Revision of pension of pre- 2016 pensioners/family pensioners –  O.M.12th may 2017

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

7th CPC Pension Calculation for Pre-2016 Pensioners – KarnatakaCOC

7th CPC Pension Calculation for Pre-2016 Pensioners – KarnatakaCOC

What the above decision means for pre-2016 retirees?

Modification made appears fixing the pay of pre 2016 retirees notionally in revised pay matrix and then fixing pension at 50% of pay. If the pension so fixed is more than the pension fixed with fitment formula of 2.57 then pension will be revised otherwise no change. It is presumed that option will be given to pensioners. For arriving at pay in revised matrix of 7 CPC for those who retired prior to 1-1-1996 notionally there pay will be fixed under V CPC scales and VI CPC Pay structure. Similarly for those who retired prior to 2006 it will be notionally fixed in VI CPC Pay structure and then in 7 CPC matrix. The pay for this purpose is pay last drawn as recorded in their PPO. For the information of readers fixation formula under V CPC, VI CPC and VII CPC rules is given below:

V CPC:

1 Basic pay as on 1-1-1996 xxx
2 DA appropriate to basic pay at 1510 pts Xxx
3 I IR 100
4 2nd IR 10% of BP subject to minimum of Rs.100 Xxx
5 40% of BP Xxx
6 Total xxx

Pay in the revised scales to be fixed at the stage next above the total even if there is stage equal to the total.

Rates of DA as on 1-1-1996

For pay range upto Rs.3500pm 148% of pay
For pay range above Rs.35oo and upto 6000 pm 111% of pay subject to a minimum of Rs.5180 pm
For pay range above Rs.6000 pm 96% of pay subject to minimum of Rs.6660 pm

VI CPC

1 Existing pay scale x
2 Applicable pay band and grade pay a+b
3 Basic pay as on 1-1-2006 xxx
4 Pay after multiplication of BP by a factor 1.86 rounded off to next multiple of 10 Xxx
5 Pay in the pay band Xxx
6 Grade Pay applicable to the post b
7 Revised basic pay is pay in the pay band and grade pay.

VII CPC

1 Existing Pay Band a
2 Existing Grade Pay a+b
3 Basic pay as on 1-1-2016 Xxx+b
4 Level corresponding to GP C
5 Pay after multiplication of BP by a fitment factor of 2.57 Xxx
6 Revised Pay in Pay Matrix (either equal to or next higherCell Xxx

Illustration:

‘X retired on 31-1-1992 and pay was Rs. 2900 in the scale 1640-2900

1. His notional pay under 5 CPC scale of 6500-10600 is Rs.8900;

2. His notional pay under 6 CPC (PB2 +GP 4200) is Rs.20760;

3. His notional pay under 7 CPC (Level 6) is Rs.53600;

4. Pension fixed on 1-1-2016 with a fitment formula of 2.57 is Rs.25847;

5. Pension as per cabinet decision 50% of notional pay as per 7 CPC is Rs 26800.

Note: The above example is only an illustration.
The pension fixation may vary from case to case. Final calculation has to be made as per the Government orders.

Sub: Conducting of Agitation Programme for settlement of Charter of Demands of Defence Civilian Employees – reg.

Sir,
Indian National Defence Workers Federation in its 21st Conference held on 21nd and 22nd March, 2017 unanimously resolved to conduct agitation programme from 24.04.2017 to 29.04.2017 in order to demand Ministry of Defence and Government of India to settle the demands.

INDWF being one of the constituent organisations of National Council (JCM) under the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) of Central Government Employees. NJCA deferred the proposed Indefinite Strike which was to commence from 11.07.2016 based on the assurances given by the group of Ministers Chaired by Shri Rajnath Singh, Hon’ble Home Minister that Government will constitute committee on on Minimum Pay, Fitment Formula, Allowances, NPS and Pre-2016 pensioners. It was also the National Council (JCM) within 4 months. However, even after more than 6 months it is regretted to note that none of the demands of the NJCA pertaining to 7th CPC are accepted by the Government Employees in genera and Defence Civilian Employees in particular.

In addition to the above, it is to be pertinent to mention that the Government is going ahead very fast to privatise and outsource the entire defence production activities. We are in dark about the development which is taking place about the letter received from Hon’ble Prime Minister’s office to the Department of Defence Production and OFB asking various information’s of the production activities of the above unhelpful attitude and decision of Government of India and Ministry of Defence, the Defence Civilian Employees are very much agitated in this regard. Therefore, the Indian National Defence Workers Federation has decided to observe All India Demand Week from 24.04.2017 to 29.04.2017 by holding gate meetings, demonstration, wearing demand badges and submit memorandum for your favourable consideration and for early settlement of these demands.

CHARTER OF DEMANDS

1. Stop privatisation and outsourcing of Defence Production and withdraw 100% in Defence

2. Fill up all the existing vacancies including freezed vacancies during the period of ban on recruitment considering the increased work load.

3. Withdraw NEW PENSION SCHEME (NPS) for the Defence Civilian Employees and extend Defined Pension facilities at par with Armed Forces personnel as per CCS Pension Rules 1972 ensuring 50°/o pension on the last pay drawn and also extend Family Pension. Disability pension.

4 Regularise all the Casual. Contract, Outsource employees, Part time employees employed in permanent and perennial jobs.

5. Withdraw arbitrary decisions of stopping detailment of employees on Sundays/Holidays working in Ordnance Factories in order to achieve the projected targets.

6. Early implementation of granting of Allowances on 7m CPC Pay scales on HRA, TA and Other Allowances. Revise the Minimum Pay, implement 7th CPC recommendation of Option-I for pensioners and accepted by Government regarding pension of pre-2016 Pensioners without any further delay

Yours Sincerely.

7th CPC recommendation Pay determination in the case of Pre-2016 pensioners Option No. I Examination of feasibility

NC-JCM-2016/7th CPC (Pension)

October 17, 2016

The Secretary,
Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare,
Govt. of India,
Sardar Patel Bhawan, New Delhi.

Dear Sir,
Sub: 7th CPC recommendation. Pay determination in the case of Pre 2016 pensioners. Option No. I Examination of feasibility.

 

Ref: Minutes of the meeting of the Committee in F.No.38/37/2016 P&PW(A) Dated 10th October, 2016

 

We refer to the discussions held On 6.10.2016 in matter of feasibility Of acting upon the 7thy CPC recommendations (Option No. I) in the matter of pension computation and the minutes circulated under cover of the letter cited. At the outset, we would like to slate that the members of the Staff Side, Who were associated with the discussions, gained an impression that the Pension Department would not like to implement the recommendation of the 7th CPC concerning Option No.1 provided to the pensioners in determination or the revised pension. As has been pointed out by us during the discussions on 6t October, the Government has accepted the said recommendation with a rider of its feasibility of implementation. The attempt, therefore, must be to explore the and means of implementing the said recommendation, which benefits a large number of retired personnel, especially those retired prior to 1996. It is, therefore. highly doubtful how any alternate proposal in replacement of the accepted recommendation would be tenable.

We have the matter considered by various Pensioners Associations as also the Federations of the Serving employees. We enumerate here under the feed back we have received:

Even according to the exercise carried out by the Pension department, only in of the cases, the service Books are reported to have been available. Conversely it means that in 82% of the cases the records are available to operationalize Option No.1. Besides, we find that on the basis of a random scrutiny that only 40% (Percentage varies from Department to Department depending upon the then prevailing career prospects) generally will opt to have pension fixation under the provisions of option No.I. It Will work out to hardly 7% of the cases, where Service Books might not be available. As has been pointed out in the last meeting Gradation/Seniority list is maintained for each Cadre by the Concerned Department, where the date of promotion to the cadre inter alia is indicated. The said gradation list will reveal many other details viz the date or birth, dale of entry into government service, date of promotion to the cadre, whether eligible for next promotion, due or superannuation etc. This apart there are other documents maintained by the Department, which will come in handy for verification of the clam, viz, the pay bills. Establishment files containing promotion orders etc. In other words it is possible to the claim of my individual pensioner or family and take appropriate decision. In other words, there is no infeasibility question at all. It was also pointed out by many organisations that retention period of Service Books in all major Departments or the Government of India is 5 years after the death of the Pensioner/Family Pensioner and not 3 years after retirement as indicated by the Official side at the meeting. This apart, it may also he noted that the option has to be exercised by the concerned individual pensioner and he has to make a formal application to the concerned authorities. He is bound to substantiate his claim with documentary proof, whatever that is available with him.

As was pointed out by some of us in the last meeting, the implementation of an accepted recommendation on the specious plea of infeasibility will pave way for plethora of litigation. Apart from the administrative difficulties, the Pension Department would be saddled With if such litigation arise, it would be sad and cruel on the part of the Government to compel the pensioners to bear huge financial burden to pursue their case before the courts of law.

In view of this the Staff side is of the firm view that the Government issue orders for implementation of Option No.I as there is no room for stating that recommendation is impossible to be implemented for those who are benefited by the said option.

We are aware that certain anomalies are bound to arise on implementation of option No.I. Anomalies have arisen in the past too. What is needed is to examine those anomalies and ensure that those are genuinely addressed.

It may be noted that even under the present dispensation, no two Government servants are entitled for the same pension despite they being retired on from the same grade on the same day. The promotion in lower cadres especially Group B, C and D had been and between a decade back in many departments and continues to be the situation in certain organisations or the Government of India. The vacancy based promotion system, one must admit, operates in a fortuitous manner. For no fault of the individual employee, he/she may retire without getting a whereas his colleague due to sheer luck might get the promotion at the fag end of the career.

The case of those employees retired prior to the advent of ACP or MACP is really pathetic. That had to remain in certain departments in the same cadres for years together. They are in receipt of a paltry amount of pension though there is nothing distinguishable in their service careers for such deprivation. To deny them the benefit provided by the 7th CPC on the specious plea that the relevant records are not available with the Government may not only be unreasonable but also will not stand the test of judicial scrutiny.

As have stated in the meeting, the alternative suggestion put forth by the official side is a welcome feature , for it might be step in the right direction to remove the anomaly pointed out by the official side when Option No-I is implemented and will benefit those pensioners who got their promotion the end of their career. It is also likely to bring about certain extent of parity, if not full, between the old and the pensioners. However it cannot be in replacement of the recommendation in respect or Option No.1 made by the 7th CPC. The alternate suggestion of the Pension Department may be offered as another option to the pensioners who are not benefited either by Option No.1 or 2 recommended by the 7th CPC. Such an option will eliminate to a great extent the anomalies that might arise from the implementation of option No.1.

 

In fine, we request that:

 

The Pensioners/family pensioners may be allowed to choose any one of the following three options;

 

(a) 2.57 time of the pension if that is beneficial.

(b) Option No.1. Recommended by the 7th CPC, if that is beneficial for them.

(c) To determine the Pension on the basis of the suggestion placed by the Pension Department on 

6.10.2016 i.e. extension of the benefit of pension determination recommended by the 5th CPC (viz. arriving at notional pay in the 7th CPC by applying formula for pay revision for serving employees in each Pay Commission and consequent pension fixation) to all pre 2016 Pensioners/family pensioners, if that becomes beneficial to them.

 

Yours Faithfully,

Under this column, banks have to fill “7” for the cases which have been revised under 7th CPC by them”. Further, in the Column No. 27 of Format-F in e-scroll titled “Pay Commission” 7th CPC may be incorporated and sent alongwith Format-A. Each CPPC must attach Format-F with each e-scroll.
6 Who would do Ex-gratia payment revision? The DP&PW oM No.38/37/2016-P&PW (A) (ii), dated 04.08.2016 is meant for revision of pension only of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners for which banks have been authorized to revise the pensions and make payment accordingly. Revision of ex-gratia payment is to be dealt with in accordance with para 12.1 of DP&PW oM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) (i), dated 04.08.2016. The ex-gratia revision cases are required to be dealt with by the Department concerned and not by banks
7 Specific case of the Chief Election Commissioner In this context para 2.3 of DP&PW OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) (ii), dated-04.08.2016 clearly states that these orders do not apply to the retired High Court and Supreme Court Judges and other Constitutional/ Statutory Authorities whose pension etc. is governed by separate rules/orders.
8 How to deal with cases where pension is being paid on 5th CPC rates.  Following categories:-

i) Employees suspended before 2006 and also retired before 01.01.2006.

ii) Employees suspended before 2006 but retired after 01.01.2006.

iii) Employees who retired before 2006 and against whom departmental/judicial proceedings were
pending at the time of retirement.

were allowed to draw provisional pension in the pre-2006 pay scales.
Later on DP&PW vide 38/6/2010-P&PW (A)(pt) dated18.03.2013 had decided to revise all such cases of provisional pensions in terms of their OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated-01.09.2008. As such these cases may be referred to the concerned Ministry/Department for revising them first as per 6th CPC before they are revised under 7th CPC.

9 Applicability of 7th CPC revisions to various categories of pensioners. As per para 2.1 of DP&PW OM No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) (ii) dated-4th August, 2016, “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, Central Civil Services (Extraordinary Pension) Rules 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”.

The categories of pensioners further clarified by Director, DP&PW to SBI is as under:-

i) The pension of Defence Civilian Pensioners, Postal and Telecom Pensioners under CDA category is regulated by CCS (Pension) Rules. These pensioners are, therefore, eligible for revision of pension under OM dated 4.8.16. However the absorbee pensioners of BSNL/MTNL who are getting pension under IDA category are not covered by this OM. The absorbee pensioners who had taken lump-sum in lieu of their monthly pension and are getting only one-third restored pension are also not covered by this OM.

ii) The State Government pensioners are not eligible for revision of pension under this OM. However the All India Service officers and employees retired from CAG/AGs/Audit & Accounts Departments in States are covered under this OM.

10 Applicability of Additional Pension on attaining the age of 65 years to the pensioners of UT Chandigarh on the pattern of Punjab State Government A clarification has been sought from IS (UT), MHA and DP&PW Central Government instructions allow additional pension only on attaining age of 80 years and above. Therefore, the additional payment on attaining the age of 65 years in case of UT Chandigarh pensioners banks should not grant additional pension on attaining the age of 65 years instead of 80 years until a
clarification regarding applicability is received.

Feasibility of implementation of recommendations accepted by GOI contained in paras 10.1.67 & 10.1.68 of 7CPC report

7th CPC recommendations – Open to amendments & corrections : Proposed draft representation regarding implementation of option 1 para 10.1.67

Representation on implementation of option -1 of 7th CPC relating to pre 2016 pensioners.

 

No. SG/BPS/PC7/016/08.

Dt.19 August, 2016

The Secretary
Deptt of Administrative Reforms & Pensioner’ Grievances,
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions,
Patel Bhawan, New Delhi – 110001.
( Kind Attention: Shri Chirravuri Vishwanath IAS ).

 

Subject: Feasibility of implementation of recommendations accepted by GOI contained in paras 10.1.67 & 10.1.68 of 7CPC report.

 

Sir,
In connection with feasibility of implementation of recommendation contained in para 10.1.67 of 7CPC report relating to pre-2016 pensioners, the undersigned, on behalf of Bharat Pensioners Samaj (Federation) a conglomerate of over 628 pensioners Associations, submits as follows:

 

i). Your kind attention is invited to 5th CPC recommendation contained in Para 137.14 of the report together with GOI’s decision there on which reads as under:

 

The pension of all pre-1986 retirees may be updated by notional fixation of their pay as on 1.1.1986 by adopting the same formula as for the serving employees. Thereafter, all the past pensioners who have been brought on the Fourth CPC pay scales by notional fixation of their pay and those who have retired on or after 1.1.1986 can be treated alike regarding consolidation of their pension as on 1.1.1996 by allowing the same fitment weightage as may be allowed to the serving employees. However, the consolidated revised pay of the post held by the pensioner at the time of retirement. (137.14)

 

Govt Decision:

Accepted to the extent that pension of pre 1.1.96 retirees including pre-86 retirees shall be consolidated as on 1.1.1996 as recommended but the consolidated pension shall be brought on to the level of 50% of the minimum of the revised pay of the post held by the pensioner at the time of retirement. Nos. 45/86/97-P&PW(A) Part-II dt. 27.1099 & 45/1098-P&PW(A) dt 17.12.98 refer.

 

ii). Similarly 6th CPC recommendation on the subject of revision of pre-2006 pensioners were possible as per GOI orders contained in F No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 01.09.2008 and amendments issued by DOP& PW thru F No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28-01-2013 wherein para 4.2 reads ” That is, the fixation of pension will be subject to the provision that the revised pension , in no case shall be lower than 50% of the minimum of the pay in the pay band plus grade pay corresponding to the pre revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired. In case of HAG+ and above scales, this will be 50% of the minimum of the revised pay scale.”

 

iii). Pension record is of permanent nature and if it is to be destroyed, proper permission from the competent authority is to be obtained. In any case, these record can always be reconstructed taking the details from various sources available in the department and the material collected from the Pensioner. In this regard attention is also drawn to recent CAT Bombay Nagpur Bench judgement dated 09.03.2015 in case of Smt. Saija vs. General Manager, Central Railway O.A.No. 2131 of 2011(CAT Bombay Bench at Nagpur) It is also pointed out that never ever any department in any of the Court cases brought out the issue of non-availability of records.

 

2. It was possible to implement the above recommendations of pay panels and issue revise PPOs as records were traced out, probably due to some incentive given to the staff concerned for revising the PPOs of pre-1986 retirees involving notional fixation. Railway administration for certain gave incentive to the staff concerned for implementing 5th CPC recommendations. It is reliably learnt that as no incentive for additional work involved in revision of PPOs after 6thCPC was offered. Rly Admn did face some difficulties in implementing recommendations of 6th CPC and consequential issue of revised PPOs to pre-2006 retirees, still as per Rly Board 100% PPOs could be revised. Govt. records can speak of the position of incentive offered by various departments concerned. It is one of the suggestions to consider incentive to staff to ease the problem of locating old records/information required, since in 90% cases records are available and remaining can be recasted.

 

3. 7th CPC considered the long standing demand of pensioners retired in earlier CPCs regimes to grant them parity in fixation of pension with those retiring subsequently after implementation of its report. Accordingly, 7th CPC has recommended granting benefit of increments earned by the pensioner in the Pay Band and Grade Pay/Scale of Pay for 01.01.2006 Pensioners, while determining their notional pay as on 01-01-2016 at a level in the pay matrix given by the 7th CPC. Pension would be fixed at 50% of the notional pay so arrived.

 

4. Apprehension of non-feasibility of recommendation, discussed in para 3 , due to non-availability of records is further narrowed & not zeroed. PPOs issued at the time of retirement and revised afterwards do reflect changes prescribed by the Govt. in the pay scales on the recommendations of different Pay Commissions, record the stage of pay in the Pay Scale/Pay Band of a person retired. But it is silent on the number of increments earned after promotion to the grade in which a particular pensioner had retired. May please recall that pay fixation on promotion, as per FR 22, is arrived at after granting one increment in the pre-promotion scale followed by stepping up the same to the immediate next stage of pay in the higher grade if there is no stage after grant of increment in the lower grade. Some of the promotees may get fixed at the minimum (First stage) of the higher grade whereas others may get fixed at the second or third next stage depending upon the pay in the lower grade.

 

5. The recommendation of 7thCPC vide their para10.1.67(option1) for Parity of Pension is based on legal & Constitutional grounds and as such to maintain sanctity it needs to be implemented in toto.

 

6. It is a history that pensioners retired earlier were always at a discount in the matter of revised pensions.7th CPC has tried to give some relief to pre-2016 retirees. For the purpose of determining pension under para 10.1.67 of 7th CPC in cases where all attempts to trace records or to recast missing ones fail, it is suggested that such of the pensioners may be given option to get their notional pay determined on the basis of stage of pay in the grade indicated in the PPO this information is invariablaly available in all PPOs. If in some PPOs if LPD is not indicated it can be determined from family pension which is 30% of LPD

 

7. Fixation of notional pay of pre 2016 pensioners on the basis of the stage corresponding to the grade of pay in which a pensioner had retired would offer a fair & equitable option in all cases where records cannot be traced inspite of best efforts.

 

8 To meet the ends of justice, Bharat pensioners Samaj request that a personal hearing be granted to its delegation before any adverse decision is arrived at by the Committee.

Thanking you in anticipation.

 

With regards

Yours sincerely

Let all pre 2016 pensioners individually / collectively, Pensioners Federations and Association send representation to the Secy. ARPG/Chairman & to other members of the committee constituted to study feasibility

Let all pre 2016 pensioners individually / collectively, Pensioners Federations and Association send representation to the Secy. ARPG/Chairman & to other members of the committee constituted to study feasibility. 

 

Recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission relating to principles which should govern the structure of pension and other terminal benefits and the decisions of the Government thereon

 

Item 11 Recommendation:

Revision of Pension of pre 7th CPC retirees The Commission recommends the following pension formulation for civil employees including CAPF personnel who have retired before 01.01.2016

 

(i) All the Civilian personnel including CAPF 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 / she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. 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 may be given the option of choosing whichever formulation is beneficial to them. It is recognized that the fixation of pension as per formulation in (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 revised pension may be calculated as at (ii) above and the same may, be paid as an interim measure. In the event calculation as per (i) above yields a higher amount the difference may be paid subsequently. (Para 10.1.67 and Para 10.1.68 of the Report)

 

Decision of the Government Of India

Both the options recommended by the Central Pay Commission as regards pension revision be accepted subject to feasibility of the implementation. Revision of pension using the second option based on fitment factor of 2.57 be implemented immediately. The first option may be made applicable if its implementation is found feasible after examination by the Committee comprising Secretary (Pension) as Chairman and Member (Staff). Railway Board, Member (Staff), Department of Posts, Additional Secretary & Financial Adviser, Ministry of Home Affairs and Controller General of  Accounts as Members .

 

BHARAT Pensioners SAMAJ Remarks:

Recommendation is feasible & can be easily implemented:

 

1.Level 6 to 16 at  index 1 can be implemented w/o any difficulty as only revised PPO after 6th CPC  is required.

 

Lacs of 6th CPC modified parity beneficiaries will get benefited.

 

Example

PB 3 15600-39100  GP 6600 minimum pension= 12600 as per 6th CPC modified parity modified multiplied by 2.57 i.e. option II will give revised pension =Rs32382/- But as per option I minimum level index 1 considering that Nil increment was drawn in the retiring scale minimum pension comes to 67700/2=Rs 33850/ i.e. Rs 1468/PM more than what he/she will get by multiplying basic pension as on 1.1.16 by 2.57

 

  1. Service record is a permanent one and if it to be destroyed, proper permission from the

Competent Authority is to be obtained. In any case, service record can always be reconstructed

taking the details from various sources available in the department and the material collected from the Pensioner. This has been done in the past while implementing parity enunciated by fifth CPC and even while implementing modified parity of 6th CPC. In this regard attention is also drawn to recent CAT Bombay Nagpur Bench judgement dated 09.03.2015 in case of Smt. Saija v.General Manager, Central Railway O.A.No. 2131 of 2011(CAT Bombay Bench at Nagpur)

3 Rejection of the above recommendation on the ground of feasibility will not only cause wide spread discontent against the Govt but also lead to spate of Court cases.

 

4.Let all pre 2016 pensioners individually / collectively, Pensioners Federations and Association send representation to the Secy. ARPG/Chairman & to other members of the committee constituted to study feasibility.

Acceptance of Option Number 1 of the 7th CPC Recommendations on Parity of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners

Acceptance of Option Number 1 of the 7th CPC Recommendations on Parity of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners

No.AIPRPA / 1/6/2016 Dated 09.06.2016

Dear Sir,

Subject:- Acceptance of Option Number 1 of the 7th CPC Recommendations on Parity of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners – regarding.

 

We are deeply shocked to learn through the Staff Side JCM that the Defense Ministry and the Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare are objecting to the implementation of the recommendation made by the 7th CPC on offering an Option to notionally add the number of increments earned in the last pay scale before retirement for calculating the minimum pension to past pensioners. The objection of the Defense Ministry is shocking as it had recently consented to the grant of One Rank One Pension to its own Pensioners. The objection of the Pensioners Ministry that this recommendation is not feasible due to non-availability of service records of Pensioners is most unjustified.

The non-acceptance of this recommendation will cause a major financial loss to many Pre-2016 Pensioners. It should be borne in mind that the Fifth CPC while evolving the norm of modified parity had mentioned in its Report that further improvements could be brought about by future Pay Commissions. It is after 20 years that 7th CPC taking a step in this direction recommended consideration of number of increments earned in that level while in service. The recommendation cannot be set aside on the plea of non-availability of record.

The issue, therefore, needs reconsideration especially in view of the following points:

i) Service Records are protected documents and cannot be destroyed without specific orders of the competent authority; Even if the Service Records of some of the Pensioners were not available, the same can be reconstructed/recast as per prescribed procedures and as per directions of various courts issued from time to time in such cases.
ii) All the Past Pensioners cannot be made to suffer heavy financial loss due to some missing records – which can in any way be reconstructed as stated above.
iii) 5th & 6th Pay Commissions had recommended for grant of Modified Parity to past Pensioners. The orders were implemented on the basis of service records.
iv) Recommendations of the 7th CPC in Para 10.1.67 (option 1) for Parity of Pension of Past (Pre-2016) Pensioners were based on legal and Constitutional grounds.

It is, therefore, requested that the Government should reject the opinions of both the Defense Ministry and the DOP&PW as well as the Empowered Committee and approve the recommendation of 7th CPC regarding option Number 1 to grant Parity to Pre-2016 Pensioners.

Thanking you Sir,

Yours faithfully,
K.Ragavendran
General Secretary AIPRPA

Dear Sir,

Subject:- Parity of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners with Post-2016 Pensioners – as per Recommendations of Seventh Pay Commission. Reference: Para 10.1.67 of Seventh Pay Commission Report

1. We are deeply anguished and shocked to learn from the Secretary Staff Side, JCM, that you had indicated in the meeting with the representatives of JCM Staff Side on 26-5-2016, that the Departments of Pension and Defence were of the view that the first option recommended by the 7th CPC to bring about the parity with the past pensioners is unfeasible and impracticable – due to the non-availability of the requisite records.

2. Denial of Parity to Past Pensioners is going to cause a major financial loss to the Past Pensioners and would naturally agitate them seriously. The issue, therefore, needs reconsideration especially in view of the following points:

i) Service Records are protected documents and cannot be destroyed without specific orders of the competent authority.

ii) The views of the DOP&PW & Defence about the non-availability of the requisite records are too vague, unfounded and unjustified;

iii) Even if the Service Records of some of the Pensioners were not available, the same can be reconstructed/recast as per prescribed procedures and as per directions of various courts issued from time to time in such cases.

iv) All the Past Pensioners cannot be made to suffer heavy financial loss due to some missing records – which can in any way be reconstructed as stated above.

v) 5th & 6th Pay Commissions had recommended for grant of Modified Parity to past Pensioners. The orders were implemented on the basis of service records.

vi) Fifth CPC while evolving the norm of modified parity had mentioned in its Report that further improvements could be brought about by future Pay Commissions. It is after 20 years that 7th CPC taking a step in this direction recommended consideration of number of increments earned in that level while in service. The recommendation cannot be set aside on the plea of non-availability of record.

vii) Recommendations of the 7th CPC in Para 10.1.67 (option 1) for Parity of Pension of Past (Pre-2016) Pensioners were based on legal and Constitutional grounds and, as such, the same may please be implemented.

3. It is, therefore, requested that:

a) Recommendation of the Seventh CPC regarding option I for fixation of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners may please be implemented – keeping in view the above submissions.

b) Pay Matrix may please be modified so as to give equitable rise at all levels through same Index for fixation of Pay & Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners.

c) Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners who were senior and retired in higher Level of Posts may please be revised at par with the junior Post 2016 Pensioners who may get higher pension due to merger of Pay scales or having longer years of service in lower scale.

Yours truly,

(Harchandan Singh)

Secretary General,

RSCWS
