Cabinet approves revised salaries, gratuity, allowances and pension for the Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts

Cabinet approves revised salaries, gratuity, allowances and pension for the Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts

Rrevised-salaries-gratuity-allowances,-7thCPC-judges

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the revision in the salaries, gratuity, allowances, pension etc. of the Judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts and retired Judges of Supreme Court and High Courts. It follows the implementation of recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission in respect of Civil Servants.

The approval will pave the way for necessary amendments in the two laws viz. Supreme Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1958 and High Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1954, which govern the salaries of Chief Justice of India (CJI), Judges of Supreme Court of India, Chief Justices and all Judges of High Courts.

The increase in the salary and allowances etc. will benefit 31 Judges of Supreme Court of India (including the CJI) and 1079 Judges(including the Chief Justices) of High Courts. Besides, approximately 2500 retired Judges will also be benefited on account of revision of pension/gratuity etc.

Arrears on account of revised salaries, gratuity, pension and family pension w.e.f 01.01.2016 will be paid as one time lump sum payment.

Background:

Salaries, gratuity, pension, allowances etc. in respect of Judges of Supreme Court are governed by the Supreme Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1958. Salaries etc. of Judges of High Courts are governed by High Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Act, 1954. An amendment in the Acts is required whenever there is any proposal for revision of salaries/pension gratuity, allowances etc. in respect of Judges of Supreme Court and High Courts. Therefore, Government proposes to move a Bill in the Parliament in the ensuing Session for amendment in the relevant Acts for giving effect to the revision of salaries and allowances.

PFRDA takes a new initiative to increase pension coverage by increasing the incentives payable to Points of Presence (POPs), the principal distributive points for NPS

PFRDA takes a new initiative to increase pension coverage by increasing the incentives payable to Points of Presence (POPs), the principal distributive points for NPS

Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) has taken several initiatives in the past few years to increase pension coverage in the country, notably introducing e-NPS, reducing minimum contribution levels, new investment instruments, aggressive life cycle funds etc.

PFRDA has now taken a further step in this direction by increasing the incentives payable to Points of Presence (POPs), the principal distributive points for National Pension System (NPS).

The following Table gives the details of increase in incentives:


Principal Distribution Point

Services offered

Current Charge

New Charge
POP Initial Subscriber Registration* Rs. 125/- Rs. 200/-
Initial Contribution 0.25% of the contribution Min: Rs.
20/- & Max : Rs.25,000/-
0.25% of the contribution Min: Rs.
20/- & Max : Rs.25,000/-
All Subsequent Contribution
All Non-Financial Transaction Rs. 20/- Rs. 20/-
Persistency* —– > Rs. 50/- per annum (only for NPS-All
Citizen)
e-NPS* (for subsequent contributions) 0.05% of the contribution Min Rs 5/-
& Max Rs 5000/- (Only for NPS- All Citizen and Tier-II Accounts)
0.10% of the contribution Min Rs 10/-
& Max Rs 10000/- (Only for NPS- All Citizen and Tier-II Accounts)

*Changes effected A new incentive towards increasing persistency has been introduced under which POPs will receive an incentive of Rs. 50/- per account per annum for every account which continues to contribute a minimum of Rs 1000/- in a financial year.

PFRDA believes that the renewed incentive will help in increasing the reach of pensions in India, through the efforts of Points of presence (POPs).

Over 69 lacs subscribers join Atal Pension Yojana with contribution of Rs. 2690 crores

Over 69 lacs subscribers join Atal Pension Yojana with contribution of Rs. 2690 crores

Secretary DFS: Still Scope for increasing pension coverage

Atal Pension Yojana currently has over 69 lacs subscribers with contribution of Rs. 2690.00 crores. Chairman, PFRDA Shri Hemant G Contractor however emphasised the need of increasing the pension coverage in India at a recently concluded conference on Atal Pension Yojana. The conference organised by Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) in the national capital saw participation from all major banks, representatives from NPCI, SCHIL, SIDBI, Access Assist and some major MFIs.

A large section of the society still does not have access to pensions and this is a cause of concern for PFRDA and Government, Shri Contactor said. Congratulating the winners of the contest organised by PFRDA the Chairman said that APY has made progress in covering the intended subscribers but much remains to be done. He mentioned that on an average, a little less than 2% of the eligible population is covered under APY and hence a lot has to be done to provide people a regular access to old age income. He also touched upon the issues of persistence in the APY accounts and asserted that the objective of the scheme is to provide pension and this will only happen if the contribution in the account has been regularly paid. He urged the APY Service Providers to educate the subscribers on the importance of the same. He also urged upon the APY Service Providers i.e Banks and Post Offices under Department of Post to achieve the targets allocated by government by putting in their best efforts.

A video message of Shri Rajiv Kumar, Secretary DFS was played during the occasion. Shri Rajiv Kumar mentioned that Atal Pension Yojana is flagship program of the Government of India under financial inclusion and financial security. The pension coverage in this country is at around 12% and banks and other stakeholder need to work towards greater coverage under the scheme. He also said that DFS is monitoring the progress under the scheme and targets allocated under the scheme to banks should be accomplished. He touched upon the subject of providing a digital platform for APY by PFRDA i.e e-APY. Secretary Shri Rajiv Kumar congratulated the banks on their performance under the campaigns and urged them to continue the work.

While the government has a pension scheme for the BPL persons but the amount is meagre and is not sufficient for old age needs. 9% of the population of India, i.e 110 million people are over 60 years and by 2030 this figure is expected to cross 180 million. The 60 plus age groups is the fastest growing demographic in the country. With increase in longevity of the people, disintegration of the joint family system in India and inflation, there is greater need for old age than ever before. Currently pension benefits are available India basically to the organised sector. Atal Pension Yojana introduced in 2015 by Government of India provides a self- contributory savings pension scheme with guaranteed pension of Rs. 1,000/- to Rs. 5,000/- with a very low contribution by the subscriber. All banks and Department of Post have pushed the product to the interiors of the country. APY has option for increasing the pension amount from Rs. 1000/- to any other amount up to Rs. 5000/- as per the savings capacity of the subscriber, and further allows the spouse to continue the account in the event of the death of the subscriber before the age of sixty years. PFRDA has also been engaging with various State Governments for providing co-contribution under the scheme. With the introduction of e-APY through Aadhaar, the banks will be able to effectively utilise the digital platform for greater coverage.

Married daughter to get family pension during pendency of divorce case

Married daughter to get family pension during pendency of divorce case

New Delhi: The married daughter of a central government employee, who is no more, will get family pension even during the pendency of a divorce case, the Centre has said.

Existing rules allow divorced daughters to get family pension only if a decree of divorce had been issued by the competent court during the life time of at least one of the parents.

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has recently changed rules to help such women facing divorce cases in court.

The decision comes as the government was receiving grievances from various quarters that the divorce proceedings take years before attaining finality.

There are many cases in which the divorce proceedings of the daughter of a government employee/pensioner had been instituted in the competent court during the life time of one or both of the parents but none of them was alive by the time the decree of divorce was granted by the competent authority, the ministry said.

“The matter has been examined in this department in consultation with Department of Expenditure and it has been decided to grant family pension to a divorced daughter in such cases where the divorce proceedings had been filed in a competent court during the life-time of the employee/pensioner or his/her spouse but divorce took place after their death,” the ministry said.

However, the grant of family pension will be subjected to fulfilment of other eligibility criteria as well, it added.

Family pension is given to a spouse of a dead government servant or to dependent children.

Simplification of pension procedure – Papers submitted in time-limit then PPO be handed over before retirement: DoP&PW Order

Simplification of pension procedure – Papers submitted in time-limit then PPO be handed over before retirement: DoP&PW Order

No. 1/27/2011-P&PW (E)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, P.G. & Pensions
Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare

3rd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhavan,
Khan Market, New Delhi,
the 1st August, 2017

Office Memorandum

Sub: Simplification of pension procedure (i) Handing over of PPO to the retiring employee by the Head of Office before retirement and

(ii) Submission of undertaking by retiring Government servant along with pension papers – reg.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this department’s Office Memorandum of even number, dated 7th May, 2014 (copy available at departmental website), vide which provision had been made that the undertaking to be submitted by the retiring Government servant/pensioner to the pension disbursing bank to refund or make good any amount to which he is not entitled may be obtained by the Head of Office from the retiring Government servant along with Form 5 and other documents before his retirement. This undertaking is forwarded to the pension disbursing bank along with the Pension Payment Order (PPO) by the Accounts Officer/CPAO following the usual procedure. The bank shall credit the pension to the account of the pensioner as soon as this Undertaking is received along with the pension documents.

2. The pensioner is no longer required to visit the bank to activate the first payment of pension. Therefore, after ascertaining that the Bank’s copy has been despatched by the Central Pension Accounting Office, the pensioner’s copy of the PPO is to be handed over to him at the time of retirement along with other retirement dues. This should be feasible in all cases where the Government servant had submitted pension papers within the time-limits prescribed in the Central Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1972.

3. An employee posted at a location away from the office of the Head of Office or who for any other reasons feels that it would be more convenient to him to obtain his copy of PPO from the bank, may inform the Head of Office of his option in writing while submitting his pension papers.

4. However, in the recent past, many instances have come to the notice of this Department wherein the pensioner’s copy of the PPO had not been handed over to him/her and instead had been sent to the Bank and the same was lost in transit sometimes thereby causing hardship to the pensioner.

5. In view of the foregoing, all Ministries/Departments are once again requested to strictly follow the above procedure henceforth viz., handing over the copy of pensioner PPO to him/her at the time of retirement along with other retirement dues except if the pensioner specifically requests for delivering his/her copy of PPO through bank. Department of Posts and Department of Telecommunications are requested to make suitable amendments to the instructions to the Accounts Officers and pension disbursing Post Offices/Banks to adhere to the above procedure.
