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.

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.

    When one should expect the 7th Pay commission implementation for employees & Pensioners of Autonomous bodies like CSIR.

  • Anonymous 7 years ago

    The employees of autonomous bodies are scattered and not united and the government know that a huge strike by these employees are not possible and hence no need of speed to resolve the issue. So stop this blog writing… please login to PMO's compliant site by each and every employees and our prime minister may hear the bulk request……
