  • S Ramamurthy ExDeputy Gen.Manager,Ordnance Factories,
    My pension was fixed as per 6th CPC at Rs 23050.Subsequently my pension was revised to 24195 as per CAT ruling to bring parity of pension for pre 2006 pensioners.Accordingly my pension was fixed at Rs 62182 by multiplying with 2.57 per 7th CPC.option 2.
    But again my pension was brought down to 61550 following the notional fixation as per 7th CPC option 1.
    But Govt have accepted the principle of the fixation either of options which is advantageous to the pensioner.But all my efforts to get my grievance redressed by any agency failed.
    Can anybody advise me.
