Hon’ble Minister of Finance,
Government of India,

Madam,

Sub: – Grant of Additional Pension of 5%, 10%, 15% & 20% at the age of 65,70,75 & 80 yrs respectively.

Ref: – GOI, DoP&PW F.No. 17/4/2021-P&PW(Coord.)-E.7648 Dated 04.04.2022

1. Parliamentary Standing Committee on Pensioner’s grievances in its 110th report vide recommendation No. 3.28 had recommended that “The committee is of the view that Government should sympathetically consider the demand of Pensioner’s Associations for 5% additional quantum of pension on attaining the age of 65 years, 10% on 70 years, 15% on 75 years and 20% on 80 years to the pensioners.” as per the table below: –

On Attaining the Age of Additional Quantum of Pension Recommended by the Parliamentary Committee
65 years 5% of Basic Pension
70 years 10% of Basic Pension
75 years 15% of Basic Pension

2. Ministry of DoP&PW vide their above referred letter had stressed for early implementation of the above recommendations of the Parliamentary Committee.

3. The Government seems to be in agreement with the above said recommendations for Additional Pension from the age of 65, 70 & 75 years but has not implemented the same due to its financial implications, as mentioned in 120th Report of Parliamentary Committee on Pensioners grievances.

4. The Pensioners continue to suffer due to ever rising cost of sustenance in old age due to failing health, ever rising cost of Medicines besides those of other social and family responsibilities. Financial implications of the proposal for additional Pension may please be reviewed sympathetically keeping in view the hardship of the Pensioners with every passing year of age. The Government of India may please consider the proposal sympathetically and provide for requisite funds for the same.

5. It is, therefore, requested that above said recommendations may please be implemented for grant of additional pension of 5% on attaining 65 years of age, 10% from 70 years of age and 15 % on attaining 75 years of age, in line with 20% of additional pension as already granted on attaining the age of 80 yrs.

Yours truly,

Harchandan Singh
Secy. General/RSCWS

  • Sadanand Sutar 10 months ago

    There is rule that after attaining age of 80 years pensioner will get double the pension. Is this 20% in addition to this ?

    DA DR not being implemented by SBI Mormugao Branch to me as and when declared by Central Government nor do we get any payment slip only once a year our salary get increased to one thousand once a year at the end of the year so I come to know DA has been enhanced only one time but how much not clear as no break up in the payment slip.They say the said dept Customs Harbour has to send them the statement only then they will give and Customs dept says they have nothing to do with pensioner payment inspite of being from the same dept so in the end where is the DA going .

    These news are good for government organizations only and not for private sector companies or MNCs. I am 61 now but even after paying my Income Taxes on time, when my time to get pension has come not even EPFO deptt. Commissioner is responding to my mails.
