Revision of Pension of Pre-2006 Pensioners  

In pursuance of Government’s decision on the recommendations of Sixth CPC, orders were issued for revision of pension/family pensioners vide DOP&PW O.M. No.38/37/ 08-P&PW(A) dated 1-9-2008, as amended from time to time.

It has been decided that the pension of pre-2006 pensioners as revised w.e.f.              1-1-2006 in terms of para 4.1 or para 4.2 of the aforesaid O.M. dated 1-9-2008, as amended from time to time, would be further stepped-up to 50% of the sum of minimum of pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired, as arrived at with reference to the Fitment Tables annexed to the MOF DOE O.M. No.1/1/2008-IC dated 30-8-2008.  In the case of HAG and above scales, this will be 50% of the minimum of the pay in the revised pay scale arrived at, with reference to the Fitment Tables.

The normal family pension in respect of pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners as revised w.e.f. 1-1-2006 in terms of para 4.1 or para 4.2 of the O.M. dated 1-9-2008 would also be further stepped-up to 30% of the sum of minimum of pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale in which the Govt. servant had retired, as arrived at with reference to the Fitment Tables.  In the case of HAG and above scales, this will be 30% of the minimum of the pay in the revised pay scale arrived at with reference to the Fitment Tables.

A revised Concordance Table of the pre-1996, pre-2006 and post-2006 pay scales/ Pay Bands indicating the pension/family pension (at ordinary rates) payable under the above provisions is provided to facilitate payment of revised pension/family pension.

The pension so arrived at in accordance with para 2 above and indicated in Col. 9 of Annexure will be reduced pro-rata, where the pensioner had less than the maximum required service for full pension as per Rule 49 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972 as applicable before 1-1-2006;  and in no case it will be less than Rs.3,500/ – p.m.

The family pension at enhanced rates (under sub Rule (3)(a) of Rule 54 of the CCS (Pension) Rules, 1972) of pre-2006 pensioners/family pensioners revised w.e.f. 1-1-2006 in terms of para 4.1 or DOP&PW O.M. No.1/3/2011-P&PW(E) dated 25-5-2012 would be further stepped-up in the following manner:

(i)      In the case of Govt. servants who died while in service before 1-1-2006 and in respect of whom enhanced family pension is applicable from the date of approval by the Govt., i.e., 24-9-2012, the enhanced family pension will be stepped-up to 50% of the sum of minimum of pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale in which the Govt. servant had died, as arrived at with reference to the Fitment Tables. In the case of HAG and above scales, this will be 50% of the minimum of the pay in the revised pay scale arrived at with reference to the Fitment Tables.

(ii)     In the case of a pensioner who retired before 1-1-2006 and in respect of whom enhanced family pension is applicable from the date of approval by the Govt., i.e., 24-9-2012; the enhanced family pension will be stepped-up to the amount of pension as revised in terms of para 2 read with para 5 above.  In the case the pensioner died before from the date of approval by the Govt., i.e.,  24-9-2012, the pension will be revised notionally in terms of para 2 read with para 5 above. The amount of revised enhanced family pension will, however, not be less than the amount of family pension at ordinary rates as revised in terms of para 3 above.

In case the pension consolidated pension/family pension/enhanced family pension calculated as per para 4.1 of O.M. No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 1-9-2008 is higher than the pension/family pension calculated in the manner indicated above, the same (higher consolidated pension/family pension) will continue to be treated as basic pension/family pension.

All other conditions as given in O.M. dated 1-9-2008, as amended from time to time, shall remain unchanged.

These orders will take effect from the date of approval by the Govt., i.e., 24-9-2012. There will be no change in the amount of revised pension/family pension paid during the period 1-1-2006 and 23-9-2012, and, therefore, no arrears will be payable on account of these orders for that period.
