Office Memorandum

Subject:  Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre- 2016 Pensioners/ Family Pensioners, etc.-reg.

DP&PW vide OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW (A) dated-12.05.2017 on the above subject had issued detailed instructions to all concerned to revise the pensions of pre-2016 pensioners/ family pensioners. But while issuing instructions to PAOs vide CPAOs OM No. CPAO /IT& Tech/ Revision (7th CPC)/ 19 Vol-III/2016-17/37 dated-25.05.2017 inadvertently an important point “that 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 get revised pension in accordance with the instructions contained in DP&PW O.M. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A)(ii) dated 04.08.2016″ was missed.

Consequently, it has been noticed that some Ministries/Departments have revised the pensions of pensioners who were drawing compulsory retirement pension under Rule 40 of CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 or Compassionate allowance under 41 of the CCS (Pension) Rules also and sent to CPAO. These cases are to be returned to the concerned PAOs by CPAO.

In view of the above, to avoid any further problems arising out of it, all Pr. CCAs/CCAs/ CAs/ AGs/ Administrators of UPS are requested to instruct their PAOs not to revise such cases.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.

Instructions have been issued regarding revision of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners in line with 7th CPC recommendations vide Railway Board’s letter under reference above. These instructions envisage ‘suo moto’ revision in pension for all pre-2016 retirees. Till date 151982 pensioners PPO have been revised.

It may be appreciated that against the 14 lakh pensioners cases on Indian Railways, the pace of pension revision is slow. In the recently held review meeting, additional secretary (Expenditure) has also emphasized that adequate priority may be given to this area of work. Finance Secretary also expressed that exercise of pension revision may be completed in a time-bound manner. In this connection, Financial Commissioner, vide his DO letter No.2016/AC-II/21/8/PT-III dated 5.9.2017 has also advised that the exercise of revision may be carried out on a parallel track alongwith ARPAN to expedite the process.

As a welfare measure, it should be ensured to step up with pace for revision of pension. The work flow of pension revision envisages close coordination between the personnel and the accounts Department and hence, it is advised that PCPO and PFA to monitor the progress of revision of pension cases at their level to ensure that pension revision exercise is completed at the earliest.

Central Government Pensioners: Appeal for restoration of Option 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners

Central Government Pensioners: Appeal for restoration of Option 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners

7th CPC  :  Appeal for restoration of option 1  for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners

No. RSCWS/ HO / 7th CPC/2017-16

Dated: 23rd August, 2017

Shri Narindera Modi, Hon. Prime Minister India, 152, South Block, New Delhi-110001
Shri Arun Jaitley, Hon. Minister of Finance, Govt. of India, North Block, New Delhi-110001
Shri Jitendra Singh, Hon. MOS Personnel, PG & Pension, GOI, North Block, New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Subject: Appeal for restoration of Option 1 recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners – For Parity of Pension between Pre & Post-2016 Central Government Pensioners

Reference: i) DOP&PW OM No.38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12th May, 2017 & 6th July, 2017 ii) Para 10.1.67 of 7th CPC Report for grant of Parity of Pension of Pre & Post Seventh CPC Pensioners

1. We draw your kind attention to the sad plight of large majority of Central Government Pensioners – especially the Pre-2006 Pensioners and more so the Pre-1996 Pensioners, who will suffer a major financial loss in fixation of their Revised Pension on account of an unjust decision on implementation of 7th CPC Report vide DOP&PW OM dated 12-5-2017 cited above.

2. The Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC) in Para 10.1.67 & 10.1.68 of its Report had for the first time conceded the long pending demand of the Central Government Pensioners for Parity of Pension between the Pre and Post CPC Pensioners and had recommended the following pension formulation for civil employees including CAPF personnel who had 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 be given option of choosing whichever formulation is beneficial to them.

3. Option 1, cited above, was very much feasible to implement as recommended by 7th CPC for revision of Pension of old Pension since according to the survey conducted by the DOP&PW, it was accepted that the Service Records of over 80% of old Pensioners were available, while those of the others could be re-built as per procedure prescribed in the Rules and as was done after 5th & 6th CPC and as per orders of the Courts in numerous cases.

4. Regrettably, the Committee formed by the Government, to consider the feasibility of implementation of Option 1 recommended by the Seventh CPC, while finding it non-feasible, did not care for the interest of the more than 80% of the Pensioners merely to save the Administration from the botheration of Re-building the Service Records of the rest less than 20% Pensioners. This was a great injustice since the 80% of the Pensioners who’s Records are available, shall suffer a loss of Pension just because of missing records of the rest 20%.

5. Instead, the Government accepted the following formula vide OM Dated 12-5-2017, as recommended by the Committee on Feasibility of Option 1:

“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 01.01.2016 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 Permutation.”

6. The above said formula will very seriously and adversely affect the Revised pension of a large majority of the Pre-2016 Pensioners on account of following reasons:

a) “Parity of Pension” between Pre and Post-2016 Pensioners – recommended by the Seventh CPC – would be denied to the Pre-2016 Pensioners.

b) In the process of notional pay fixation in successive Pay Commissions, there is a lot of dilution particularly for pensioners who retired in 4th CPC period resulting in big financial loss.

c) Irrespective of the date of retirement, Option 1 would have given the same pension to pre-2016 pensioners depending upon the number of increments earned in the last Level. By denying option 1 there will be sub-groups even within the homogenous group of pre-2016 pensioners.

d) None of the above losses would occur to the Pre-2016 Pensioners if the Option 1 recommended by the 7th CPC is implemented and if the new formula is allowed as a 3rd Option in addition to Option 1 & 2 Recommended by the 7th CPC in the interest of natural justice to all Pre-2016 Pensioners.

2. It is, therefore, requested that the Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners be fixed at the highest of the 3 Options – including first two Options as recommended by 7th CPC and 3rd Option as accepted by the Government and Notified vide DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017.

Hoping for a favourable consideration & thanking you in anticipation. With kind regards,

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Harchandan Singh)

According to these orders, revised pension and family pension of pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners as revised w.e.f. 01-01-2006 in no case would be less than 50% & 30% respectively of the sum of minimum of pay in pay band and the grade pay corresponding to the pre- revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired, as arrived at with reference to the fitment tables annexed to the Min of Fin, Deptt of Expenditure OM No. 1/1/2008 – IC dated 30-08-2008.

(2) For this purpose, a revised concordance table of the pre – 1996, pre-2006 and post 2006 pay scales/pay bands indicating the pension/family pension (at ordinary rates) payable under the above provisions was enclosed with ibid Govt. OM dt. 28.01.2013 to facilitate payment of revised pension/family pension.

(3) However, it was not possible to give the benefits of revised pension under Govt. O.M. dated 28.01.2013 in absence of VIth CPC pay scale applicable to NCC Whole Time(Male) Officers. Now it has been confirmed that the pay scales as notified for NCC Whole Time Lady Officers for the rank of lieutenant, Captain, Major & Lt.

(5) All other conditions as given in OM No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 1.9.2008, as amended from time to time shall remain unchanged.

(6) All pension disbursing authorities are therefore, requested to revise the pension/family pension in affected cases in terms of ibid circular. Payment made w.e.f. 01.01.2006 will be adjusted against the arrears now being paid and these cases may be reflected in the monthly account sent to this office as ‘change item’.

New Delhi, the 23rd May, 2017

Office Memorandum

Subject: Procedural actions for revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 retirees of Central Government in pursuance of the OM of Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare dated 12.5.2017 – Regarding.

The Ministries/Departments of the Central Government are aware of the orders issued by Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare (DoP&PW) contained in their OM No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12.5.2017 regarding revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 retirees. In terms of para 4 thereof, the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners/family pensioners, including CAPF’s who retired/died prior to 1.1.2016 may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale/pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died. The said OM further provides that this will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the formula for revision of pay. 50% of the notional pay as on 1.1.2016 shall be the revised pension and 30% of this notional pay shall be the revised family pension w.e.f. 1.1.2016.

2. The Ministries/Departments are aware that actual implementation of the aforesaid order contained in the OM dated 12.5.2017 of the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare involves a procedure for revision of pension of such pensioners, which covers a number of agencies like the Heads of Departments/Heads of Offices, under whose administrative control a particular pensioner had worked before retirement/death, the concerned PAOs, pension accounting organizations like CPAO in case of civil pensioners and similar pension accounting organizations pertaining to pensioners in Ministries of Railways, Defence and Department of Posts, etc. Therefore, a coordinated action amongst these agencies is required to ensure that revision of pension in such cases is processed expeditiously.

3. Accordingly, while the substantive matter pertaining to revision of pension of pre-1.1.2016 Central Government retirees concerns Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare as already provided in their aforesaid OM dated 12.5.2017 and any further substantive order thereon issued by them, there are certain procedural actions which need to be taken by the concerned administrative agencies in each Ministry/Department as well as the pension accounting organisations like the Central Pension Accounting Office under the Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure; Controller General of Defence Accounts under the Ministry of Defence and similar pension accounting organisations under the Ministry of Railways and Department of Posts etc so that appropriate implementation of the orders of Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare as per their OM dated 12.5.2017 is carried out expeditiously.

4. In order, therefore, to put the procedural issues in this regard in perspective and to provide for coordinated action amongst the concerned agencies, the following procedural points of action are to be taken by the concerned agencies as brought out below:

(A) Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance

(i) The fitment tables for fixation of notional pay will be worked out by the Department of Expenditure and provided to Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare for appropriate guidelines for the purpose of issue of any further substantive order in the matter.

(B) Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare

(i) The appropriate guidelines/ instructions for revision of pension based on fitment tables for notional pay will be issued for use by the pension revising administrative authorities, PAOs and pension accounting organisations in the Central Government.

(C) Pension Accounting Authorities

(i) The Central Pension Accounting Office in case of civil pensioners and similar pension accounting offices in the Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Railways, Department of Posts etc., shall pass on the available and relevant data of live pensioners to the concerned PAOs by 31.05.2017, if such data is already available with them. This action will be completed within two weeks. In cases where the data is not available, the same will be obtained by the pension accounting offices from the disbursing banks and shall be passed on to the concerned PAOs. This action will be taken up simultaneously and completed within four weeks.

(ii) The pension accounting offices, while passing on the data to the concerned PAOs, may also devise a suitable mechanism for electronic revision, as far as possible, to enable PAOs to process the cases of pension revision expeditiously.

(iii) The central pension accounting offices like the CPAO, at the time of passing on the data to the concerned PAOs, shall send a few illustrative examples on pension revision in such cases to the pension disbursing Banks to enable them to consider suitable changes in the software, if necessary, for the purpose.

(D) Pay & Account Office (PAO)/Head of the Department.

(i) The concerned PAOs, on receiving data from the pension accounting organizations, shall immediately, and not later than 3 days from the receipt of data, pass on the data to the concerned administration/establishment Branches/Heads of the Office (HOO)s under various Heads of Department (HODs) of the Ministries/Departments. The HOOs will also check their records to ascertain the actual numbers of retirees.

(ii) The concerned administration/establishment branches/Heads of Offices (HOO) under various Heads of Departments (HODs) of the Ministries/Departments shall take action to revise the pension in case of retirees who had worked under their administrative control, based on the orders issued by the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare dated 12.5.2017 and any further order containing the fitment table providing for notional pay, after due verification of the relevant records.

(iii) In cases where records are readily available with the HoD/DDO, the action to process revision of pension shall be initiated forthwith and not later than 30 days from the date of receipt of the list of pensioners by the PAOs from the CPAO. In such cases, revised pension cases will be sent to the PAOs for further necessary action by the concerned administrative Branches/HOOs, which normally process the pension cases in case of employees under their administrative domain on their retirement/death.

(iv) In cases where records are not readily available, the concerned HOOs/HODs will ensure appropriate action for verification of such cases and ensure expeditious revision of pension as per the prescribed procedure and passing on the same to PAOs for further necessary action.

(v) On receipt of revised pension cases from the administrative/establishment branches, the PAOs shall take further appropriate action expeditiously and pass on the duly verified pension revision authorities to the pension accounting offices like the CPAO, which will in turn take further action to issue necessary instructions/authority to the disbursing Banks without delay.

(vi) Once the revised pension authority is received by the Banks, they will ensure timely payment of revised pension and arrears, if any, to the accounts of pensioners.

5. In order to ensure effective monitoring of the progress of pension revision based on the procedure outlined above, a monitoring mechanism will also be followed as brought out below:

(i) DOP&PW will periodically monitor the Ministry-wise progress of pension revision. For this purpose, Ministry-wise details would be made available by the respective pension accounting organisations, viz, CPAO, CGDA, etc, to the Department of P&PW.

(ii) The progress of pension revision at the HOD/HOO level will be monitored by the concerned JS(Admn) of the Ministry/Department on a weekly basis. This will be included as one agenda in the Senior Officers Meetings (5OM) in each Ministry/Department.

(iii) CPAO and similar pension accounting organisations shall place online a dashboard of the progress of revision of pension cases with PAOs, CCAs, nodal authorities of Ministries/Departments and Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare.

(iv) In order to ensure timely action on the part of Chief Controller of Accounts/Controller of Accounts/PAOs and Pension Accounting Organisations, a weekly progress meeting shall be held at the level of Chief Controller of Pension and this shall be monitored on monthly basis by Controller General of Accounts, CGDA and similar levels in the Ministry of Railways, Department of Posts, etc.

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.

Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

DOP&PW is likely to issue Fitment Tables & Ready Reckoners soon for Revised Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners as per OM Dated 12-5-2017 – as requested by RSCWS & BPS – to avoid delay in implementation of orders due to delay in issuing the Revised PPOs by the PSAs – i.e. the Offices from which the Pensioner Retired.

Copy of Memorandum to Secretary Pension for issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners as per DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017

Secretary, GOI,
Department of Pension, GOI,
Patel Bhawan, New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Subject: Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Regarding: Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners. Reference: DOP&PW OM NO.38/37/2016-P&. PW(A) Dated 12-5-2017

Kind attention is invited towards the DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017 regarding Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission – Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners.

Incidentally, Fitment Tables and the Ready Reckoners have not been issued with the said orders as was done after every Pay Commission – both in respect of the Pay and Pension.

This will make the Revision of Pension very difficult, and time consuming as Notional Pay has to be fixed from one Pay Commission to the next since the Retirement of the employee for Revising their Pension as per Notional Pay in the Pay Matrix of 7th CPC.

This will substantially delay the issue of Revised PPOs and implementation of the said orders this time, causing hardship to the old Pensioners.

It is, therefore, earnestly requested that

i) Scale-wise Fitment Tables and Ready Reckoners may please be issued early for the Pensioners who had retired in the regimes of various Pay Commissions (especially those who retired from Pay Scales of Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Pay Commissions.

ii) A dedicated Software may please be posted on the Pensioners Portal for the Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners and for expeditious issue of the Revised PPOs and for placing them on the Internet.

Yours truly,
(Harchandan Singh),
Secretary General, RSCWS.

Copy for information and kind consideration:

i) Mrs. Vandana Sharma, Additional Secretary, Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare, 3rd Floor Lok Nayak Bhawan, Khan Market, New Delhi – 110003.

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

How, the battle is lost
One rank one pension denied

OPTION 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of Pension/Family pension of pre-2016 Denied inspite of availability of service records of over 80% of old pensioners.

The alternative given vide OM dated 12.5.2017 though to some extent it will benefit a good % of old pensioners, it cannot make up the lifelong loss old pensioners will suffer due to denial of option 1. Ever since Honourable Supreme Court land mark judgement dated_____ in UOI vs D S Nakra. In the hide and seek game with UOI for 100% parity between present & past Civil Pensioners Bharat Pensioners Samaj had this time secured Penalty Corner but the Babu in DOP & PW foiled the final hit.

Why only DOP& PW, our own people must share the blame! The war veterans whom we had been supporting for years in their struggle for one rank one pension were the first to oppose ‘Bharat Pensioners Samaj‘ demand for 100% parity/one rank one pension through electronic media as well as through representations (backed by their serving HODs) to GOI pleading that they only are entitled to this benefit and not the Civil pensioners

The final blow was delivered in the 7th meeting of feasibility committee on 17.10.2016 when as mentioned in Para 4 of the official minutes vide No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) GOI Ministry of Personnel, P.G. and Pensions -DOP &PW dated the 31st October, 2016 (placed here under). JCM (staff side) agreed with govt’s alternative proposal.

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.

Subject:  Providing breakup of pension and arrear payments & recoveries to pensioners.

Attention is invited to para 4.6.7 of the Accounting and Operating Procedure for Central Pension Processing Centre of Authorised Banks for Pension Disbursement to Central Government (Civil) Pensioners (February, 2012) whereby it has been provided that “The CPPC software will display on the computer screen, options and view of the details of calculation of pension and its breakup of the pension paid to the pensioner/ family pensioner. The Home Branch will act as intermediary with the CPPC and, besides providing accounts statement, provide to the pensioners the payment of TDS details, pension slip, the Due and Drawn Statement in respect of each arrear and the Annual Income Statement”.

2. Taking into consideration the grievances reported by Pensioners’ Associations and Pensioners, CPAO had issued instructions to Heads of CPPCs and Government Business Divisions vide OM No. CPAO/Tech/Banks Performance/2015-16/60 dated-14.06.2016 for strict compliance of above guidelines for providing detailed breakup of pension payments.

3. It has again been reported by Pensioners Associations and Pensioners that “arrears of arrear of Revision of Pension, Fixed Medical Allowance, Additional Pension, Life Time Arrear etc. are clubbed with monthly payment of pension for which it becomes difficult for pensioner/family pensioner to understand if pension and arrears are disbursed correctly. Even recovery of overpayment or wrong payment is not shown separately”.

4. Therefore, banks are instructed to follow the provisions of CPPC guidelines and instructions issued vide OM dated-14.06.2016 and provide full breakup of pension payment dearly to the pensioners. A compliance report in this regard may be sent to CPAO latest by 31.01.2017 positively.

Office Memorandum

Subject: Pilot run of e-Revision Utility of CPAO for 7th Central Pay Commission Revision of Pension.

Revision of about 9.5 lakhs Pre-2016 pension cases & 16000 post-2016 cases have become due as per recommendations of 7th CPC. As per instructions of DP&PW dated 4/08/2016, pension cases of Pre-2015 pensioners have been revised by the banks by applying the multiplication factor of 2.57.However, pension of post-2016 pensioners needs to be revised by concerned PADs. At present, these cases are being revised through COMPACT and physical authorities are sent to CPAO for authorization of pension. As COMPACT does not provide the facility of sending online Revision Authorities under the digital signatures of concerned PAOs to CPAO, CPAO has to wait for physical Revision Authorities for the validation of PAOs’ signature and special seal. Due to this, the process of pension revision becomes time consuming which ultimately slows down the whole process of revision. To overcome this problem, CPAO has developed online e-revision utility to take care of 7th CPC Pension Revision with the facility of sending digitally signed Revision Authority under the digital signatures of PAOs to CPAO.

2.11 has been decided to start the pilot run of new utility in 8 PAOs i.e. PAD, CRPF, New Delhi, PAO, CISF, New Delhi and PAO, BSF New Delhi of MHA; PAO, NDIZ and PAO , Food Zone of UD; PAO, CWC in Water Recourses; Pr. AO/PAO , New Delhi in External Affairs and ZAD, CBDT New Delhi in CBDT. These PAOs are first required to register their digital signatures in PFIVIS (if not already registered) in order to process and send the revised authority to CPAO. e- Revision utility may be accessed on CPAO’s website http://cpao.nic.in/wrap.php?p=html/E-Revision.html Step by Step process flow for processing of revision cases in the new utility may be downloaded from CPAOs website at http://cpao.nic.in/wrap.php?p=html/E-Revision.html

3. in view of the above, you are requested to instruct your PAOs selected for pilot run to use new utility of CPAO for revision of Post- 2016 pension cases w.e.f. 1st January, 2017 and extend full support to make the trial/pilot successful. In case of any difficulty in use of this utility Sh. Davinder Kumar, Technical Director, [SIC, CPAO may be contacted on Telephone No. 01126715338 or through email – kurnar.davinder@nic.in.
