Sub: Meeting of the Committee set up to examine the feasibility of implementation of recommendation of 7th CPC for revision of pension of pre-2016 pensioners-reg.
Meeting with the Government on 7th CPC recommendation for determination of pay in the case of pre-2016 pensioners, examination of the feasibility of option No.1, was held today at 10:00 hrs.
The Official Side again stressed that option No.1 is not feasible of implementation because of non-availability of records of lot many retirees. However, after discussion the Staff Side welcomed the alternative suggested by Official Side in the meeting held on 06th October 2016 and, gave following suggestions.
“The Pensioners/family pensioners may be allowed to choose any one of the following three options:-
(a) 2.57 time of the present pension if that is beneficial.
(b) Option No.1. Recommended by the 7th CPC, if that is beneficial for them.
(c) to determine the Pension on the basis of the suggestion placed by the Pension Department on 6.10.2016 i.e. extension of the benefit of pension determination recommended by the 5th CPC (viz. arriving at notional pay in the 7th CPC by applying formula for pay revision for serving employees in each Pay Commission and consequent pension fixation) to all pre-20I6 Pensioners/family pensioners, if that becomes beneficial to them.”
The Official Side gave assurance to examine the proposal.

pension dept on 6th octber 2016.Learned experts please illustrate.
Please show by way of illustration how option 3 is to be applied
AFTER DILLY-DALLYING FOR A LING TIME.THE GOVERNMENT OS NOW GOING BACK ON THE 7TH PAY COMMISSION RECOMMENDATIONS–FEASIBILITY OF FIXING ON OPTION 1
M!.D.O.By suggestion is to ask the pensioners to give a declaration as to their :
Date of appointment
Date of retirement and Cadre at which retired
Grade and pay at which retired, and equivalent 6th PC scale
Present basic pension , grade pay and No.of increments earned in that grade
This will solve the problem for the official side
