Sir,

I shall be highly grateful if you could throw some light on the following queries?
Your answer to the queries will enable me to put it on the IESM info board:

Has GOI letter been issued on waiving off of 33 yrs service?

Who are the persons it is applicable to:
1. Pre-2006 pensioners?
2. Family pensioners (if the deceased pensioner has not completed 33 yrs. service.)
3. Effective date?
4. Effective date for arrears?

Other useful details/explanation.

Thanks.

Sir,

The GOI Letter eliminating the need of 33 years' service for full pension has been issued only for Post-Jan 2006 PBOR and Post-Sept 2008 Officers. Another revised letter is likely to be issued for Post-Jan 2006 Officers too.

Your queries :

1. No, it is not applicable to pre-06 pensioners. Neither on the civil side nor on the military side.

2. Family pension has NO link with 33 years' service since ordinary family pension is calculated @ 30% of basic pay and there is no requirement of rendering any minimum service for earning a family pension.

3. Effective date for post-6th CPC retirees as stated above is Jan 2006 for PBOR and Sept 2008 for officers and civilians. It may be revised to Jan 2006 for Military officers soon.

4. Date of arrears for all revised pensionary modalities for pre-06 retirees is 01 Jan 06.

Thanks

  1. Sir,
    If waiving off of 33 years service is not applicable for pre-2006 pensioners, atleast 5 years weightage can be given instead of granting full pension to those pensioners, who have completed 20 years of service as under:-
    (Qualifying Service + 5 Years0
    SINCE DEFENCE PERSONNEL ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CONTINUE IN THE SAME SERVICE UPTO THE AGE OF 60, IT WILL BE MORE BENEFICIAL TO ALL PRE-2006 PENSIONERS. THEY WILL BE HAPPY ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF 'OROP' SCHEME AND THERE WILL BE NO OBJECTION TO IT FROM ANY SIDE. THANKS,
    WITH REGARDS.

  2. PCDA(Pension) Allahabad vide their circular No.350 gives a relaxation for enhanced pension to soldiers upto the rank of Havildars. The pensionary award to soldiers and Officers is 15 yrs and 20 yrs respectively. It has been seen in websites that maximum pension to be50% of pay to be delinked from 33 yrs to 20 yrs with minimum scale of pay of the pay band or the average pay drawn in last 10 months.Now, at this stage delinking of 33 yrs and above service of soldiers and award of pension to the soldiers to thier maximum scale of pay is absurd. In this regard PCDA (Pension) has issued an order vide GOI Letter No. 14(3)/2004-D(Pen/Ser) Vol III dated 1.2.06 and 2.5.06.
    May I request to my veteran brothers that services rendered to the nation for 20 yrs and 40 yrs may be considered in correct perspectives and let the justice prevail.
