Sub: Implementation of Government’s decision on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission- Revision of pension of pre- 2016 pensioners/family pensioners etc-reg.
I am directed to say that based on the decisions of the Government, Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare has issued O.Ivl. No. 38/37/2016-P&PW(A) dated 12.05.2017 for fixation of pension/family pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners to the higher of the two formulations. A copy of the OM. is circulated herewith for information and necessary action.
2.The pension/family pension of all pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners shall be revised in line with instructions contained in the DoP&PW OM. dated 12.05.2017. The higher of the two formulation i.e. (i) the pension/family pension already revised in accordance with DoP&PW O.M. dated 4.8.2016 or (ii) the revised pension/family pension as worked out in accordance with para 4 of the DoP&PW OM. dated 12.5.2017, shall be treated as revised pension/family pension w.e.f 1.1.2016. It shall be the responsibilities of the Head of Department and concerned Director of Accounts (Postal) to revise the pension/family pension of pre-2016 pensioners/family pensioners w.e.f 1.1.2016 in accordance with these orders and to issue a revised pension payment authority.
3.As envisaged in the DoP&PW O.M., the Pension sanctioning Authority (PSA) would impress upon the concerned Head of Office for fixation of pay on notional basis at the earliest. The information can be obtained in Proforma A. Based on notional pay so fixed, the revision proposal will be sent by Pension Sanctioning Authority to concerned DA (P) to apply necessary checks and issue revised authority under the existing PPO number. To facilitate fixation of notional pay, DA (P) will provide copy of PPO/pension papers to concerned PSA immediately on requisition. All PSAs will maintain records of processing cases of retirees year-wise in Proforma 8. DA (P) will maintain data of proposal received and authority issued in software as has been done in case of 6th CPC revision of PPOs.
4.Since there will be large number of cases for revision, concerted efforts of all authorities will be required to accomplish the task. It is requested to take immediate action for revision of pension/family pension at the earliest.
This issues with approval of Secretary (Posts).
