Fixation of Pension as per 7th Pay Commission to Pre-2016 Retirees
Retired Central Govt Officer
FIXATION OF REVISED PENSION as per Para 10.1.67 , Sub para (i) of 7th CPC Report :
Shall First be fixed in the Pay Matrix on the basis of 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 th.e number of Increments he/she had earned in that Level while in Service, at the rate of 3 %. Fifty percent of the Total Amount so arrived at shall be the REVISED PENSION.
To arrive at the Notional Pay, the Number of Increments earned by the Retiree in the PAY SCALE AT THE TIME OF HIS RETIREMENT is to be DETERMINED based on the LAST BASIC PAY drawn in this PAY SCALE.
Hence, the Number of STAGES in the PAY SCALE at the time of Retirement from the STARTING PAY of the Pay Scale UPTO the .LAST BASIC PAY drawn DETERMINES the Number of Increments Earned (GAINED) by the Retiree.
Illustration on Fixation of Pension in Case 2 of Para 10.1.71 is RELEVANT.
In the above Illustration, it is mentioned that Pensioner retired at LAST PAY drawn of Rs.4000/- having drawn 9 Increments in the RETIRING PAY SCALE of Rs.3000-100-3500-125-4500.
The Number of STAGES in this PAY SCALE from the STARTING PAY ( Rs.3000/-) UPTO the LAST BASIC PAY (Rs..4000/-) drawn is obviously 9 (NINE) which is Indicative of the Number of Increments Earned (GAINED) by the Retiree.
In View of the above Explanation, THE NUMBER OF STAGES IN THE RETIRING PAY SCALE FROM THE STARTING PAY OF THE PAY SCALE
UPTO THE LAST PAY DRAWN SHOULD BE TREATED AS THE NUMBER OF INCREMENTS EARNED (GAINED) BY THE RETIREE in the Retiring Pay Scale.
This is for the Purpose of Fixation of Pension as per the Formulation shown in Para 10.1.67, Sub Para (i) of the 7th CPC Report.
Otherwise, Junior Pensioners will get MORE REVISED PENSION THAN SENIOR PENSIONERS resulting in Disparity and Injustice.
This may please given wide Circulation and brought to the Notice of Implementation Committee.
I am THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL to You Sirs, for Your Needful action.
