The Central Government employees, who retired before 2006 have been deprived off the benefits of Sixth Pay Commission as recommended by the Central Pay Commission. A group of employees had approached the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on the issue.
(i) the existing pension/family pension
(ii) Dearness pension, where applicable
(iii) Dearness Relief @ 24% of basic pension/family pension plus dearness pension and
(iv) fitment weightage @40% of the existing pension/family pension. In Para 4.2 of this OM, it is stated that fixation will be subject to the provision that the revised pension, in no case, shall be lower than fifty per cent of the minimum of the pay in the pay band plus the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired. These orders also provided for immediate payment of arrears on revision of pension by the pension disbursing banks. Subsequently, on some doubts being raised in this regard, Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare issued an OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 3.10.2008 and 14.10.2008 inter alia clarifying that the pension calculated at fifty per cent of the minimum of pay in the pay band plus grade pay under Para 4.2 of OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) would be calculated at the minimum of the pay in the pay band (irrespective of the pre-revised scale of pay) plus the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale. The pension will be reduced pro rata, where the pensioner had less than the maximum required service for full pension as per rule 49 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 as applicable on 1.1.2006 and in no case it will be less than Rs.3,500/-p.m.
