60 years age for superannuation is better for Central Govt employees No further extension is required. How new generation will come to the govt sectors. We will give a chance to them. It is enough.
Grant of pre-revised NPA (as per 6CPC) to the employees (doctors) after implementation of 7CPC who retire from 01.01.2016 to 30.06.2017 have been deprived in respect of their retirement (Pension) benefit as only 50% of pre revised NPA (as per 6CPC) has been computed during pension calculation. This is due to implementation of NPA order effective from 01.07.2017. As per revised pay Rules, employees (doctors) who retire prior to 1.1.2016 and after 1.7.2017 have been given the due revised benefit of NPA as part of emolument while calculating their retirement benefits. Only the employees who retire from 1.1.2016 to 30.6.2017 have been deprived of the admissible revised NPA retirement benefits and are getting less pension than those employees who retire prior to 1.1.2016. This is an anomaly and needs to be rectified by the Government. Moreover, in earlier pay commissions, NPA had been granted from the date of implementation of central pay commissions for all purposes including calculation of retirement benefits. To rectify this anomaly, the NPA order should be effective from the date of implementation of 7CPC i.e. w.e.f. 01.01.2016 because NPA has been considered as basic salary (not an allowance) for the purpose of computation of Dearness Allowance and calculation of retirement benefits. Why only the retirees entitled for NPA should suffer from this retirement benefits.
Likewise the employees (doctors) who retire from 1.7.2016 to 30.6.2017 too are equally affected.
In this regard, I strongly comment to rectify the arrived anomaly so that NPA being a part of emoluments could be extended to the veterinary posts entitled for NPA w.e.f. 01.01.2016 as in vogue including those who retired from 1.1.2016 to 30.6.2017.
