50% D.R. Merger or Interim Relief for Central Government Pensioner: Bharat Pensioners Samaj's letter to FM

"consider granting 50% DR Merger or some other equivalent benefit/interim relief pending setting up of VII Central Pay Commission to provide the much needed immediate relief to central government pensioners in the country" - BPS
(All India Federation of Pensioners' Associations)
No. BPS/SG/FM/031/1
Dated: 06.08.2013

Shri P. Chidambaram,
Hon'ble Finance Minister,
Government of India,
New Delhi.
Sub: Relief to C.G. Pensioners.
The pension of central government pensioners' was revised last w.e.f. 1.1.2006 as per the recommendations of VI Central Pay commission.  Though central government employees and pensioners were granted 50% DA/DR merger benefit w.e.f. 1.4.2004 as per V CPC recommendation, this benefit was not granted after DA/DR crossed 50% w.e.f. 1.1.2011 on the ground that the VI CPC did not recommend this.  It may kindly be seen that the VI CPC had not recommended an alternative benefit to pensioner.  They had also overlooked the spirit behind V CPC recommendation in the above regard.

This organization had been demanding for long either granting of 50% DR merger or an alternative benefit to pensioners in order to protect them against rigours of ravaging inflation.  Pensioners have been facing grave financial hardship due to the galloping and unbridled inflation for the past several years.  It is becoming increasingly difficult for them to make their both ends meet with steady and continuous fall in the real values of pensions against ever increasing prices of essential commodities and general cost of living.  It may also be seen that while several state governments in the country have been revising salaries and pensions of their employees and pensioners once in every five years, it is more than seven years since VI CPC recommendations had come into effect and the government has unfortunately been apathetic to the sufferings of the pensioners.

Bharat Pensioners Samaj therefore, request your kindself to consider granting 50% DR Merger or some other equivalent benefit/interim relief pending setting up of VII Central Pay Commission to provide the much needed immediate relief to central government pensioners in the country.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S.C. Maheshwari
