  2. C S Parthasarathy

    What exactly is the revised 1st option in case of pre-2016 pensioners? Is it just on the pension as per PPO and if so,what is the multiplying factor? Can someone clarify please.

  3. Mohammad Maqbool

    Dear sir,

    Please give benefits under new MACP scheme on 7th CPC for erstwhile Group ‘D’ employees whose service about 33 years.

    The fact of the matter is that all pensioners are in possession of Pension Payment Order (PPO) issued to every pensioner. The decision on the modified formulation may not be all that attractive as claimed to be. However, if it is considered ‘more beneficial’ to more pensioners than the first option recommended by the 7th CPC, let it be an additional option known as modified option. First option recommended by the 7th CPC should not be scarified at the behest of the modified option to leave the pensioners in lurch who possess relevant records, information etc., which is the most advantageous in their cases if they give option under first option. Therefore the claim that the first option was not found to be feasible to implement it on account of non-availability of records would pale into insignificance. Where in some cases, the First Option, if implemented would lead to anomalies, way out could be worked out to redress the grievance. Which GoI order concerning with amounts/funds is not prone to anomaly? Let there be three options viz., First Option, Second Option and Modified Option, let the pensioners wisdom prevail to choose which would be more advantageous to them. It is not good to belittle the First Option to nullity, after all the Govt. earlier have decided to accept it in principle. All Associations and Federations should take note of this. Good Luck.

  5. Dear Sir, Employees whose DOB was 1.1.1956 forced to retire a month advance and affected 7CPC, will they get justice? Of course 10 years they had to wait for salary hike and for 1 day they lost all the benefits? Is there any committee formed? If not, kindly consider.

    Pity indeed is the rejection of first option by the Govt. The modified formula would be an injustice to those who did not avail ACP and MACP benefits during their service in respect of pre 2006 pensioners. Pensioner’s Associations must gather factual details to demonstrate the disadvantage of the modified formula to the first option recommended by the 7CPC. Agitate the injustice before CATs for justice, where it would be easy for convincing the judges, since Govt has accepted the first option in principle. Good luck.

    Any deadline fixed for First option of pensioners? Whether pensioners associations be pleased to update on this? It is hoped the issue still lies with the empowered committee. When the relief could be expected?

  9. RBKV Ramanan, Advocate

    Yes, one can commute 40% of new basic pension after restoration of earlier comutation of pension. GoI orders are very clear on this. This is known as second or subsequent commutation.

  12. Mr. S R Biswas, Kolkata

    Whether re-commutation (after 15 year) of central govt. Pensioner is possible?

  13. Kindly inform what is happening in case of 7thCPC implementation in CSIR and other similar organisation?
