DOP&PW is likely to issue Fitment Tables & Ready Reckoners soon for Revised Pension of Pre-2016 Pensioners as per OM Dated 12-5-2017 - as requested by RSCWS & BPS - to avoid delay in implementation of orders due to delay in issuing the Revised PPOs by the PSAs - i.e. the Offices from which the Pensioner Retired.

Dear Sir,

Subject: Issue of Fitment Tables for Revision of Pension as per Notional Pay in 7th CPC Pay Matrix

Regarding: Implementation of Government's decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission - Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners. Reference: DOP&PW OM NO.38/37/2016-P&. PW(A) Dated 12-5-2017

Kind attention is invited towards the DOP&PW OM Dated 12-5-2017 regarding Implementation of Government's decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission - Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners.

Incidentally, Fitment Tables and the Ready Reckoners have not been issued with the said orders as was done after every Pay Commission - both in respect of the Pay and Pension.

This will make the Revision of Pension very difficult, and time consuming as Notional Pay has to be fixed from one Pay Commission to the next since the Retirement of the employee for Revising their Pension as per Notional Pay in the Pay Matrix of 7th CPC.

This will substantially delay the issue of Revised PPOs and implementation of the said orders this time, causing hardship to the old Pensioners.

It is, therefore, earnestly requested that
i) Scale-wise Fitment Tables and Ready Reckoners may please be issued early for the Pensioners who had retired in the regimes of various Pay Commissions (especially those who retired from Pay Scales of Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Pay Commissions.

ii) A dedicated Software may please be posted on the Pensioners Portal for the Revision of pension of pre-2016 & post-2016 pensioners/family pensioners and for expeditious issue of the Revised PPOs and for placing them on the Internet.
Yours truly,
(Harchandan Singh),
Secretary General, RSCWS.

Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED


Option 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of pension/family pension of Pre 2016 retirees DENIED

How, the battle is lost
One rank one pension denied

OPTION 1 recommended by 7th CPC for the revision of Pension/Family pension of pre-2016 Denied inspite of availability of service records of over 80% of old pensioners.

The alternative given vide OM dated 12.5.2017 though to some extent it will benefit a good % of old pensioners, it cannot make up the lifelong loss old pensioners will suffer due to denial of option 1. Ever since Honourable Supreme Court land mark judgement dated_____ in UOI vs D S Nakra. In the hide and seek game with UOI for 100% parity between present & past Civil Pensioners Bharat Pensioners Samaj had this time secured Penalty Corner but the Babu in DOP & PW foiled the final hit.

Why only DOP& PW, our own people must share the blame! The war veterans whom we had been supporting for years in their struggle for one rank one pension were the first to oppose 'Bharat Pensioners Samaj' demand for 100% parity/one rank one pension through electronic media as well as through representations (backed by their serving HODs) to GOI pleading that they only are entitled to this benefit and not the Civil pensioners

The final blow was delivered in the 7th meeting of feasibility committee on 17.10.2016 when as mentioned in Para 4 of the official minutes vide No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) GOI Ministry of Personnel, P.G. and Pensions -DOP &PW dated the 31st October, 2016 (placed here under). JCM (staff side) agreed with govt's alternative proposal.

Retired Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers demand payment of pending DA


Retired Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers demand payment of pending DA

An association of retired Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers has written to the Centre over the delay in payment of dearness allowance (DA) to them.

The Retired Teachers Welfare Society, which shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said the DA dues are pending since July 2016.

"We wrote to the prime minister in March and again in April drawing his attention to the issue of non-payment of 7 per cent DA to retired teachers of KVS. The PMO forwarded the letter to the Ministry of Human Resources Development in mid- April, but no action has been taken yet," the society's general secretary, C M Dubey, said today.

The letter was sent by the Bhopal chapter of the society.

On recommendations of the Union Cabinet, 7% DA was payable from July 2016 and subsequently 4% from January 2017 to the regular as well as retired employees of the Central government, including KVS teachers, Dubey said.

"The DA is being paid to regular employees, but not to retired ones. This is causing hardship to a large number of retired personnel," he said.
