[triservicesveterans] PENSION TABLES FOR 7TH CPC FOR JCOS & OR & FAMILY PENSIONS

Dear Sir,

In spite of my repeated advices to JCOs and OR that they should wait for tables to be issued by PCDA (Pensions) Allahabad for their pensions in 7th CPC, they are pestering me to inform of their 7th CPC pensions, increase in pension and likely arrears. I have made the calculations by taking pensions of JCO, OR and Family Pensioners (Ordinary Family Pensioners, Special Family Pensioners and Liberalised Family Pensioners) as in OROP in Circular 555 in various tables and multiplied it by 2.25 to get OROP pension as on Jan 2016 and multiplied basic pension of OROP with 2.57 to get pension in 7th CPC w.e.f. Jan 2016. The arrears is difference between the pension as on Jan 2016 with DR of OROP and of 7th CPC with DR at 0%. You can circulate the same through your group mails. I can not say with any degree of guarantee that JCOs and OR will get the same pension hike and arrears in 7th CPC i.e. w.e.f Jan 2016 when the same are given out by PCDA (Pensions) Allahabad. So do not blame me if they get less or more pension than what I worked out. If you find any mistakes in my calculations do point them out to me for making corrections. warm regards, Brig CS Vidyasagar (Rtd) 9493191380 TSEWA-140 East or West, TSEWA is the Best - Brig Jugal Kishore Bajaj Please quote your membership no in your mails like I do __._,_.___

The minimum amount of pension stands raised to Rs 9000. It was Rs 375, Rs 1275 and Rs 3500 during the 4th, 5th and 6th CPCs respectively.
