    To Hav M Kumar it is simple arithmetic; multiply your orop pension by 2.57 and you get your VII cpc pension, in you case it is 19527/- plus 4% d.r.

    Pension ministry orders on pension is not very clear, option point is missing, on the otherhand it says all pension cases should be revised by the heads of the departments, i.e.heads of offices from where the pensioner retired. Who will do this?

  • venkatesan 7 years ago

    The no of increments drawn in the pay scale at the time of retirement should be taken into account and fitment at the level in the 7cpc matrix at the stage should be fixed. Then only it can be an alternative to the Option-1. The present dispensation is useless. Pensioners may get just a 6 to 7 percent more than what we are drawing now.Denial of Option-1 is going to seal the coffin of OROP for ever to the CG employees. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY 5TH CPC FORMULA IS DISPENSED WITH? For parity that is a better formula w.o. any anomaly. Was it not done during 5th CPC?
