Subject: Revision of Pension of Pre 2006 Pensioners - Reg. Benefit of Up-gradation of Pay Scales Upgraded t Merged as per recommendations of the 6th CPC.
i) Resolution of GOI No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 29-8-08 & OM Dated 1-9-08,
ii) DOP&PW O.M. F.No.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 3-10-08,14-10-08 & 11-2-09
iii) DOP&PW O.M. F.NO.38/37/08-P&PW (A) dated 30-7-2015
iv) Item 7 of ATR ot 28th Meeting of SCOVA held on 27-6-2016
In continuation of our Memoranda dated 24-2-2016 and 12-9-2016, we draw your kind attention to the following facts:
i.DOP&PW has mentioned as under in Col. 4 of the ATR of the 28th Meeting of SCOVA held on 27-6-2016 ii "Department ol Expenditure has observed that the upgraded Grade Pay of Rs. 4600- was given subsequently outside the recommendation of the 6th CPC. Since this up-gradation is post 6th CPC decision, it is not applicable to those who are holding the pre-revised scale of Rs 6500-10,500 - and retired before 01.012006."
iii. From the above cited observations of Department of Expenditure, ii is apparent that the DOE had objected to the extension of the said benefit to such of the Pensioners who had retired from the posts upgraded outside the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission. Incidentally, DOE had earlier agreed to give the benefit of subsequent upgrading to old Pensioners in case ol $ 30 wherein PB 4 + GP 12000 was upgraded to 67000-79000 (HAG). But ironically, similar benefit of subsequent upgrading is now being denied to those who retired from the scale Rs. 6500-10500.
iv. In any case, from the above it is clearly inferred that DOE had no objection to give Ihe said benefit of upgradation to the Pensioners who had retired from the Posts which had been upgraded as per recommendations of the 6th CPC.
v. We as of now, seek relief to this extent alone, notwithstanding the benefit allowed by ihe various Courts even to those Pensioners who had retired from posts which were upgraded outside the recommendations of 6th CPC.
vi. It is, therefore, requested, that the benefit of upgradation / merger of Pay Scales as per recommendation of 6th CPC as per Section 11 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008 may please be given for the Revision ol Pension ot at least those of Pre-2006 Pensioners who had retired from posts upgraded by 6th CPC.
