Subject: Revision of pension: MoD letter dated 3.9.2015.
I am directed to refer to email dated 4th September 2015 addressed to Hon’ble RRM regarding MoD letter dated 3/9/2015 issued in implementation of DoP&PW OM dated 30.7.2015 regarding benefit of fitment table in revision of pension with effect from 1.1.2006 instead of 24.9.2012, is placed opposite for kind perusal please.
2. It has been decided that with effect from 01.01.2006 pension/family pension of Pre-2006 JCOs/ORs Pensioners/family pensioners shall be determined as fifty and thirty percent respectively of the minimum of the fitment table for the Rank in the revised Pay Band as indicated under fitment tables annexed with 1/S/2008 and equivalent instructions for Navy and Air Force, plus Grade Pay corresponding to the pre-revised scale from which the pensioner had retired/discharged/invalided out/died including Military Service Pay and X group pay.
3. However, in case, the consolidated pension/family pension calculated as per Para 4.1 of this Ministry's letter No. 17(4)/2008(1)/D(Pen/Pol) dated 11.11.2008 is higher than the pension/family pension calculated in the manner indicated above, the same (higher consolidated pension/family pension) will continue to be treated as basic pension/ family pension. Further, where revised pension in terms of GOI, MOD letter No.PC-10(1)/2009-D (Pen/Pol) dated 08.03.2010 and No. 1(13)/2012/D (Pen/Policy) dated 17.01.2013 is higher than the rate indicated in annexure attached with letter dated 3.9.2015 then the same will continue to be treated as basic pension/ family pension from 1.07.2009 and 24.09.2012 respectively.
4. Accordingly, revised tables indicating minimum guaranteed pension/ Ordinary Family Pension has been annexed as annexure-A ( Army pensioners), Annexure -B (Air Force pensioners), and Annexure-C (Navy pensioners) to MOD letter dated 3.9.2015.
5. In view of the above, a pre 2006 JCO/ORs pensioner/ family pension will get pension as indicated in the table w.e.f 1.1.2006 or as per MoD letter dated 11.11.2008 or from 1.7.2009(only pensioner and not family pensioners) as per MoD letter dated 8.3.2010 or w.e.f. 24.9.2012 as per MoD letters dated 17.1.2013 in respect of pensioners/ family pensioner of JCO/ORS whichever is more beneficial.(Manoj Sinha)
