Revision of Pension of pre  7tn CPC retirees

The     Commission recommends the following pension formulation for civil employees including CAPF             personnel who have retired before 01.01.2016

(i)   All the Civilian personnel including CAPF who retired prior to 01.01.2016 (expected date of implementation of the Seventh CPC recommendations ) shall first be fixed in the Pay Matrix being recommended by  this  Commission , on the basis of the Pay Band and Grade Pay at which they retired, at the minimum of the corresponding level in the  matrix.  This  amount shall be raised, to arrive at the notional pay of the retiree, by adding the number of increments he I she had earned in that level while in service, at the rate of three percent. Fifty percent of the total amount so arrived at shall be the revised pension.


(ii)   The second calculation to be carried out is as follows. The pension, as had been  fixed  at  the time of implementation of the VI CPC recommendations , shall be multiplied by 2.57 to arrive at an alternate value for the revised pension.


(iii)      Pensioners may be given the option of choosing whichever formulat ion is beneficial to them .
It is recognized that the fixation of pension as per
formulation in (i) above may take a little time since the records of each pensioner will have to be checked to ascertain the number of increments earned in the retiring  level. It is therefore recommended that in the first instance the revised pension may be calculated as at (ii) above and the same may, be paid as an interim measure. In the event calculation as per (i) above yields a higher amount the  difference  may  be  paid subsequently .(Para 10.1.67 and Para 10.1.68 of the Report)
Both           the           options
recommended   by   the   ih
Central  Pay Commission  as
regards  pension  revision  be accepted subject to feasibility of          the          implementation . Revision of pension using the second    option       based       on fitment     factor     of    2.57     be implemented         immediately. The first option may be made applicable                 if              its implementation      is      found feasible after examination by the     Committee    comprising Secretary         (Pension)         as Chairman         and        Member (Staff).         Railway         Board, Member  (Staff), Department of Posts, Additiona l Secretary
