Fixation of basic pension on 01-01-2016 in terms of option 1 and payment of arrears


IMPLEMENTATION OF 7TH CPC recommendations accepted by the Central Govt-Fixation of basic pension on 01-01-2016 in terms of option 1 and payment of arrears reg. All the Govt Departments may be directed to straightway implement option 1 in all cases wherever it is monetarily more beneficial to the concerned pensioner(s) without wasting any time waiting for his exercising the option. The number of increments earned by a pensioner in the last post held by him immediately before retirement will accordingly be the same as 'THE NUMBER OF STAGES IN THE RETIRING PAY SCALE FROM THE STARTING PAY OF THE PAY SCALE UP TO THE LAST PAY DRAWN'. THIS SHOULD BE TREATED AS THE NUMBER OF INCREMENTS EARNED (GAINED) BY THE RETIREE in the Retiring Pay Scale..This is for the Purpose of Fixation of Pension as per the Formulation shown in Para 10.1.67, Sub Para (i) of the 7th CPC Report i.e. Option 1. This is the most logical method for determining the number of increments earned (Gained) by a retiree. It also eliminates the need of rampaging through old records most of which may not be available in proper order, the fact that the concerned Govt. Departments are the sole and exclusive custodians of their employees’ service records totally responsible for its proper upkeep and maintenance, notwithstanding. So far as the reconstruction of records is concerned there is no Govt. record which cannot be reconstructed.
