Pre-2006 central govt retirees to get pension hike

Pre-2006 central govt retirees to get pension hike

New Delhi: Pre-2006 pensioners will now get a hike in pension, in addition to the arrears, as the Centre has done away with a provision of having 33-year service for earning full pension.

The Department of Pensions and Pensioners Welfare has decided that the revised consolidated pension of pre-2006 pensioners shall not be lower than 50 per cent of the minimum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay even if they had served for less than 33 years at the time of retirement.

As per rules, a central government servant is entitled to receiving superannuation pension on completion of at least 10 years of service. With effect from January 1, 2006, pension is calculated with reference to average emoluments — the average of the basic pay drawn during the last 10 months of service or last basic pay drawn whichever is higher.

Before 2006, for service of less than 33 years, amount of pension was proportionate to the actual service broken into completed half-year periods.

Several petitions were filed in Central Administrative Tribunal and in Supreme Court against this.

“The arrears of revised pension would be payable with effect from January 1, 2006,” said the government order No. 38/37/08-P&PW (A) issued on April 6.

All ministries have been asked to revise pension of all those pre-2006 pensioners who had rendered less than 33 years of service at the time of retirement. Revised Pension Payment Orders in all these cases may also be issued immediately, it said.

‘Come and Play': Govt tells central goverment employees

New Delhi: Central government employees and their families can now take part in sports and fitness activities like swimming, badminton and table tennis at top facilities of SAI under the ‘Come and Play’ scheme.

According to a DoPT order, the employees, their families and dependants can use various facilities of Sports Authority of India, including at Jawaharlal Nehru stadium and Major Dhyan Chand national stadium.

The facilities would be available on a first-come-first- serve basis and the rates would not exceed Rs 100 per person, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) order said.

There are about 50 lakh central government employees working across the country.

The facilities being offered are swimming, badminton, table tennis and fitness centres at both the stadiums, the DoPT said.

The ‘Come and Play’ scheme was initiated for optimum utilisation of SAI sports facilities across the country by providing youth from local communities and sports enthusiasts with an opportunity to get trained under expert coaches.


7th CPC arrears paid as bonds – Totally wrong and unwanted – Karnataka COC

7th CPC arrears paid as bonds – Totally wrong and unwanted – Karnataka COC

7th CPC Pay Statement

There are various reports on 7th Central Pay commission on the media on fitment formula, arrears being paid as bonds , these reports are totally wrong and unwanted , these confuse the Central Government Employees, if you read the below table it is quite clear that a Group “C” employee shall get.

The true picture, as per the 7th CPC recommendations has provided only at 14% wage hike at Group “C” level it is only ranging from Rs 2240 to Rs 3500/ increase per month, and at Group “B” level ranging from Rs 4000 to Rs 6500/ increase per month.

The Empowered Committee is likely to rectify and change the fitment formula in that case , As per media reports the committee may recommend a minimum wage of Rs 20000/- or Rs 21000/- against the demand of Rs 26,000/ of the staff side , the Central Government Employees (Group “B” & Group “C” ) and shall get a salary increase of just Rs 4000/ to Rs 16000/- only , that is also too meager considering the aspect of price rise and modern day expenditures, Secondly arrears of six months if the 7th CPC is implemented shall be only Rs 8000/- per month on average per employee per month , for six months it will just at Rs 50000/- per employee only , this amount will not affect the Central Government finances,


So don’t believe any news paper reports, Secondly there is no change in allowances expect HRA, that too its rates are reduced by the 7th CPC and also many allowances have been withdrawn. This is saving for the Government.

Hence we should not bother too much on these reports, instead we should educate the members and prepare for struggle, so that we get at least get a minimum wage of Rs 24,000/- ( 50 % wage hike without allowances) , as allowances are not taken into pension benefit.

Comradely yours
General Secretary
