7th Pay Commission New Table for Commutation of Pension
Commutation is one of the retirement benefits for Government employees to sell a particular percentage of basic pension on an optional basis.
Every Central government employee has an option to convert a particular portion of basic pension (maximum 40%) as a one-time lump sum amount instead of a monthly basis.
The value of the commutation of pension will be calculated based on the Commutation Table. The Commutation table is stated from the age of the next birthday of 20 with the factor of 9.188. The table shows the factor for 61 age of next birthday is 8.194. And the last column of 81 age of next birthday factor is 4.611.
As per the CCS (Commutation of Pension) Rules, 1981, the commutation factor is applicable to the age of next birthday on the date of retirement. And the formula for calculating the value of the pension is as follows…
40 percentage of basic pension x Commutation Factor x 12
[Effective from 1st march, 1971
Commuted Value = 0.4 (Maximum) x Pension x Commutation Factor x 12]

Calculation of Commutation Factor of Pension with Eligibility – Illustration
Every pensioner is eligible to commute a portion of his monthly pension for a lumpsum payment which is the commuted value of that portion of pension. An employee or pensioner against whom departmental or judicial proceedings are pending is not eligible to commute a portion of his pension till completion of such proceedings.
Not exceeding 40% of monthly pension. Any fraction in the amount offered for commutation will be ignored. example, if the monthly pension is Rs. 24,500 then the maximum amount admissible for commutation is: Rs. 9,800 (24500 x 40/100) only.
Commutation Amount is calculated with respect of the Commutation factor taken from Commutation Table as relevant to the age next birthday.

The formula for working out the lumpsum payable is as follows.
Amount of pension offered for Commutation x 12 x Commutation factor
Two illustrations are given below as per commutation of pension rules
Illustration 1: In case of an employee retired on July 2018 with the basic pension of Rs. 24,500
- Amount of pension offered for Commutation = Rs. 9,800
- Age next birthday = 61 years
- Commutation Factor = 8.194
- Lumpsum Payable = 9800 x 12 x 8.194 = Rs. 9,63,614 (rounded off)

- Amount of pension offered for Commutation = Rs. 510
- Age next birthday = 61 years
- Commutation Factor = 9.81
- Lumpsum Payable = 510 x 12 x 9.81 = Rs. 60,037 (rounded off)
The reduction in the amount of pension on commutation will become operative from the date of receipt of the commuted value by the pensioner, or at the end of three months after the issue of authority for payment, whichever is earlier. The restoration of the commuted portion of pension will be admissible on completion of 15 years, for which the pensioner should apply to the pension disbursing authority.
