than 90 years 30% of revised basic pension / family pension
From 90 years to less than 95 years 40% of revised basic pension / family pension
From 95 years to less than 100 years 50% of revised basic pension / family pension
100 years or more 100% of revised basic pension / family pension

The amount of additional pension will be shown distinctly in the pension payment order.

For Example, in case where a pensioner is more than 80 years of age and his/her revised pension is Rs.10,000 pm, the pension will be shown as (i).Basic pension=Rs.10,000 and (ii) Additional pension = Rs.2,000 pm. The pension on his/her attaining the age of 85 years will be shown as (1).Basic Pension = Rs.10,000 and (ii) additional pension = Rs.3,000 pm. Dearness relief will be admissible on the additional pension available to the old pensioners also.

16.A few examples of calculation of pension/family pension in the manner prescribed above are given in Annexure-1 to this O.M.

17.No arrears on account of revision of Pension/Family pension on notional fixation of pay will be admissible for the period prior to 1.1.2016. The arrears on account of revision of pension/family pension in terms of these orders would be admissible with effect from 01.01.2016. For calculation of arrears becoming due on the revision of pension/ family pension on the basis of this 0.M., the arrears of pension and the revised pension/family pension already paid on revision of pension/family pension in accordance with the instructions contained in this Department’s OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated 04.08.2016 shall be adjusted.

18. It shall be the responsibility of the Head of Department and Pay and Accounts Office attached to that office from which the Government servant had retired or was working last before his death to revise the pension/ family pension of pre – 2016 pensioners/ family pensioners with effect from 01.01.2016 in accordance with these orders and to issue a revised pension payment authority. The Pension Sanctioning Authority would impress upon the concerned Head of Office for fixation of pay on notional basis at the earliest and issue revised authority at the earliest. The revised authority will be issued under the existing PPO number and would travel to the Pension Disbursing Authority through the same channel through which the original PPO had travelled.

19.These orders shall apply to all pensioners/family pensioners who were drawing pension/family pension before 1.1.2016 under the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972, and the corresponding rules applicable to Railway pensioners and pensioners of All India Services, including officers of the Indian Civil Service retired from service on or after 1.1.1973. A pensioner/family pensioner who became entitled to pension/family pension with effect from 01.01.2016 consequent on retirement/death of Government servant on 31.12.2015, would also be covered by these orders. Separate orders will be issued by the Ministry of Defence in regard to Armed Forces pensioners/family pensioners.

Modifications in the 7th CPC recommendations on pay and pensionary benefits approved by the Cabinet on 3rd May, 2017

Modifications in the 7th CPC recommendations on pay and pensionary benefits approved by the Cabinet on 3rd May, 2017

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi approved important proposals relating to modifications in the 7th CPC (Central Pay Commission) recommendations on pay and pensionary benefits in the course of their implementation. Earlier, on 29th June, 2016, the Cabinet had approved implementation of the recommendations with an additional financial outgo of Rs.84,933 crore for 2016-17 (including arrears for 2 months of 2015-16).

The benefit of the proposed modifications will be available with effect from 1stJanuary, 2016, i.e., the date of implementation of 7th CPC recommendations. With the increase approved by the Cabinet, the annual pension bill alone of the Central Government is likely to be Rs.1,76,071 crore. Some of the important decisions of the Cabinet are mentioned below:

1. Revision of pension of pre -2016 pensioners and family pensioners

The Cabinet approved modifications in the recommendations of the 7th CPC relating to the method of revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners and family pensioners based on suggestions made by the Committee chaired by Secretary (Pensions) constituted with the approvalof the Cabinet. The modified formulation of pension revision approved by the Cabinet will entail an additional benefit to the pensioners and an additional expenditure of approximately Rs.5031 crore for 2016-17 over and above the expenditure already incurred in revision of pension as per the second formulation based on fitment factor. It will benefit over 55 lakh pre-2016 civil and defence pensioners and family pensioners.

While approving the implementation of the 7th CPC recommendations on 29thJune, 2016,the Cabinet had approved the changed method of pension revision recommended by the 7th CPC for pre-2016 pensioners, comprising of two alternative formulations, subject to the feasibility of the first formulation which was to be examined by the Committee.

In terms of the Cabinet decision, pensions of pre-2016 pensioners were revised as per the second formulation multiplying existing pension by a fitment factor of 2.57, though the pensioners were to be given the option of choosing the more beneficial of thetwo formulationsas per the 7th CPC recommendations.

In order to provide the more beneficial option to the pensioners, Cabinet has accepted the recommendations of the Committee, which has suggested revision of pension based on information contained in the Pension Payment Order (PPO) issued to every pensioner. The revised procedure of fixation of notional pay is more scientific, rational and implementable in all the cases. The Committee reached its findings based on an analysis of hundreds of live pension cases. The modified formulation will be beneficial to more pensioners than the first formulation recommended by the 7th CPC, which was not found to be feasible to implement on account of non-availability of records in a large number of cases and was also found to be prone to several anomalies.

2. Disability Pension for Defence Pensioners

The Cabinet also approved the retention of percentage-based regime of disability pension implemented post 6thCPC, which the 7th CPC had recommended to be replaced by a slab-based system.

The issue of disability pension was referred to the National Anomaly Committee by the Ministry of Defence on account of the representation received from the Defence Forces to retain the slab-based system, as it would have resulted in reduction in the amount of disability pension for existing pensioners and a reduction in the amount of disability pension for future retirees when compared to percentage-based disability pension.

The decision which will benefit existing and future Defence pensioners would entailan additional expenditure of approximatelyRs.130 crore per annum.

3. Changes in Pay Structure and Revision of the three Pay Matrices:

The Cabinet, while approving the 7th CPC recommendations for their implementation on 29thJune, had made two modifications in the Defence Pay Matrix as under:

(i) Index of Rationalisation (IOR) of Level 13A (Brigadier) may be increased from 2.57 to 2.67.

(ii) Additional 3 stages in Levels 12A (Lt. Col.) , 3 stages in Level 13 (Colonel) and 2 stages in Level 13A (Brigadier) may be added.

The Cabinet has now approved further modifications in the pay structure and the three Pay Matrices, i.e. Civil, Defence and Military Nursing Service (MNS). The modifications are listed below:

(i) Defence Pay Matrixhas been extended to 40 stages similar to the Civil Pay Matrix: The 7th CPC had recommended a compact Pay Matrix for Defence Forces personnel keeping in view the number of levels, age and retirement profiles of the service personnel.Ministry of Defence raised the issue that the compact nature of the Defence Pay Matrix may lead to stagnation for JCOs in Defence Forces and proposed that the Defence Pay Matrix be extended to 40 stages. The Cabinet decisionto extendthe Defence Pay Matrix will benefit the JCOs who can continue in service without facing any stagnation till their retirement age of 57 years.

(ii) IOR for Levels 12 A(Lt. Col. and equivalent)and 13(Colonel and equivalent)in the Defence Pay Matrix and Level 13 (Director and equivalent)in the Civil Pay Matrix has been increased from 2.57 to 2.67: Variable IOR ranging from 2.57 to 2.81 has been applied by the 7th CPC to arrive at Minimum Pay in each Level on the premise that with enhancement of Levels from PayBand 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and onwards, the role, responsibility and accountability increases at each step in the hierarchy. This principle has not been applied in respect of Levels 12A (Lt. Col. and equivalent), 13 (Colonel and equivalent) and 13A (Brigadier and equivalent) of Defence Pay Matrix and Level 13 (Director and equivalent) of the Civil Pay Matrix on the ground that there was a disproportionate increase in entry pay at the level pertaining to GP 8700 in the 6thCPC regime. The IOR for Level 13A (Brigadier and equivalent) in the Defence Pay Matrix has already been revised upwards with the approval of the Cabinet earlier. In view of the request from Ministry of Defence for raising the IOR for Levels 12 A and 13 of the Defence Pay Matrix and requests from others, the IOR for these levels has beenrevised upwards to ensure uniformity of approach in determining the IOR.

(iii) To give effect to the decisions to extend the Defence Pay Matrix and to enhance the IORs, the three Pay Matrices -Civil, Defence and MNS -have also been revised. While doing so, two calculation errors noticed in the MNS Pay Matrix have also been rectified.

(iv) To ensure against reduction in pay, benefit of pay protection in the form of Personal Pay was earlier extended to officers when posted on deputation under Central Staffing Scheme (CSS) with the approval of Cabinet. The benefit will also be available to officers coming on Central Deputation on posts not covered under the CSS.

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.
