Dear Comrades!

Sub: Brief of the meeting held under the Chairmanship of Secretary (Pension), Government of India on 06.10.2016, to discuss 7th CPC recommendation for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners

In the meeting, referred to above, the Official Side expressed doubt to have details of service particulars, i.e. date of promotion and subsequent increment etc., specially pre- 01.01.2006 retirees. As such, it may not be feasible to fix-up pension, taking into account of increment received in the post from which one has retired from service.
As per opinion of the Secretary (Pension), “if recommendation No.1 is accepted, Service Record of certain persons may not be located. This will lead to number oflitigations. However, we have produced certain pension dockets wherein all these things are available (where calculation of Qualifying Service was undertaken) and such option should be left with individual pensioner as per ones advantage. The Official Side lastly suggested that, parity in pension, as was granted after the recommendation of V CPC, w.e.f. 01.01.1996, may be adopted for determining the method(notionat) of all pre-01.01.2016 pensioners.
Next meeting in this regard will be held at 10:00 hrs. on 13th October, 2016. Further, the matter of National Pension System(NPS) will be referred to a separatecommittee. We have impressed upon the Secretary(Pension) that, four months time is running out. As such, decision on revision of pension of pre-01.01.2016 retirees and thematter of the NPS should be decided without any further loss of time. Meeting on Allowances, which was slated to be held on 13th October, 2016, has been postponed to 25th October, 2016.

Comradely yours,

    We are here just to wait and watch.

    Yes, unfortunately it seems so.

    What is the outcome of the discussions held on 13th October regarding the feasibility of implementing option 1? Perhaps the feasibility may be to dump the pensioners?

  • Anonymous 8 years ago

    It's a mystery what the committee of Secretaries who studied 7th CPC, recommended to the Govt before FM unilaterally ordered implementation of the 7 CPC w.o considering hike in minimum wage and MF. It has been 1year since CPC submitted report. Please elaborate 5th CPC formula before accepting Govt views and pension secretary. Let us see what comes out of 13th Oct meeting with the Pension secretary.

    I agree with the comments of Shri Satyanayana. We must get the Govt agreed to Option 1.

  • Dear Comrade Das Guptaji,

    In continuation of my posting on Oct,11 I may be permitted to state about the modified parity implemented under 5th CPC,referred to by Pension Secretary. Under that scheme the pension of past retirees was fixed at a higher level allowing the same fitment formula applied to the serving employees and the pension so fixed shall not be less than half of the minimum of pay in the corresponding new pay scale. This being the case no additional benefit other than fitment benefit accrues to past pensioners. It means only multiplication by 2.57(multiplication factor) is the benefit which has already been given. Hence,at any cost there is no meaningful alternative to Option I.Kindly impress upon the Pension Secretary to agree to Option I.
    Comradely yours,

    Dear Shiv Gopal Misraji,
    I hv posted several times what Mr Sathyanarayan has expressed. Pre 1996 retirees are almost drawing class D pension due to poor cadre restructuring. Many retired before they cd get 3rd promotion. OROP can only bring Parity.its now or never. Old pensioners are very few and pass away anytime. The BJP culture which respect sr.citizens shd extend parity. 5th CPC formula will cut down 2 or 3 increments compared to OROP. God shd instill the empathy in the minds of FM and dealing officials.
    Yours comradely,

  • Dear Comrade Das Gupta,

    Kindly impress upon the Pension Secretary that the cases of non-availability of service records may be very few and negligible compared to the records available. I retired from the Acctt General's office,Hyderabad in 1992 and can confidently assert that almost all records are available with DDOs and PAOs. If one has will to accomplish a task, a way out can be found. Further maximum benefit under Option-I would accrue to the persons retired under 3rd and 4th CPC regimes,because their pay scales at that time were very low and consequently they are getting less pensions even after some rise was accorded under subsequent CPCs. All of them are very old and above 80 years and their pensions do not adequately meet the rising expenses. Moreover their further life expectancy is also anybody's guess. Their number is also not much and expenditure to govt on this account will not be heavy. Considering these facts, kindly impress upon the Pension Secretary to concede this point.Thanking you.
    Comradely yours,


  • The pensioner who retired before 1/1/2016,their case may be considered seriously that for how many years they were on the same pay band and no.of increments they got prior to superannuation.The pensioner should not suffer for money loss at any cost.
