Pay Scales of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th CPC for Fixation of Pension on Notional Pay

7th CPC Revised Pension Calculation as per Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare Order dated 12th May 2017 [ See the Order ] is still not clear for Pensioners.

Pay Scales of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th CPC for Fixation of Pension on Notional Pay

For arriving the Notional pay, it is stated in the DoPPW Order that,

It has been decided that the revised pension/family pension w.e.f. 01.01.2016 in respect of all Central civil pensioners /family pensioners, including CAPF’s, who retired/died prior to 01.01.2016, may be revised by notionally fixing their pay in the pay matrix recommended by the 7th CPC in the level corresponding to the pay in the pay scale /pay band and grade pay at which they retired/died.

This will be done by notional pay fixation under each intervening Pay Commission based on the Formula for revision of pay. While fixing pay on notional basis, the pay fixation formulae approved by the Government and other relevant instructions on the subject in force at the relevant time shall be strictly followed.

Arriving of the Notional pay in Successive Pay scale is not made clear in the Examples given in the DoPPW order for Revision of Pension on Notional Pay. The methodology applied for arriving the Notional Pay in Successive pay scales should be shown in the Examples. The formulae adopted to revise the Pay in each intervening Pay Commission should be shown with the illustrative examples. Then only it will be arrived without any confusion.

At least to help the CG Pensioners, Pay Scales of 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Pay Commission is given below. However they can identify the Pay Scales of Successive Pay Commission

  1. There is something wrong. The 4th case given in Examples under Annexure 1 on page 6 is at variance with the example given by the 7th CPC on page 396 in para 10.1.70 (Case 1). But, both were talking about the same Pensioner A, who retired on a pay of 79,000 (and pension of 39,500) in the scale 67000-79000 on 31.5.2015.
    The 7th CPC took only 3 increments to move from 67000 to 79000 in 6th CPC scales, but the Order of 12.5.2017 is taking 5 increments.
    The 7th CPC declared that pension calculated using a multiple of 2.57 is actually higher than that obtained through “notional pay and earned increments” option, viz. 1,01,515 against 99,550.
    On the contrary, the 4th case in the order of 12.5.2017 decrees that the reverse is true, viz. 1,02,550 against 1,01,515.
    Has the Govt. corrected or modified 7th CPC calculations? If so, why have we not been informed? Will the Director Mr. Harjit Singh please clarify?
