Absence of records of verification of service – What says CCS (Pension) Rules?

Absence of records of verification of service – What says CCS (Pension) Rules?

Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 1972 on 29.8.2014 that in the absence of records of verification of service, the retiring Government servant may submit a written statement on plain paper stating that he had in fact rendered service for that period, and shall, at the foot of the statement, make and subscribe to a declaration as to the truth of that statement. The Head of Office shall, after taking into consideration the facts in the written statement admit that portion of service as having been rendered for the purpose of calculating the pension of that Government servant”.

Problems of Pensioners

The financial burden on account of pension has shown increasing trend because of, inter-alia, increase in the number of pensioners, periodic release of dearness relief, etc. it is because of pension liability likely to assume unsustainable proportions that the Government had taken decision in December 2003 to switch over form the “defined benefit” based pension to the “defined contribution” based pension scheme in case of Central Government civilian employees (except the Armed Forces) joining on or after 01.01.2004.

As regards lack of proper maintenance of records regarding delay in sanction of pension and other related problems after the employees retirement, a provision has recently been made by amending the Central Civil Service (Pension) Rules, 1972 on 29.8.2014 that in the absence of records of verification of service, the retiring Government servant may submit a written statement on plain paper stating that he had in fact rendered service for that period, and shall, at the foot of the statement, make and subscribe to a declaration as to the truth of that statement. The Head of Office shall, after taking into consideration the facts in the written statement admit that portion of service as having been rendered for the purpose of calculating the pension of that Government servant.

This was stated by Shri Jayant Sinha, Minister of State in the Ministry of Finance in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
