A clarification was issued vide DoP&PW OM of even number dated 3.10.2008 that the pension calculated at 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band plus grade pay 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.
2. Several petitions were filed in Central Administrative Tribunal, Principal Bench, New Delhi inter alia claiming that the revised pension of the pre-2006 pensioners should not be less than 50% of the minimum of the pay band + grade pay, corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which pensioner had retired, as arrived at with reference to the fitment tables annexed to Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure OM No.l/1/2008-IC dated 30th August, 2008.

The above order was challenged by the Government by filing Writ Petition No.1535/2012 in respect of OA No. 655/2010 and WP No.2348-50/12 in respect of the three other connected OAs in the High Court of Delhi. The Hon’ble High Court in Its common Order dated 29.4.2013 noted that the DoP&PW had, in the meanwhile, issued an OM No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 28.1.2013 which provided for stepping up of pension of pre2006 pensioners w.e.f. 24.9.2012 to 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band and grade pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired. Hon’ble High Court observed that the only issue which survived was, with reference to Paragraph 9 of OM dated 28.1.2013 which makes it applicable w.e.f. 24.9.2012 instead of 1.1.2006. Hon’ble High Court of Delhi dismissed the Writ Petition No.1535/20 12 along with three other Writ Petitions vide its order dated 29.4.2013. Special Leave Petitions (No.23055/2013 and No.36148-50/2013) filed against the said order dated 29/412013 of the Hon’ble Delhi High Court have also been dismissed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court.
4. Accordingly, in compliance with the above judicial pronouncements, it has been decided that the pension/family pension of all pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners may be revised in accordance with this Department’s OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 28.1.2013 with effect from 1.1.2006 instead of24.9.2012. Further, this benefit has already been granted to the Applicants in OA No. 655/2010 vide OM of even No. dated 26/08/2014 read with OM dated 19/09/2015 following dismissal of SLP (C) No.23055/2013 by the Hon’ble Supreme Court.
5. In case the consolidated pension/family pension calculated as per para 4.1 of O.M. No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 1.9.2008 is higher than the pension/family pension calculated in the manner indicated in the O.M. dated 28.1.2013, the same (higher consolidated pension/family pension) will continue to be treated as basic pension/family pension.
6. 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.
7. Ministry of Agriculture, etc. are requested to bring the contents of these orders to the notice of Controller of Accounts/Pay and Accounts Officers and Attached and subordinate Offices under them on a top priority basis. All pension disbursing offices are also advised to prominently display these orders on their notice boards for the benefit of pensioners.
8. This issues with the approval of Ministry of Finance ID Note No. 1(9)/EV/2011Vol.1I dated 24.7.2015.

  • The result obtained is due to relentless effort by our exservicemen league specially under maj gen Satbir singh.Many thanks to him and his team of exservicemen who lent their hands.
    It shows you have to make yourself heard by various means and methods which thus far men in uniform were a disciplined lot and they dare NOT do so to raise their voice for their rightful rights.However I thank and congratulate all for the achievements!

    God is great. Revision of pension for pre-2006 retirees is really encouraging in my old age . But my own doubt is whether the payment of arrears will be done in my life time. Beacause the the court judgement is in july 2015. It is more than 3 months, the benefit has not reached the pensioner. The work is being done at very low pace. concerned govt department should think of the mental agony experienced by the old pensioners. Let them feel pity for the oldest pensioners group and render their service to them at the earliest.

      The correct revision of pension of pre-2006 pension was never priority of DOPPW since long.This is confirmed by the number of occasions it ordered revision of pension of pre-2006 pensioners. (1/9/08.,3/10/08,14/10/08,28/01/13.30/07/16 and 6/04/16)
      All above orders were issued with intension to eat pensioners interest on delayed pension areas.
      On the part of ppo's issuing authorities they are least interested in complying with orders of DOPPW orders.Consequently a large number of cases of pre-2006 pensioners have been revised on the unrevised pensions.
      There for the message apprehensions of Venkata Krishnan seems true.

    Instrucions can be passed over night if there is willing ness to address the greavances. COMPUTERISATION serves the purpose at the tinckle of command to a software to calculate it with in seconds. Various heads of of software companies world over are Indians.

  • GP Karan : Still , anomalies are existing . As per the 6 CPC report, 20 years is the qualifying service for full pension. In other words, such of those pre-2006 pensioners who have put in service between 20 and 33 years are entitled to full pension. This aspect seems to be over looked by the Government vide Para 5 of OM.F No.38/37/08-P&PW(A)dt.28-01-2013 which still speaks of pro-rata pension. This is an anomaly, considering the fact that the qualifying service of 33 years for full pension is no longer relevant, and further that one is now entitled to full pension after reaching the critical mass of 20 years. The anomaly needs redress. This point of reference should be made applicable to all pre-2006 retirees.
    Pro-rate pension granted retiree's 50% pension when they retired has also not been accounted for in the arrears calculated sheet published by the Government. These anomalies need rectification and accordingly the arrears calculated and paid. It may also please be elucidated when the arrears be paid.

  • Hope that the CPAO will issue instructions to all pension drawing Authorities to draw the arrears to the eligible pre-2006 retirees,as was done by the PDCA vide circular dated 14-8-2015 without any more delay

  • When that arrears may get?

  • PLEASE take up a case for exservicemen also .They have still not issued ant letter.PCDA AND MOD MAY PLEASE BE ASKED TO EXPEDITE.

  • Anonymous 7 years ago

    they might be busy in finalising or linking it with OROP issue

  • Please take up the matter with MOD and PCDA why they are not issued any instructions for payment of arrears wef 1-1-2006 to 23-09-2012 to the effected personnel.

    However, ambiguity persists. As per the 6 CPC report, 20 years is the qualifying service for full pension. In other words, such of those pre-2006 pensioners who have put in service between 20 and 33 years are entitled to full pension. This aspect has been disregarded by the Government vide Para 5 of OM.F No.38/37/08-P&PW(A)dt.28-01-2013 which still speaks of pro-rata pension.

    I have retired pre-2006 (i.e 1984) thanks to Govt.(BJP) and every person connected with this programe.

  • chandrasekaran 7 years ago

    with ref to the pensioners welfare department letter dated 30/7/2015 the following points need clarification
    1 does the letter cover this category of defence pensioners also.
    2 have the pdas been given executive instructions in this regard?
    3 will the prorata calculation for pensioners with more than 20 yrs of service but less than 33 yrs to continue? the apex court have also struck down the system and has directed the government to pay full pension to all those who have completed more than 20 yrs of recon able service
    The PDAs have categorically stated that with regard to defense pensioners unless the receive a specific circular in this regard from PCDA-pensions they will take no action.There seems to be no action by either the M O D or the PCDA pension to address the issue even after 10 days of issuance of directive from Govt of India. will some one move.

  • lato ke bhut baato se nahi mante!!! Hon SC gave strict order dismissing all SLPs of UOI. and with no alternate, OM is issued. Dudh ka dudh , pani ka pani akhir ho gaya!!!

  • M S Kaushal Kaushal 7 years ago

    Thanks each person connected with this achievement.

  • Dr.jain raised a pertinent point. Various CAT benches have given their judgements to grant full pension as per the figment table to all those pre-2006 pensioners with 20 yrs.Q.S. The present OM dated 30th. Is silent about this important class of pensioners again making an artificial class within the class. Even the verdict of the apex court is seems to be neglected driving all of us to courts. Gafoor khan, Kollam

    • Srinivasan R 6 years ago

      All Veterans are invited to look into the GOI MOD Order dt.30.9.2016 on de-linking of 33 years Qualifying Service for Pension and the pension is to be paid even if the Q.S. is less than 33 yrs without any pro-rata reduction in pension w.e.f.1.1.2006 (R)1.1.2006.

      Under OROP Orders which is effective only from 1.7.2014 is also to be revised as per the above orders of GOI MOD dt.30.9.2016 without any pro-rata reduction in pension in respect of those retired/discharged/Invalided out personnel before arriving at the basic pension as per 7th CPC orders. I request that the DOPPW/Secy.ESW will look into this aspect and issue suitable orders. I also request all the Pensionrs' Associations to co-ordinate with GOI MOD in this regard.

  • After so many appeals ,Special Leave Petitions,Review Petition and CURATIVE Petition,finally pre-2006
    retirees succeeded .after SEVEN years.This should have been rectified in 2008 itself.But rectified in 2015.Thanks to the Department of pension &pensioners welfare.All the pre-2006retirees should give our sincere thanks to Shri.S.C.Maheshwari,Secretary-General ,Bharat Pensioners Samaj,NewDelhi for his continued efforts in getting this arrear.All must contribute their donations liberally and join as Members in the BPS. By Thandavakrishnan, a pre-2006 retiree.

  • The OM dated 30-07-2015 is still NOT proper. The issue of Qualifying Service is not clarified in the said OM. There is a non-application of mind. The Hon'able Courts have clearly held that those pre-2006 pensioners having QS more than 20 years of service and less than 33 years of service are also entitled full pension. Formula of proportionate reduction is NOT applicable simply because the same has already applied while fixing the pension of all pre-2006 retirees as per 5th CPC formula. The principle of QS can not be applied again and again while fixing the pension. OM dated 3.10.2008 and 14.10.2008 has already been quashed and set aside by the Hn'able Court in OA 655/2010 and in other 3OAs, as pronounced in their Judgment dated 01-11-2011. It is submitted please carefully read the judgment and order dated 01-11-2011 in OA 655/2010 etc. and issue the appropriate orders. Hope the concerned Officials of DOP&PW will follow the Judicial pronouncement. Regards. Dr. D. K. Jain

  • This is the victory against the injustice done to pensioners/family pensioners of pre 2006.Any how God is Great,The Hon'ble Supreme court on 17.3.2015 by his order dismissing all SLP's filed by UOI given great relief to poor/old aged pensioners/family pensioners living in different parts of INdia and they are not able to get this order by their own.Thanks to S-29 pensioners,Bharat pension Samaj,RSCWS and other pensioner associations for getting positive orders from Apex Court.In this case we have seen so many up and downs in these years.After dismissal of SLP, Curative and Revision ,UOI filed three more SLP's to avoid arrears from 1.1.2006 and even after legal advice implemented in REM only applicants of S-29 petition not in Personna i.e. applicable to all pre 2006 pensioners but God is Great,the Hon'ble Apex Court confirmed the CAT order upheld by Hon'ble HC-Delhi and given some enlightment to our Bureaucrates appointed in DOPT for their whimsicul/shameful acts.
